Learn the science behind nutrition and fitness and learn how to prepare simple, nutritious meals that fuel optimum fitness and recovery.
What You’ll Learn:
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. It also demonstrates qualities for enhanced recovery over high-fat and animal-based diets. The Food for Life: Food for Fitness class will empower you with the knowledge and skills needed to prepare simple, nutritious meals that fuel optimal fitness and recovery.
This one-hour class features a nutrition video, a discussion, and a cooking demonstration. It is designed to be a stand-alone class and provides an excellent overview to plant-based foods for optimal fitness.
