Engine 2 Healthy Eating Challenge Registration
Friday, December 26th
12:00 AM - 12:00 AM
Whole Foods Market St. Paul, $25

Want to try something new and healthy for your body in 2015? If so, we have just the thing! We are beginning our next 28 day challenge based on The Engine 2 Diet book by Rip Esselstyn. Every Monday at 5:30 PM starting January 12th, Elena, Whole Body Team Member and Registered Dietician, will educate you on how to improve your health and increase your energy and longevity.  We will also have Certified Personal Trainer, Elysia Bires, on hand day one to discuss fitness, and will have other exciting opportunities throughout the challenge.

WHAT IN THE WORLD IS ENGINE 2?  Engine 2 is a plan of action for following — and sticking to — a heart-healthy, mind-healthy, body-healthy, taste-bud-tempting plant-strong® lifestyle, created by former firefighter, Rip Esselstyn. When you follow the Engine 2 Diet, you adopt a whole food, nutrient-dense, plant-strong way of eating. This means you eat a vast variety of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, nuts and seeds. 

Registration for the challenge starts on December 26th and ends on January 9th. Please register in advance by emailing Charissa at charissa.bires@wholefoods.com

*The cost of the class goes towards food samples, space rental, and some other surprise goodies along the way!
