Most chronic illnesses are dubbed food-illnesses as they can be brought on by diet choices. What a time to learn! As a certified Food-for-Life instructor who studied under Dr. Neal Barnard of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, these classes have been carefully chosen from the PCRM library to help you better understand the the power you have over your health. Change begins now. Join us in this virtual 4-series program where in each class, you will watch a video from Dr. Barnard, watch a live cooking lesson with 2-3 recipes demonstrated and receive the recipes and supplemental official PCRM educational and support materials.
