January 24 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

EVENT FULL – Please contact Laura Carbonneau at outreach@monadnockfood.coop if you are interested in being added to the wait list.

Free workshop!

We’ve all heard about “Meatless Mondays.” Join nutritionist, Cynthia Knipe, for this two-part series exploring the environmental, economic and many health benefits of incorporating more plant-based proteins into our menus every day of the week.

Deep reds, bright oranges, yellows and greens, rich browns and onyx black – so beautiful to look at, and so delicious too. We’ll explore the many health benefits of pulses, from lowering cholesterol to stabilizing blood sugar to the abundant vitamins, minerals and fiber these gems have to offer . . . and they’re quicker and easier to cook than you thought! Recipes and a delicious sample for tasting will be provided.
