What the course is about
On this 4 week course you will learn:
- the essentials of plant-based nutrition (macro- & micro-nutrients) and why plant foods are such a vital part of a healthy diet & lifestyle;
-. tasty ways to increase fibre intake;
- ways to replicate animal-based foods (taste & texture) but using only plant-based ingredients;
- several healthy plant-based recipes.
You’ll be asked to carry out cookery tasks at your own home each week between course sessions.
Previous experience, knowledge or qualifications
You simply need a keen interest to learn about healthy plant-based eating, and try your best to carry out the cookery tasks set during each session of the course
To get the most from this course, participants should carry out the cookery assignments, in which case they would need access to a standard simple home kitchen, with the standard equipment, and would also need to purchase ingredients if they don’t have them already.
