Food for Life: Kickstart Your Health - 7 Week Series
The Power of Food for Healthy Weight Management
Run by Rowena Humphreys, a certified Food For Life Instructor, we're excited to be running cooking and food education classes based on the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine's (PCRM) evidence based approach.
The guiding principle of the Kickstart approach is not restricting amounts of foods but rather choosing the right foods. Weight loss, lower cholesterol, better diabetes control, lower blood pressure, as well as improvements in energy and mood are just some of the many benefits people experience with this evidence based approach, designed by doctors, registered nutritionists and dieticians. This is not about dieting, it's a way of life.
Through a weekly series of classes, you'll discover which foods are optimal for weight management, learn about various health topics including blood pressure and digestion, and get empowered with the practical cooking skills needed to help you on your journey to better health. All the receipes you'll learn are cheap to make, delicious, easy and take under 20 minutes.
In our seven week series of classes, attendees participate in a 21 day plant-based challenge, get involved in cooking demonstrations, taste delicious dishes (dinner is included!) all in a supportive group setting.

Susan Levin, M.S., R.D., the director of nutrition education for PCRM says: ‘Losing weight has never been easier. Participants can expect to lose a pound a week without counting calories. Many experience significant health benefits, including lowered cholesterol and blood pressure, elimination of chronic pain, and increased energy.' Dr Levin also says 'fruits, vegetables, and whole grains vegan foods are naturally low in fat, chock-full of fiber, and filled with immune-boosting antioxidants and phytochemicals. They will naturally tame your appetite and boost metabolism.'
