What we're about

It's no lie - the Whole Food Plant Based (WFPB) movement is exploding! Restaurants are creating vegan options left and right. Are you interested in following a healthy vegan Whole Food Plant Based diet but don't know where to start and don't have a network of people to support you? Look no further then! Let's get together at vegan joints and chat! Let's support each other in our journey of being healthy, wanting what's best for our planet, and having compassion for animals.

While you should not substitute anything discussed through this Meetup group for medical advice, here are a number of doctors advocating for this type of lifestyle:

Dr. Joel Fuhrman

Dr. Michael Greger

Dr. John A McDougall

Dr. Neal Barnard

Here also a presentation (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kg1d6LGeMr4) by Dr. Anthony Lim and another presentation (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qbpyCC0g2yg) by Registered Dietician Brenda Davis and one of her books Becoming Vegan: Comprehensive Edition: The Complete Reference on Plant-Based Nutrition (https://amzn.to/2N7vqoQ)

Let's NOSH together! An evening @ Nosh Cafe.

This place has members going back in between meetups so we thought we would sneak it in a little more often ;) While the menu is not entirely vegan, Nosh is one of the easiest places to find enough options to leave your tummy very happy and full. The staff and kitchen are more than happy to make adjustments to dishes and provide warm and friendly service. This is one place that you will be bringing home leftovers so plan ahead and bring your own takeout containers and see how green we all can be!!!

Whole Food Plant Based Recipe Swap

The Clever Rabbit

Part of being passionate about whole foods is the joy that we get from sharing our recipes and sharing our knowledge with others of this healthy & delicious way of eating. Let's get together and swap recipes over a delicious supper at Clever Rabbit! Whether it is finding what to cook, or wanting to create some things that will "wow!" our omnivore family members, it will be good to come together and support one another. What I envision is getting into groups, finding out what we like, and suggesting delicious recipes. Open to any other ways of doing it so post it in the comments below if you have a good idea. You may also print off recipes and hand them out to people. Or suggest Youtube channels, cookbooks, or other plant based sites. Either way, I'm sure we will have a blast!

Social Night For WFPB People (Plant Based curious also welcome!)

Do you wish you had more friends that were into the same lifestyle as you? Do you want another opportunity to socialize with the few people you know? I thought I'd make a meetup that isn't about food (as much as we love it!). We could chat, listen to tunes, play games, share ideas, and generally have a good time. This won't be a potluck, although you are welcome to bring a healthy snack to share. This is also not a party with loud music, although it might turn into one if there is interest later. Kids are welcome! Please note I do have one cat in case of any allergies. Event is at a private residence. Address will be released closer to the date at the discretion of the organizer. Come socialize with your plant based community! https://pngtree.com/free-vectors free vectors from pngtree.com
