STLVegGirl's Forks Over Knives Community Program
The inspirational, life-changing documentary, Forks Over Knives has propelled many to transition to a plant-based diet to gain better health. Sometimes that is challenging to do when a support system is not in place. In this Forks Over Knives approved, official 5-week pilot program we will explore the aspects of a whole food, plant-based diet, how to talk with friends and family, how to re-structure your kitchen, how to go out and eat and remain social without adding stress to you and those around you, and so much more.
This is a very brief summary of our program, there will be much more covered:
WEEK 1: July 6 - Forks Over Knives Movie showing and program overview
WEEK 2: July 13 - Breakfast food options, label reading, talking protein, restocking your kitchen & menu planning
WEEK 3: July 20 - Lunch food options, journaling, talking calcium and dairy, food addiction and willpower
