Parkview Mobile Nurses encourage plant-based diets
(Pueblo, CO) – Parkview Medical Center’s mobile nurses are hoping to help Puebloans think more about their diet by elevating the fork over the knife.
The program is designed to encourage a more plant-based diet.
It will last several months but kicked off with a viewing of the documentary film “Forks over Knives” Jan. 18 at the Ryals Room on the fourth floor of the Robert Hoag Rawlings Public Library, 100 E. Abriendo Ave.
The event is free. Then beginning in February, the nurses will be hosting monthly grocery tours to help shoppers get a better idea of how to incorporate more fresh fruits and vegetables into their diet.
The tours will take place every third Wednesday from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. at Albertsons Grocery Store, 1601 U.S. 50 West, through June. Each month will have a separate theme, from simple steps of plant-based eating to incorporating a plant-based diet on a budget.
Both the film and the grocery store tours are free and require no registration.
