Canyon Lake resident Barbara Inchcliff, nutrition educator and owner of Plant Strong Prescription, is a registered nurse who has spent more than 25 years working in the operating room. She’s seen the decline in her patients’ health year after year. In 2012, Barbara decided to focus her efforts studying the link between diet and disease.
Barbara said after discovering the power a Whole Food Plant Based diet has in preventing and reversing chronic disease, her passion became to educate and help others gain knowledge on this way of life and take control of their health.
“There is no magic pill. Ninety-five percent of diets fail. Calorie counting, portion control, and magic shakes don’t work. Eating large amounts of the right foods is your key to success,” said Barbara.
Barbara teaches Whole Food Plant Based Nutrition classes in Canyon Lake. Her classes focuses on non-processed, non-refined, whole foods that include fruits, vegetables, legumes, whole grains, nuts, and seeds, which all promote health and help prevent disease.
Barbara follows “Eat to Live,” a book by Dr. Joel Fuhrman. Students are provided with a binder that includes a class syllabus, outlining and summarizing the six main chapters of the book. Quiz questions and goals follow each chapter.
“I provide tons of supplemental information and material on many of the nutrition topics as well. Also included are Plant Strong Prescription recipes and links to my cooking demo videos,” says Barbara. “I can teach you all about the link between diet and disease and which foods are needed for optimal weight and health. It is never too late to take control of your health destiny.”
Classes are held one night a week and set as four-week series. The next series begins Aug. 7 in the East Port Park Activities Building. The cost of the series is $60. The first class is free. Registration is taken at the POA office and pool office.
