Summer is slowly giving way to Fall, and we have lots to look forward to!
Wednesday, September 11th at 6:30 pm, there will be a free screening of "Forks Over Knives" at La Mariposa Resort and Health Club on Houghton. This is to kick off their 6-week Vegan Challenge! We will meet Wednesdays at 6:30 pm - 8 pm, starting September 18th, and for the following 6 Wednesdays, ending October 30th. Each meeting will have a delicious, whole food, plant-based dinner. We will have gourmet vegan pizza with roasted veggies for the first dinner. Participation in this challenge is FREE to members of La Mariposa, and only $25 for non-members! There will be a fee for each dinner, still TBD - but probably $15. And La Mariposa will be giving prizes to those who complete the challenge! I am very excited because this is going to be a lot of fun. I will be teaching and demonstrating some recipes a couple of the weeks, but it turns out that La Mariposa has a number of long-time vegans on staff and as members, and they will also share their stories and offer support. So, if you (bring a friend or loved one!) would like to participate, please contact La Mariposa at 520-749-1099.
Saturday, September 21st at the Fox Theatre will be "Your Planet, Your Health" sponsored by Healthy You Network, from 9 am to 5 pm.

We joined the Saturday Loft Farmers Market this past Saturday. What a nice market! We shall be there every Saturday 8 am - noon. Come see us on Speedway!
