  • PBNM Group - Schaumburg - Eat Your Way to Health

    Wellspring Church / Covenant Church

    MAY MEETING: In honor of Cinco de Mayo, this meeting will honor Hispanic culture, including some amazing peoples who've pushed human limits by following a predominantly plant based diet, among other healthful behaviors. Like all our meetups, this is a VOLUNTARY POTLUCK. But this month we'd love for you to focus on Hispanic cuisine. Bring your favorite plant based, no oil, tacos, fajitas, frijoles, tortillas, buritos, quesadillas, enchilladas...whatever your heart desires! Need recipe ideas??? Check out our suggested recipe sites at https://pbnm.org/resources/recipe-sites/ ______________________________________________ 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.
