Plant-centered Eating Workshop

  • UP Yoga and Wellness 8083 Georgia Avenue Silver Spring, MD, 20910 United States (map)

This workshop will address the harmful myths surrounding plant-centered eating, specifically that vegans and vegetarians do not get enough protein and are at risk for other nutrient deficiencies on a plant-based diet. How is a plant-centered eating approach different from a plant-based diet? What nutrients are very important to make sure you are getting enough of whether you are on a plant-centered diet or a standard American diet? How do you know you're getting enough? Why are the nutrients from whole foods preferred over supplements and when should you choose to take supplements? What are the reasons for choosing a plant-centered approach to eating? What are some examples of a plant-centered meal? All of these questions will be addressed in the two-hour workshop. There will be ample time for questions at the end and all are welcome to bring fruit to share during the workshop to snack on. Please prepare to sit on the floor for this workshop.
