      Your sociability, good cheer and friendliness, and a raw vegan dish to
      serve 6 or more.

      You can bring something fancy or simple. A simple offering could be a
      vegetable salad or some fruit. A well-stocked kitchen is on hand so you
      can do last-minute slicing when you arrive. A platter of sliced veggies,
      like tomatoes, cucumbers, bell peppers, radishes, squashes, etc., perhaps
      with some avocados or raw olives, is simple and filling. Nuts and seeds
      are easy and can be soaked for greater digestibility.

      Web Site Refuting Atkins Diet

      Much has been written, both pro and con, about the very popular
      Atkins Diet. The web site below, launched in June of this year,
      refutes much of the purported benefits of this diet, reveals the
      short- and long-term effects of following Atkins, contains an
      extensive list of references and resources, and offers healthier
      alternatives to the diet.

      Many major health organizations and health authorities have gone on
      record stating that following the Atkins Diet is dangerous to one's
      health. For example, the American Dietic Association, as quoted in
      the web site, has been warning Americans about the potential hazards
      of the Atkins Diet for almost 30 years.

      This site is both informative and eye-opening.

      Dr. Michael Greger has lectured extensively on nutrition and food
      issues, such as Mad Cow Disease.
