Second Monday of Every Month


We are a group of caring people dedicated to helping each other learn to eat more healthfully, by replacing any processed foods in our diets with foods that are real, natural, and tasty!  You will learn to eat “processed-free” in a group setting designed to foster solid knowledge of nutrition, healthy cooking, and confident food choices.

There are no weigh-ins and no calorie counting. The intention of this group is to create a space for change; to educate and enlighten ourselves on the value of proper nutrition, and to support each other in making healthy food choices.

The Processed-Free Support Groups were started by Dee McCaffrey, a formerly obese chemist who lost 100 pounds and has kept the weight off for over 20 years by staying away from processed foods—and through giving and receiving support to others who are on the same path. She is now an internationally known author and nutritionist.

Knowing how daunting it can be to alter one’s diet, in her books Dee shares her own experience managing the transition and lays out a plan to help readers make the jump.  She emphasizes the importance of having a supportive community to help stay on track.

“Support is crucial” says Dee, “because it helps us to cultivate a belief in ourselves and connects us to others in ways that we don’t often find in other relationships, especially when it comes to changing our food choices.”

The Processed-Free Support Group is a great place to learn about healthy foods, ask questions, exchange recipes and ideas, try new foods, discuss healthy foods and experience the magic of working together to achieve a common goal.

The group follows suggestions outlined in The Science of Skinny by Dee McCaffrey, in conjunction with other scientifically confirmed nutrition information.  Books can be purchased at the group meetings or online at
