Starch Solution: Intro to Plant-Based Wellness, Nutrition and Cooking Workshop | Port Washington | Saturday, 07. December 2019

It's the Food.
If you have ever read any of the excellent books by Dr. John McDougall, you would understand that our food choices contribute to, and in many cases are the cause of, most of our chronic health conditions (such as heart and kidney disease, Diabetes, Cancer, Digestive Health conditions such as GERD and IBS, Arthritis and joint pain, Skin conditions, Autoimmune conditions and more). WIth over 2/3 of the US overweight or obese and many chronic health issues increasing and at younger ages, the need for lifestyle change has never been greater.
This 3 hour class, led by certified Starch Solution instructor Laurie Courage with selected videos from Dr. McDougall, is a great introduction to a plant-based lifestyle. We will cover the traditional diet of people (debunking some myths along the way), how and what makes up a healthful starch-based diet and put this lifestyle into practice with a sure-start plan. In addition, we will have a cooking demo with 5 recipes so you can see how simple and delicious it can be to eat healthy starches and lose weight, lessen the need for surgery and/or medications and restore your energy and health. You will get to sample different dishes, take home recipes and handouts, all in a supportive group setting. This class is limited to 8 participants. Pre-registration is required. Early Bird and Buddy Discounts are available.
What is the exact address for the class?
The class will be held in Port Washington NY. Exact location will be sent to confirmed participants via email a few days prior to class.
How can I contact the organizer with any questions?
Please send an email through the contact form on this page. I will try to respond quickly. You can also call Laurie Courage at 516-365-3551.
What's the refund policy? Is my registration fee or ticket transferrable?
To manage food and materials purchases, we can only provide refunds up to seven (7) days prior to the beginning of the class. After that, there are no refunds. Thanks for your understanding. However, if you really can't make the class (we will miss you) you can transfer the registration to a friend you really like online up to 24 hours in advance.
Although this educational opportunity is provided by Certified Starch Solution Instructor Laurie Courage, Starch Solution: Intro to Plant-Based Wellness contains materials from Dr. John McDougall, his books and his website, the class and its content that are being presented entirely independent of the McDougall Proogram. The use of "McDougall" materials in any form is not an endorsement of the classes being presented, nor should you expect the same weight loss and medical benefits experienced during the 10-day live in McDougall Program http://www.drmcdougall.com.
