      Join us on Saturday, July 14th as we feature the perfect food for the beautiful warm weather we're graced with in the SF Bay Area. As always, we will also be debunking the myths about plant-based eating and providing lots of resources and tips. We feature mostly local, in-season, organic ingredients. (For McDougallers, there is no added fat in any of the savory dishes, though the potato salad does use an oil-based dressing. Lemon Bars include some oil.)

      Join us as we cook up:

      *Falafel Burgers
      *Mushroom Pecan Burgers
      *Classic Caesar Salad
      *Spicy Sweet Potato Salad
      *Lemon Bars with Shortbread Crust

      WHEN: Saturday, July 14th -- 10:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m.
