Potluck: "Adopting a Vegan Life as an Older Person"

Govans Presbyterian Church

Hope you are well. Earthsave's mission is to help people learn a healthier and more peaceful way of eating and living. www.EarthsaveBaltimore.org Our veg/vegan dinner series meets on the last Saturday, each month, at Govans Presbyterian Church, next to the historic Senator Theater. Invite your Facebook friends. www.facebook.com/events/[masked]/ We also host two monthly discussion groups that meet in restaurants. You might like to join us Wednesday night, Feb. 20th at 7:00 pm, when the Baltimore Vegan Meetup group gets together for wonderful vegan food and discussion at Mr. Chan Szechuan in Pikesville. Mr. Chan's has a wonderful variety of tasty vegan entrees. Everyone is welcome. Hope to see you there! Saturday, Feb. 23rd (6:00 pm) Barbra Levin will present “Adopting a Vegan Life as an Older Person”. The talk will focus on the challenges of upending decades of nutritional routines. Barbra will offer advice on adjusting on a fixed or reduced income, on how to find reliable information in a non-tech world, and on how to get needed nutrition while not in control. Barbra Levin went vegan at the age of 60. She’s now 65 and proudly embraces the term "old lady" for several reasons. While in her 20s and 30s, she’d considered 65 to be quite old. And, as a public health professional, she’s acutely aware that there are different challenges when you adopt this lifestyle while dealing with other age related issues. Finally, she liked the way it sounded. Barbra's a Harvard educated health professional who devoted nearly 40 years to non-profit healthcare administration to the most vulnerable populations. She’s worked with refugees, immigrants, farm workers, people without permanent shelter, and people with disabilities and incurable disorders. She's also a former Peace Corps volunteer who lived and served in Thailand for several years and learned many of the secrets of Thai cuisine. At “Old Lady Vegan” Barbra peer mentors other older people trying to adopt a vegan eating plan. DINNER GUESTS may choose to either bring a dish made without animal products (to serve 8) plus $5 (members pay just $2) donation; pay $15 (members pay just $12) to enjoy dinner and presentation; or pay $5 for presentation only. We eat first, then make announcements, and then hear the presentation. Let us know in advance, if possible, if you plan to pay for dinner rather than bring a dish. RSVP by calling[masked], or emailing [masked]. Meetings are held at Govans Presbyterian Church, 5828 York Rd, Baltimore, 21212. Church is next to the historic Senator Theater. Drive around church to large parking lot, where you'll see the white Earthsave banner near the Fellowship Hall entry. And on Saturday, March 23rd (6:00 pm) Earthsave’s March dinner event of will feature a presentation by Registered Dietitian Mark Rifkin on "Switching to Vegan - Without Reinventing the Wheel". http://earthsavebaltimore.org/node/27 Hope to see you at an Earthsave event soon! Call[masked] and give us your email address if you would like to receive our monthly email newsletter with event updates. Be well. Peace...

The Baltimore Vegetarian Meetup Group Monthly Meetup

Needs a location

We are a people-friendly group, and welcome all who are interested in learning a healthier and more peaceful way of eating and living. Members and guests are invited to introduce themselves and let us know what led to your interest in diet and lifestyle change... or you may prefer to ask a question, or ask for advice on a challenge you are facing. You might want to share a life experience or success story... or perhaps an idea about how we might better spread the word to others. Our next gathering will take place at a very popular vegetarian restaurant with wonderful Indian cuisine. It's called Mango Grove. See their website at http://www.themangogrove.net. The location is 8865 Stanford Boulevard, in Columbia, Maryland, 21045. Call them at[masked], or email [masked] . We can choose the buffet for $15.95, or order from the menu, which features lots of vegan items that are clearly indicated. Hope you will join us!

Combined Veg/Vegan Meetup @ Mr. Chan

Mr. Chan Szechuan Restaurant

Let’s do a combined veg/vegan Meetup at Mr. Chan in Pikesville, MD. Mr. Chan's food is terrific, and the semi-private room that we use is a great place to connect with friendly, like-minded people. We'll share some success stories... and maybe talk about some things that give us hope for the future, and things we do to help lift our spirits. We might also talk about some ways we can help others tune in to the powerful benefits of a whole foods, plant-based diet. Hope you will join us! If you are not already a member, you might also like to join one or both of the monthly discussion groups that I host - the Baltimore Vegetarian Meetup group http://www.meetup.com/vegetarian-9/ and/or the Baltimore Vegan Meetup group http://tinyurl.com/22lsyt7 There’s also a very helpful discussion and support group on Facebook called Earth Friendly Food Choices.
