Bring any holiday leftovers to share as we talk and learn! (I will provide plates, napkins, utensils.) 

Notes from November ...

At our November meeting, we discussed ways to substitute ingredients and adapt recipes to make dishes healthy yet tasty. As a follow-up to questions and issues that arose, I am providing the below information.
  1) Environmental Working Group Shopper's Guide to Pesticides in Produce™: Click here to get your PDF of the guide.

  2) Pancake recipes:
  3) Pressure cookers:
  4) Plant-based milk: Below is the link to Lindsay Nixon's blog describing types of non-dairy milks. She outlines what to look for when buying milk products, as well as information about carrageenan & GMO's.
As Lindsay says, find a plant-based milk you like and use it!
