Free nutrition lecture: Transitioning to a plant-based diet

Nancy Teeter, Registered Dietitian Nutritionist

If you are interested in making your diet more plant-forward, you should plan to attend my free lecture scheduled for March 6 at 1:00 p.m. in the DesertView Mariposa Room. During the session, you will learn about the health benefits of plant-based diets. Studies show that adherence to a strict vegan lifestyle is not required in order to reap the benefits of a plant-based diet. I will provide specific steps you can take to transition from a diet focused on animal protein to one where most of the protein comes from plants.

I am a registered dietitian accredited by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and I have logged over 35 years of experience in food and nutrition. My goal is to help SaddleBrooke residents increase their odds of living a long, healthy and independent life. Misinformation and conflicting facts are published every day, thus, it can be difficult for the average person to know what to eat for good health. I see my role as helping separate fact from fiction in the area of food and nutrition.

As an integrative dietitian, I want people to know that food habits are key to overall good health, but I also know that other lifestyle factors play a role. Sleep, physical activity, stress, functional foods and supplements are all part of the picture when it comes to a long and healthy life.
