Monthly Vegan Potluck: The Benefits of pH Balance—Acid vs Alkaline

We look forward to seeing you at this Sacramento Vegetarian Society–sponsored event.

5:30: Doors open

6:00: Potluck

6:45: Speaker

"Late" is okay. Drop in whenever it's convenient for you.

Program. Interest in the alkaline diet has grown as more people look toward causes, changing their diets and taking responsibility for their health, rather than covering up symptoms with conventional medicine.

Margaret Gomes, a certified raw food chef and instructor at the Live Food Academy, will bring us up to date on recent nutritional findings and steps to take toward optimal health:

  • What does acid/alkaline mean?
  • What is pH?
  • What is ORP?
  • How can the alkaline diet make a difference to my health?
  • What water should I be drinking?

Come and learn about pH balance and make your own decisions on whether the alkaline diet is a good choice for you.

The Live Food Academy website is at

Potluck. Bring:

  • a vegan (no animal products, including no eggs or dairy products) dish to feed at least six;
  • your plate, bowl, cup, utensils;
  • a recipe or list of ingredients. If you can, please bring extra copies of your recipe to share.

If you can't bring a potluck dish but want to eat, $4 will get you a plate (or bowl) full of vegan goodness! Otherwise, there is no charge for this event.

Baffled by "vegan"? Don't know what to fix? We can help. Drop us a line right here or at [masked].

Parking: Free, off-street, and lots of it.

Bicycle access: Just 2 blocks from the T Street bike path.

Everyone is welcome. Bring your friends, family, neighbors, co-workers, etc.!

See you at the Grange Hall!

    I really enjoyed being there. Thank you Glenn and Mary for the invite, and for allowing me to share my story and some of my knowledge. BTW the stew was really good!

    If you can bring extra copies of your recipe to share—or post them here on Meetup—that would be great. We get lots of requests …

    I am planning to make a stout irish stew (yes, the stout is vegan). I didn't know the topic until recently, but knew it would be St. Patrick's Day... I would change my dish to something raw and green to compliment the theme, but I already have everything for the stew.

      Great, I was hoping someone would bring Irish stew! Don't worry, raw isn't mandatory, and I'm sure there will be a good mix of raw and cooked dishes there.

  • Mary R.

    Anyone making something Irish or raw? I found a fun vegan, no added fat colcannon recipe I'm dying to try. We'll do something raw with that lovely head of cabbage, too.

    I am bringing three guests, but can only enter two

      Sorry, Joyce, we didn't change the default settings but will right now. Thanks for the notice. See you tomorrow!
