Noel Plutto is not your typical Food For Life instructor. With her undergraduate degree in chemical engineering, and spending most of her career in the chemical industry, she started her journey to a vegan lifestyle in an unusual way. “I read the book Skinny Bitch and stopped eating meat the next day.” Then her father suffered a heart attack. “My dad was active, a healthy weight, cholesterol under 150, and he still had a heart attack. I knew the missing link was diet.” Noel loves to teach, and her passion for health is contagious when you join her at her plant-based cooking classes, which focus on optimal health, cancer prevention, diabetes, and weight loss.
She is currently hosting Food for Life classes throughout the Woodlands, Texas, area.
Why did you become a Food for Life instructor?
“I can’t SURVIVE without meat!” Living in Texas, I hear this all the time. I love to share a fun and filling new world full of things like chickpea ‘chkn’ salad or that crazy stuff called keenwah???? (quinoa of course).
So you’re ready to get Healthy? There are several course series to choose from to meet your needs. During each class I’ll teach you valuable information on how certain foods and nutrients work to promote health. I’ll also demonstrate how to cook simple and nutritious recipes (3 per class)… then we all sample!
Series vary between 4-8 weeks long. We meet once a week for 2 hours.
What is Food For Life?
The Food for Life program is an innovative approach to a medical challenge. It aims first to prevent disease. The classes work to translate complex scientific nutrition information into simple and easy meals. Each Food for Life nutrition and cooking class features a nutrition lecture and live cooking demonstration all within a supportive group setting.
