Virtual Thriver: Cleaning out your Pantry: Out with the Processed!!

October 28 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


Is it time to clean out that pantry? Join Thrive as we guide you towards a healthier, less processed pantry!

At Thrive we recommend a Whole Foods, Plant-Based diet for optimal health and disease prevention and reversal but many individuals are still not clear how to implement it. The term “whole foods” is defined as foods in their most natural state. Abundant fruits and vegetables, whole grains, legumes and nuts, and reduced amounts of meats, poultry, seafood, and minimally processed dairy products.

Unfortunately, given our busy lives, many of us feel we do not have time to adopt the prepping and cooking that this diet requires. By default, we instead rely on processed and convenience foods dominating our grocery stores and restaurants. In return, we pay with our health and our waistlines. In fact, a 2019 report in Cell Metabolism found that people who switch to “real foods” lost 2 lbs in the first week while those who ate processed foods tended to consume 500 more calories and gained 2 lbs over the same time span. A whole foods diet can also aid in digestion and prevent diabetes, heart disease, stroke, and Altzheimers disease. All sounds great but where do you start?

Join the physicians and staff of Thrive for a series of Virtual Classes as we help to break down the diet into easily achievable steps that can that even the reluctant can adopt. All classes will be recorded and visible at a later time. Register today!!!
