(Canastota, NY – Feb. 2013) Forks Over Knives—the book, the film, the movement—is back again in a Cookbook. This whole-foods, plant-based diet is sweeping the country. If you want to lose weight, lower your cholesterol, and prevent (or even reverse) chronic conditions such as heart disease and type 2 diabetes, Forks Over Knives touts that the right food is your best medicine. Thousands of people have cut out meat, dairy, and oils and have seen amazing results using these recipes.
One of the Canastota Public Library’s staffmembers, Angela Rigler, has been working her way through the 300 recipes in the Forks Over Knives Cookbook. Rigler feels the recipes are simple and affordable, and the food is delicious.
On Wednesday, Feb. 27 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. join us for a cooking demonstration by Rigler. Angela, who will be assisted by her husband Karl, will be creating several dishes and a desert for folks to sample. She will explain this plant-based cookbook and its importance.
This program will be held in the Lawson Community Room and is open to the public. There is no charge. Seating may be limited.
The Canastota Public Library, at 102 W. Center Street in Canastota has both the Forks Over Knives Cookbook and documentary of the same name available for borrowing.
