Free Plant-Based Cooking Class: Power Foods for the Brain

On Monday, August 19, 2024, join Deb Czech for a free, hands-on cooking class featuring plant-based foods that promote brain health, hosted by the Scotia Branch of the Schenectady (NY) Public Library. Medical research and studies indicate that eating low-fat, plant-based meals can be very effective in boosting brain health.

In this class you will:

  • Watch a short video with medical experts discussing plant-based nutrition and its impact on brain health
  • Discover how to get started easily with foods you already know
  • Participate in a hands-on cooking demonstration to build knowledge and skills
  • Sample three low-fat, plant-based recipes you can enjoy at home
  • Receive useful resources related to plant-based eating and its benefits for your brain

The food we eat has a significant impact on our health, other living creatures, and our planet. Plant-based meals benefit your overall health because they contain no dietary cholesterol, very little saturated fat, and abundant fiber. (And, yes, you can get plenty of protein, too!) In addition to supporting brain health, this way of eating has been proven to prevent, manage, and in some cases reverse chronic diseases such as heart disease, hypertension, some forms of cancer, type 2 diabetes, some autoimmune diseases, obesity, and other medical conditions.

REGISTER HERE beginning August 5th via the Schenectady Public Library’s website (choose the Scotia Branch) for this free cooking class on August 19, 2024, from 12:00 to 1:30 pm Eastern Daylight Time.
