Eating for Improved Well-Being
Sep 01, 2019 02:42PM
Join Nurse and Wellness Educator Terri Mann beginning at 6 p.m. on September 9 at Tidal Creek Co-op, in Wilmington, for a weekly forum. Plant-based eating will be the main focus and a variety of topics will be covered under this theme.
Mann 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 can reduce some cancer risk. Additional benefits include improving your digestion (gut health), reducing chronic disease risk, naturally boosting energy, and slowing or preventing of 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.”
Free admission. Location: 5329 Oleander Dr. For more information or to attend, contact Mann at 910-470-2745 or Tidal Creek Co-op at 910-799-2667.
