The School of Nursing’s Green Wellness Program: Plants-2-Plate has two new cohorts starting this fall. While the cohort beginning in August filled up quickly, the program is still seeking participants for the September cohort. The sessions will take place on Wednesdays from 3:00-4:00 p.m. over a span of six months, from September 21, 2022 through March 8, 2023.
Participants enrolled in the program are challenged to follow a whole food, plant-based nutrition plan, and will learn how to adopt a healthy lifestyle and eating pattern centered around foods that come primarily from plants, like fruits, vegetables, nuts, whole grains and legumes. The program encourages a strong support system through in-person group sessions that will allow participants to build accountability, trade recipes and learn from each other.
In addition to nutrition planning, participants are also coached on ways to reduce stress through meditation, proper sleep, yoga and journaling. The program team members include a registered nurse, nurse practitioner and registered dietitian who are experts in plant-based nutrition and wellness.
