Incorporating a Vegan Lifestyle

Grant Butler - Incorporating a Vegan Lifestyle

Grant Butler has been writing about Oregon’s food scene for nearly two decades. The renowned columnist will be presenting “Going Vegan: A Tasty, Eye-Opening Journey,” on Thursday, January 12 at 6:30 p.m. at Adventist Medical Center’s Amphitheater C.

Nearly two years ago, the writer switched to a plant-based diet. Butler will share his personal journey from a burger-gobbling kid to a kale-crazed adult and will explain how his new food choices have changed his family’s dynamics and eating habits.

The event is free, but reservations are required by calling 503-256-4000.
