Farms 2 Forks immersion

I find it funny that I'm going to this:
http://www.farms2forks.com/immersion/chicago-il/

I planned this long before I started drinking these guys' kool-aide, though, maybe I was and didn't know it.  I just thought this would be a fun way to get some healthy food and hang out with my best friend from college.   I'll get to meet, or at least, see and listen to, Jeff Novick, Doug Lisle, Dr. Esselstyn and his son Rip.  I'm sort of in love with Dr. Lisle.  But I'll get over it.

My friend arrives tomorrow and the immersion is this weekend.  I'm trying not to anticipate it so I don't jinx it, but I am really looking forward to a fun weekend.

Fantastic! I look forward to a full report when you get back. Dr. Lisle's talk about navigating this eating style with social situations looks like it will be good. Please take notes!

Wow! I had no idea this was going on in my own city. Hope you have a great time! I watched the Engine 2 Kitchen Rescue last night & got some good ideas for things my kids might eat from Rip. I love the strength and enthusiasm he exudes.

Thanks for your reply about the salt - strangely, I had never heard the 1 mg/cal thing, but that's helpful. Now to find a good sandwich bread to make some "plant-strong" sandwiches my girls can't resist!
