Portland Potluck and Talk: Food, Planetary Health & the Ideal Diet

  • WHUUF 8470 Southwest Oleson Road Portland, OR, 97223 United States (map)

On the day before Earth Day, join us for food and friends at our monthly Portland potluck, and then hear Dr. Russell Marz talk on Food, Sustainability, Planetary Health & the Ideal Diet. We’ll hear about the effects that our food choices have on our water, air and land resources, and how the environment impacts our own health. The discussion will outline the optimal diet, including the “Blue Zones”, calorie restriction, and the top foods in the world to eat for health and longevity.
