VegFest Bristol is almost here (23-25 May)! It's gonna be a massive and massively fantastic weekend! Viva! has a marquee - donated by VegFest to celebrate our 20th anniversary.We are launching new Everyone's GoingDairy-Free packs including two new booklets; have Viva! tatoos (!), truly good goody bags for anyone who joins, and masses of delicious vegan chocs, tees, cards, new gifts... Hope to see you there.
Juliet Gellatley’s TWO talks are on Sunday 25 May at 2pm and 3pm:
SUNDAY 2pm WHY YOU DON'T NEED DAIRY
Updated for 2014 with two fabulous new guides, Everyone’s going dairy-free and Why you don’t need dairy AND a new laminated poster, Calcium-Rich Foods (available at this talk).
Is it natural to consume milk after weaning? Indeed, is it safe to consume cow’s milk at all? Juliet explores the many health issues and new research showing why dairy is linked to cancers including breast, prostate and bowel; which foods are known to fight against cancers; how natural growth hormones in milk affect us and what are the dangers of milk protein and saturated fats? Also, if we don’t consume dairy where should we get calcium?
SUNDAY 3pm MOOD FOOD
Updated 2014 with fascinating insights into our genius but sometimes noisy brains!
Four fifths of the UK population claim to be low on energy. Even more say they become impatient too quickly. Our nation takes over 800 million anti-depressants pa. There are many factors involved but when you are feeling low, anxious or irritable, or your memory isn’t what it should be, do you ever question the role of your diet?
Juliet explores the role of food in our mood. She explains what nutrients are needed to make ‘happy hormones’, good munchies for motivation and the best brain boosters. She explains why meat and dairy can drag you down and fruit can make you well, fruity! A fascinating insight into the impact of food on mind and soul!
