PLANT-BASED NUTRITION AND THE PSYCHOLOGY OF EATING
with Lucy Kay (The Mind and Body Tree) and Rachel Evans (Healthy & Psyched)
This workshop offers a beginners guide to key nutrients in a vegan diet and mind-set hacks to make plant based eating easy and enjoyable.
It can be difficult to navigate all the conflicting information and advice out there about following a plant based diet. It’s often the case that when you switch to a vegan diet, you feel healthier and that’s usually because your new diet is lighter and rich in vegetables which helps the body to detoxify and gives the digestive system the nutrients it needs to rest and repair itself.
However, if not undertaken carefully, following a plant based diet long term can lead to problems. There are some essential nutrients the body needs that are more difficult to obtain from a plant based diet, so it’s important to consider these carefully and plan your diet to optimise your health and wellbeing.
In addition, family/ friends can be less than supportive and decoding restaurant menus can be tricky. Not to mention if you start to get cravings for cheese or bacon!
In this workshop we will examine the nutrients that need careful consideration on a plant based diet and discuss practical ways to be healthy as a vegan. You will also learn how to break your old habits, how to get support from others and how to take control of cravings.
This is a friendly and informal workshop with plenty of opportunity for questions.
Date & Time: 27th February, 6-8pm
