The group "I Love Me” was founded in the spirit of natural health, wellness, education and social gathering. The main purpose is to gather like-minded herbivores that are interested in sharing their experiences with plant-based nutrition, as well as gluten and sugar free living. The goal is to bring together people that have a love and passion for health and healing through nutrition.
Is this the group for you?: Whether you have an autoimmune disease, food allergies, moral/ethical reasons, issues with weight, or are just interested in learning and socializing with others; the group aims to bring together knowledgeable guest speakers for educational events, as well as more relaxed social gatherings such as pot-lucks, ingredients, recipe-sharing and food prep, book club, plant-based dinning out, movie night/entertainment, field trips, group exercise/walking, and farmers market meet-ups to name a few. Ultimately bringing together the curious, new, and experienced individual. What we lack in experience, we'll gain through communion.
A plant-based diet is one based on vegetables, grains, legumes and fruit, with little or no animal products (including dairy).
When we have potlucks, please bring only plant-based or vegan dishes (no dairy or eggs) so that everyone can eat all the dishes. Also bring the ingredient list of your dish so other group-members can see if it's o.k. for them to eat.
If you are interested in joining the group, I ask that you are respectful of others views, individual journey, and experience. This group in not intended to convert, only to educate, encourage and convene. I look forward to meeting you and knowing you and your experience.
About the group's name, I Love Me: It came about through my personal journey with my physical health, diet/nutrition and understanding of the world around me and my place in it. We have all heard the saying, "You can't love others, until you learn to love yourself". Well it's one thing to understand the premise intellectually, but it's another to actually live in a way that is a manifestation of your thinking. I realized that to love myself in no way took away from the love I had for others. Loving me is really only the first step in loving you. So, the name is in a way a self-proclaiming prophecy. The more we do it, the better we are at it.
Only paid members are eligible for door prizes and giveaways.
