Upcoming Workshop – Get Planted!

March 1, 2018

WHAT: 

Eating a more plant-based diet has been shown to help prevent, treat and even reverse some of our leading chronic diseases such as high blood pressure, heart disease and type 2 diabetes.

During this mini-workshop, we will introduce you to plant-based eating, discuss the benefits, and answer any questions you may have, including: Will I get enough protein? Is it expensive? Is it safe for children?

We’ll also share the fundamentals of introducing more plant-based foods into your daily lifestyle from sharing easy recipes and having delicious samples for you to try. We will also review some fantastic products available at Generation Green and how you can incorporate them into your diet.

If you’re curious about the benefits of a plant-based diet and are looking to move along the diet continuum towards more whole plant-based foods, this workshop is for you!
