Farms 2 Forks
Friday, May 24th
12:00 AM - 12:00 AM
Hyatt Regency Chicago, IL, www.farms2forks.com

Chicago’s commitment to becoming the healthiest city in America is one of the many reasons we’ve decided to return in 2013. At its most basic, the mission of a Farms 2 Forks Weekend is aligned with that of the Windy City. We want to help as many residents learn more about how a plant-strong diet can dramatically help them progress towards this admirable yet achievable goal, both for themselves and the greater good. In addition to enjoying an inspiring weekend in the heart of downtown Chicago, guests will also glean satisfaction knowing they’re contributing to the better health and well-being of this vibrant city and the Midwest at large. The weekend will feature five delicious, specially-prepared plant-strong Engine 2 Diet meals and extensive practical guidance on how to make similar dishes at home. New for our 2013 season, we are launching our weekend with a Friday night meet-and-greet, a scrumptious E2 dinner and a thought-provoking pair of opening lectures, all so that you can get more education and enjoyment out of your experience—and find more time to connect with fellow participants.
