Official Forks Over Knives Community Program
The inspirational, life-changing documentary, Forks Over Knives has propelled many to shake up their lifestyles and adopt a plant-based diet to improve their health. Sometimes that is challenging to do when a support system is not in place. In this Forks Over Knives approved official 6-week 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. Here is more information on this program.
Private Events are now all done at the Center for Plant-based Living. If you'd like private cooking instruction, we can do that in our state-of-the-art gourmet kitchen for up to 6 people. If you have a larger party, we can comfortably accommodate up to 20 people in a demonstration-style cooking class. We can also create a dinner party style atmosphere, set up for your corporate event or meeting, or even hold a baby shower! Contact us and we will put together the event that is suited just for you!

This 8-series program designed by the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) is intended for people with type 2 diabetes, pre-diabetes, a family history or risk factors for developing diabetes and their adult family members.
