Resolve to Save the Planet, Lose Weight with Sublime's Pumpkin Cheesecake
If you're like most people, your New Year's resolution probably includes shaving off a few pounds, shrinking your carbon footprint, and doing various good deeds to make the world a better place - blah, blah, blah. Well, the kind folks at the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine have a way for you to kill three birds with one stone - except with their 21-day Vegan Kickstart Program, you won't be harming any birds in the process.
The kickstart promises to be a life-changing event that will benefit your health, the animal kingdom, and the environment. If you sign up, the program will email you menus and recipes like the one for faux chicken pot pie (pictured here), nutrition webcasts, and daily encouraging messages from celebrities. You can get even more help with your new diet at Sublime, which just launched some new menu items in celebration of its third anniversary. Be among the first to check out
the barbecue tartlets appetizer - sloppy Joe style crumbles with house-made barbecue sauce and carmelized onion ($9) and the portobello stack of sautéed spinach, roasted tomato, red potatoes, and cauliflower mash ($19). For dessert, try the festive pumpkin cheesecake. You won't even feel like you're on a diet.
