We know eating a plant based diet is better for our health, and the health of the planet. But many love meat, or are at a loss for what to prepare when meat is no longer the focal point of the meal. Heading into the summer season is a great time to experiment with more plants on your plate. Dena Irwin, registered dietitian and nutritionist, and Steven Raichlen, author and chef, join us on The Point to discuss delicious ways to incorporate more plants into our meals. Raichlen’s latest book is How To Grill Vegetables.

Mindy Todd is the host and producer of The Point on WCAI which examines critical issues for Cape Cod and the Islands. She brings more than 30 years of experience in radio and television to WCAI.
