Vegan This!

Join us March 20 for Vegan This! a monthly plant-based nutrition support group fueled by the Physicians Committee to give you the support you need to thrive on a vegan diet in the DMV area.

Joining us this month is Neal Barnard, M.D., founder and president of Physicians Committee, who will give a special lecture and book signing from his new Dr. Neal Barnard’s Cookbook for Reversing Diabetes. The book draws on decades of scientific research showing the power of plant-based diets for reversing type 2 diabetes. Dreena Burton, best-selling cookbook author and creator of the Plant Powered Kitchen blog, developed the cookbook’s 150 recipes. Books will be available for purchase at the event.

Also joining us is RoRo’s food truck, serving fresh and hearty plant-based Lebanese cuisine with a modern twist! Come hungry and ready to purchase delicious vegan meals like veggie shawarma, rice platters, salads, oven baked chips, hummus, falafel, and za’atar cauliflower.
