I'm posting early this week. It's going to be a busy one! I'm leaving early tomorrow morning for Washington DC, for the much anticipated PCRM Food For Life training. If you're unfamiliar with PCRM, they are the Physician's Committee for Responsible Medicine, and they are all about prevention and reversal of disease through plant based diet. The program I'll be attending is designed for nurses, dietitians, and other health care professionals, but somehow I got in too! There was a pretty extensive interview process, and only 60 people were chosen this year. It's not an on-going thing that can just be signed up for. I'm really rather proud of myself.
This is exactly what I want to be doing in this part of my life - helping people who care about their health change their diets in simple, fun, tasty ways. I hope to soon be teaching lots of cooking classes here in Portland, as well as up and down the west coast. I'll talk more about it after I get back, but if you might be interested, drop me an email. I do a lot of traveling from Seattle to the Bay Area and would love to work in some teaching gigs along the way.
So wish me luck and happy travels! I'm going to navigate DC all by myself, which makes me only a little bit nervous. Mostly I'm excited to jump into this big adventure! See you next week with a full report.
And by the way, Portland remains amazing. xoxoxo
