NOTE: On the plus side, there is a lot of interest in this event. On the negative side, there is a lot of interest in this event. At 26 people at 4:30 on Thursday, I had to freeze the RSVPs. Hope to catch you next time.
Lots of people who sign up to Eugene Veggies say that they want to learn more about eating healthy. So, every once in a while, we watch an educational video on healthy eating. This time, I would like to introduce you to a speech from one of my favorite people on this topic: Jeff Novick. The video is called: "From Oil To Nuts: The Essential Facts of Fats, Oils and Nuts"
Understanding fats, oils and nuts is a great topic, and one that I promised to cover when we did a previous event. Is olive oil really healthy? What about coconut oil? Canola oil? You will be surprised! The speech is not just educational, but entertaining. I've already seen it three times and will be happy to watch it again with you.
>>> What's this about making saladrolls?
Potlucks are fun and delicious, but they take a certain amount of work on your part. Sometimes I like to mix it up and make it super-duper easy for you to attend. So, for this event, all you have to do is RSVP with a 'yes', and show up with $5.
For your $5, you will get to learn how to make saladrolls. I'll supply the ingredients. You can make and eat as many as you like. I'll have lots of various filling options along with one or two (oil-free) dipping options. I'll also likely provide other snacks to eat and tea to drink. It just doesn't get easier to attend an event. Or yummier.
***NOTE: I will send out directions to my house and any last minute information on July 16. E-mail me through the members page if you do not get that e-mail. Meetup e-mails sometimes do not go through. If you send me an e-mail through the members section of Meetup, however, I can usually reply to you through my g-mail account and that usually gets through back to you.
