Food for Life TV
Want to learn how to improve your health from the comfort of your own home? Then tune into Food for Life TV, PCRM’s interactive webcasts for anyone who wants a healthy diet.
This online video support group, based on PCRM’s popular diabetes classes, offers free information on diet and disease, including diabetes, cancer, and heart disease, as well as cooking demonstrations and group support for anyone looking to lose weight, lower cholesterol, or simply improve his or her health.
Each 30-minute show focuses on a different topic and usually includes a lecture by PCRM president Neal Barnard, M.D., as well as a cooking demonstration by chefs and nutritionists. Class discussions range from the science behind type 2 diabetes to the dollars and cents of healthy eating to how foods can help fight headaches and migraines.
Susan Levin, M.S., R.D., Jill Eckart, C.H.H.C., and other PCRM nutritionists and health counselors answer nutrition questions from the online audience, share success stories from participants who have adopted a healthy vegan diet, and demonstrate how to make easy and healthful recipes such as Mediterranean Salad with Balsamic Syrup Vinaigrette and Chocolate Cherry Nirvana Smoothie. Classes have featured guest lecturers and chefs, including chef Robyn Webb and nutrition expert and author Brenda Davis, R.D.
The classes air Thursdays at 8 p.m. EST and again on Saturdays at 1 p.m. To watch previous classes or to receive e-mail updates and a weekly reminder, please visit FoodForLifeTV.org.
