How to do it, and what you need to know


10.00am - 4.00pm at Derwenthorpe, York

This full day class with lunch is an investment that will support your health and wellness into old age. You will leave with a strong foundation of knowledge for building a plant-based diet for yourself and your family, based on science-supported information and the experience of a fully plant-based lunch which aligns with the principles taught in the class. There is more here about our food.

The class and the lunch are provided by Annette & Graham Henry who as well as living a plant-based lifestyle, are also currently being coached by two of America’s leading plant-based educators.

About The Class

The class takes place at our Derwenthorpe base and starts at 10.00am. We recommend bringing a note book and pen. Lunch will be from around noon - 1.30 which may also allow a little time for a walk around our sustainable development. The class will end at 4.00pm.

You will learn:

  • How to achieve appropriate nutrient levels from this type of diet

  • How to make sensible and informed decisions when shopping for food

  • How to optimise calories and weight by eating this way

  • How to respond to the debunkers and sceptics and how to ease the concerns of friends and family who don’t understand how a plant-based diet can provide adequate nutrition

Topics to be covered include:

  • The protein question - where do you get it if you’re not eating meat?

  • The issue of fat in the diet; how much? What types? What foods are good sources?

  • Micronutrients, especially the more controversial ones such as calcium and vitamin B12

  • Staying healthy into old age: what we can learn from populations with a high percentage of healthy centenarians
