The SW Florida Healthy Eating Group offers amazing monthly demonstrations for Pod Members organized by Group Leader Amy. December’s meeting focused on showing participants how to make their own spring rolls!

November’s taught attendees how to plant and grow their own microgreens at home in only a week! 

And in October, Pod Members got to sample different flavors of balsamic vinegar, which can be used for marinades, salad dressings, and stir fry’s. These demonstrations introduce Pod Members to creative ways they can incorporate living plant-based into their lives.

Pure Sprouts Pod Participates in Restaurant Campaign

More than ten people joined the Pure Sprouts Pod in Athens, GA, on June 30, 2018, at Cali N Titos for an oil-free meal in an attempt to encourage the restaurant to participate in the Restaurant Campaign. About half of the attendees were newcomers – friends of the Pod Members. One person was especially surprised by how good the restaurant food tasted without oil, saying “While I generally eat oil-free [at home], I don’t always order this food when I go out to eat. After trying it today, it’s actually really good, and I would definitely get it again.”

The Pod’s Group Leader, Josh Wayne shared that he enjoyed “explaining to the waitstaff why we think this is so important to us, to spread oil-free options around Athens GA. Not all people who attended knew exactly what the WFPB diet was, so I took the time to explain to them why we eat this way, and about the health benefits. For me, it seems like the perfect mixture of public health and social work.”
