      Here is the menu for the vegan dinner this Wed. evening, Jan. 23 at 6 pm:

      Green Salad
      Southwestern Bean Dip
      Crudites Assortment
      Tamale Pie
      Salsa-Braised Kale
      Veggie Confetti Spanish Rice
      Pineapple Paradise Cake
      Grape Juice and Herbal Tea Beverages

      This menu tells only part of the story. At the dinner, Patricia explains the special ingredients she uses and the important micronutrients which are found in each dish.

      This is a nutrient-dense dinner, with special emmphasis on nutritional balance and excellence. Prepared by a certified Nutrition Consultant, Patricia Allen Koot, NE, NC, it is designed to help your body cope with the stresses of urban living. Many times people have commented that they have a feeling of well-being after enjoying Patricia's dinners. And it is house-made from scratch, using quality organic non-GMO ingredients. This is not vegan fast food and cheap, bulk ingredients from a restaurant supply are not used.

      The dinner is all you can eat, as long as the food lasts. Be sure to RSVP so Patricia knows how much food to prepare. And bring a container to take some home with you.

      After dinner, stay for a very timely and important lecture on how to grow your own veggies in the middle of the City, using grow boxes or planters, or even plastic bags!

      Master gardener George Gibbs, proprietor of George Gibbs Gardens in San Francisco, will explain how to grow succulent, delicious veggies in your own box garden or planters, right in the heart of downtown. Save big money and know what you are eating!

      Special techniques and know-how are needed because of the local SF weather patterns. Mr. Gibbs has that special know-how. He has over thirty years of experience doing organic gardening here in San Francisco. He is familiar with the microclimates of the various neighborhoods in the City, and what will grow, or not grow, in each neighborhood. There are important differences.

      It is almost February. Now is the time of year to start planning your very own City garden. Imagine feasting on delicious veggies you have grown yourself, bursting with nutrients! You not only save lots of money. You also protect your health. Know what you are eating!

      Build your own permaculture, as you practice sustainable agriculture right here in the City. Help your health, help the environment and help your pocketbook, as you enjoy the fruits of your labor.

      Mr. Gibbs will also talk about the benefits of growing your own veggies, to mental and emotional well-being, and an important aspect of stress control. He has taught stress management for Kaiser Health.

      It all happens this Wed. evening, Jan. 23 at 6 pm, at the Opera Plaza Community Room, 601 Van Ness, San Francisco. Take the elevator to the first floor, then security will key you down to the mezzanine for the event.

      A fifteen dollar requested donation covers the all you can eat vegan dinner and the presentation on city gardening. This is possible because both the Nutritionist and the Master Gardener are donating their time. Funds go toward facility rental, food, transport and other costs.

      RSVP to reserve a place. Call (888) 234-1361 or email to: rsvp@...

      And come back on Wed. Jan. 30 for a lecture and book-signing by acclaimed Bay Area author and activist, Linda Riebel, an acclaimed Bay Area and vegan/green activist. In addition to her popular book, Green Foodprint, she has now, under her pen name Lindsay Crane, authored a thrilling new book entitled, "The Lie-Catcher."

      Linda Riebel, psychologist and environmental educator, has published professional and popular works in addition to The Green Foodprint. As a faculty member at Saybrook University in San Francisco, she co-created the environmental studies program and co-authored two of its course texts. A graduate of Wellesley College, she serves on the boards of Sustainable Lafayette and SaveNature.Org, where she is the program director of Edible EdVentures, which brings the message of earth-friendly eating to classrooms around the San Francisco Bay Area. Linda has received notable recognition for her work as an environmental educator and author. Most recently, she won a 2012 Green Book Festival Award and was a finalist of the 2012 Next Generation Indie Book Awards.

      Her new book, "The Lie-Catcher in the Primate House is a thriller about stopping the smuggling of endangered species. It involves true-life crime, exotic locations, and a unique supporting character. Through the eyes of the heroine (an expert in detecting human deceptiveness) the reader enters the worlds of animal smuggling, academic politics, chimpanzees who have learned to use sign language, and black market procurement of experimental animals for medical laboratories. All the key plot elements of the novel are based on fact: signing chimpanzees, international task forces tackling the smuggling of endangered species, dangers faced by protectors of wildlife, and disgraced medical researchers. Equally genuine is the science of detecting deception, the basis of the heroine's professional expertise. These elements are woven together to tell a story that is at once exciting and serious."

      Dr. Riebel will have copies of both books available for purchase and signing.

      Then on Feb. 6, same time and location, enjoy a blockbuster presentation on a dynamic combo topic. Patty Sherwood and John Sanchez will present 'Holistic Nutrition,' which covers so much more than nutrition. Patty is a credentialed teacher, and John is a certified Eating Coach. Together, they will tell you more than how to have a healthy diet, but how to make it stick, to stay on a healthy diet. John will talk about the psychology of eating, a vitally important topic for success on a diet.

      RSVP for each of these events to: (888) 234-1361 or email to: rsvp@....
