A Healthy Transition from Summer to Autumn:
East Asian cultures celebrate five seasons in the year, whereas in the West we observe just four. The fifth season is especially important for Washingtonians because it covers the dog days after the heat of summery June and the cooler days of autumnal September. In Washington DC the weather seems to make even the tiniest of tasks more difficult. But this is the perfect time to benefit your body and mind with the abundant fruits and vegetables available. In this Meetup we will talk about foods that will nourish your body, mind and soul, seasonal actions that are appropriate, and how to look at dampness and humidity as a beneficial climactic aspect rather than something that just has to be endured.
Enjoy a delicious, seasonal buffet dinner when you arrive.
Menu: Tofu Kebab; Brown & Wild Rice; Summer Salad; Corn on the Cob; Grilled Peaches w/ Cookies
