Speaking at CCL

I was invited to speak at the Center for Creative Leadership last Friday along with Sharon about "Eating to Lose Weight". Sharon holds a PhD in nutrition and presented the science behind a vegan diet. She has an impressive presentation filled with the latest nutrition research - stuff that really makes you happy you are eating a vegan diet. And she throws in fun stuff too, like:

After she wowed the crowd with her amazing expertise I spoke about my experience losing weight by eating a vegan diet. Not the Cheetos Oreos vegan (those are technically vegan) but the healthy vegan diet. After our presentations we had a tasting table filled with wonderful healthy food. I brought Snow Day Chili, Grapefruit and Avocado Salad, and green smoothies of course!

Grapefruit Avocado Salad
  • 1 T Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/2 t fresh ground pepper
  • 2 T dried cranberries
  • 4 small avocados - peeled, sliced, and pitted
  • 3 large pink grapefruits - peeled and sliced - make sure all white pith is removed

Mix mustard, lemon juice and pepper until blended. Toss with avocados and grapefruit.

Grapefruit season is just getting going and this salad is refreshing and pretty to look at!
