22 Day Veg Challenge Closing Celebration! Cooking Demo and Panel Discussion

  • Fred Meyer 20th Place Workshop 100 Northwest 20th Place Portland, OR, 97209 United States (map)

Come celebrate your participation in the 22 Day Veg Challenge and let us know how things went!

We will hear from a panel of speakers: Stephanie Feldstein from the Center for Biological Diversity will talk about the environmental impacts of eating meat, Daniel Redwood, DC, Director of the online Master of Science in Human Nutrition and Functional Medicine program at the University of Western States will speak about the nutritional aspects of a vegan lifestyle, Cameron Whitten, Lead Advocate of the social justice nonprofit group Brown Hope and organizer of Blackstreet Bakery will talk about the intersections of animal justice and racial justice, and John Collins will share heartwarming stories about rescued farm animals at Out to Pasture Sanctuary.

After the panel discussion, we will have a Vegan for the Holidays cooking demonstration by Kris Eisenman. Kris is a Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine Food For Life Instructor and a professionally trained chef. She will demonstrate and share plant-based recipes for No Chicken pot pie and squash purée. For dessert we will have a TBA pie. Her delicious Holiday Veggie Wellington recipe can be found on YouTube and will give you an idea of how extravagant and delicious vegan holidays can be. Kris will also discuss ways of keeping the extravagant holiday eating to just the holidays.  If you have a favorite holiday dish that you just don't know how to veganize, bring the recipe and join us for the Q&A to leave with lots of great ideas.

We will have great door prizes for attendees!
