Plant Powered for Health Potluck and Meeting Wednesday 3/1, 6-8 pm!

With March approaching, we feel the promise of spring coming and excitement with the freshness that sprouts from the warmer weather! What's your favorite spring time healthy treat?
Share with us as we are inspired by spring, St. Patrick's day and March is National nutrition month. (Shouldn't it be EVERY MONTH?!) The whole grains council grain of the month is Quinoa. Inspiration abounds!

We'll share recipes, Sheri will host a food demonstration, new books available (and discussion of our new book club!), and our current raffle is for a signed PlantPure Nation cookbook!  

Most importantly, we'll support for each other as we strive toward good health! Join us!

Potluck starts at 6 pm, meeting at 6:30pm.  

Please come at 6 pm whether you have a dish or not. This is a time to mingle and connect. So remember, bringing food is optional, but your participation is the most important part! Everyone is welcome, whether you are a seasoned PlantPowered eater or just plant curious :) Come and join the discussion!

Can't wait to see you!
Movie Night!!  Free Screening of PlantPure Nation!

Please bring along anyone you love who could benefit from eating more plants!! (Statistically, nearly everyone over the age of 10 in the US has the beginning signs of heart disease-don't wait!)

We've Started a Plant Powered Book Club!

Plant Powered for Health has started a book club to share and discuss selected books! Sharing together on our plant powered journey :)

We had a first time planning session in February, and that group has decided to meet the 3rd Thursday evening monthly. If you would like to host your own and have the groups follow along together, let me know! This location will be limited to about 10 people for space limitations.  We will also discuss a recap during or around the hours of our regular Plant Powered for Health meeting on the first Wed. evening monthly.

What are we reading first?? The newly re-released "The China Study-revised and expanded edition"!! Said to be "the most comprehensive study of nutrition ever conducted, the China Study has sold over 2 million copies and more importantly inspired a revolution in self care through the power of plant based nutrition. This is a foundational book to look at the impact of what we eat on our chronic disease risk.

The plan for March is to read through chapter 2 and discuss. Jot down notes, thoughts and questions and come share them.

Either bring your copy or we will have some available as a fundraiser for our group. The book club is free to attend, so please join us in the fun!
