“Plant-Based-Diets” with Nick Rose

A diet centered around plant foods such as fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, grains, and beans is considered one of the most health promoting diets due to the rich range of nutrients it offers.  “Plant-based” does not mean a completely vegetarian diet because certain nutrients are better obtained from animal foods.

Nick Rose, M.S., leads weekly Walk, Talk and Taste classes for PCC Natural Markets, where he reveals the seasonal, sustainable and delicious food choices found at PCC. Before coming to PCC, Nick taught nutrition courses at Bastyr University and his alma mater, Virginia Tech, He enjoys helping others make conscious food choices for improved personal and planetary health.
