Rooted Dish was founded by Granetta Coleman to provide plant-based nutrition and cooking instruction in Washington, DC.
When people learn what to eat for health and cook these foods, they can live more fully. Our instruction uses the scientifically backed Food for Life programs developed by the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) to guide people to a more healthful way of eating. PCRM is a 25 year old non-profit that strives to understand the causes of disease in order to cure them. If you are not familiar with PCRM, learn more here.
A low-fat, plant-based diet has been proven:
to make weight loss and control easier, and
to decrease the chances of developing chronic diseases such as hypertension, high cholesterol, cancer and diabetes.
Our classes included nutrition lectures, cooking demos,
samples of delicious plant-powered recipes, and a supportive group of other people striving to make healthy changes.
