What we're about

Organized in 2018 by cardiologist, Dr Steven Lome, our focus is on the power of plant-based nutrition to help people live their best, healthiest lives, fighting the current epidemic of chronic disease. This group aims to afford people with a wide range of activities to learn and to support one another on their plant-based journey. Our activities include local group meetings, community education events, plant-based cooking classes, screening documentaries, host guest speakers, organize "jump starts", etc.

PBNM Group - Schaumburg - CANCELLED until further notice

Wellspring Church / Covenant Church

Food. Much of our life revolves around it. But for most of us, the real power of food, to either improve our health or to sabotage it, simply is not something we've been taught. Oh, sure, tv ads have caused us to believe certain things about certain foods, but is what the advertisers tell us really true? We're on a journey to learn all we can about food, about health, about what we can do to help ourselves live healthier longer, and we invite you to come along! We'll share what we've learned, and we encourage you to do the same. But we like to have FUN, too! So this isn't just about learning about food...it's about CONNECTING with other people who also want to learn, to share, to just "hang out" and enjoy the company of nice folks and some good food. What will you find at each meeting? • Brief video about the current meeting’s topic • Helpful presentation and discussion to encourage healthy eating for you and your family • Plenty of tasty, HEALTHY food to eat • Question and Answer period The purpose of all of our PBNM Groups is to support efforts towards good health by preventing and reversing chronic diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, hypertension and cancer by eating more plant based foods. We support and welcome all individuals no matter what their current dietary preferences. PBNM Groups will allow you to experience first hand how wonderful plant based foods can taste while learning many health topics and connecting with other people working toward improving their health. For more information, visit PBNM.org We'll meet monthly in Schaumburg, the 1st Wednesday of every month from 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm. Mark your calendars. We hope you'll join us!!!
