Plant-Based Recipe Swap

This month's theme will be Intuitive Eating with Hannah Tripp, RDN and Kristy Bates, RDN.

We are all born with the ability to eat intuitively. Through years of media influence, diet culture and being told to “finish our plates”, we stop listening and trusting our bodies. Many of us are stuck in an endless attempt for weight loss. Intuitive Eating gives you the skills to connect with your body, learn how to give your body what it needs and rediscover the pleasure of eating. By using its ten principles, Intuitive Eating can help you listen to your hunger and fullness levels, build a tool kit to deal with emotions without using food and using exercise and nutrition to improve our mind and body. Break the endless dieting cycle by learning to trust your body again.

Bring a favorite whole food, plant-based (WFPB) recipe to share, or just come to learn some new recipes. Come try something tasty and new and join a community of healthy eaters!

What is plant-based?
Plant-based, or whole food, plant-based (WFPB), is based on nutrient rich foods from plant sources, minimally processed, without added oils or chemical additives. It includes vegetables, fruits, legumes, whole grains, some nuts and seeds.

Why plant-based?
Evidence supports it leads to: healthier weight, lower cholesterol, blood pressure, and blood sugar, prevention or reversal of heart disease, reduced risk of diabetes and cancer, reduced symptoms of arthritis and autoimmune diseases, good for the environment and animal welfare.
