Kickstart Your Health Class/Series is about embracing an overall healthful diet.  In addition, you will likely lose weight and maintain a healthy weight.  The guiding principle for Kickstart is choosing the right plant-based foods rather than restricting the amount of foods. If you want to lower your cholesterol, have better diabetes control, lower your blood pressure, as well as improve your energy and mood then a plant-based diet may help.

Each class includes a nutrition lecture and informative cooking demonstrations to help participants adopt the suggested changes. 

In addition, participants get to taste delicious, healthful dishes in a supportive group setting.
