Eat to Thrive is a comprehensive and inspirational 10-week course developed by Betsy Bragg to educate people in a holistic, sensible approach to a living-foods diet and lifestyle. The class will teach you to recognize your mind-body connection and how to cleanse and nourish your body and soul. Be inspired to develop daily routines that nurture your path to personal empowerment. Explore various holistic approaches to healing while learning to set up your living food kitchen. Expand your nutritional knowledge, including the A-B-C’s of sprouting and the optimal benefits of an alkaline and enzyme-rich diet.

More than just a vegetarian meal plan.

Each class will include a lesson about a key topic for health and nutrition, a featured guest speaker with experience in the field, a five-course vegan dinner, and hands-on experience preparing plant-based meals. Our veggie meals and vegan meals are delicious and well liked by children as well as adults. Your family will benefit from our many recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks. 

Plant-based foods in their uncooked state are considered raw and alive. Live plant-based foods contain a wide range of vital life force nutrients. Their nutritional properties are essential to the proper maintenance of human bodily functions. Throughout the course you will gain access to a variety of healthy, delicious plant-based diet recipes and learn how simple, enjoyable and affordable it can be to change your lifestyle.
