The topic was "overcoming barriers & stages of lifestyle change," and we discussed various barriers or challenges that people face when adopting a WFPB diet, as well as cognitive distortions or "stories" that people tell themselves that undermine success. The food topic of the day was "less than 5 ingredients," and the host Kelly demonstrated a green smoothie (4 ingredients) and sweet potato/banana pudding (3 ingredients) and also brought mashed potatoes (1 ingredient: potatoes!!) and gravy (4 ingredients) as well as the famous b"RAW"nies (recipe by Chef AJ). Participants brought their "less than 5 ingredients" dishes, including bean soup, hummus with vegetables, salad, and apple crisp! As always, it was a gathering of lively discussions and lots of great food!
