Live in or near Baltimore, MD?   Come to the monthly Baltimore Nutrition As Medicine Potluck.  RSVP required because space is limited.  Bring a dish to share without meat, fish, eggs, or dairy, and not too much, if any, SOS (salt, oil, sugar).   Please bring a card or a piece of paper listing ingredients (in case someone has food sensitivities) and also your name, contact info, and the name of your dish - so others can get in touch to get your recipe.  There's nothing sweeter than being asked for a recipe . . . unless it's getting to try a recipe without first having to make it yourself.  

This is a supportive community for those who want to control, reverse or prevent obesity, diabetes, cancer, hypertension, etc. and also for those who just want to taste and share delicious new recipes, & get nutrition information and cooking tips.  There will be a presentation on cooking and nutrition, and the chance to share recipes, as well as how you are doing in your personal journey. 
RSVP at 410-695-6687 (leave a message with your name and contact info), or at   or

We tested and selected only the quickest and most delicious can't-fail recipes that everyone will love.

Eat all you want because plant-based whole foods satisfy and fill you up with few calories and lots of fiber.

These foods lead to weight loss without dieting or portion control. They prevent, treat and sometimes reverse the "food­borne illnesses" of obesity, type II diabetes and heart disease.

Almost everyone should be successful with these recipes, especially busy people who may not be used to cooking. That's what makes this site special. We’re selective. You can post a new recipe under ‘Recipes In Development’ if you're not absolutely sure about it; someone will try it out & give feedback.

For health reasons, recipes on this site do not include dairy, meat (including poultry or fish), and tends to steer clear of added oil, refined flour, sugar and processed foods for the most part.  These recipes are for people who want to lose weight, improve blood sugar, blood pressure, stabilize or improve heart disease, lower their risk of cancer, and also for anyone looking for delicious recipes. 

… with ingredients that are easy to find (with some exceptions, such as nutritional yeast).  We encourage readers to be flexibile & creative.  (Most recipes are general guidelines).   There are sections for more time-consuming recipes if they're especially good.

…of commercial products or services on this site (although participants can include a link to their twitter or facebook page in their profile). Our purpose is to share the joys of healthy food with as many people as possible.
