Vegan Nutrition – Resilient Cuisine: Herbivore meets Locavore

Changing the World Through the Power of Food

August 26 – 27, 2023

Practical steps for achieving success by taking a close look at food choices and sustainability designed to help those committed to making a healthy lifestyle change that is also healthy for the Earth. Learn easy to create delicious recipes from local, wild and native plants. Improve health, save money and reduce the impact on the environment. Special attention will be given to essential nutrients (including protein) from local, plant-based sources.

The Vegan Resilient Cuisine workshop looks at food choices and sustainability designed to help those committed to making a healthy lifestyle change that is also healthy for the Earth. It’s about listening to our bodies and stepping away from ‘rigid rules’ about diet. Food choices that supported your body a year ago may not serve me now. It is all about playful experimentation and asking the questions: ‘Is this really the most ecstatically fulfilling choice for my body?’ ‘Would I really love to do this? Will I really enjoy the vibe which is left in its wake?’ ‘Body, what would you like to enjoy today?’

Not exclusive to herbivores. Anyone who wants to incorporate more local, plant-based foods into their dietary choices is welcome.
