Dr. Fuhrman loves soups because no nutrients are lost in steaming or baking. All that delicious soup stock is chock full of vitamins and minerals and a medley of veggies and greens. Many of Dr. Fuhrman’s soups use vegetable juices as the stock. Not only does that add a ton of nutrients, but makes also for a flavorful dish. Laurie, our Health Starts Here specialist, will be making three of Dr. Fuhrman’s recipes: Black Forest Cream of Mushroom, Tomato Bisque, and Lentil Stew. All dishes are dairy and grain free.

Are you skeptical that eating healthy and nutrient dense means chomping on a carrot and eating tofu? This month’s Health Starts Here dinner club will change all of that. With our 28-day Challenge of Healthy Eating about to begin February 3rd, allow Laurie Atchison and Beverly Dewell to serve you a delicious, Engine 2 and Dr. Fuhrman Nutritarian approved meal. Unlike our classes, this monthly dinner is a wonderful way to dine on a gourmet plant-strong meal, made with organic ingredients wherever possible and served in our classroom turned café. Each month is a different menu but always in keeping with Health Starts Here. This month’s meal: Autumn Salad with walnut dressing, creamy (non-dairy) zucchini soup, eggplant roll-ups with non-dairy, no soy mozzarella, slow simmered collard greens, and, if you so choose, you may add  a seasoned 4 ounce piece of chicken. For dessert, pumpkin oat cakes with apple-pecan compote. You get to choose: vegan or not, but always, plant-strong! Space is limited! Purchase tickets HERE!
