VegUcation Series at Florida School of Holistic Living

Are you nutritionally confused?   Trying to eat Vegetarian or Vegan and not sure whether you are heading in the right direction?

Sign up for my VegUcation Series and Plant Based Nutrition Support Groups at the Florida School of Holistic Living!  You can also bring these workshops and support groups to your home or office. 

Here's the Schedule:

March 23: Bone Health (already happened!)
Find out the myths about Dairy and Bone Health and what foods and lifestyle practices you really need for healthy bones. You will also learn how to make your own nut milks and a simple kale dish.

April 6: Heart Health
Oils are not health foods, understand the latest science and how to prepare delicious meals without foods.  Food demo: oil free salad dressings with mixed salad greens (from my garden!), how to sautee without oil and bake with minimal oil.  Sample a veggie stir fry and muffins.

May 18: Protein
What our true protein needs are and how they can easily be met on a plant based diet. Food Demo: Quinoa, Kale and White Bean Stew

Plant Based Nutrition Support Group
2nd and 4th Wednesdays from 7-9pm, $10 per person

These meetings are for anyone who is trying to reduce or eliminate animal foods and processed foods from their diet.  You do not have to be Vegetarian or Vegan, though we welcome Vegetarians or Vegans who are struggling with their diet.  It is an open forum where you can ask questions and get help with suggestions from Gretchen and other members in the group to issues such as:

-A spouse who is not on board with changes
-Friends and relatives who oppose plant based eating
-Dealing with children who are exposed to poor food choices outside the home on a daily basis
-Concerns with meeting nutritional needs
