Hello good folks of the New Orleans Vegetarian Meetup Group,
Paul Berry writing you here...
(Next Friday, November 4, 2011, 6:00 PM at Divine Kundalini Yoga Studio, 1223 Baronne St. NOLA)
There have been a few questions about (1) the Raw Food Demo next Friday, and (2) the follow-up to it, the three-week "Whole Health Cleanse" that kicks off the Monday after.
Hopefully, those questions are answered by the info provide below. Any other questions, please feel free to email me ([address removed]).
(1) The Raw Food Demo is next Friday evening:
The meeting next Friday is a presentation on the benefits of a Raw Food Diet. If you're a vegetarian or vegan, you don't want to miss this important information!
If you're interested in the info, but can't make the Friday evening presentation, email me and I'll forward the materials to you (no charge!).
At the presentation, we'll also demo a few raw food recipes and give everyone samples.
So we'll know how much food to prepare, Please RSVP soon and let us know if you're bringing a guest. (the more the merrier- just let us know soon!)
There is no cost for the Raw Food Demo or food samples, but the organizers have suggested a $5 donation to benefit the Humane Society of Louisiana. (Great cause!)
(2) The Whole Health Cleanse kicks off the Monday after:
At the presentation next Friday, we'll learn how a *properly combined and sequenced* (vegan) diet of (mostly) fresh, whole (raw) foods is naturally cleansing and detoxifying. You'll learn how such a diet can affect your body, mind and spirit- your "Whole Health".
For those interested, the following Monday, we'll kick off a three-week "Whole Health Cleanse", that's based on the Raw Food diet *above*.
(Doing this Cleanse is a great way to try out raw foods and at the same time, re-charge your health, especially in advance of the feast-filled holiday season ahead.)
There's no cost to do the Cleanse (except for the groceries you'll need to purchase, of course).
If you sign-up for the Cleanse, you'll be provided an e-booklet (free) that'll have all the information you'll need, including a daily meal planner, basic recipes and shopping list.
We'll also set up a private web space for us to collaborate on during the three-week Cleanse (yep, free). For most of us, trying something new like this is always easier as a group than going it alone. The group dialogue ongoing will be informative and can be very encouraging for some of us who struggle with bagels and such...
If you can't make the Presentation on Friday, you can still do the Cleanse. Just email me and I'll send you all the info.
How did I do?
I hope I answered all your questions! If not, email me ([address removed]) - I'd be glad to hear from you!
And I especially hope you'll come out next Friday for the Raw Food demo. Bring a friend too - just remember to RSVP, so we have enough food samples to go around!
See you next Friday,
