FORKS OVER KNIVES – Toronto Starch Solution Potluck Lunch
September 18, 2016 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pmFree
The Toronto Starch Solution Meetup group will be hosting a potluck lunch based on the principles of Dr. John McDougall’s book The Starch Solution : Eat the Foods You Love, Regain Your Health, and Lose the Weight for Good. This is the same eating plan recommended in the popular documentary Forks Over Knives.
This monthly event takes place on the third Sunday of each month at 1 pm. This month there will be a screening of Forks Over Knives during lunch, with an opportunity for discussion to follow.
This low fat, whole foods, plant based (WFPB) way of eating centres on healthy starches such as whole grains, beans, lentils, peas, potatoes, sweet potatoes, winter squashes, parsnips, pasta, and so on, augmented with green, yellow and orange (non-starchy) veggies, prepared and served without added fat and eaten with a plethora of delicious herbs and spices, fat free condiments and sauces, in quantities that are satisfying. Feeling hungry or deprived is discouraged. No starvation or sacrifice required!
Come on out for a delicious potluck lunch and a chance to make some new friends. For recipe ideas, check Dr. McDougall’s website or fatfreevegankitchen or feel free to bring a plate of cut up vegs or fruit. A copy of your recipe or list of ingredients will be appreciated so that we can all learn together about the food and people with food allergies can feel confident about what they are eating.
A small donation of $1 or $2 would be appreciated to help defray costs.
