Plant-Based DFW

Welcome to Plant-Based DFW!  We offer lectures, movie screenings, potlucks & walks with the intention to help build and support our community.



We are now part of the PlantPure Communities Pod Network. Join us here.

What is the purpose for a pod? To build stronger, healthier, and more sustainable communities by supporting and educating their local communities about the benefits of a whole food, plant-based lifestyle though Pod meetings and projects. All Pods are part of the PlantPure Communities Pod Network and work together as a grassroots movement to encourage all people to eat whole plant-based foods and reduce or eliminate their consumption of animal products, including meat, dairy, fish, and eggs, and also processed food, such as sugar and oil.


Walk & Talk With Dr. Riz

We now offer monthly walks in various areas. 

"Walk: This is one activity that all successful centenarians did- and do- almost daily. It's free, easier on the joints than running, always accessible, invites company, and if you're walking briskly, may have the same cardiovascular benefits as running. After a hard day, a walk can relieve stress; after a meal, it can aid digestion." - Dan Buettner

Many of you have requested that we offer potlucks. We have now scheduled several potlucks for the year.
