PCRM Employee Wellness

A plant-based diet can help prevent diabetes, cardiovascular disease, cancer, and other chronic diseases.

According to the American Dietetic Association, “Appropriately planned vegetarian diets, including total vegetarian or vegan diets, are healthful, nutritionally adequate, and may provide health benefits in the prevention and treatment of certain diseases.” 

PCRM’s Employee Wellness Program provides:

  • Plant-based nutrition education and cooking classes that include a cooking demonstration, samples of delicious dishes, and a supportive group discussion
  • Support for the company’s management on incorporating affordable healthful choices in the food services
  • Resources on assessing the biometrics of the program participants
  • Program marketing support

Staff members who participate in the nutrition education classes discover the world of health through general topics ranging from digestion to blood pressure.

For some, it’s the first time the idea of not restricting amounts of foods but rather choosing the right foods has been the guiding principle for losing weight and staying healthy. The revelation is bolstered with clinical benefits such as lower cholesterol, better diabetes control, and lower blood pressure, as well as improvements in energy and mood.

Results are likely to be immediate and impressive!
