November 2019 Meeting

Program Meeting - November 2019

Wednesday, November 20th  at 18:30

We are looking forward to hearing from Ursula Heinz, who will be speaking to give us a basic understanding of the evidence and the benefits of a whole-food plant-based lifestyle. Ursula grew up in Vienna and graduated from medical and dental school in Vienna. She has been practicing orthodontics, following a residency in San Diego, California. She has also spent the last eight years focusing on healthy nutrition, a healthy gut and a sustainable lifestyle. In the past decade, she and her family have lived in Louisiana and in Queensland, Australia, and they have just recently relocated to Munich. Being a physician, it was always my intention to help other people switch to a healthy lifestyle. A few years ago, I started the blog http://www.plantbasedhappy.com and http://www.plantbasedhappykids.com, and have published the book "Stella's Whole Food Plant-Based Family Cookbook", which will be available next year in Germany through the GU Verlag. Last year Ursula successfully launched the company http://www.activatedme.de producing activated nuts and seeds. She also gives lifestyle change workshops in Munich (www.plantbasedhappy.de).

October Brunch with IMMA

Fun and Games

On Sunday October 13th we had our first IMMA Brunch of the operating year.  Freshly made French toast, warm maple syrup, home made marmelades, fresh bread, cheese and fruit got the morning rolling. There were 7 IMMA girls, 2 IMMA staff and 4 AAUPW ladies who ate together and then played a series of different games. There was lots of laughter and good conversations to be had by all. Once again I left the brunch feeling that for just a few hours our club had made a difference for these young ladies.
A heart felt thanks to all of the ladies who helped out and gave of their time, it was much appreciated.
Our next morning with the young ladies will be December 8th. If you are interested in helping out at our brunches please contact Jane.
