Event Types :
Join us for the live webinar presentation of “Food as Medicine: Vegan Cooking” on Wednesday, August 17 at 11 AM.

In this webinar presentation of the live program hosted at the Center for Health & Wellbeing, you’ll explore the flavors of a vegan diet with Registered Dietitian and Culinary Medicine Expert, Allison Harrell, and AdventHealth family medicine physician George Guthrie, MD, author of “Eat Plants Feel Whole.” Did you know that whole food plant proteins will keep you fuller longer than animal protein due to the fiber content? But does plant protein taste good enough to make this a lifestyle or incorporate it in some of your meals? Join this webinar and find out. Trust us — you will LOVE the dessert recipe!

Registered webinar participants will receive a booklet with the following recipes:

  • Tex Mex Tofu Scramble
  • Smashed Chickpea Salad
  • Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip

This program is presented by Allison Harrell and is hosted by the Winter Park Health Foundation in collaboration with AdventHealth.
