Today, I’ll be leaving the polar vortex behind and catching a flight to Fort Lauderdale to attend a special event benefiting the Physicians Committee. This event is hosted by Nanci Alexander at her legendary Sublime Restaurant.
Sometimes celebrations can come at the expense of your waistline or heart health—but not at Sublime! This award-winning restaurant features an entirely plant-based menu of global cuisine. In fact, the Sublime Restaurant Cookbook topped the Physicians Committee’s list of the Best Cookbooks of the Decade.
Nanci Alexander, Sublime’s creator, hosted the first Physicians Committee benefit event back in 2008! It was a hit with celebrities, supporters, and friends. This year, I ‘m looking forward to sharing the success of our research studies—including our new study on vegetarian diets and blood pressure and our new research showing the link between meat and diabetes—as well as our many other efforts for plant-based diets. Thanks to these programs, and those of our many allies, meat-eating has fallen to its lowest level in decades.
Hopefully, I’ll see you all there. But even if you won’t be attending the benefit this Friday, be sure to check out Sublime’s menu online and make a reservation the next time you’re in Fort Lauderdale!
