A monthly presentation and discussion group with a certified nutritionist on various topics related to a whole food plant based lifestyle.

About this event

If you’re interested in plant-based nutrition and have questions about getting enough nutrients, incorporating more plant-based foods into your meals, or just curious to know more about this lifestyle, then these sessions are for you.

Different topics are planned each week along with a review of the basics, including...

  • protein (animal/plant based, beans/greens, amounts, etc.)
  • dairy (milk, cheese, eggs, alternatives, industry, etc.)
  • carbs (simple, complex, starchy vegetables, GMO, etc.)
  • gluten (whole grains, processed, alternatives, etc.)
  • fat (saturates, healthy oils, omega 3/6/9, etc.)
  • Canada's Food Guide (changes, nutrition labels, etc.)
  • resources (videos, websites, tools, books, etc.)
  • recipes (substitutions, prepping, batch cooking, etc.)
  • nutritional density (red light foods, serving sizes, etc.)
  • and more...

With a mixture of story sharing, presenting, and short video clips, the workshop is scheduled to run for 1.5 hours with time afterwards for open Q&A.

Hope to see you there. Here's to your health!

ABOUT PLANT BASED NUTRITION

PLANT BASED NUTRITION isn’t a hard concept, but there are many concerns on a wide range of topics. Processed foods and animal-based foods may be a huge part of the Standard North American diet, but it doesn’t have to be that way.

We are able to eat a whole foods, unprocessed diet without eating animals AND get all the nutrients we need in the process. Wondering where you’ll get your protein, calcium, iron, and B vitamins? No need! You'll learn all about how to base your diet off whole foods, and how to eat a variety of vegetables, leafy greens, fruits, nuts, seeds, beans, and legumes.

Jim & Janet will share about how these foods contain a variety of nutrients, enough to sustain anyone not eating animal-based foods and how it adds more fiber, phytonutrients, and antioxidants into your diet, giving your body everything it needs.

Organizer Creating Connection Canada

Organizer of Plant Based Nutrition - Community, Conversation, Support

Creating Connection is a network of welcoming and inclusive communities committed to sharing authentic conversation, nurturing meaningful activities, promoting holistic wellness practices, and fostering compassionate action.

People of every walk of life, culture, faith and tradition, participate together in multi-faceted ways, expressing the inspirations, aspirations, wisdom, practices, and blessing of all, realizing that dialogue is enriched by individuals with different backgrounds and experiences - and even contrary viewpoints.

By creatively embodying guiding principles that transcend fixed rules and conventions - and how they apply in our lives - people are better able to graciously and intentionally engage with one another in discovering purpose and belonging, thus establishing profound relationships of trust. We are LGBTQ+ affirming.
