VEG Nutrition Week at KU

Wondering how to eat healthy on a plant-based diet? Not sure that veganism is nutritionally sound? Find out all about the health benefits of a veg diet at KU VEG‘s first-ever VEG Nutrition Week! We kicked it off today with a “healthy” bake sale (hey, everything was cholesterol-free), and later this evening we’ll be showing Forks Over Knives for FREE in Boehm 260.

Tomorrow, come see Joe Brandolo of Slow Food Philadelphia speak about the impacts of slow food—because eating veg isn’t only healthy for you; it’s healthy for the planet.

Wednesday evening, Gary Gibson of The Vegan Effect presents “Becoming Super-Human” at 6:30, followed by Diana Menard of Glow Health talking about the 80-10-10 diet at 7:30.

Finally, members of VEG will be wrapping it up Thursday with a workshop with tips and inspiration for how to transition to a vegetarian or vegan diet.

Hope to see you on campus this week, and be sure to check out some of the local business participants while you’re at it. Betty’s, Adam2 Cafe, and Global Libations are all getting involved with the healthy veg scene!
