Sage Plant-Powered Health Now Offering Plant-Based Tours to Italy

Tracie Hines, founder of Sage Plant-Powered Health, is leading two Inspired in Italy tours from September 21 to 28 (ladies only) and October 4 to 11 (couples/singles). These plantbased tours to the Piedmont region of Italy include nutrition and cooking classes in a historic farmhouse kitchen, tours of world-renowned vineyards and wineries, wine tastings, visits to medieval castles and historic churches, and more.

Recently declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its deep-rooted culture of wine and the extraordinary vineyard landscape, this region produces the world’s most highly valued wines. “Many people think eating a plant-based diet is extreme, but it really isn’t. It’s just a matter of changing your perspective. When you look at the healthiest people on the planet—those living in the so-called ‘Blue Zones’—that is exactly what they eat and they live active and vibrant lives well into their 90s and even 100s,” says Hines.

Hines has been teaching plant-based nutrition and cooking classes in the Boston area since 2015. She maintains a plant-based diet is the only diet proven to reverse and/or significantly reduce the risk for a variety of cancers, cardiovascular disease, Type 2 diabetes, autoimmune diseases and more. Tour members will learn about the benefits of this way of eating and how to prepare delicious plantbased meals.
