"Optimum Health & The Basics of a Vegan Diet" Seminar with Fiona Halar

  • Feb 2, 2013 · 4:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Today a growing number of people are adopting a vegan diet, and many nutritionists now believe that a well-planned vegan diet can be healthier, more nutritionally adequate, and may provide more health benefits in the prevention and treatment of many diseases - such as high cholesterol, high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes and cancer - than an omnivorous diet! Living a vegan lifestyle is also one of the best decisions you can make for the lives of animals and for the environment.

If you are relatively new to veganism or a bit rusty on your nutritional facts and details, or have some questions, come along and learn the basics that you need to know to to have the benefits of a healthy and balanced vegan diet!

This excellent seminar will cover the following topics:

  • Vegan food groups and nutrient needs
  • Mineral absorption on vegan diets
  • Plant-based protein and the protein myth
  • Essential fats: Good fats vs bad fats
  • Vitamin B12
  • Calcium, vitamin D and bone health
  • Iron, zinc and other key nutrients
  • Is soy safe to eat?
  • Living foods and nutrient dense vegan foods to help you thrive!

There will also be some time to ask questions.

Time: Please arrive by 3.45pm for a 4pm start. The seminar goes for approx. 2 hours with a 15 min intermission. Tea, coffee and organic fruit will be served in the break.

Tickets: $30 pre-purchase online or $35 at the door. Includes refreshments in the break, and notes and recipe ideas to take home, as well as a $10 off voucher for a private nutrition consultation with Fiona!

Places strictly limited to 60. Click "RSVP" to purchase your ticket online now via Credit card or Paypal.

Sorry no refunds or rain checks.
