"My Beef with Meat" Event with Rip Esselstyn
Thursday, May 16th
5:30 PM
Portland Maine, $25

Meet Rip! The new book, "My Beef With Meat" will only have been out for 2 days when Rip joins us in Maine - with 140 new plant-strong Engine 2 recipes!

Signed copy of the book and goody bag to all attendees.

 

THE ENGINE 2 DIET was created and implemented by Rip Esselstyn, a former world-class professional tri-athlete and the son, grandson and great-grandson of renowned physicians, after he discovered the dangerously high cholesterol level (344!) of one of his fellow firefighters at the Austin (TX) Engine 2 Station. The results of his revolutionary, plant-based diet were so dramatic – and the food so delicious and easy-to-prepare – that Rip’s program received media coverage on NPR, in the New York Times and in several newspapers across the country.

 

Rip saved countless lives as a firefighter. Now he is saving millions more with his New York Times best-selling book, THE ENGINE 2 DIET. His groundbreaking nutritional program with indisputable, dramatic results allows you to lower cholesterol and lose weight in just 4 weeks by eating foods that are plant-based, nutrient-dense, naturally low in calories and high in fiber.
