Blogging about Beaver Brook

In case you couldn’t make it. Here’s a bird’s eye view—and by bird’s eye I mean my eye view—of yesterday’s Eat for Health Seminar at the Beaver Brook Country Club in Annandale, New Jersey. Let’s sign in and grab a packet…


Wait, before we check out the presentations, make sure you stock up on any Dr. Fuhrman goodies, books, and vitamins you might need…



Now that your hands are full, Earl—who is also’s friendly tech-support—will be happy to check you out…

Okay, we’re all set, time to—oh, hello. Nice to meet you David! Yup, I’m the blog guy. I’m glad you enjoy it. Thanks for reading! Hey, what are you reading…

I know the new Food Scoring Guide is very cool. Nice meeting you David—okay, time for the presentations, but first, let me grab something to eat…

Wow! Looks like a heard of ravenous nutritarians stampeded through all the grub. No worries, I didn’t come here to eat. Okay, presentation time—hey, how are you…

Thanks for reading Susan! You lost 42 pounds so far? That’s great! Yes, definitely email me about Operation Banana Hunt. See you later—now let me find a seat…


Wow! Talk about a packed house. Here looks good. First up, Dr. Fuhrman’s colleague Jennifer Petrillo, MD is getting ready to give us a research update…

Thanks Dr. Petrillo, lots of great information. Okay, Dr. Fuhrman’s taking the stage, but first, check out my fellow employee Kurt working the camera…

Trust me, he’s not sleeping. He’s just resting his eyes. Now, without any further ado, here’s Dr. Fuhrman talking about his approach to health and nutrition…

Dr. Fuhrman was also joined by a few friends. 


Now, nutritarian Beth takes the stage to share her story…

To close the show, Lisa Fuhrman talks about just how easy it is to be a nutritarian

The day also included some fun and games. Here Dr. Fuhrman staffers Janice and Susan raffle off some prime swag…

Nope, I didn’t win, but then again, when you're a nutritarian, you win everyday. Quick! Let’s head over and get an autograph from Dr. Fuhrman—wait! First, check this out…

I thought that was a nice picture of new nutritarian Billy, leafing through Dr. Fuhrman’s book. Now, back to those autographs…

That was fun! Its great to see so many people taking control of their health. Okay, time to head home—hi there. Wow! All three of you are becoming nutritarians? Cool. Let me get a picture…

Nice meeting you Paloma, Annette, and Marieli! Thanks again for reading the blog, good luck being nutritarians—alright, an exciting day has officially come to an end. I’m out of here. Thanks to everyone who came out! Peace.

Hi Gerry

It was great to meet you at the event on Sunday. Thanks for posting about me. However, I've lost 42 pounds not 25. You're making my "ticker" look bad (lol).

I'll be sure to send you the next organic bbanana farm sticker # I get.

Hey Susan-

My bad. I'll fix it. ;)

Nice meeting you too! And bananas, bananas, bananas, bananas, and, bananas, bananas, bananas...


LLouise - January 14, 2008 3:02 PM

Great pictures! Thanks. And have I told you lately, Gerr, that you are a blogger extraordinaire? Nice job! :^D

Gerry Pugliese - January 14, 2008 3:13 PM

Hey Llouise-

Thanks! You're making me feel all warm and squishy. :)

Speaking of squishy. Where are your bananas? Operation Banana Hunt needs you!


Susan Cohen - January 14, 2008 3:50 PM

Thanks Gerry. It was a fabulous day on Sunday. I'm still in the glow.

Bananas will be coming this weekend when I shop. That's banana with 1 "b". ;).

Peace to you too.



LLouise - January 14, 2008 3:54 PM

LOL! Well, as fond as I am of your bananas, Gerr, I, myself, rarely buy them. What to do with them??

David - January 14, 2008 4:25 PM

Hey Gerry - great meeting you too! Nice pictorial walk-through of the event. It was great seeing and listening to Dr. Furhman in person, overall excellent day!


Gerry Pugliese - January 14, 2008 7:25 PM

Hey David-

Dr. Fuhrman is a riot. A little secret. He tells a mean knock-knock joke. :)


Jayson - January 15, 2008 9:34 PM

Looks like a good time and informative event. Wish the distance wouldnt have precluded me from attending. The pictures are very nice and is great to see a packed house. Glad it was a success. Would there perhaps be an audio cast of the event...?

Gerry Pugliese - January 15, 2008 10:19 PM

Hey Jayson-

Kurt, the camera guy in the photo, was working on something today. I'll keep you posted.


Wombat - January 16, 2008 6:22 PM

Gerald I could "see" the first three photos and then the rest were unviewable, Any suggestions?

Gerry Pugliese - January 16, 2008 6:33 PM

Hey Wombat-

Well, that's interesting. I just checked the post. All looks well. Try hitting refresh. The photos are high-detail, so if you have a slow PC, it might crap out on you. Hope that helps.


Elijah Lynn - February 12, 2008 10:39 PM

Those pictures are HUGE! One was over 2.5 megs! We gotta get those optimized!

Elijah Lynn - February 12, 2008 10:40 PM

What's with all that Kale left over on the fruit platter, eh?

Nancy Goodman - July 24, 2008 11:57 PM

way too slow for us not rich people..glad you all enjoyed it..

wombat I wrote you on another site..please get in touch with the way photos are supposed to be reduced to at least 640 X 480 or smaller for email or internet...just a minor point for the people that are on dial up...I can't see them and I have broadband! Well most of the photos finally loaded but the 3 day Chef's weekend for Dr. McDougall in Santa Rosa's food sure looked better! It was all delicious....whoah and besides the website is FREE!!!!!!!!! and I am finally off my blood pressure pills and no I haven't had a sudden cardiac arrythmea from not eating the darn nuts! cheers!!
