This demonstration workshop will show you how to increase your plant intake and thus help the planet.

Plant proteins are known to be better for us, and better for the planet, but how do you make them taste better than cardboard?!

Feeling confused about what to eat that’s good for you and your family, and good for the planet?

Join Naturopath Sally Mathrick as she guides you through an introduction to plant based diet.

The Planetary Health Diet, released in Jan 2019 by the EAT Lancet Commission, detailed how 10 billion people can live well on the planet in 2050. It requires us to eat more plants and less meat.

Reducing meat intake is better for human health and helps reduce global warming and preserve biodiversity (ie life on Earth). Our tradition of meat and three vege, means it’s not obvious nor easy to understand what to do.

Make sure you’re not missing any vital nutrients for growth, development and good health.

In this workshop you will obtain know-how about combining, sprouting and activating plant foods, and making them tasty so you can increase them in your diet.

We’ll show you how increasing proteins from plants and funghi foods can satisfy you and keep you healthy and lean.

You will come to understand how to ensure optimal nutrition through eating a plant based diet, make and take home your own bread, and enjoy a tasty dip
