Whether you're an experienced Nutritarian, or completely new to the concept, we welcome you to join us!  Dr. Joel Fuhrman coined the word "Nutritarian".  This word describes his recommended diet, which bases food choices on maximizing the micronutrients per calorie.  

If you're new to this way of eating, please follow this link to learn more about Dr. Fuhrman's Nutritarian diet:

We have potlucks at members' homes, and also at Kailash Ecovillage.  It is such a pleasure to gather with friends for a meal where every dish is truly health-promoting, and everyone is cheering you on towards your health goals.  We discuss the details of the food we brought to the potluck, share recipes, and go around the room each time to share our personal stories, discoveries, and challenges. 

Everyone is invited to bring dishes which contain nutrient dense whole foods with no added oil, sugar, or salt.  For our potlucks, we will also follow the guidelines of our sponsor, NW VEG, by bringing 100% plant-based dishes (no animal products, including honey).    The Nutritarian diet ideally includes G-BOMBS every day (Greens, Beans, Onions, Mushrooms, Berries, and Seeds), so dishes containing any of those ingredients are especially appreciated.

Sometimes we carpool or get together at other events, which have included NW Veg potlucks, and lectures by speakers such as Dr. Michael Greger and Dr. Alan Goldhamer at Adventist Medical Center.

We have occasionally had demonstrations or hands-on experiences with kitchen tools, and like to share ways to make food prep easier and more efficient.

We enjoy discussing the ideas of a variety of experts in whole-foods plant-based nutrition.  Here are links to some of them:

Portland Nutritarian Meetup was founded by Rachel Rigg in June 2014.   The name was changed to Portland Plant-Based Nutritarians in October 2016 to more clearly reflect the focus of the group.
