Facilitator’s Overview for The World Peace Diet
“If there's no veg or vegan community where you are, then build one using The World Peace Diet!” -- Mark Stroud
“Enter into a gentle world, a world where food is cruelty free and spirits are uplifted. Besides the delicious food, there's music, stimulating conversation and support for embracing a compassionate lifestyle. It's enough to make you believe in the upward trend of humanity that all of us are fervently hoping for. Conversations are based on Will Tuttle's amazing book, The World Peace Diet, the most powerful analysis of our culture's current problems and how to solve them.” – Pat Ritz

“The World Peace Diet study group gave me time to absorb information that I never thought of before. Each session we discussed a couple of chapters and ate some great vegan food. I guess it was learning through the senses. It is mind boggling when you realize what is going on behind the scenes in the food industry. I’m so glad I took this class.” – Christine Kuhr
“The World Peace Diet study course was an inspirational journey. Even though I have been vegan for several years now, reading The World Peace Diet and discussing its ideas in an open environment with a diverse group of people helped me to reaffirm my belief in the power of our food choices, and the impact that making positive changes within my own life has on the world around me. I recommend this course to everyone, especially those who hold peace and love as important ideals.”

“I have been attending the World Peace Diet study groups and potluck for more than a year now. I have found the experience more beneficial than I can put into words. I had already transitioned my diet to a vegan diet when I found the group but my thoughts, beliefs and daily lifestyle were still in transition. The community that Anna Ferguson and Mark Stroud have created and continue to give their heart and soul to has completely become my family. I have never felt as much support and love or felt more at home than I do at these meetings and with this community. I feel that it is absolutely essential to have support like this when making this kind of a lifestyle change. Navigating the rest of the not-yet-vegan world can be challenging to say the least. These meetings have become a refuge, a soft place to rest and regain strength and energy. I look forward to these meetings and begin preparing for them with anticipation days in advance. Each meeting is like a joyous reunion with others that understand my thoughts and beliefs, and a celebration of life and the positive impact that our lives can have on the world around us. The book in and of itself is an amazing and inspirational depiction of our current society and what we can each do personally to contribute to the change that we all want to see. We all want peace and this book along with the study group and potlucks are a step on that journey. I will continue to participate in these potlucks every time they are offered; they have become a beautiful part of who I am.” –Rena Becker
“My wife Claudia and I took the World Peace Diet course and cooking class with renowned Olympic chef Mark Stroud. The information shared and studied in those weeks was priceless. Dr. Tuttle's book, The World Peace Diet, is an exhaustive study of veganism, and having group study made the information more interesting and accessible. The study course is set up so that everybody can participate freely and without judgment from others. The sharing of ideas and opinions was wonderful within our group, and I truly believe that everybody in our group became more educated and mindful of the food they are eating. Sharing the terrific vegan food also helped show that delicious food can be prepared without cruelty. I highly recommend this class.” -- John Mooter, Chair, EarthSave Cincinnati
