Nutrition program at Wright Center



ELLSWORTH — Ellsworth City Council Chairman Marc Blanchette will share his story of successful weight loss and cholesterol reduction when he changed to a whole food, plant-based diet in a talk at the Beth C. Wright Cancer Resource Center.

The program is scheduled for Wednesday, June 20, from 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. It is free and open to everyone.

Blanchette will talk about the healthy and fun aspects of this lifestyle and will share some of his recipes that led to his success.

Participants will help prepare an oil-free, healthy hummus and a “What’s in your bowl?” plant-based meal in the center’s kitchen.
