Event Description

Each 2nd Thursday of the month, members of the San Antonio PlantPure Pod get together to share a meal and to provide one another with information and encouragement for sustaining a whole foods plant-based lifestyle.

5:45 pm Setup, meet & greet, announcements, Potluck dinner at 6:30.

If you've read "The China Study" or watched "Forks Over Knives," you've learned that this way of eating promotes optimal wellness and longevity. Surrounded by meat-eating family members and the convenience of fast and processed foods, it can be challenging to make the transition to a diet that will provide lasting benefits. For those who have adopted this diet and experienced positive changes in their health, there may be a strong desire to spread the word and a feeling of frustration with the food system that is making so many people sick.

The Get Healthy San Antonio group is open to everyone, especially families with children, people just dipping their toes into meatless Mondays as well as dedicated followers of the whole foods plant-based lifestyle. You're invited to bring your questions and concerns as well as your advice and expertise to our supportive community. Our meetings may include film screenings, cooking demonstrations, and lively group discussions.

For our potluck meal, please bring:

• A whole food, plant-based dish (preferably free of added sugar, salt, and oil)

• A copy of your recipe or a list of the ingredients, to allow those with food allergies to eat safely

• Your own drink, reusable/recyclable plate, bowl, and utensils

We look forward to seeing you on the second Thursday of each month!
