Plant Based Cuisine from Theory to Practice
This event focuses on the use of natural whole foods, with minimum processing, in order to take maximum nutritional benefit from the abundance of foods Mother Earth provides us with - the basis of a plant-based diet. Large population studies on plant-based diets, such as the Mediterranean diet, show that it significantly reduces the risk of heart diseases, metabolic syndrome, diabetes, obesity, certain cancers (specifically colon, breast and prostate cancer) and in older adults, risk of frailty, along with better mental and physical function (longevity). Although it may not be the only solution, a plant-base diet can also translate into more sustainable practices for our dear Mother Earth, minimizing our impact on Her surface.
A plant-based diet can offer all the necessary proteins, carbs, fats, vitamins and minerals for optimal health. However, to guarantee that we need to have some basic knowledge on human nutrition and how we can cater to all our nutritional needs within a plant-based diet. If you want to make the transition into a plant-based diet, discover new tasty veggie recipes and dive deeper into the principles of nutrition for a healthier diet, then this event is for you.
The beautiful landscape of our land, and the complete immersion in nature, sets the tone for this event lead by our resident Italian Chef Davide Formicola. If you want to learn more about him and his life path, make sure to read his bio here.
