Plant- Based Cooking with Ella Rodriguez (Zoom)

Join us for a cooking demonstration/lecture about the health benefits of a plant-based diet!

Ella Rodriguez's path towards plant-based nutrition started about eight years ago when she found a lump in her breast. Discouraged by the impersonal treatment and the lack of answers she received from the medical community, Ella decided to read anything she could get her hands on about the subject. Since all the research she found was pointing towards a plant based diet, as a young mother, Ella decided to stop waiting for a diagnosis and instead transitioned her whole family from the Standard American Diet to the Plant Based one.

Determined to learn more and get healthier on her own, Ella completed the Whole Foods Plant Based Nutrition Certification program from eCornell University. Being an educator at heart and wanting to share the information she learned with others, Ella went on to become a Food For Life Instructor through the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) and a Whole Foods – Healthy Teachers Program Instructor. Ella is the mother of two young children and a teacher at a k-8 school in RI. Her passion is inspiring children to eat healthier foods and educating the adults in their lives to provide those opportunities. Ella teaches a variety of nutrition education and cooking classes for adults and children across RI. Ella is the co-leader of the Powered By Plants RI organization, whose goals are to inspire and educate people across RI about the many benefits of the plant based lifestyle.

The program will take place on Zoom. Please email Caroline Badowski to register for the event cbadowski@westerlylibrary.org
