Farms2Forks Engine 2 Forks Over Knives Event!

by on March 5, 2013


Hey everyone!

I’m going to be attending the Farms2Forks event in LA April 12-14 this year (not as a presenter) but I’m very excited. Why? Because live events are awesome. You get to fully immerse yourself with great information, great food and meet so many inspiring people to get you jazzed up about a low fat vegan and plant based lifestyle.

Last year I attended one of Dr. McDougall’s 3 Day Advanced Study Weekends and it was such a positive experience for me I want to try to attend more of these types of events.

This year it’s Farms 2 Forks because I have yet to meet the Esselstyn’s and Jeff Novick who are offering great lectures I haven’t attended before. I also get to listen to Dr. Matthew Lederman (featured in Forks Over Knives) and Dr. Doug Lisle (author of The Pleasure Trap) who I’ve previously met and were a pleasure to learn from as well.

It’s wonderful to get all these plant based experts and doctors in one place because they have so much knowledge and experience we can learn from.

Dates:

Los Angeles, CA April 12-14 – Farms 2 Forks

Chicago, IL May 24-26 – Farms 2 Forks

Atlanta, GA June 28-30 Farms 2 Forks

Claverack, NY Aug 17-18 – Plant Stock @ Esselstyn Family Farm

Full details HERE

These events will cover breakfast, lunch and dinner throughout the weekend, and provide plenty of refreshments and snacks during the breaks.

You’ll hear important information from Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn (author of Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease), Dr. Matthew Lederman, (featured in Forks Over Knives), Rip Esselstyn (author of the The Engine2 Diet), Jeff Novick, RD. (featured on Vegsource.com and in the McDougall Program) and Doug Lisle (author of The Pleasure Trap).

You’ll also learn tips on shopping and preparing healthy meals at home and have a wide variety of oil free low fat plant based meals to choose from at each meal. (Endless delicious healthy food? Who DOESN’T love that?)

So if you’re looking for a way to immerse yourself in a healthier diet and get an insider look at the “how’s” and “why’s” of a plant strong diet this is the perfect opportunity for you.

And who knows you may even see me at the LA event and get to meet me and say hi in person!

Hi, I was wondering if there is any way insurance pays for this program or if there is some kind of reduced rate for people with a disease. My son has Multiple Sclerosis and he has recently started a plant based only diet. He wants to be pro active with his disease but there is no way he can afford the fee for thhis program. Any suggestions would be appreciated
Thank you.

Hi Nan,

Not that I know of… I paid full price myself. I have heard great things about a plant based diet helping MS. I would try contacting the Engine2 team just to ask anyway. info@engine2.com

Nan, I know of three different lifestyle center that may or maynot help treat MS. They definitely will educate on how to live a plant based lifestyle and natural treatments. One of them I know accepts insurance. http://Www.newstart.com is the one that accepts insurance. You might ask for Tom. The other two are wow.uchiepines.org, and http://www.wildwoodhealth.org/lifestyle/
Hope that helps and hope that at least one of them will be beneficial in helping treat your son for MS.
