• Vegan Nutrition Workshop
    • What we'll do Join Vegan University instructor Dave, who is certified in Plant Based Nutrition from Cornell University, and learn vegan nutrition 101! He will cover different nutrients and what foods they're found in. There will be free recipes and ideas to build your plate available! Please bring your questions, a writing utensil and paper so you can take notes. Science has shown that well planned vegan diets are healthy for everyone. Scientific studies have also shown that strict vegan diets can prevent and often reverse heart disease, type 2 diabetes, various auto-immune disorders and cancer. Dave will help you sort through the confusing and often conflicting nutrition advice in the media so you make better diet choices as you move forward on your plant based journey. • What to bring Writing utensil and paper to take notes. • Important to know

  • How to Handle the Holidays as a Vegan
    The holidays can be some of the toughest times for vegans, when balancing relationships with family and friends and our own beliefs. This discussion will address issues like attending non-vegan holidays, entertaining family members, boycotting holidays altogether, and more. This is an opportunity for us to share our experiences, and give advice to one another in this often challenging time. This event can also be helpful for those who may not be vegan, but who have vegan family members and would like to understand how they can be supportive! Vegan snacks will be provided, but feel free to bring something to contribute :)

  • Help! I'm going Vegan!
    You know you want to go vegan, but you have all these questions. Wouldn't it be nice if you could just ask them all in one sitting and have knowledgeable and caring vegans give straight-forward answers? Yes? Well you're in luck! Matt Johnson, a long time ARC volunteer, is visiting from the Northwest and is ready to answer your questions! Nutrition, ethics, environment, how to gently explain to Grandma that her banana bread isn't vegan ... and how to teach her to make it vegan! These workshops are fun, laid back and informative.
