I support the Bronx #not 62 campaign, but I do think we should make it the Bronx #1 campaign, for we have the most parks in the city already, and the rest is attitude, practice and perseverance.
Monthly #WFPB Cooking Class at St. Helena
My monthly cooking class in St. Helena’s School Cafeteria has been suspended since the Covid Lockdowns, but I am hoping to bring it back in some form.
Typically on the 3rd Tuesday of the month, we have a monthly dinner at Neerob Restaurant on Starling Avenue. You can RSVP online via Eventbrite, by searching for Neerob. Fr David Powers of St. Helena’s parish and myself are the anchors of this event, but it is at 9PM, after Father David’s Bible Class. However, starting in May of 2023, I will be doing a one hour consultation on Whole Foods Plant-Based nutrition and lifestyle, at Neerob at 8 PM. If 9 PM is too late for you, You can have a #WFPB dinner at Neerob at 7 PM, and still join us for the talk, or you can come early for the 9 PM dinner, and join in as well. This one hour will be purely about practical issues, but always anchored in the good theory of Whole Foods Plant-Based nutrition.
In May of 2023, we are also starting with a breakfast on the last Saturday of the month at Neerob, from 10-12.
In 2018, we held our first “Dinner for Doctors” at Neerob Restaurant. In 2019 we are planning another one for March 21st. The dinner is primarily for local area doctors and their staff, but open to the general public. Tickets area available on Eventbrite under Neerob. Again, these have been suspended because of Covid lockdowns, but we are now planning a monthly dinner for Type 2 Diabetes patients who want to learn how to improve or reverse their condition with a Whole Foods, Plant-Based lifestyle.
- Major events on Eventbrite under Neerob
- I have abandoned Facebook and Nextdoor, due to censorship, but you can find me on MeWe.
- My Local Plant-based Blog: Starling Avenue Plant-Based Living.
You can find our events on the site for Plant Powered Metro NY. My blog (see link above) is focused on resources for the plant-based lifestyle in our neighborhood, which I call the Starling Avenue Triangle, since we have a triangle of three major supermarkets, Chang-li, Key foods, and Pioneer, and through the middle of it runs Starling Avenue which has a plethora of Bangladeshi food stores, and restaurants, including Neerob, where our activities in the neighborhood are centered. Periodically I conduct shopping tours for people who want to avail themselves of the rich shopping resources in this neighborhood.
