Marty's Monthly Meet and Greet

  • This location is shown only to members

A chance to talk healthy eating with others. Get inspired, learn a few new things, and talk to other people about healthy whole foods! Always looking for discussion topics that people might be interested in learning more about, so feel free to throw some out! We talked a little about foods that help detoxify at the February meeting. March is a good time to talk about real cleanses, so I may focus a little on that, pending other popular suggestions!

    Thanks again Caitlin the meeting was great. Nice to see new faces interested in the group. I would like to suggest a topic for future meetings. I am fine preparing meals for myself at home. I get a little iffy when having to eat out. With graduation, communions, picinics... on the horizon I am hoping you have some ideas on how to not be a stick in the mud at these events. Maybe we could share some recipes that I could take to an event that would be good for all.

      Gerald, funny you mention that, because a recipe exchange is something I actually was thinking about as a possibility for the group! Great minds, eh? I was thinking about doing a taste test of different types of grains for the next meeting and some recipe ideas for them, tying it in with a little information about being gluten/wheat-free, since that is such a hot topic these days (and a healthy thing to try out!)

    I loved the meeting. I learned a lot. I didn't know to not hear up olive oil. So I'm glad to know that. I do have a couple of questions. 1. Are there certain oils I should use for certain foods? Like fish vs chicken vs veggies when cooking.
    2. What can you tell me about chia seeds. I think I spelled that right. I e heard about them but would like to know more. I really know relatively nothing about them.

    Thank you for a great presentation!!

      It was nice to see you at the meeting last night. I just wanted to let you know that I think you have made a very smart choice for a better life. If you have any questions I would be glad to try and answer them or at least offer an opinion. My "degree is from the school of hard knocks but I love to exchange ideas with others on this topic. Take care.

      Thanks for the welcome. And you will definitely see me at more meetings. I love how I feel and do not want to go back to my old ways. And thank you for offering advice, Gerald. I will be sure to take advantage of that.

    Great meeting tonight guys! Thanks to all who made it! I did want to make one correction to something I said in error. When we were talking about coconut oil, I was speaking too quickly off the top of my head when I said it was known for it's hyaluronic acid, which is FALSE. I meant to say LAURIC acid! It dawned on me as I rocked my baby to sleep tonight that I'd misspoken. So sorry if you all went home and started googling coconut oil and got confused. Hope to see everyone next month!

    So excited to meet everyone tonight! If you are new to Marty's please note that the store does close at 7pm. If you would like to shop for local produce or organic healthy snacks, please try to arrive a few minutes early to do so, as they like to close the registers down a little before 7. Looking forward to our get together!

    I need to bring my grandson, he is 3. We will try to be quiet but may need to make a fast exit.

    Hey everybody! So excited to see all these RSVPs for next Thursday. Is there anything in particular you would be interested in focusing on during the discussion? We talked about cleansing foods last time. This time I was thinking of talking about different ways to actually cleanse. I have also been inspired recently to talk about different fad diets or philosophies, and thought that might be of more interest. Especially if people have a way of eating that they have found works great for them. We can talk a little about why that is so, and maybe why it would or wouldn't work for other people. Any thoughts?
