Plant-based eating made easy

This five module course will introduce you to the basics of whole-food, plant-based eating and equip you with the know-how you need to eat well and live well.

Plant-based eating is all the rage and you can see why - it's great for health, the environment and for animals. Whole-food plant based eating is an even healthier and many people are using it to manage, prevent and even reverse health problems. 

But it can be difficult to start especially if you have never explored this way of eating before or are concerned about whether it is for you. And if you are supporting someone who is following this lifestyle, or encouraging clients or patients to make positive lifestyle changes then it can be challenging to find accessible information to share and follow.

Eat Well Live Well Online provides a fantastic introduction to the world of whole-food plant-based eating. Based on the 'live' course I have been successfully running for the last 5 years, this online course will help you discover fascinating facts and evidence-based information that will reveal just how important the food we it is.

What people say about the course

An important step on my healing journey

Jana, London

I wanted to find a natural way to heal and continue staying healthy. Therefore, transitioning to a whole food plant based diet has been absolutely essential. It has been a gradual process over the last 5 or so years and I still have a little way to go. However, courses like Eat Well Live Well are important steps on that journey. It reaffirmed the crucial food & health connection and it also gave me some invaluable cooking tips and simple yet delicious and healthy recipes! I only wish the course was running for longer!

Happy with health changes

by Sharon Edmunds, Worthing

“I found Karen’s course inspiring. I loved learning so much about how food affects our bodies and just how easy it is to make tasty and exciting food. From doing the course I have lost 1 1⁄2 stone in weight and have reduced my blood sugar and cholesterol levels. It’s also reversed the early signs of diabetic retinopathy (an eye condition) so I am very happy.”

Positive changes dropped my cholesterol

Julie Mc

I went to one of Karen’s Eat Well Live Well courses earlier this year which was such a treat and for me a life-changer. After the first couple of weeks I changed my diet. I have high cholesterol and what I was learning on the course made me realise I was eating the wrong things. After 3 months my cholesterol levels have dropped from 7.1 to 5.6. I will continue to get it even lower and I know that if I need support Karen and the lovely ladies I met on the course are there to answer any questions.”
