Eat to Thrive 

Virtual Online Classes


Fall Classes 

Eat to Thrive is a comprehensive and inspirational 10-week program developed by Betsy Bragg to educate people in a holistic, sensible approach to a living-foods diet and lifestyle. The program 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.

Each evening will include a lesson about a key topic for health and nutrition, a featured guest speaker with experience in the field, a vegetarian dinner, and virtual hands-on experience preparing plant-sourced foods. Throughout the program you will gain access to a variety of healthy, delicious vegan recipes and learn how simple, enjoyable and affordable it can be to change your lifestyle.

During the 10 weeks of this program, you will not only be able to change your life, but you will learn the skills required to ensure a long, healthy life for your family as well. Those interested in sharing their knowledge of health and nutrition with others have the option of receiving a health educator certification through this program. Others who only seek exposure to the material can audit the program for a lower fee. Every person who enrolls will enjoy the benefits of finding a community of people passionate about creating healthy behaviors and supporting others in pursuit of the same goals.
