Take 28-Day, Engine 2 Challenge!
Tuesday, January 6th | 6:00pm


Location:
Whole Foods Market
621 Broad St, Durham


It’s a new year, and taking charge of your health with a plant-based diet is a great resolution! Our strategy is to meet you where you are at, help you identify areas to improve your health and nutrition, and provide you with the tools to help you get on the path to healthier eating.

Join us Tuesday, January 6th at 6:00pm for an in-depth exploration of the Engine 2 Diet: 28-Day Challenge. The 28-Day Challenge is based on Rip Esselstyn’s national best-selling book, The Engine 2 Diet — a practical guide for eating PlantStrong. At the orientation we’ll explain how the 28-Day Challenge works, meeting dates and times, and tools you will need to succeed.

Our Challenge goes beyond a simple class, and includes store tours, culinary demonstrations, and cooking classes.

This is a free program but space is limited and registration is required.

For more information and to reserve your spot, visit http://bit.ly/1tyhGoF.

The last day to sign-up is Saturday, January 10th.
