About the workshop
You can view a vegan diet either in terms of what it excludes or what it includes. Most people make the choice to embrace a vegan lifestyle on their own and immediately see all that it includes. For others, the choice is sometimes forced upon them, say for medical reasons, and it is hard to look beyond the meat and dairy lifestyle that seems so comforting. But everyone who makes this choice has to begin somewhere, and that is often the biggest obstacle.
Jack’s path to a healthy, plant-based lifestyle was not exactly planned. After years of thinking a healthy lifestyle meant purchasing and preparing organic meats and dairy…with the occasional sweets of course, Jack’s life suddenly changed one afternoon during a ‘very normal’ jog. A few weeks later and a life-changing diagnosis, he was forced to make a change of lifestyle – and a quick one too! Jack embraced a lifestyle that virtually eliminated saturated fats, and that change led Jack on a path toward ‘veganism.’
In this workshop, Jack will share more details of his journey and what he learned along the way. He will speak about the nutritional misconceptions often attributed to a vegan diet, the different levels of going vegan, tips on how to make a successful transition, how to convert favorite recipes, traveling tips and the unexpected side effects of a healthy, plant-based lifestyle.
This workshop is appropriate for everyone…just bring along an open mind, all your questions, and of course, an appetite!
