  • Last month's theme of navigating the holidays was a hit, so we're doing it again!  On Friday December 9th at 6:30 pm!

    Here are photos from last month's Meetup:   https://www.meetup.com/Baltimore-Nutrition-As-Medicine-Potluck/photos/27438733/

    The videos were a hit with a lot of great advice & information about eating while traveling, and surviving the holidays!   We'll have some new ones for you. 

    The monthly Baltimore-Nutrition-As-Medicine-Potluck is a place to share a meal with others interested in moving toward a healthy plant-based diet, to learn food preparation tips, to taste new recipes, and to get support, information & inspiration.

    There is always a short video, discussion, and FOOD!

    Free of charge, and we raffle off a great kitchen item each meeting just for fun.

    It all happens on the 2nd Friday of every month at 6:30 pm at the same location: The Park Heights Community Health Alliance at 4151 Park Heights Ave, Baltimore, MD 21215.

    Everyone at all stages of their journey should attend, especially those who are new to this.

    Please bring a dish to share if you can, which must be vegan (no dairy, egg, fish, or meat of any kind) and not too much, if any, SOS (salt, oil, sugar). If no time to cook, you can just bring some fruit, etc. If you are not able to bring food for any reason, that's OK, just bring yourself (and friends).

    You can find recipes at www.NutritionAsMedicine.org, www.healthygirlskitchen.com, www.straightupfood.com, www.forksoverknives.com/recipes, to name a few.

    If you are bringing a dish, PLEASE bring a piece of paper with your name, the name of the dish AND INGREDIENTS (or, better yet, the recipe). Including your name and the name of the dish is nice too.

    We promote a whole-food plant-based diet without too much (if any) salt, sugar or oil. This kind of eating can lead to dramatic health benefits such as weight loss, preventing or reversing heart disease, diabetes, hypertension, and many cancers. There is evidence that it may prevent or reverse some auto-immune disease, alzheimer’s disease, and others.

    The big secret is that healthy, sustainable food is *absolutely delicious* and *completely satisfying.* Once you have made the transition and have learned a few basic principles and recipes, you will start seeing results.  You will never want to go back.

    Your four organizers, Joe, Vlad, Emily and Jamila, will be on hand to help and advise you during and after this meeting. One of us is an M.D., one is an R.D. (Registered Dietician), and the rest are experienced amateur chefs and diet coaches. We are all passionate about helping others discover the wide world of whole foods and their profound benefits.

    If anyone has questions or wants to chat, please call Joe Adams M.D. at[masked] if you're not sure this is right for you, or if you're looking for a little help on how to break out of whatever barriers you might be facing.

    Please ask about our buddy system where we can put you in touch with others for extra support and staying on track.

    Enjoy the journey, share challenges or successes with others, and discover new foods often.

    We are looking forward to seeing you!

    - Joe, Vlad, Emily and Jamila, the Nutrition As Medicine team.

    "Part Deaux": Do you mean "deux" (two) or "d'eaux" (of water")??
