In this lively and informative online presentation, Registered Dietician Vesanto Melina will share her methods for following a plant-based diet that’s healthy, delicious and easy.
There are many reasons to increase your veggies and reduce the meat in your daily diet. You may want to lower your risk of chronic disease, combat climate change by reducing emissions from animal farming, or simply be kinder to our animal kin.
Some of us are starting to add a few vegetarian meals to the week’s menu, while others have already taken the plunge and gone vegan. Wherever you are on the plant-based journey, you’ll be sure to gain valuable insights at this interactive online event.
