Learn How To Thrive

Vegan diets are the way of the future. Many people consider or choose to become vegan in order to improve their health. Others may embrace a vegan lifestyle for environmental 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? It is important to eat plant-based food, however, what is done to the plants before they are consumed is equally important from a health perspective. 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.  Understanding the importance of eating whole foods is just as crucial to good health now as it ever was, as more and more companies capitalize on “veganizing” their products, we must ask ourselves “Is this good for the environment, the animals and me?” In our course, you will learn that you don’t have to sacrifice taste for health.

Upon completion of this vegan nutrition 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.
