Moxie Tuesday Workshop: THE POWER OF PLANT-BASED PROTEINS
Tuesday, April 11, 2017 – 7:oopm to 8:30pm
555 Carpenter Lane, Philadelphia, PA 19119

For years, it was assumed that the only way to build muscle was to consume meat. These days, however, the focus has shifted from the type of protein to the quality of protein. Unlike animal protein sources, plant-based protein can offer fiber, antioxidants, and phytochemicals. Multiple studies have shown that a diet high in plant-based foods is associated with a decreased risk of chronic diseases such as cancer, heart disease, stroke and obesity. Additionally, a plant-based diet is cheaper, low in saturated fat and cholesterol, and better for the environment!
This workshop will discuss the nutritional benefits of several plant-based proteins, such as beans, lentils, chia and hemp seeds, quinoa, and more, and will include recipes and suggestions for incorporating these proteins into your diet. REGISTER HERE.
