Vegan diets are the way of the future. Many people might be considering or have recently chosen to become vegan for health, environmental and/or ethical reasons. While refraining from eating or using animal products is a step in a compassionate direction, it does not guarantee good nutrition. In fact, did you know that you could be vegan without actually eating a single serving of fresh fruit or vegetables? Eating plant-based food is very important, however, what is done to the plants before they are consumed is equally important from a health perspective.
In this course, you will learn science-based reasons why a whole food, plant-based (WFPB) diet is the superior choice for optimum nutrition and for the reversal of many diseases. In addition, you will learn strategies to transition and maintain a healthy plant-based diet with the aid of lots of vegan recipes. Upon completion of the course, you will have a strong foundation in nutrition counselling, so that you can educate your clients and formulate meal plans to meet their specific needs and challenges.
Many people adopt a vegan lifestyle to promote a more humane and sustainable world– become a certified Vegan Nutrition Counsellor and spread the compassion.
The key to a nutritionally sound vegan diet is variety. A healthy and varied vegan diet includes fruits, vegetables, plenty of leafy greens, whole grains, nuts, seeds, and legumes.
Major topics covered:
- Plant-based, Wholefood Nutrition
