Morris County Vegans...Unite!
Learn about vegan, vegetarian, restricted diet, and other healthy eating alternatives at the new Morris County Vegans meetup group, launched by organizer Beth Cofone. Simply go to Meetup.com, search for the Morris County Vegans Meetup group, and ask to join in order to receive information about upcoming activities. Monthly events will include guest lectures, cooking demos, and gatherings at local restaurants including the Loving Hut in Ledgewood and Veggie Heaven in Denville, where members can enjoy vegan dishes, meet other vegans and vegetarians, learn about healthy products, and share best practices.
On June 18, from 2 to 5 p.m., join Cofone at the Health Shoppe in Chester, 207 Route 206, as she hosts a free cooking demonstration (sponsored by Follow Your Heart non-dairy alternatives). Attendees will learn how to prepare such dishes as Loaded Veggie Pasta Salad, Vegan Caesar Salad, a Mexican-themed tortilla, and spinach tofu lasagna. Along with the dishes made during class, a scrumptious vegan dessert will be served and those attending will receive free product giveaways. Meetup group members will also receive a free card entitling them to 10 percent off one purchase each month at the Health Shoppe.
