1pm – Joyfully Vegan – Tips For Successfully Transitioning to a Vegan Diet by Natalie Heath

Have you been struggling with going or staying vegan? Do you find yourself falling off the wagon when you come up against obstacles like eating out, socialising and traveling? Or maybe you’d like to go vegan but you are worried about nutritional deficiencies on a plant-based diet? Are you frightened of being judged by your family and friends for your chosen way of eating? Do your cooking skills or knowledge of vegan alternatives hold you back in creating delicious healthy plant based meals? Worried about cost or lack of time to make your vegan food, especially if you’re feeding a non-vegan family as well?

If you answered yes to one or more of these questions then this talk by Vegan Nutrition
and Lifestyle Coach Natalie Heath is for you! Natalie will explain some of the common roadblocks that new vegans often face, and how to navigate your way round them with grace and ease. Often all it takes is a little organisation or a small mindset shift to skyrocket you to a successful healthy plant-based diet. Natalie will give you some practical action steps that you can try straight away to make your vegan transition easier and much more enjoyable. Through her client work, Natalie has uncovered some key secrets to success when transitioning to a vegan lifestyle, and she will share three of those secrets with you during her talk. Implementing these at the beginning, or whatever stage you’re at on your vegan transition journey will hugely accelerate your success in reaching your goals. Natalie will be taking some of this material from her upcoming book, which will be
published later this year.

2pm – Cooking with Kate: Let’s go NUTS in the kitchen!

NUTS – these bad boys, mostly known as the good FATS, are much more than only healthy snacks. Peanuts, almonds, hazelnuts, walnuts, cashews, pecans, macadamias, pistachios, Brazil nuts; they are all produced throughout the world. The European Snacks Association recognises that regular consumption of nuts is a part of a healthy and balanced diet and that nuts are an important source of nutrients, including fibre, minerals and vitamins. In fact, peanuts contain the most PROTEIN out of all nuts. Who doesn’t like crunchy peanut butter? You can create infinite protein-packed dishes and very yummy dressings, too.

Why should you learn how to cook only one dish? With the exact same ingredients, and a little creativity, you can make different nutritious and delicious recipes.

In this workshop, you will learn how to create sweet and savoury nut dressings (salted caramel drizzle and soy peanut dipping sauce) and how to put them together in 4 super-easy and enjoyable Summer dishes: chocolate protein smoothie bowl; choco-nutty protein oat bowl; mango-avocado rye toast; and fresh Vietnamese spring rolls. These dishes are perfect for everyone – for those with a sweet tooth, or salty taste buds!

I am pleased to announce that I will be cooking using wholesome and high-quality organic products from local ethical-sustainable businesses, such as: High nut-content mylks and super crunchy nut butters from Katie’s Nuttery; Gluten-free and high-fibre natural porridge from The Great British Porridge Co; Fresh seasonal fruits and veggies from Abel & Cole, and proudly; The finest Ecuadorian chocolate and raw cacao powders from Pacari.

In a nutshell, come join me and lets all go NUTS in the kitchen. Shall we?

Exploring how veganism has become established within the mainstream, how it is viewed by others, and the different forms of advocacy/activism we are choosing to use and what can be strategically more effective

2pm – Health as a Choice by Gabriela Lerner 

Most of us only think about health when we don’t have it. We start to consider taking action when we have a serious health crisis, are troubled by a chronic condition, think we need to lose weight, pain or lack of energy.

But what is optimum health and how can we shift our mindset so that taking consistent action in service of our wellbeing becomes our natural tendency? Where we no longer need to force ourselves to stick to a difficult diet regime, with the hope that we can stop it once we feel better, but where every action comes from a clear desire to be healthy.

Optimum health is a lifestyle and it all starts with choice!

Gabriela’s talk will introduce you to a radical new way of thinking, which will not only serve your own wellbeing but also that of other sentient beings and the planet as a whole. The lifestyle choice she would like to share with you in this talk is one that respects all sentient beings, has its roots in raw, plant-based foods and challenges us to make conscious choices from a place of love, compassion and kindness.
