What we're about

This group is an extension of a larger ChicagoVeg Community: https://www.meetup.com/ChicagoVeg which has a wider variety of events.

ChicagoVeg Cooking is all about tasty plant-based food, sharing knowledge and cooking experiences between members, educating each other about the many benefits of veg*n cooking and how to make it fun, and of course about making new like-minded friends!

While we have a broad scope including Vegetarian, Vegan Cooked, and Raw/Living Vegan Food, we will mostly focus on a general whole food vegan diet as the source of tasty food and a healthy lifestyle. It has been shown by numerous research studies** that an appropriately planned vegan diet may prevent and reverse such devastating health problems such as Heart Disease, Cancer, and Diabetes, to name a few. What else can we wish from our food if not a combination of being tasty, healthy, and fun?!

We welcome everyone who is interested in tasty and healthy plant-based cooking to join us!
