Go Plant-Strong!
The Daily Beet: Tips, Advice and Stories

BCBS Providence, RI

We love to hear about companies teaming up for an Engine 2 Challenge! On Monday, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Providence, RI (BCBSRI) kicked off their challenge with over 100 employees participating. Last week, Whole Foods Market – Healthy Eating Specialist, Jennifer Groff along with Chef Mike planned a kick off cookout for the participants.

Plant-Strong recipes were made and shared with the group. The menu included Baked Oil-Free Corn Chips, Mango Black Bean Salsa, Mike’s Roasted Red Pepper Hummus, Creamy Potato Salad, Massaged Kale Salad, Fresh Tomato and Avocado Pasta Salad, and Spicy Black Bean and Spinach Burgers. The challengers even enjoyed watermelon cake with cashew cream for dessert! Recipe books sent home with each challenger as well.

Special thanks to Narine Lemme of BCBSRI for coordinating this effort and to Demo Coordinator Renee for taking all of the photos.

We’ll be cheering for you BCBSRI!

    I started the challenge as a cadet! So far, so good. Being a native New Englander and lover of all things out of the sea, I’m not sure I can give them up permanently, but for the 28 day challenge, I’m all in!!!

    I started the challenge about 5 days early, and by end of the first week 7/4, I have lost 6 pounds. Feel great!
