Food For Life: Food for Breast Cancer Prevention & Survival 5-Class Series 

Oct. 11, 18, 25, Nov. 8 & 15
11:30am - 1:00pm ET

Half a century ago, the United States declared a “war on cancer,” yet current statistics predict that during our lifetime, one in eight women will develop breast cancer. Research has shown that more than one-third of all cancer deaths in the United States are due to poor diet, yet most are unaware of the connection. Faced with these startling statistics, the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine developed the Food for Life: Let’s Beat Breast Cancer curriculum based on our groundbreaking Cancer Project curriculum.

Food for Life: African American Culinary Heritage 6-Class Virtual Series
September 11, 13, 14, 18, 20, 21
1pm - 2:30pm

In this course, we will honor the ancestral ties of West African foodways that were brought to the United States through the Middle Passage and the culinary traditions, such as soul food, developed by African Americans throughout their history in the United States. This invaluable information will also help participants who are seeking to prevent or overcome high blood pressure, heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and other health conditions that disproportionately affect African Americans. In addition, each week I will be demonstrating several simple whole food plant-based dishes that you can cook along with me and easily make yourself.

This zoom class aims to empower attendees with the knowledge and skills needed to prepare simple, nutritious meals that fuel optimal fitness and recovery. For centuries, athletes have been following plant-based diets to achieve a competitive advantage. Recently, plant-based diets are gaining popularity in a variety of sports. Perhaps that’s because vegan athletes are leading in endurance sports, weightlifting, and even Formula One racing. However, you don’t have to be a professional athlete to benefit
from a plant-based diet. A low-fat vegan diet comprising whole grains, legumes, fruits, and vegetables provides the ideal fuel for any physical activity.
