Kristie Middleton – Meatless Mondays








The February 12th GNJSHFSA Event “Putting Health On Your Menu” was a great success!

Kristie Middleton of “The Humane Society” gave a compelling talk to a ‘sold-out’ crowd of 50+ GNJSHFSA members and guests.  Kristie spoke about the benefits of incorporating Meatless Monday’s into our hospital cafeterias.  Plus, she provided examples of how other hospitals have successfully launched their Meatless Monday campaigns.

Plus here is a video Kristie shared with us.

Following Kristie’s talk, we had the privilege of watching Valley Hospital’s very own Executive Chef John Graziano provide us with an engaging and entertaining cooking demonstration.  Earlier in the evening we had the tasty pleasure of partaking in a meatless buffet meal.  Chef John then demonstrated to us how to prepare each of the courses.

One delicious entree was – Whole Grain Spaghetti with Curried Butternut Squash Sauce and Quinoa Falafel Balls
