Nearly seven years ago, Marc Blanchette began his transition to a plant-based lifestyle during his 184 lb. weight loss. He has continued to maintain his health and weight with exercise and a diet of grains, fruits, beans, legumes and vegetables. In this class, he will share his story and experience through this journey. Marc will share the steps that he took to find better health through the power of a plant-based lifestyle. The class is designed to show how simple and affordable this way of cooking and eating can be, dispel the myths, break stereotypes and equip participants with the tools and resources needed to be successful. There will be cooking demos, food to sample, easily prepared recipes to share, local shopping tips and group support. Makeup class, if needed, 10/22/19. Note: The first class ONLY will be held at the Ellsworth Adult Education location, 248 State Street, Suite 1, Ellsworth.
