Eat a Whole Food Plant Based Diet & Excercise to be Healthy & Happy

Why Whole Food Plant-Based?


It is important to me to share my passion for the whole food plant-based lifestyle and diet. This really isn't a diet - I don't count calories or measure everything I eat. I do make sure that I eat more food that is nutrient dense. That is, it contains more nutrients than calories. For instance, nuts and seeds are more calorie dense than vegetables, whole grains, beans, lentils and fruits. Doesn't mean I don't eat any of those just not a lot of them.

My goal is to make it easier for you to change from eating mostly the SAD (Standard American Diet) to eating less and/or eventually no animal products.  One way I share this information is by my...

THIS and MORE when you take my Food For Life classes...


"I highly recommend Barbara Mathison's PCRM cooking classes as I have attended the series three times. I just kept coming back for MORE...MORE whole food plant-based nutrition information, MORE cooking demonstrations for easy, delicious recipes, MORE educational videos on food based prevention of disease, and MORE tips for local shopping, how to store food, and how to save money on your grocery bills. Barbara is full of knowledge, but if she doesn't know the answer to your questions she will find out and get back to you...you can count on her 'follow through'. You will have the support of PCRM and Barbara to help you in any way meet your health goals. And the classes are FUN. I do this for myself, everyone should do this for themselves too!."  KP 
P.S. "Duane was a fantastic assistant!!!

"Barbara was fantastic. The atmosphere was so great -- information on so many questions, her knowledge, recipes, presentation, kindness, overall information seemed perfect.  10 in a 5-star rating!  Duane's contribution to the classes was so appreciated. He was so kind and such a great support" BA

"This class is filled with tips and suggestions to rejuvenate my interest in cooking. I learned so much about improving my families diet. My handouts are valuable to refresh my memory.  The ambiance for classes was remarkable; instructor's professional kitchen helped students relax and feel free to ask / answer questions.  It was the best! Great information!" JH

"At first I could not imagine giving up cheese, yogurt, and eggs. As I tried more recipes I found myself not missing these foods and not feeling the constant hunger. Fewer trips to the pantry have netted me a weight lose of 13 pounds and taken care of digestion and constipation problems." DB

"Absolutely loved the class. Barbara is a wonderful teacher. She is very enthusiastic about plant-based foods. I learned a lot and feel so much better. Thank you. Duane was wonderful as well." LK
