Some of the Recipes We Make in Food for Life Classes





 




Eating plant-based, whole foods means fueling your body from the following food groups.


The whole grains group - This group includes brown rice, millet, oats, barley, corn, and all products made from whole grains including bread, cereals, pastas, and more. Whole grains are filling but have very little fat. In countries where whole grains are staples, such as rural Asia, diabetes, heart disease, and certain cancers, are much less common than in the States and Europe.

 

The legume group - This group includes beans, peas, and lentils. They are hearty, high protein foods that are rich in calcium, iron, cholesterol-lowering soluble fiber, and even traces of omega 3 fatty acids.

The vegetable group - These foods are loaded with vitamins and minerals, are very low in fat, and like all plant foods, have no cholesterol at all.

The fruit group - These are vitamin rich and have no cholesterol. They do have natural sugar but are low on the glycemic index, except for watermelon and pineapple.

Recommended foods do NOT include meat, dairy products, eggs, added oils, or most processed foods.
