Plant-based diets have been linked to lower risk of obesity and many chronic diseases, such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, inflammation and cancer. Eating a plant-based diet reduces harm to animals and is better for the environment.

This workshop will suit those thinking of eating more plant based meals or already on a vegan or vegetarian diet and wanting to make sure they are getting all the nutrients they need.

Linda is an experienced vegan dietitian who will help build your plant based nutrition confidence and conquer uncertainty.

Topics covered in the workshop:
– Evidence based benefits of plant based diets
– Major nutrition concerns and how to achieve a balanced plant based diet.
– A guide to vegan/vegetarian protein sources
– Maximizing nutrient absorption
– How to put it all together including many plant based meal and snack ideas
