This is a monthly meeting on healthy diet. TVIH members share their journey/recipes/books/articles to improve their health by changing the food they eat every day.

Today’s topic: Meat or Beans: What Will You Have?

A 5-ounce steak has 300 calories, while a cup of pinto beans has 265. But the steak comes with 44 grams of protein, 120 milligrams of cholesterol, and 12 grams of fat, much of it saturated. In contrast, the beans contain 15 grams of protein, no cholesterol, and only 1 gram of fat, which is polyunsaturated.


Please read these 2 articles and come to share your bean-eating experiences and bean recipes with other members. 

By switching to a predominantly plant-based diet, several TVIH members have lost weight and one member was able to reduce the dosage of a prescription drug that she takes.

This is the 4th session after Nancy Lyon’s talks on 5/15, 6/19 and 7/17. Nancy switched to a vegan diet 7 years ago and has noticed significant health improvement. For reference material, please go to the 7/17 website posting.
