Lentil-Balls-Edit.jpg   MABP-Kickstart-Edit.jpg
Our 21-Day Jumpstart is under way! This week, participants are preparing to change over their meals and kitchens before diving into a whole food, plant-based lifestyle on Friday. To show off some cooking techniques and simple ingredient swaps, Chef Rebecca Johnson demonstrated “meatballs” made out of lentils.   On Monday, we teamed up with Myrtle Avenue Brooklyn Partnership to run a Food for Life class at the LOCALS BKNY cafe, led by instructor Danielle Medina with Kele Nkhereanye. Participating neighbors tasted an assortment of plant-based dishes, from a hearty bean chili to a vanilla berry sorbet. Learn more about our Food For Life classes here.

According to a promotional video by Adams, if New Yorkers each replaced one quarter-pound of meat from their diet with plant-based protein, it would be the equivalent of planting 350 million trees.
