Press Release: Healthy Veg kickoff meeting

Healthy Veg kickoff meeting

American Canyon, CA – March 31, 2015 – The kickoff meeting of the Healthy Veg Discussion and Support Group will be Thursday, April 9, 2015 from 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm at the American Canyon Library’s Community Room at 300 Crawford Way. There is no charge and the public is welcome.

Healthy Veg is a project sponsored by Bay Area Vegetarians to offer support to those that want to transition to a healthy vegetarian diet, and for those vegetarians that want to eat healthier. This group will be educational, offer suggestions and share experiences on food choices, how to handle social and work situations, and share recipes.
The Standard American Diet (SAD) based on meat, dairy, processed foods and soft drinks is the major cause of our health problems of overweight and obesity, heart disease and many cancers. A healthy plant-strong diet is a better choice than the SAD, and in most cases can reduce or even reverse and heal the health problems associated with the SAD.

Lewis Withrow, the Healthy Veg group facilitator, started researching nutrition in 2001 when, after many years of the wrong diet, he became quite overweight. Today he is 65 pounds lighter and has no trouble maintaining weight, eating all the proper foods that he wants. Lew lives by the axioms “Know your food, where it comes from and what is in it” and “You are what you eat.”
