Nothing will benefit health
or increase the chances of survival of life on earth
as the evolution to a vegetarian diet.

Plant-Based Nutrition Series

September 7-October 12, 2017
Thursdays 6-7:30 pm; $159
with Michelle Marlahan

What you put in your body is probably the most important decision for your health that you make every day. There is no other factor that impacts your likelihood of fending off disease more than what you eat.

Research shows that the only diet that helps people avoid and reverse diseases like heart disease (the #1 killer in America), type II diabetes and hypertension is a plant-based diet.

You might think of stereotypical vegetarian food as bland cardboard (if you’ve ever been to Mother on K Street, you know that’s not true!).

There are many myths about a plant-based diet that we will debunk in this series, such as:

  • how much protein you need
  • the only way to get protein is through animal products (did you know that all vegetables have protein in them?)
  • vegetarian/vegan food doesn’t taste good
  • you won’t have many food options if you cut out animal products
  • certain kinds of meat aren’t that bad for you
  • the body needs meat
  • you can’t be an athlete as a vegetarian or vegan (tell that to ultra-endurance athlete Rich Roll and dozens of other NFL and NBA players and body builders)

There are many reasons people move to more plant-based nutrition:

  • prevent and reverse disease
  • have more energy, vibrancy and mental clarity
  • reduce the number of animals raised and slaughtered for food
  • help fight global warming (did you know that animal agriculture is responsible for 18% of greenhouse gas emissions, more than the combined exhaust from all forms of transportation?)

If you are curious about cutting out or down on your animal product consumption, come see how it can be easy, fun, delicious and critical for the longevity of the earth.

We will talk about how to transition to less or no animal product safely and deliciously.

No judgment, no shame. Small steps make a big difference in your health and for the planet. What you do matters. Come see!
