Farms 2 Forks w Rip Esselstyn May2013

Several members of VegMichigan and many other Michigan residents attended the Engine 2 event in Chicago called Farms 2 Forks. Hosted by Rip Esselstyn, author of “The Engine 2 Diet” and “My Beef With Meat”, the list of speakers were outstanding. They included Dr John McDougall, Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, Jeff Novick, and Dr. Doug Lisle. Ann Esselstyn and Jane Esselstyn each did a session on cooking and healthy choices along with a quick cooking demo from Jeff Novick with some help from Doug Lisle.

The weekend was jam packed with great speakers, wonderful food, and the chance to meet new friends.

Farms 2 Forks are events presented in different cities each year – this year there are 5 being done. They bring together speakers who present information on a “plant-strong” lifestyle and give you tools to make it easier to follow the path of a plant based diet. More information can be found at
