I wrote to master gardener Jyl Burgener that I was thinking that January would be a great time for a talk on the basics and getting started on home vegetable gardening because it would give people time to plan and get started early for the upcoming spring season. Besides being a master gardener, Jyl is also a volunteer at the community garden, teaches a class in whole food plant-based nutrition and how to grow and preserve some of your own food.
The kitchen includes plates and utensils.
#1 Don't sweat it--this is supposed to be fun. Be open to trying something new! While Dr. Fuhrman's plan does allow for a reduced amount of animal products, for the potlucks I think it's best to make it vegan, as those who are working with health challenges will usually be on a vegan version of the plan. Please include an ingredient card with the dish you bring.
This is an opportunity to practice with and make recipes you might not ordinarily. Almost all of Dr. Fuhrman's books have recipes. This also looks like a great resource for recipes, https://hellonutritarian.com.
The Member Center (https://www.drfuhrman.com/membership) is an awesome resource for cooking, which includes recipes from his books and various conferences that have ratings and comments from other members who have prepared the dishes, plus much more.
Please go ahead and RSVP if you think you may attend. It helps me in planning and you can always change your RSVP later if need be.
