We are doing something different in 2010. On March 14, 2010, Journey Inward group will join forces with Suburban Chicago Vegetarian Meetup (http://www.meetup.com...) to have a Vegetarian Potluck Social. For those members who are not familiar with vegetarian and vegan, a vegan is someone who doesn’t eat animal products: meat, fish, milk products, eggs, or honey. Many vegans also avoid fur, leather, and wool as these products generally result in the confinement, abuse, or slaughter of animals. If you are curious about becoming a vegetarian then this is a great way to meet some great people, taste some very delicious food and ask questions. Everyone is welcome to this event. You can get some great recipes and learn more about vegan at at http://www.vegcooking... and http://www.vegweb.com... Please make sure your dish is dairy/egg/honey free (vegan) and bring the ingredients on a card so anyone with allergies will know what's in the dish. Don't know what to cook? Stop by Whole Foods or Trader Joes and pick something up. Click http://www.traderjoes... here to view all of TJ's vegan items.. Please post what you will be bringing and write the recipe on the http://www.meetup.com... message board at the Suburban Chicago Vegetarian Meetup site. There will be handouts for those people who are interested in learning more about the vegetarian lifestyle. Dont' forget to bring your favorite game as well as your dish, because we'll be hanging out afterwards to play our favorite board/card games!!! (please bring place setting and water bottle/drink). We will also have a donation box setup for the Heartland Animal Shelter. Please note that as much as Heartland appreciates all donations, they can't use everything people donate due to diet restrictions, safety issues, etc. Please view their wishlist here before purchasing a donation. Thank you!!! This is a great opportunity for both groups to mingle and get to know each other better.
