Join a Meetup to socialize with others, in your area who eat a whole food, plant based diet.
There are a few ways to find people in your area.
Today I will discuss Meetups.
Meetup is an online social networking portal which allows members to find and join groups unified by a common interest, including whole food, plant based lifestyles.
Simply go to https://www.meetup.com/ and enter your city or zip code. Then, tag a topic like Vegan, Eat to Live, The principles of a plant based diet, Dr. Esselstyn no oil, Plant Based Nutrition, Dr. Fuhrman, Whole Food Nutrition, Vegan Potlucks and Dineouts, Forks Over Knives, Whole Food Plant Based Diet, etc.
The website/app helps you to locate a group to arrange a place and time to meet.
The service is free of charge to individuals who log in as members.
If there is not a Meetup in your area, consider creating one.
It currently costs $9.99/month for their basic plan, which includes a maximum of 4 organizers and maximum of 50 members. Try it for a month or two and see how it goes.
If you need advice on organizing a group, I would love to help you.
Socializing while maintaining this lifestyle can sometimes be a challenge.Meeting with other, like minded people, can really give you a boost.
For another way to find others incorporating this lifestyle, check out my post about Pods.
Do you belong to any groups who engage in the whole food, plant based lifestyle?
If so, how did you find them? In what activity do you enjoy participating?
Be Strong, Be Well, and Be Green!
