Essentials of Vegan Nutrition

Event description

Whether you are vegetarian, a new vegan, an experienced vegan, interested in going vegan, or just wanting to brush up on your nutritional knowledge, you will find this workshop highly useful and maybe even a little inspiring! 

There is so much research and attention on plant based eating, but what does it all mean? We know a plant based diet is environmentally beneficial, but how do we do it healthily? Do you know if you are obtaining adequate nutrition from your diet? Do you know which plant foods are the best sources of protein, iron, calcium and all the other nutrients you need? Do you know how to get the right balance of omega 6 and omega 3? If you are unsure, then this workshop is for you!

In this workshop you will learn which nutrients are paramount for optimal health from infancy to adulthood, the recommended daily intake of each of these nutrients for each age group, and where these nutrients are sourced from while following a plant based diet. You will learn about which supplements (if required) are safest to use.

Have you had blood tests done and not sure how to read them? Or your levels come back as normal, but you are still feeling suboptimal? In this workshop you will learn about what blood tests to get done, when to get them done, and how to read the results.

This workshop is for any person, parent, or carer who cook meals and/or are responsible for the health of the loved ones in their life (including themselves). This workshop is not only for those wanting to, or currently following a plant based diet, but for also for those who want to learn more about nutrition for all age groups, regardless of what diet you follow.

Each participant will receive a goodie bag filled with samples and discount vouchers. Bookings are essential. Due to COVID, we are keeping workshop numbers small. Books are essential.

Please note, this event requires a minimum of 6 participants to run. Should there be less than 6 participants, those who have purchased tickets will have their ticket price refunded in full.

We intend on running these workshops at Northcote Natural Therapies. In the event that the government regulates that there cannot be groups indoors, this event will move to an online format (likely via zoom).
