Raw Foods Dinner at the Heartwood

The Halifax Association of Vegetarians is hosting a raw foods dinner at the Heartwood on Tuesday, October 16, at 6 pm. AndrĂ©a Lessing, will speak about her visit to the Vegetarian Food Festival, which is held each year by the Toronto Vegetarian Association.
This is an excellent opportunity to be introduced to the raw food diet, which is growing in popularity across Canada.

The dinner special will be a raw foods salad/dip platter. It will consist of a spinach/lettuce salad with nuts, veggies, local sprouts and a lemon tahini dressing. Along with the salad we will serve a fresh basil guacamole and a seed/nut pate. Specially made flat breads will be served along with the dips. For dessert we will have a raw foods nut/dried fruit ball with coconut.

The cost of the dinner will be $16, plus the cost of beverages, tax and gratuity. HAV members can use their membership cards for a 10% discount on this dinner, and for future visits to the Heartwood.
