go nuts david_gabbeHave an allergy to dairy and looking for alternatives? Already converted to nut milks, but want a cheaper or fresher source? Interested in making more of your own food, but aren’t sure where to start? Join us Thursday July 17th 6:30-8:00pm when local vegan chef and author David Gabbe will “Go Nuts.” There will be step-by-step demonstrations on making your own non-dairy milks and cheeses, a Q&A session, recipes and other handouts, 40%-off sale on his book, and best of all- free samples! Sign up by calling Cedar Mill Library at 503-644-0043 ext 114.

And what better way to learn about food than watching movies about it? For “Movie Monday,” enjoy a handful of veganity-inspiring movies:

When a marketing executive for a huge burger chain finds a nasty secret ingredient in their burger recipe, he goes to the ranches and slaughterhouses of Colorado to investigate and finds that the truth about our Fast Food Nation is sometimes difficult to swallow.

Filmmaker Joe Cross, who was recently Fat, Sick, & Nearly Dead, travels the United States promoting to all he encounters a lifestyle “reboot” centered around consuming only fruit and vegetable juices.

Food, Inc reveals various details of food ingredients and additives, and how contemporary mass production methods of food affects U.S. culture.

Forks Over Knives examines the profound claim that most, if not all, degenerative diseases that afflict us can be controlled, or even reversed, by rejecting animal-based and processed foods and adopting a whole foods plant-based diet.

Part science class, and part adventure story, Vegucated follows three meat- and cheese-loving New Yorkers who agree to adopt a vegan diet for six weeks.

And while Scott Pilgrim vs the World is not really about food, it is such good silly fun that I’m gonna include it anyway. In this comic-book-inspired rom-com, Scott must defeat a girl’s seven evil exes before they can date. It get a nod here because one of the villains gets his superpowers from being vegan!

Happy viewing!
