A healthy lifestyle assessment and presentation is the special feature at the upcoming Vegetarian Supper Club event.

“In addition to great food, this month’s special feature is a health presentation entitled, How Healthy Is Your Lifestyle,” says Cameron Johnston, the co-director of Adventist Health Williams Lake.

He says everyone is welcome to come and enjoy a vegetarian potluck meal, make new friends and have fun learning positive lifestyle skills at the dinner scheduled for Sunday, Jan. 22 at 6 p.m. in the Cariboo Lifestyle Centre at 26 Woodland Rd.

More than 20 people attended the first vegetarian supper club back in November and the expectation is that it will grow each month.

“Do you know which health practices are keys to long life?” Johnston asks. “Would you like help to increase your prospects for a long life?  Could you use some practical ideas to lower your risks for disease?  This session features a simple lifestyle assessment that along with the presentation will be very helpful for individuals to determine just how they are doing with their lifestyle and health.”

The Vegetarian Supper Club is an open group for anyone in the community who is interested in healthy eating.

The plan is simple.  Bring a dish for a potluck supper and copies of your recipe to share with all participants and enjoy the food, fellowship and learning from each other. Information on types of dishes to bring is available on line at www.silverhillsontheroad.com/supperclub.

“Come if you would like to taste some delicious natural food and exchange and explore new recipes,” Johnston says.

“The growing interest in natural, whole foods nutrition makes this monthly event a great way for individuals and families to taste and explore a variety of new foods in a pleasant and unthreatening environment.”

This monthly supper club is sponsored by Adventist Health Williams Lake and VOAR Radio. A donation is  requested to help cover some expenses.

Registration is required. For more info or to register call 250-398-9188 or e-mail adventisthealthwl@gmail.com  “This supper club is not only for long-time vegetarians,” Johnston adds.

“Everyone can enjoy this fun learning experience whether you have only a beginning interest in eating natural whole foods or have been pursuing this kind of diet for a while.”
