Nutrition in Medicine Jumpstart

Jumpstart your health this summer in the easiest way possible - with delicious food.

Enjoy two weeks of prepared meals from our partner Kitchen Verde while learning the nuts and bolts of a whole food, plant-based diet during three consecutive Saturday education sessions.
Examples of meals made by Kitchen Verde include:
Sloppy Lentil Joe with a side of Roasted Rainbow Veggies
Butternut Squash and Veggie Lasagna
Veggie Mac and Cheese with Broccoli
(meals listed are examples only; actual menu will vary)
The Jumpstart is a great way to dive into a plant-based diet or improve your current diet with only a modest investment of time and resources.

Research shows that following a healthy, plant-based diet can improve cholesterol, blood pressure, weight, and blood sugar levels in as little as two weeks.
