Potluck Dinner @Shine's Place

  • Apr 26, 2014 · 5:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

[Updated some formatting and added tips on 4/18]

Hello Raw Food Enthusiasts! 

Spring is upon us and let's meet and greet. Now that I finally moved to a bigger place, I'd love to host a raw vegan potluck at my place to CELEBRATE my 2 YEARS OF BEING HIGH RAW VEGAN with you all! :)

A few things to note:

1. Due to limited space, I'm opening it to 15 people - please RSVP soon. There is NO FEE for this meetup.

2. A week before the meetup date, please add a comment about your dish. This is so we don't have 10 salads and no dressings! I will be posting my dish too.

3. On the day of the meetup, please write down your recipe on a paper so other folks can recreate it. 

4. Any help with bringing disposable plates / bowls / glasses / silverware will be appreciated. I will have some but may not be sufficient.

5. Last but not the least, it's my home where this meetup will happen. Please be respectful of everyone's time and personal belongings.


Some tips:

• For your share, bring enough food for 1 person

• It's fine if some people bring only fruits. Remember, it's not a fruit-luck!

• Bringing food in serving bowls helps as I may not have enough of those at home


My dish: Fresh green juice. Apple + lemon + kale and celery + carrot + ginger (or any combo of these)

I look forward to seeing/meeting you next week.

    Hello Shine . . . I too am arriving late though I feel it's fair for others to get the chance to come since I a may unexpectedly be an hour late . . . I am changing my RSVP now . . . Peace

      Though I am usually early to get this info to you I am smack dab in the middle of a move . . . I will drop off some of my raw/vegan/organic NourishMylkShakes even if after the potluck some time so you can taste what I will bring next time

    A couple of last minute things - some folks are yet to post their dishes and some told me offline that they had a change of plans. Please add your dish and/or change your RSVP so others get a chance.

    April 25, 2014

    • Shine

      Yes, you're welcome to bring her. Just add a guest to your RSVP. See you shortly

      Hi Shine, my apologies for this short notice, but I will not be able to attend this time. I look forward to the next opportunity.

    Just sent an email to the 'Yes' RSVPs with directions and instructions to enter my apartment building. The email also has my cell number, should you need it.

    It has become clear that I won't be able to make it tomorrow so I changed my RSVP to No.

    Thanks Shine! Since we are all bringing our own dishes, I suggest we also bring our own utensils, that will cut down on the disposable needs.

    1 · April 24, 2014

    • Shine

      Great! I do have regular utensils but not for 15 of us. So I preferred to have some disposables at hand. But if folks want to bring their own, YAY FOR NO WASTE!!

    Hi Shine and everyone: I am moving Tuesday and the person who is supposed to help me with packing got sick. So I might not be able to make it on Saturday. Hopefully there will be another potluck soon. If I am able to be there, I was planning to bring a mixed greens and cabbages salad with a mango-tahini or mango-avocado dressing.

  • Shine

    Hello everyone. I look forward to meeting you day after tomorrow! Please comment on what you'll be bringing if you haven't already. Can someone bring some disposable spoons, forks, and plates? I have plenty of glasses and bowls.
