Many local people know Craig Scharton through his relationship from his work in downtown and neighborhood revitalization. He has also had another relationship…with food! Craig has always been involved in the kitchen and the local food movement, working at one of Fresno's first farm to table restaurants - Echo to eventually opening up his own Pub, famously known as Peeve's Public House on the Fulton Mall. After decades of working long hours and neglecting health, Craig’s blood pressure, cholesterol and blood sugar and triglycerides were out of control. He decided to search for the best nutritional diet. He stumbled on the research that supported a plant-based, whole food lifestyle. After 3 months, all of his metrics have improved, medication has been cut in half and energy, positive outlook and weight loss have been the result. Come enjoy a healthy and tasty meal made from Rip Esselstyn’s Engine 2 Diet cookbook. Craig will be sharing his love of food and showing you how to make A Healthy Homemade Hummus, Rip's Roasted Salad, 3 Bean Chili and Dark Chocolate Brownies.
