Saturday, July 21 (2 p.m. at Central DPL, free): Dr. Joel Fuhrman, family physician, nutritional researcher, and author of Eat to Live will be speaking about ways to better our health, and recharge/strengthen our bodies. He advises that most if not all of our calories should come from plant foods. (I would still like to lop off the top part of his food pyramid, but it’s still far more healthful and compassionate than the USDA pyramid.) Be sure to register for this! This is in the Level B2 Conference Center of the Central Denver Public Library (10 W. Fourteenth Ave. Pkwy.)
Thursday, July 26 (6:30 pm, suggested donation $5): “Urban Edibles Walk” at the delightful Mercury Cafe (2199 California Street) with Boulder herbalist/author/raw food chef Brigitte Mars followed by a screening of the documentary Forks Over Knives. Here’s a link to the film trailer, in case you can’t see the embedded video below.
The $20 ticket (buy them here) goes toward Maxfund and gets you cheap drinks at 15 bars. Barnivore will tell you which boozes are vegan. FYI, no non-human-adult critters at this event (children, dogs, hedgehogs, pot bellied pigs, etc.)
