We had a great time this past weekend at the SoCal VegFest. Thanks so much to all of you who stopped by the Living Ubuntu booth.
Countless times I have heard people struggling with understanding what it means to eat a plant-based diet as an image of iceberg lettuce, non-edible shrubbery, or tree bark pops into their head. Vegetables, fruits, grains, nuts, seeds and legumes are all plants and can easily be combined for a very healthy, more sustainable way of eating.
If “plant-based” puzzles you, or you are already eating that way, but still have questions, tomorrow night is your chance to get some help with this. SoCal VegFest and Living Ubuntu’s project, Living Vegan, have partnered to offer a series of plant-based workshops. I have been eating plant-based for ten years now and I keep learning more each time I hear plant-based nutritionists, Gina Bonanno-Lemos and Laura Robinson Oatman speak. They are both delightful to listen to as well as well-informed. Tomorrow evening is another opportunity to hear them both.
Come join us tomorrow evening, Wednesday, November 2 6:00pm – 8:00pm for: Thriving on a Plant Based Diet (Part I & II).
The event is free, ordering a tasty dinner at Au Lac is optional, but highly enjoyable.
Also — An Evening of Compassion and Being Together is less than three weeks away. Purchase your tickets and / or donate here.
