Announcing a new Meetup for Viva La Vegan PORTLAND - Metro!
What: NW Veg Vegan Potluck (Westside) and Raw Food Presentation
When: August 16,[masked]:00 PM
Where: West Hills Universal Unitarian Fellowship, 8470 SW Oleson Rd., Portland
Join Northwest VEG for our monthly potluck event featuring a raw food presentation by Tashi Rana.
Venue opens about 5pm and we start eating about 5:15pm.
Following the potluck, about 6:30pm, join Tashi Rana for her presentation "Transitioning to a Raw Food Diet". Raw food is more than a fad -- it is a trend which has the potential to dramatically impact human health on all levels and keep global ecology in balance. This month's potluck talk and food prep demonstration will focus on easy ways to prepare and enjoy raw foods as well as the physical transformations, mental clarity, emotional release, and social challenges that commonly occur once people "go raw".
Tashi Rana is a nutrition consultant and educator who emphasizes the inclusion and benefits of raw foods in people's diets. She is a student of Gabriel Cousens, MD and will receive her Master's in Vegan/Live-food Nutrition through the University of Integrated Science this October.
The potluck will be at the West Hills Universal Unitarian Fellowship, 8470 SW Oleson Rd., Portland. Please bring a plant-based (no animal products, including honey) main dish, salad, or dessert; a card listing its ingredients; and plates and utensils for your use. Need plant-based ideas?

Northwest VEG potlucks are alcohol-free events.
