Celebrating Independence in July!

4thofJulyNicecream

Happy Independence Day week! Talkin’ about food freedom, friends! Freedom to choose what we know is delicious AND nutritious!

Wednesday July 5th from 6-8 pm, Plant Powered for Health meeting, the theme is summer picnic style foods and things to grill, if you are up for the challenge 🙂   What is important to you for meals in the summer?

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!
