UPCOMING VEGETARIAN/VEGAN  EVENTS
NEXT NCVS EVENT IN JANUARY 11, 2015

NCVS Directions to NCVS Meeting at 145 Bridge St., Suffield.

January 11, Sunday, 4:30 PM  Northern Connecticut Vegetarians will have their Potluck.  The featured presenter is Maribeth Abrams, Nutritional Consultant, Certified Holistic Health Practitioner,  Certified Lifestyle Educator, Certified Plant-Based Nutritionist, and author of 2 cookbooks and numerous magazine articles.  Her program will be “I’M VEGAN (OR VEGETARIAN) SO WHY CAN’T I LOSE WEIGHT!”  Why is it that cutting out meat and other animal products is not enough to get our weight to a healthy place?  Why do we still sometimes have cholesterol issues?  Why do we still get cravings for sugar and white flour and chips even though we eat healthy the rest of the time?  Enjoy an eye-opening presentation on why these problems may occur, and more importantly, find out what to do about it for a healthier, more fulfilling life.  Everyone is invited.  For the Potluck, bring a healthy vegan dish to share along with a list of its ingredients and your recipe.  Vegan food has no animal ingredients (zero  honey, dairy, eggs, meat, and fish).  Please bring your place setting (plate, cup, and utensils).  The Suffield Senior Center, 145 Bridge Street, Suffield, CT,  is the location for this event.   Donation of $8  is requested.  Children are free.  For more information or reservations,  telephone Harry at (860) 623-8082 or email Harry at veggyharry@aol.com.
