How to Eat Vegan – What exactly is vegan food? What vegan food have you already been eating? What foods are not vegan? What are meat, dairy and egg substitutes? How do you deal with cravings? What about social pressure?
We’ll prepare some really delicious vegan dishes, including non-dairy cheeses, comfort foods and breakfast dishes for sampling. We’ll also provide recipes to take home. Session 2 – October 14, 2017
Nutrition and the Human Body – What are the healthiest foods to eat? Join Dr. Milton Mills from the film What the Health as he takes a deeper look at the components of a healthy plant-based diet as well as human physiology and why we are natural plant-eaters. There will also be a Q & A session with Dr. Mills. Session 3 – October 21, 2017
Bring a Friend to Watch “What the Health” CHALLENGE!

The Benefits of Vegan Living – How does vegan living address the health challenges our communities are facing? What are the environmental impacts of the current food systems? What is the positive impact of creating a plant-based food system? Session 5 – November 4, 2017
Now What? What will it look like going into the world as a new vegan? We’ll give lots of tips and tricks to navigating a non-vegan world as a brand-new vegan and discuss strategies for sharing what you’ve learned in the last five weeks with your friends, family and community.
