As a co-organizer of this meet up,  I am excited  to invite you to join  this Month Potluck  at Light House in Santa Clara.

we will start our potluck with 20 minutes of breathing, a welcome gathering and talk about why to eat together and what eating healthy food mean.

i hope to meet you/see you there.







  • Please bring a raw vegan dish that can serve  6-10 people.
  • Please bring a list of the ingredients to put along side your dish. This list can also include any info that describes the name of the dish & its ingredients. Fyi - I have name plates that hold a paper size of 5 inches wide and 1.5 inches deep. ....and have paper, too.
  • We encourage you to get creative, make your own, a favorite dish from your favorite raw cook book, or blogger, or other. Feel free to write the group for ideas.
  • Food guidelines/ingredients: 
    • Vegan
    • Agave-free is best.
    • No white sugar.
    • Seasonal, local, organic, sustainable, biodynamic, fair trade is best.
    • If you have questions, just send me an email, or post it on the groups message board.
  • If you are new to raw food -and want/need to keep it simple- you can bring fruits, cut veggies or a simple salad w/a raw dressing.


I will put out a 'donation jar' to help pay for the monthly MeetUp fee, this donation is optional and the amount you put in is totally up to you.


4:30pm: Arrival

4:45pm: Circle - Breathing, talk, Introductions (you/your dish, the ingredients)... welcome newcomers.

We'll celebrate all the creations (both food and drink), and will give a special nod to:

  • the dish/drink that exceeds in flavor, texture and/or looks
  • the dish/drink that exceeds in creativity (feel free to bring props, b/c creativity includes flavor, the process and the presentation)
  • the person who stretched the most (we'll give a bow to the one(s) who went waaay outside their comfort zone)
  • the most s i m p l e, yet tasty and creative dish/drink (this could be a single food item that came from your backyard)
  • the dish/drink that falls under the 'difficult' category (qualifiers for this category are too toooo many to name)
  • the dish/drink that falls under the 'most outrageous' category (qualifiers for this category are unknown to name)
  • the dish/drink that _______. I'm sure - at the table - we'll come up with more special nods.

    I'm bringing chocolate truffles and nutty caramels. I won't get there until six, so bringing dessert is perfect!
