January 10, 2019 Plant Powered Manhattan and Marlene Meyerson JCC Manhattan are gauging interest to offer a 21-day community-based wellness project, supporting community members in diving into a healthy plant-based lifestyle, learning new skills and habits, and demonstrating real health impact. Tentative program plans include:
Before and after biometric testing
Plant-based nutrition education
Clear dietary instructions with pantry planning tips and recipes
Optional WFPB prepared meals
Optional cooking classes in the JCC culinary center
Medical oversight by a licensed physician board-certified in lifestyle medicine
Mentorship provided by lay people who are living a WFPB lifestyle and knowledgeable about healthy eating
Please complete this interest form by Wednesday, January 16th so that we can design an experience that will meet your needs. Should the program proceed, we expect that it will take place during the month of February, with all live events hosted at JCC Manhattan (334 Amsterdam Avenue) or through web conference.
Plant Powered Manhattan is building the local movement for wellness through whole-food, plant-based (WFPB) nutrition. As a grassroots, volunteer-led collective, we are an independent member organization of the PlantPure Communities Pod Network.
