Introduction to Heart Smart Oil Free food, with dinner meetup @ Doodle

Dear Friends,

Some time ago Ms Mayura Mohta (Health Friend) and Dr George Jacobs (VSS President) wrote a cook book based on the research of Dr Caldwell Esselstyn, encouraging people to adopt an oil-free, plant-based diet. Some famous follower of this diet includes Bill Clinton and Mr Khaw Boon Wan.

Attached is a video on Dr Esselstyn's talk.

And the website of the restaurant.

The dinner is specially prepared for us, although the restaurant itself is not a vegetarian restaurant, the dishes will be vegan.


Appetizer: Refreshing rice noodle salad

Main: Falafel with quinoa and eggplant dips in pita bread,

Garden greens with tamarind ginger dressing

Dessert: Mixed fruit platter

Price is $15 excluding drinks, but there will be water provided.

Registration for this dinner is confirmed upon payment received. Kindly bank transfer to POSB savings account:[masked]-2.

Please let Pauline ([masked]) know your transaction ref no.

    Before we enjoy the dinner, I'll be doing a brief talk introducing the idea of oil free food, and we'll show a 9min clip from a recent CNN documentary, 'The Last Heart Attack', featuring Dr Esselstyn. Copies of The Heart Smart Oil Free Cookbook will be available for purchase.
