EVENT FULL: Beyond Meatless Monday: Tempeh Tuesdays and Tofu Thursdays
January 10 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
This event is now closed.
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.
We’ll sort through the research and consider the facts versus the myths of this versatile complete protein source. We’ll talk about the various forms available – including locally sourced tempeh from Lightlife in Turners Falls and Nasoya tofu from Ayer, MA. Delicious recipes will be provided, and there will be a sample for tasting.
