Local author Patti Breitman will be joining us this month talking about her latest book, Never Too Late to Go Vegan. This book is the first to address the social and nutritional issues of going vegan when you are a mature adult. The book includes practical tips, stories from people who went vegan after age 50, and more than 75 recipes for festive and every day eating. Co-authored with Carol J. Adams and Virginia Messina, MPH, RD, the book includes sound nutritional recommendations to reduce chronic disease, maintain bone health and skin vibrancy, and feel great as we age.
Patti Breitman is director of the Marin Vegetarian Education Group and a co-founder of Dharma Voices for Animals. She is on the advisory council of the Animals & Society Institute, an effective not for profit organization that brings science and knowledge together with ethics and compassion. Patti has been a vegan since 1986 and has been teaching cooking classes for 15 years. She is the co-author of How To Say No Without Feeling Guilty and of How To Eat Like a Vegetarian, Even If You Never Want to Be One.
Join us for great food and conversation at our monthly vegan potluck! Remember, you don't have to be vegan or vegetarian to attend. Just show up with a vegan dish to share with at least 8 people. Vegan simply means no animal products — no meat, dairy, eggs or honey.
Please also remember to bring your own plate, cup and silverware utensils. We would like to make this a waste-free event.
We are deeply grateful to the Sonoma Humane Society for continuing to make their classroom available to us for our potlucks and other events. The Sonoma Humane Society is just west of Llano Rd. on the north side of Highway 12, between Santa Rosa and Sebastopol (look for the big metal dog). You can park around back if you'd like, the classroom is the furthest left door on the back of the building. For more information: socoveg.org.
