Jewel’s Bakery and Cafe, a local gluten-free eatery at 40th Street and Thomas Road, is partnering up with the Valley’s best health experts to launch a series called “Talk with the Doc.”

Every month the bakery will shut down for an evening of discussion on a certain health related topic. This month, Dr. Ben Taati will give an introductory presentation on the benefits of a plant-based diet, 6:30 p.m. Thursday, March 10. Tickets can be purchased online for $15, which includes a meal. Additionally, you can bring a friend and receive two tickets for $25, which includes a meal.

This new educational series is aligned with the business model of Julie Moreno, owner of Jewel’s, who aims to provide a greater number of healthy, fast-casual menu options to Valley residents.

Jewel’s Bakery and Café is located at 4041 E. Thomas Road. To reserve a seat for the program, call 602-714-5241. For more information, check their Facebook page.
