What we're about

This group is for those interested in trying or for those already following a whole food, plant based (vegan) diet with no to minimal oil, salt, or refined sugar. We host a monthly potluck, which is a great way to sample delicious, healthy dishes, share recipes, learn, and connect with others who are like-minded in their pursuit of optimal health and well-being. Please bring a dish to serve 8-10 along with a copy of your recipe or ingredients list. Contributions of $2/person are appreciated to cover the cost of meetup fees and supplies. Please feel free to bring along family members, friends, co-workers, neighbors…all are welcome!

Monthly Meetup Potluck!

Ellicott City Seventh-day Adventist Church

****NOTE: We have a new location for our potlucks going forward. From now on, unless otherwise noted, we will be meeting at the Ellicott City Seventh Day Adventist Church, at 3291 N Saint Johns Lane Ellicott City, MD 21042.*** We look forward to another great potluck to share delicious, healthy plant-based food and great conversation! This potluck is a great opportunity to try out new recipes and pick some up to share with your loved ones! Dishes should serve 8-10 and must be entirely plant-based (vegan), so please no red meat, chicken, turkey, fish, seafood, eggs, cheese, butter, cream, yogurt or any other dairy products, or honey or gelatin, in the ingredients. Also please be sure that dishes include no to very minimal amounts of refined sugar, salt, and oil. Please bring along at least one copy of your recipe or an ingredients list to share; include your name on the recipe so others can identify who made each dish. Contributions of $1 per person are greatly appreciated to cover supplies and meetup costs. We will watch a brief DVD presentation if time permits and enjoy group discussion. Please feel free to bring along family members, friends, co-workers, etc.. People at all stages of transitioning to a healthier diet are welcome to join us! Looking forward to seeing you there! If you're unsure about what to bring, please see some of the recipe blogs here: http://eatwell-staywell.com/recipe-blogs/ and http://www.theveganjunction.com/top-30-oil-free-plant-based-recipe-websites-of-2017/. And if you're new to plant-based cooking/eating, just bring some fruit or a salad; there's always plenty of food and you'll get some great ideas for next time! If you have your own reusable utensils and dinnerware, we encourage you to bring them along so as to cut down on the volume of trash. (Some creative folks have taken to bringing along muffin tins, so that they can take small samples without having them mix!) If not, no worries; we'll have you covered. Also, please join our Facebook group to stay in touch and share recipes and tips between meetups: https://www.facebook.com/groups/784866048230971/
