Plant-Based Power Hour with Chef Stephanie Michalak White, EdD

two women prepping food for a health mealLearn how to meal prep a healthy, plant-based lunch you can eat throughout the week! We will set you up for success with basic knife skills and knife safety, how to choose the right ingredients for a balanced and filling lunch, and how to properly put together your meal and package it for optimal freshness.

A healthy, plant-based eating pattern aims to maximize consumption of nutrient-dense plant foods while minimizing processed foods, oils, and animal foods (including dairy products and eggs). It encourages lots of vegetables (cooked or raw), fruits, beans, peas, lentils, soybeans, seeds, and nuts (in smaller amounts) and is generally low-fat.

Benefits of plant-based eating include:

  • Vegetarian eating patterns are associated with lower systolic blood pressure and lower diastolic blood pressure
  • Plant-based eating patterns may offer an advantage over those that are not plant-based with respect to prevention and management of diabetes
  • Vegetarian eating patterns are nutrient-dense and can be recommended for weight management without compromising diet quality
