"Hi! My name is Micheline - that's me on the horse - and I would love to tell you about how I switched to a plant-strong diet and how it’s completely changed my life - in fact, it saved me!
I became interested in changing my diet once I realized Florida's weather was cooling down and I couldn't enjoy it anymore due to my new hot flash experiences.
I am very grateful to Wayne, whose advice has been very helpful to me and my family for more than 10 years.
So, I decided to just take the jump, pick up the phone and call. Wayne and his team explained to me how changing my diet can not only help me get healthy from the inside but will also allow me to enjoy the cooler Florida weather!
The advice about starting a vegetarian diet was very appealing, yet I wondered, how would I be able to make such a switch? How would I keep my hunger at bay? Protein intake is so important! I wanted it NOW, yet my schedule was packed. Where will I find time to gather all the answers?
Luckily for me, when the student is ready, the teacher appears - the Community Kitchen's protein information article was immensely helpful!
Armed with my personal summary of the article, I marched to the health food store along with all sorts of questions. Voila! 45 minutes later, I had all kinds of never before seen stuff to make very yummy, vegetarian meals.
So, I turned to the Community Kitchen folks again (bless their hearts!) and asked for more help.
Please, please can you assist me with easy, yummy recipes so my husband can also get on board with this new way of cooking.
Bingo! Again, Pamela came alongside me and now, surprisingly (mostly to me!), we have been enjoying some wonderful dinners! I never knew how easy this could be with a little bit of help from these amazing people.
When you get to the point where you want to start experimenting with vegetarian/vegan lifestyle, you need to consider the assistance of these extraordinary folks and get ready for the surprise of your life! My husband still cannot believe the tasty omelets have no eggs in it and tonight we ate the best vegan BBQ ever!
This is honestly exciting and I believe you too will enjoy the process as much as we have.
And thank you Community Kitchen people for making this such an effortless event." - Micheline Voets

Our Community Kitchen - July Recipe
Adapted from Crif Dogs, NYC
Serves 6 – Vegan – 30 minutes or fewer
This surprisingly good Japanese inspiration has been a menu favorite at Crif Dogs for years—now the name reminds patrons to keep supporting disaster relief.
- 6 vegetarian hot dogs
- 6 buns, lightly toasted
- 1 8-oz. can pineapple chunks, drained and chopped
- 6 scallions, thinly sliced
- 6 Tbs. commercial teriyaki sauce
Split dogs lengthwise until nearly halved. Spray grill with cooking spray. Open each hot dog out almost flat, and place on grill. Weight down, if possible, to increase amount of surface touching grill; turn to grill other side.
Put hot dogs split-side up in buns. Sprinkle each liberally with chopped pineapple and scallions, and top with 1 Tbsp. teriyaki sauce.
