This Saturday at the 2nd annual (free!) SoCal Vegfest I will be on an athlete panel, giving a talk on how you don’t need expensive/exotic foods to be vegan and healthy, and I’ll have a booth selling books and Strongest Hearts t-shirts! It will be a SUPER busy day, but I’d love to see some of my old friends who knew me when I posted on my website regularly. Plus if you visit my booth I’ll have some exciting info about an upcoming project!
The entire event is free (as is parking which I hear is a big deal) so it’s an excellent opportunity to bring some friends who are veg-curious. There’s lots of delicious food, good speakers, and it’s on a beautiful college campus. You can sit on the grass in the shade and eat your food in peace, if that’s your thing. Here are the details for Saturday:
- 10-6pm (both Sat and Sun!) Visit my booth, #91 (in the B Section), where I’ll have books, Strongest Hearts t-shirts (printed by Handlebar Mustache!), and Joshua Ploeg will have his new books!
- 1030am Registered Dietitian meet-up in cohort with the Vegetarian Nutrition Practice Group! If you are an RD and want to meet others with an interest in plant-based diets and/or veganism meet us at my booth, #91. Maps here.
- 1120-1225pm Vegan Athlete panel on the main stage. Join me and other athletes as we discuss how to train while eating plant foods.
- 115-2pm My talk: Unraveling the Myth that Plant-based Foods are Expensive and Exotic, in the Speakers Hall. One of my favorite talks! Learn about vegan nutrition.
