Certificate in Plant Based Nutrition

Today, I start the first of three courses at eCornell: TCC501 Nutrition Fundamentals with the goal of completing a certificate in plant based nutrition.

They are all online courses, and I hope to complete one per month for the next three months. While they have no direct relation to my job or career, I hope they will make me more informed.

Nutrition Fundamentals focuses on the following topics:

  • State of Health
  • Protein, A Revered Nutrient
  • The China Project
  • Nutrient Fundamentals I
  • Nutrient Fundamentals II
  • Fat, A Less Revered Nutrient

I’m excited to start. I’ll report back later with my thoughts on the course and eventually the certificate.

Vegan food at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport (ORD)

Cibo Express at ORD

My wife and I recently found ourselves with a few hours to kill and a fierce appetite while waiting to catch a flight at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport (ORD). We spent some time wandering around and came up with two options for tasty food. There may be more, but we quit looking after finding these two.

JezRipe Gelato

I have eaten a lot of frozen treats in my time, and quite a few of them vegan. I was surprised and excited when I found JezRipe Gelato on a recent trip to Malaysia. It is made locally in Malaysia from fresh fruits and other ingredients sourced from Italy. It is delicious. They have many flavors including: durian, mango, strawberry, passion fruit, coconut, lychee, peach, lemon, dragon fruit, banana, orange, kiwi, pineapple, papaya, jack fruit, watermelon, chocolate, and vanilla.
