Thursday, March 23 and Sunday, March 26 at 7pm. Online and in-person.

The UU Plant-Based Eating Club is hosting a group read of The Engine 2 Seven-Day Rescue Diet: Eat Plants, Lose Weight, Save Your Health by Rip Esselstyn. Available at the Newton Free Library, this book features how a group of firefighters in Texas decided to try plant-based eating in order to improve their health. The results may surprise you, and the book is also a treasure trove of healthy, easy-to-make, plant-based recipes. Some participants discussed the first half of the book in January, but you are welcome to join us even if you did not come before, as it will be quite easy to catch up. Following the meeting, some of us will embark on the 7-day rescue diet together.

The Zoom meeting will be held on Thursday, March 23, at 7pm Eastern.


The in-person meeting will be held on Sunday, March 26, at 7pm in the Alliance Room at FUUSN. Please RSVP to the in-person meeting at

Feel free to attend one or both.

About the UU Plant-Based Eating Club

The UU Plant-Based Eating Club is a group of around 60 people who desire to learn about and eat more nutritious and delicious meals together using plant-based whole foods. Members are primarily interested in learning how to prepare truly delicious, plant-based, healthy meals and sharing the joys of eating with others from our local UU community. We are all exploring the powerful ways food can sustain and improve the health and vitality of people and the planet. You are welcome to join us no matter what your dietary and religious practices are, as long as you are interested in supporting other group members in their pursuit of a whole food, plant-based lifestyle and are considering it for yourself whether in whole or in part. Non-UUs and non-vegans are welcome. For more information, visit the UU Plant Based Eating Club webpage.
