ENC to hold plant-based eating series

Join the Environmental Nature Center (ENC) for monthly plant-based eating classes. Plant-based or plant-forward eating helps reduce the risk of heart disease, diabetes, certain cancers and depression, while improving mental and physical health. Plant-based diets also help the environment. It takes 11 times more energy and 100 times more water to produce animal protein than it does plant protein. The classes will help make it easier for you to eat more plants in 2022.

Enjoy Ayurvedic Cuisine from Nourish Organic

Ayurvedic Cuisine with Nourish: ENC and their friends from Nourish Organic are holding a fun and informative Ayurvedic Cooking Demo on Sunday, March 27 from 1-2:30 p.m. According to Nourish, “Ayurvedic cuisine is unique in the world for its emphasis on making sure each dish is cooked and spiced in a way to achieve maximum digestibility, absorption and elimination, as well as taste and food value. The insight and thoughtfulness that go into Ayurvedic cooking is so deep that nothing less than consciousness itself is what is at play. Delicious taste, texture, beauty and aroma are just the beginning of how food ultimately makes us feel. What we eat is the very material that comprises our physical bodies and our minds; and whose qualities naturally have profound effects on us physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.” Cost: Members are $7.50; Walk/Ride Bike Guests are $9 and Non-members are $10. To register, go here.

Environmental Nature Center is located at 1601 E. 16th St., Newport Beach.
