March events and what’s new in April?

March has been spectacular! 

Our March Plant Powered for Health meeting was delightful!  We had a focus on PlantPure Nation easy to make/and ready made meals as well as a fabulous guest speaker, Naila Kovacevic!

IMG_5440.JPGNaila is a medical student at MSU, and shared her journey to plant based nutrition.  She also shared her experience with PBNSG’s efforts to make changes to medical school curriculum and her hope to bring these changes to MSU’s GR campus.  As a group, we hope to support these efforts, and welcome medical student to come attend our meetings!

Esselstyn field trip March 2016

The field trip to see Dr. Caldwell and Ann Esselstyn was outstanding!  Dr. Esselstyn (Essy) told us all about the science of plant based nutrition, and Ann gave us the practical “how to” tips!  PBNSG had a “plank off” as a fundraiser, and it was very impressive how long the contestants were able to hold the pose! One of the many programs PBNSG runs includes taking their speakers to the medical schools.  Essy visited Wayne State University and spoke to the students!  IMG_5479

Our monthly visit to Sue and Roger’s home for Supper Club was delicious and fun as always!

I also went to the West Michigan Growers Fare and learned about many local community CSAs!  Check out their facebook page, and see if there is a CSA that is right for you!
