Whole Food Plant-Based Diet, healthy plant-based diet, and healthy vegan diet are all terms for one same "lifestyle" or diet which is centered around consuming whole plant-based foods such as whole grains, fruits, vegetables, legumes, nuts, and green leafy vegetables, and excludes meat, eggs, and dairy.
No protein? On the contrary!
All plant proteins contain all essential amino acids. Apples, oranges, bananas, avocados, lentils, almonds, you name it!
Boring? On the contrary!
Soups, stews, salads, sandwiches, burgers, burritos, pasta, desserts, thousands of combinations and flavors!
Expensive? On the contrary!
A Whole Food Plant-Based Diet not only costs less than other diets, it costs several times less than some diets.
Hi, my name is Matija,
but you can call me Matty!
As the instructor of this online course, I relish the opportunity to interact with you and share ideas and inspiration! If you have any questions about the course, please contact me at [email protected] and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
Matija Matty Biljeskovic ate meat, eggs, and dairy products for almost 30 years of his life during which he was continually active in sports including playing college soccer for a scholarship in USA. He thought he was eating healthy and that it couldn't get any better than that. Then, in 2013, he received information about the advantages of a plant-based diet, decided to put that information to the test through his own experience, and switched to a plant-based diet.
Within less than a month after switching, he gained experiential insight into the superiority of a plant-based diet in terms of endurance, recovery, and energy. Amazed and shocked at the same time, he spent thousands of hours studying science on plant-based nutrition and the human body and then started sharing his knowledge with others. He has delivered more than 40 public lectures on plant-based nutrition.
Holds a Plant-Based Nutrition Certificate (Cornell University, T. Colin Campbell CNS), a Certificate in Plant-Based Cooking (Rouxbe FOK), and more than six years of practical experience in plant-based nutrition.
This course is for individuals who want to go plant-based
The course covers everything that I wish I knew when I made the switch over to eating a plant-based diet. Through more than 40 video lessons, I share every essential aspect you need to know for going plant-based. From how different food components work and what to eat for breakfast, lunch, and dinner to being aware of other important factors that play a significant role in our overall health and much more.
