Living and Cooking Vegan in a Meat-Eaters’ World
Known to many of you for her cooking workshops, Linda Every vegan can tell you stories about negative attitudes and hostile dynamics coming from meat-eaters, sometimes even friends and family members. For our 22 Day Veg Challenge Kickoff Event, Linda Tyler , vegan writer and cooking workshop leader, will dig into this phenomenon in depth, sharing research studies that shed light on why this happens and what you can do when it happens. Linda will also offer research-backed approaches for cooking vegan dishes for meat-eaters. Using a few basic principles and taking time to carefully choose dishes and meal menus can mean the difference between acceptance and rejection from your target meat-eater. It’s not just tofu that turns people off. The second half of the session will be a cooking demo. Linda will share two core recipes (Creamy Tomato Sauce and Montreal Roasted Vegetables) and show ways they can be combined with a number of different supporting foods to make at least a dozen fabulous vegan meals.
JOIN US! 2:30-5:00 pm at Cascadia Commons Common House, 4377 SW 94th Ave, Portland, OR 97225.
Event is free but please reserve your space here.

It's that time of year again! The Tofurky Trot is 5k (3.1 miles) and is a run, trot, or walk open to all levels of physical fitness. It’s a great day to enjoy the company of fellow plant eaters and highlight the benefits of plant-based diets on this largely carnivorous holiday. The money raised from the Trot goes to support Northwest VEG, Wildwood Farm Sanctuary, Out to Pasture Sanctuary, Lighthouse Farm Sanctuary, Sanctuary One, and Green Acres Farm Sanctuary. The Trot has tasty prizes for the top fundraisers and the top Trotters, and all registered Trotters get a free bag! Friendly dogs are welcome! Where to meet: The Historic Dance Pavilion at Oaks Amusement Park, 7805 SE Oaks Park Way Portland, OR 97202 Photo of turkeys Pete and Big Boy taken by Beth Redwood at Wildwood Farm Sanctuary (c) bethlilyredwood.com.
