This is another cook-together event! But with a fun twist.
I think one of the big barriers to healthy eating is having a sense that one can put together a meal with what is in one's cupboard and/or not having to follow a recipe. If you grow up learning to eat and cook one way, knowing how to use a different set of ingredients confidently can be quite a challenge.
So, I'm going to share my personal secrets with you. I'll talk for a bit about pantry staples and the anatomy of how to quickly put together several Do-It-Yourself (DIY) meals. Then with the ingredients provided, you will get to give it a try, putting together your own bowl.
I invite all of the experienced plant based eaters to come so that you can share your tips as well. And of course, all you newbies who said you are looking for ideas, this event is made just for you!
I will provide all of the ingredients. All you have to do is bring $5 per person and the willingness to step outside the recipe box.
If I can, we will do dessert and a salad, but I'm not promising that. Because I will be buying ingredients and making plans based on the Yes RSVPs, please be especially considerate in managing your communication. Anyone with a 'Yes' RSVP between February 13 and 16 will be on the hook for the $5 whether you attend or not. (Just change a 'yes' RSVP to a 'no' before Feb 12 to avoid the fee.)
I'll be sending out an e-mail on February 12 with directions to my house and last minute information and instructions. Please let me know if you do not receive the e-mail. (Meetup e-mails seem to get stuck in spam quite often.)
There is a 20 person limit to this event. But since Meetup will manage a wait-list, please do sign up even if the 20 maximum is reached.
I hope to see you there!
