MORRISTOWN, NJ -  A free talk on plant based eating will take place at the Morristown & Morris Township Library on Tuesday April 24 at 7pm. Marisa Sweeney, RDN and Co-founder of New Jersey VegFest will lead the discussion which will offer helpful tips for healthy eating.

The presentation will be geared towards people interested in making the jump to veganism as well as those interested in learning how to make their diet a little more plant-based.  Helpful tips for delicious plant-based cooking options will be offered along with samples of easy to prepare vegan food.

“We have met so many ‘vegan-curious’ people through our New Jersey VegFest events,” said  Sweeney.  “Many are interested in adopting a more plant-based diet but want to do it in a healthy way, making sure to get enough protein and other nutrients.  I created this talk to help people learn how to get started.”
