New local vegan group plans restaurant events, educational efforts

Vegging Out, a new local initiative for plant-based eating, has announced collaborations with two Homewood restaurants, each to be launched with a special plant-based meal. 

The first event will be a three-course vegan dinner on Friday, Dec. 5, at The Cottage on Dixie. 

The second will be Vegan Night on Nov. 14 at Cilantro.

In addition to restaurant events, the organization, based in Homewood, offers potlucks and educational resources about plant-based eating. The organization is also collaborating with the Homewood Public Library to offer books, cookbooks, videos and websites for plant-based eating.  

Anyone interested in exploring a plant-based lifestyle is welcome to all events.  

Vegging Out is a member organization of PlantPure Nation, a national grass roots movement promoting plant-based eating to prevent and reverse heart disease, diabetes, cancer and obesity.
