Many chronic diseases can be improved or even cured by following a healthy diet. Research has repeatedly shown that a whole-foods, plant-based diet leads to reduced disease, greater energy and a longer life. Eating for Life is a 7-week workshop that will help you make the transition to a healthier lifestyle and may help you reduce your medications.
Who is eligible? Anyone with high blood pressure, diabetes, cholesterol and/or another chronic disease that may be helped with diet. Additionally, anyone who is overweight and at high risk of the above conditions is welcome!
When is the class? Please check with Sandra Santillan for the next class. The class is generally offered three times per year, spring, summer and fall.
What is the cost? Classes are billed to participants’ insurance as a medical visit. Scholarships are available if needed.
What is the class structure? This is a 7-week hands-on class that will give you tools from day one to start changing your diet. Each week we provide you with a whole-foods, plant-based meal with recipes for each dish you try. We ask you to develop personal goals and share back the following week on your progress. Each week we discuss the research behind eating whole-foods, plant-based and give you tips on how to make the changes. We also take a supermarket tour in week two.
Participants are required to come to a pre-class exam, do bloodwork and get measurements taken prior to and after the class to mark your progress.
