Vegetarian & Vegan Nutrition Course

This course provides a very comprehensive overview of the vegetarian and vegan lifestyle and why people choose to eliminate meat from their diet.

Owing to the rise in plant–based living, as well as the flexitarian (the ‘occasional’ vegetarian), many people are beginning to recognize the health benefits of consuming a predominately plant or solely plant-based diet, reducing their risk of several chronic health conditions, including heart disease, diabetes and some cancers.

This course on vegetarian and vegan nutrition is aimed at therapists qualified in nutrition (from the school or elsewhere) to offer a sound introduction to healthy balanced eating and evidence based, up-to-date information on the many health benefits of a plant based diet.

Advice on guiding clients towards a new way of life, including the implications of avoiding meat and meat products and finding healthy protein and micronutrient substitutions (including iron, calcium, vitamin B12, zinc and iodine) is given. Valuable and practical guidance on making the transition is provided, including a step-by-step implementation plan, a detailed outline of ‘at risk’ nutrients, food swaps and ways to balance meals.

This course also looks at vegetarianism and veganism in pregnancy and breastfeeding, raising vegetarian/vegan children, food allergies and intolerance’s.

Dairy free and gluten free plant based diets are outlined, and healthy eating with health conditions including Irritable Bowel Syndrome, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and osteoporosis.

With a lesson dedicated to breakfast, lunch and dinner recipes, this course concludes with a detailed outline on planning the nutrition consultation, incorporating the nutrition questionnaire, goal setting, criteria for referral and recognizing eating disorders.

This course can also be used as ‘Self Help’ guide if you wish to learn about changing to a Vegetarian or Vegan lifestyle!
