Medical Center’s Café Goes Veg

Hospitals and their staff should promote healthy lifestyles. In Maine, a great example to follow can be found at Parkview Adventist Medical Center in Brunswick. In this hospital's cafe (open to staff and visitors) the menu is 100 percent vegetarian, about 70 percent organic and locally sourced whenever possible. Moreover, all products that contain high fructose corn syrup, hydrogenated oils or genetically modified ingredients are avoided. "The idea is, we're the hospital and we should set an example of promoting health," said Chef Oleg Opalnyk, Parkview's head of nutritional services.

What a fantastic example this medical center is setting! Hopefully, other health institutions will learn about the benefits of a plant-based diet and make changes that will reflect their desire to promote healthy habits.
