In light of the recent devastation our beautiful country has experienced with drought, bushfires and unstable weather patterns, there has been much discussion as to what we can do as individuals to help the environment.

In addition to using your reusable coffee cup, riding your bike more, and recycling more efficiently, you may be considering a vegan or vegetarian diet.

Currently, there is an overwhelming (and sometimes conflicting) amount of information as to what is involved in transitioning to a vegan or vegetarian diet.

As a result, you feel uncertain and confused causing you to avoid making any change or worse, transitioning your diet but in a way that is nutrient void.

To help you decide what diet is best for you and the environment we’ll be covering:

+ Nutritional considerations with vegan and vegetarian diets and and how to address these
+ Some realities of being a vegetarian or vegan and the role of supplements
+ How vegan and vegetarian diets affect your gut health
+ What to do if legumes and pulses and are causing discomfort and pain
+ How your dietary choices can affect the environment
+ The importance of your mental health and relationship with food.

Please note: Tickets are non-refundable but can be transferred to a friend if you can no longer attend.
