Afraid of Brussels sprouts? Does the thought of roasted eggplant make you cringe? Still push peas to the edge of your plate (and onto the floor)? Jessica Murnane is here to help.

The author has written One Part Plant, a simple guide to eating at least one delicious plant-based meal a day. The book has received rave reviews from the likes of Laila Ali to Girls creator Lena Dunham who writes in the forward, “This book will change your life.”

Serving as The Daily’s “earth” counterpart to the turf-centric three class series led by chef Aaron Swersky, The One Part Plant class series takes place Wed., March 15 and Wed., March 22. The first class focuses on “food as medicine”; Murnane will share a personal story about how changing her diet and eating only “whole” food helped her avoid a major surgery. Attendees learn about the medicinal powers of food as well as how to prepare healthy to-go meals in their own kitchens.

The second class focuses on “eating more real food” and Murnane will guide attendees through cooking demos of some of her most popular dishes. The author shares her top 10 pantry basics, how to cook gluten and dairy free dishes (without hating them), and how to prepare plant-based desserts.

Both classes are from 6 to 8 p.m. at The Daily and include food and a welcome drink, plus tax and tip; cost is $60 per person or $75 for the class plus a signed copy of One Part Plant.
