Kirk will share his “21 – Day Transition to Healthy Eating Program” as well as the “Gorilla Phase” of his diet.  The lecture will also include a quick update on the status of the beautiful, but threatened gorilla, and why their example of consuming mostly fruit and foliage not only creates good health but dispels myths that we need more protein and calcium from animal foods to have adequate muscles and bone health. In honor of our beautiful primate cousins Kirk will make a colorful fruit- nut salad, and a super leafy dish of steamed greens! You will also receive a copy of Kirk’s book “Staying Healthy in the Fast Lane” whose theme is the prevention and reversal of age-related (chronic) diseases, such as diabetes, by the use of a low allergy, anti-inflammatory, unprocessed plant-based diets.
