This group seeks to bring together those interested in or currently living a compassionate vegan lifestyle for enjoyment and activities. Being Vegan is a journey in life and no two people travel it the same. So why not join and get to know a great group of people who are walking the same path. Northwest VEG generously pays for the meetup group fees, so you don't have to so be sure to support them as well! We also have a family group, Viva la Vegan - Family: http://vegan.meetup.com/492/
Expand your repertoire of plant-based protein foods! “Food in Depth” is a series of cooking demonstrations utilizing grains and legumes that are not yet in wide use.

Pre-registration is required. https://events.r20.constantcontact.com/register/eventReg?oeidk=a07eg96levc223c2c70&oseq=&c=&ch=
Each month we host a potluck, followed by an educational presentation or cooking demonstration. Our potlucks explore delicious food and enable you to meet others within the community. Please bring your favorite vegan dish to serve 8 or more, a copy of the ingredients or recipe, your own eating plates & utensils and come enjoy great food, vegan cooking tips, and fellowship.
This month’s presentation is:
Evidence for Treating Heart Disease with Diet
By Daniel Chong, ND
Join us for food and friends at our monthly Portland potluck and then hear a presentation by Daniel Chong, ND on Dietary Treatment of Cardiovascular Disease: What is the Evidence? Dr. Chong will delve into why it is appropriate to consider dietary therapy as a primary tool in the prevention, and even the treatment of cardiovascular disease, and why the current conventional approach to this disease is not always sufficient on its own.
Dr. Chong is a licensed naturopathic physician, practicing in Portland, OR since 2000, where he focuses on healthy aging of the brain and body, as well as risk assessment, prevention and drug-free treatment strategies for cardiovascular disease and diabetes.
