Our Mission

Plant-Based Nutrition Movement (PBNM.org) aims to organize a combined effort of healthcare providers and community members to promote lifestyle changes to improve the health of America fighting the current epidemic of chronic disease with whole food-plant based nutrition.

Letter From the CEO

PBNM is one year old!

We are proud to celebrate one year of whole food plant-based (WFPB) service to the community. On behalf of our Board of Directors, I want to thank everyone that has supported PBNM in its infancy.

Here is what we have been up to this past year:

We held our very first event in August 2018, a potluck picnic at Busse Woods, Elk Grove Village. We had about 100 participants who were thrilled to find so many other people who were excited about the plant-based way of eating.

October and November 2018 were busy months! In October, Dr. Steven Lome spoke at the Northern Illinois Food Bank in Geneva as part of the “Kane Health Counts” program. The presentation focused on chronic disease prevention, management, and reversal using plant-based nutrition. Also in October, 15 members made a positive public demonstration to thank Rush Copley Medical Center in Aurora for adding plant-based options to its hospital patient menus.  (read more…)

COOKING CLASSES ARE GETTING STARTED NOW!

Classes are just beginning. As we’re learning about all they “whys” of eating a whole food plant based dietary pattern, PBNM is here to help you with the “hows!”th.

PBNM is pleased to offer these cooking classes to all who are interested in learning about, and how to embrace, a whole food plant based dietary pattern. Classes are just forming (some have already begun) and many of our Cooking Coaches have been independently helping others learn how to make delicious, satisfying meals while avoiding the use of any animal products, highly processed foods, or added oils (yes, cooking oil-free is not just possible, it’s easy, delicious, and avoids the health-damaging impact of added oils.)

Classes are just getting started, so check to see if there is one currently scheduled near you

Upcoming Classes

Many of our instructors are just getting started and may not yet have something on the calendar. Let us know if you’re looking for a class, and we’ll let the instructors know of your interest.

UN climate change report calls for change to human diet … to eat less meat

While we are on a mission to help educate and inspire people to move toward a predominantly, if not completely, whole food plant based dietary pattern for health reasons, there is no question that our individual dietary choices have a profound impact on more than our own health, both current and long term. With the latest report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, it’s become abundantly clear that a dietary pattern that focuses on meat consumption, with the accompanying massive deforestation required to produce grains fed to cattle, is simply not sustainable, and the IPCC has concluded that making whole food plant-based choices offers us our best hope to slowing the climate crisis. This article in Nature offers great insights for those interested in learning more.
