Eat Real Food takes you on a journey of creating a solid foundation for life to know what plant foods to eat and why.
What you choose to put on your plate and into your body each day plays one of the most important roles in creating your health, weight, energy, and wellbeing. Not only that, but today, what each one of us eats has a direct impact on our healthcare, environment, and society. We cast our votes for the kind of world we want to live in most effectively based on what we spend our money on and what we choose to eat. When you make the choice to eat whole plant foods, you are making the choice to not only help yourself, but help other humans, animals, and our entire Earth.
Eat Real Food is not a diet or quick-fix, but a lifestyle whose success depends on a change in perspective and habits.
Whether you are interested in reducing animal products, like meat and dairy, or removing them from your diet, or looking to adopt a vegan diet in a nutritionally-sound manner, this course will educate, inspire, and empower you to know how to eat right with confidence.
