Eating for Improved Well-Being: Plant-Based Nutrition Weekly Forum in Wilmington
Join Nurse and Wellness Educator Terri Mann at 6 p.m. every Monday at Tidal Creek Co-op, in Wilmington, for a weekly forum. Plant-based eating is the main focus while a variety of topics will be covered under this theme.
Mann, who also earned a Plant-Based Nutrition Certification from T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies, explains, “For the majority of my professional life as a nurse, I have seen first-hand and learned about the negative effects diets and nutrition can cause with the body and chronic ailments. As such, my goal is to educate and advise as many as I can about the benefits and options that plant-based diets afford us.”
Health benefits of eating a plant-based diet include better overall nutrition, weight loss, healthier heart, lower diabetes risk, and reductions in some cancer risks. Additional benefits include improving digestion (gut health), reducing chronic disease risk, naturally boosting energy and slowing or preventing cognitive decline, all while supporting the environment and our planet. Mann adds, “Bring your favorite recipe share with you, any questions you have and get ready to start eating for your well-being.”
