Part of the value of this Plant Based Nutrition program is to help you to understand the powerful effects of the diet choices we make each day—and how changing these may dramatically improve our health and well-being. These improvements occur more quickly than once believed possible. Connect the dots between what you eat and how you feel. Eat predominantly fruits, vegetables, whole grains and legumes.  These foods are rich in good carbs, good fats, good proteins, and other protective substances. There are at least 100,000 substances in these foods that have powerful anti-cancer, anti-heart-disease and anti-aging properties.

This is an unique and comprehensive 6 week Plant Based Nutrition Program (3 hours duration each class per week for 6  weeks) and it is an excellent blend of practical work (making and tasting various healthy & delicious mainly raw food recipes and home-make Herbal remedies) and food educational theory & knowledge based around the do’s & don’t of good food education and nutrition, and knowledge in the area of Plant-Based Nutrition and healthy  clean eating and living.

5 of the course modules will be based on food, nutrition and recipes and 1 module will be an Herbal Medicine Making workshop where you will learn how to make your own herbal syrups, infused oils, herbal balms, etc. and get samples to take home.
