Every adult I speak to is on some kind of medication. High cholesterol, insulin for Type 2 diabetes management, high blood pressure, the list goes on. Its seriously scary. And the craziest part? It is mostly preventable. The Food for Life (FFL) cooking classes physically show people that it doesn’t have to be this way! Just following a whole food, low fat, plant based diet can drastically reduce your risk of heart disease, cancer and allow you to lose weight. It has also tons of other benefits such as increased energy and clearer skin. Of course starting a new lifestyle can be super daunting. You’re probably thinking, ‘Where do I even start?!’ Our amazing FFL instructor, Farrah, will guide participants by showing you the science, providing easy recipes, hands on cooking, and most importantly an inclusive, supportive community of people with the same goal: getting healthy again.

I met Farrah during the 2016 summer Free Healthy cooking classes and loved the project from the begining so I started as volunteer and never looked back. I like to see we are making difference in the community helping people to adopt a nutritious diet and have a healthy lifestyle.

We show people how to take complex scientific nutrition information and translate it into simple, delicious and affordable meals. We all know that we need to eat more veggies and fruits, but most of us don’t know how to prepare them in an interesting and healthful way, and this is what we are teaching people effortlessly to cut calorie content from fats; all easy to make, saving time and money.
A message from Dr. Neal Barnard
The Food for Life programme is a way to get practical tools into people’s hands. Information that they can use and an understanding of how you put it to work. That’s a wonderful, wonderful gift for so many people. And I am really delighted that there are folks in the UK who are going to be doing this and bringing it forward. I think it is fantastic. And for doctors, advocates, teachers who want to see this movement go forward the Food for Life people are your best right arm.Neal Barnard, M.D., F.A.C.C., is an adjunct associate professor of medicine at the George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences, president and founder of the nonprofit Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, and founder of Barnard Medical Center, a nonprofit primary care medical center in Washington, D.C.
