Briarpatch Co-op Cooking Classes: Plant-Based Meal Planning Series: Part 1 Plant Based-Based Nutrition with Shauna Schultz, RD

Plant-based eating patterns (aka vegan) are gaining momentum, with health, ethics, and sustainability as reasons for the switch. This is a trend anyone can implement in some form and reap the benefits. It is, however, a new way of eating for many people, and sorting through the myriad of information out there can be overwhelming. This four-class series will demystify plant-based diets and help you design easy-to-make, nutritious, foundation plant-based meals. Each class comes with handouts on meal planning and nutrition.

In this class we will focus on vegan nutrition and how to meet our needs for nutrients like protein, calcium, vitamin B12, iron, and omega-3s. We will prepare and sample meals for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, including Quinoa Apple-Coconut Cereal, Spicy Tempeh Sandwich Filling, Lemon Herb Chickpea Soup with Kale and Farro, and a Creamy Peanut Butter Shake.
