Eat Your Veggies

I had fun this afternoon at the Guilford Public Library where I did a presentation called "Eat Your Veggies!"
I began with a little Powerpoint slideshow on the dreaded "Lifestyle Syndrome" and how to manage it by eating a whole foods plant-based diet. The solution? Lots of greens, beans, and berries. Throw in a little spice, too... like turmeric, cayenne and cinnamon, as well as a good dose of garlic and ginger, and you should be hopping around in no time!

The recipes for today were quick and easy -- Curried Chickpea and Quinoa Pilaf and Sauteed Kale with Toasted Pine Nuts. I hope everyone that was there was able to get a sample and enjoyed what they tasted.

Several people who came in for the presentation after mine commented that they smelled the enticing aromas throughout the library and followed their noses to the meeting room. That's always a good sign.

Thank you to all who attended this event!

(and extra special thanks to my two assistants, mom & dad!!)
