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

WEEK 4: July 27 - Dinner food options, batch cooking, how to cook without using oil

WEEK 5: August 3 - Making your plant-based lifestyle work in everyday life


Required reading: The Forks Over Knives PLAN book, by Alona Pulde, MD & Matthew Lederman, MD
