What Denise Rispoli (. is saying about this Meetup Group

This meetup is the place to be if you want to live a long and healthy life. The people who are a part of this group are amazing, warm and concerned citizens who see beyond people's differences and join together to share their lifestyle of healthy eating, conscious living and overwhelming joy! This meetup is more than just a place to share food -- it is a place to be a part of a growing community of concerned and compassionate people who love the earth and the creatures who inhabit her. We are also most passionate about sharing the wealth of information we all gather about living well and we love to share our experiences, recipes and ideas with other members.

    Hi Denise,
    Great to see you on-line. I look forward to getting to meet you in person soon. I too used to own a healthy cafe. Now I specialize more on the healthier coffee side. I would love to get to know you better. Let me know when is a good time to come across the bay. Health Coach Susie [masked] [masked]

    Hi Denise, We met several years ago at a raw potluck as Josh and Manny's. Glad to see you're still here at "Leafy". Hope to get down there for lunch after Mainsail!

    Hi all...Waiting for a plane from Chicago's Veganmania where I spoke yesterday, heading to speak at San Francisco's Vegfest next weekend, then Tampa, Orlando & San Diego VegFests coming up next. Then home for the holidays. Hope to get back to your wonderful restaurant soon. Ate at Karyn's on Green in Chicago & had incredible raw food. Food pix to inspire on my Eat Vegan Facebook page.

    Hi Denise! I was in your cafe today and really enjoyed the food is there any way to take a cooking class so that I can learn to make some raw food meals?

    Hi Denise!

    I would really like to go to the events at Leafy Green. Unfortunately, I live in Sarasota and currently am not driving. I would be more than happy to pay for gas for someone who could give me a ride.
