Check out The Triangle Low-Carb Cooking Meetup!
Earlier this year I told you about a low-carb meetup group in the Denver, Colorado area who regularly get together to talk about this beloved thing I like to call livin' la vida low-carb. Well, now we've got another one!
It's called the Triangle Low Carb Cooking Meetup group and they are located in the Raleigh/Durham, North Carolina area. Several of my "Livin' La Vida Low-Carb Discussion" forum readers live in and around that area and are planning on regular monthly meetings to talk about low-carb living.
I'm only about four hours away from there and will be planning to join up with them sometime in the next few months or so. I may try to plan a trip to visit Dr. Eric Westman and his team of researchers at the Duke University Medical Center there in Durham (he'd make an excellent guest speaker at a future meeting, by the way!) at the same time to make a trip of it. I'll let you know when that happens.
In the meantime, if you live in this area and want to join up with your fellow Triangle Low-Carbers, then go to the Meetup page to sign up so you'll never miss a future meeting! In fact, they'll be having their NEXT meeting coming this Thursday, September 13, 2007 at 6:30pm (or when you can get there!) at the Golden Corral located at 5006 Apex Highway 55 in Durham.
It'll be fun getting together with fellow low-carbers to talk about cooking ideas, recipes, weight loss and maintenance issues, and the fine art of livin' la vida low-carb when dining out. Contact Jen or Leslie if you are interested in attending. In fact, Leslie provided her cell phone number for you to RSVP to her directly--919-889-0223. Once you sign up, you can also RSVP at the Meetup page.
Okay, all you low-carb procrastinators in the Raleigh/Durham area, show up and support this low-carb event in your area and make us proud. You are trailblazers and should show the rest of the country (along with the Denver group!) how it's done. I'm coming your way soon, so I hope to see a nice size group when I get there.
Special thanks to Cindy from my forum for telling me about this exciting new low-carb group getting started up in Durham, North Carolina! Go to the event on Thursday and support the efforts that Jen and Leslie have invested in this. I'm sure you'll enjoy talking about livin' la vida low-carb with those who come. :)
9-14-07 UPDATE: The meeting went well last night and they've already got another one scheduled for October. Check it out and plan NOW to be there!
Announcing a new event for Triangle Low Carb Cooking!
What: Buon Appetito Italy!
When: Saturday, October 20, 6:00 PM
Where: Click this link to find out!
Event Description: Let's go Italian!
Our next meetup will be a shared meal with everyone cooking their favorite low carb Italian dish for a big buffet and social mixer. Jen (and Doug) will be hosting the meetup in their home.
Need ideas? How about low carb conversions of classics so delicious you'll swear someone's Italian great-gramma was cookin'! (Except of course you'll get all the recipes...that woman never wrote anything down...)
What about a pesto white pizza, or eggplant parmesan appetizers? A big antipasto "kitchen sink" salad is a sure fire low-carb hit! Maybe whip up a low-glycemic spaghetti and Tuscan meatballs with vodka sauce, or for dessert (drum roll please) homemade Kahlua tiramisu?
Let your imagination roam the hills of Italy, your grannies cookbooks, (or even a few internet recipe sites) for great ideas. If you need suggestions or help please contact meetup organizers Jen or Leslie. Even if you cannot cook a thing, please join us for the meetup - we have ideas about how everyone can contribute to the fun.
We are looking forward to seeing you and sharing some great food!
Be sure to SIGN UP for this low-carb meetup group in Raleigh/Durham, NC! :D
