January Vegan Life Support Dinner

  • Jan 4, 2013 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Our next Vegan Life Support dinner is at Mandy's house from 6:30-8:30 pm (These VLS dinners are always the first Friday of every month). The Compassionate Living Outreach core team along with some experienced vegan cooks will be providing the food. If you've been to a few of these VLS dinners, please bring a favorite vegan dish to share.  No one else is obligated to bring food.

To conserve resources and cut down on trash, please bring your own plate, bowl, cup, napkin and utensils.  We greatly appreciate your support in this.

We will have a short cooking demo, eat dinner, have another short cooking talk, enjoy dessert, and then have a check-in time where everyone that wants to can talk a bit about where they are with making more conscious food choices.

Non-vegans are particularly welcome. We want to offer support for each person in creating a more healthy compassionate dietstyle. Please feel free to bring a friend to try this tasty vegan food.

We offer a mentor program for anyone who would like weekly contact and support for creating a plant-based dietstyle.

NEW: The dinner will officially conclude at 8:30 pm but at that time, we will put water on the stove for tea. Anyone interested in talking in a more relaxed environment is welcome to stay for tea and talk, with no set end time.

Brad Larsen and Mandy Cimino

    Was vegan for four months, felt great and lost 15 lbs. eventually I simply ran out of food options and slid back to my old eating habits. I need recipes and support. Can somesone recommend a good vegan/vegetarian cookbook?

      LOVE "Vegan on the Cheap" which is full of easy-to-prepare recipes, "normal" foods with normal ingredients, and lots of good comfort food. This is my new go-to vegan cookbook. Good luck!

    This was a wonderful event! The food was amazingly good, omg the crepes, the cookies, the fudge! the Chai!! The baklava that disappeared before I even got a slice! If anyone has receipes they'd like to share from the night, this would be a great place to do it! Also for even more support I encourage all of you to join the numerous Raw Vegan Potluck groups that are going on in our area. Mary of Sonoma Raw is a gem, and once you start looking into raw recipes you really realize the possibilites for vegan are fresh, delicious and Endless!!!
