Whole Food Plant Based Lifestyle: Quality Fuel for Quality Lives
Remember the phrase, you are what you eat? While we are certainly more than what we eat, scientific evidence is demonstrating more and more that what we eat affects us. "It's the Food!" Choosing which foods we put on our plates—and which we avoid—gives us an unprecedented power to live longer, healthier lives. Two-thirds of Americans alive today will die of cancer or heart disease, and many of these deaths will be related to diet. My mission is to share insights to help you take control of your life through nutrition. The whole food, plant-based lifestyle features simple guidelines grounded in science that I will be sharing with you. According to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, “Appropriately planned vegetarian/vegan diets are healthful, nutritionally adequate, and may provide health benefits in the prevention and treatment of certain diseases in all phases of life.” Please join Dr. Jackie Busse MD, FAAP, Palo Alto Medical Foundation (Certified in Plant Based Nutrition - Cornell University) and pick up nutrition-science tips, be a part of a progressive Q & A, and meet others on this delicious adventure. This class is free of charge, sponsored by the Santa Cruz VegFest. Dr. Busse's Philosophy of Care: I love taking care of children and their families and am honored to be a part of my patients' lives. I believe that preventive medicine is the cornerstone of pediatric care and I am passionate about two of the most important aspects of preventive care: nutrition and vaccination. Specifically, I strongly endorse a whole-foods, plant-based lifestyle. I believe in a collaborative approach to patient care, working with families in the context of their community to help kids stay healthy and reach their potential.
