Staff Reports

Kimberly Wilkes, co-author of The Disciples’ Diet: Eat Like Jesus Did To Feel Energized, Lose Weight, and Live a Long Life and The Disciples’ Diet Cookbook, will host a complimentary lunch and a brief discussion about Jesus’ lifestyle and the types of foods He and his contemporaries ate. The event will take place after the 10 a.m. service at Coventry Cross Episcopal Church at 1631 Esmeralda Place in Minden on Sunday, January 19, from approximately 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Wilkes and the other author of the books, Portland, Oregon doctor Chris D.

The fundraiser will feature complementary food (while supplies last) made from recipes in The Disciples’ Diet Cookbook including Savory Vegetable Soup, Grain-Free Cashew, Raisin, and Cinnamon Bread, and Gluten-Free Tahini Cookies.

It also offers advice on how to avoid or reduce modern day threats to health such as noise and air pollution, emotional stress, electromagnetic fields and more. The Disciples’ Diet Cookbook provides more than 100 recipes created based on the principles of The Disciples’ Diet.
