Join us for Transitioning to a Plant-Focused Diet (Webinar) on Wednesday, October 20 at 11 AM.

One of the most powerful things you can do to improve your health, boost your energy, and prevent chronic diseases is to transition to a plant-focused diet. Studies show that many chronic diseases can be prevented, controlled, or even reversed with a whole-food, plant-based diet. A plant-based diet can reduce the risk of type-2 diabetes, cardiac disease, some cancers, and other major illnesses. You may also experience reduced inflammation and more energy. Changing to a plant-based diet typically doesn’t happen overnight.

Start by making small changes that over time lead your diet to become more plant -focused. Join Dietitian and Culinary Medicine Specialist Allison Harrell for this “Digital Dinner Party” where she will demonstrate a variety of simple recipes that will support you in including more plant foods in your diet while using key kitchen and pantry ingredients.

Harrell will demonstrate the following recipes:

  • Italian “Sausage” Sauce with Mushrooms and Zoodles
  • White Bean Dip
  • Vegan Parmesan Cheese
  • Crispy Seasoned Tofu

Special Instructions: Upon registering, you will receive a booklet of recipes and ingredients for cooking along. At the end of this program, you will also receive an E-book with additional plant-powered dinner party recipes.

By participating in this session, you can expect to:

  • understand the importance of balancing nutrients when following a plant-focused lifestyle.
  • identify disease-­fighting benefi­ts of adopting a plant-focused lifestyle.
  • develop strategies in adopting a plant-focused lifestyle.

This program is presented by Allison Harrell and is hosted by the Winter Park Health Foundation.
