Mostly Plants: Pollan Family Demonstrates Healthy Eating at Princeton Medical Center

June 10, 2019
Dana, Lori and Corky Pollan Cooking Discussion and Demo at PMC

Sisters Dana and Lori Pollan and their mother, Corky, brought their family table to Princeton Medical Center (PMC) on June 5 during a special event to highlight healthy, plant-centric eating.

The Pollans’ New York Times bestselling cookbook — Mostly Plants: 101 Delicious Flexitarian Recipes from the Pollan Family, co-written with their sister/daughter Tracy Pollan — offers a practical, inclusive guide to healthy eating. Some dishes featured in the book include meat, poultry, or seafood, but plants always play a starring role. Recipes in the book can be adapted to fit any lifestyle or dietary restriction, and most can be prepared in 35 minutes or less.

At the event, an audience of nearly 200 people were treated to a moderated discussion on eating healthy, a live cooking demonstration, and samples of the book’s recipes prepared by the PMC nutrition staff. The discussion was moderated by Maryann Morgan, co-host of WMGQ-FM’s Joel and Maryann in the Morning.
