This past weekend the 32nd annual Veg Food Fest took place at Harbour Front. Dozens of vendors came together for a weekend jam-packed with good vibes and vegan donuts as far as the eye could see. Fun fact: I volunteered at veg fest way back in my high school days before I even thought of going vegetarian or vegan! This was my first Veg Fest as a vegan, so obviously my excitement to attend was through the roof.
I had the pleasure of attending the Live Long and Prosper Panel, vegan donuts in hand (ironic, I know) to hear some great advice from John Lewis (The Bad Ass Vegan), Dr. Tushar Mehta, Dr. Reed Mangels, and Dr. Michael Greger. After the panel Dr. Greger was kind enough to stick around to chat and sign copies of his latest book How Not To Die, which I HIGHLY recommend you read!
There were so many wonderful vendors and so little time. Next year, I plan on attending all three days rather than just one. Here are a couple of my highlights from Saturday.
For a small peek at what went down this weekend (including a guest appearance from Dr. Greger himself), check out my latest YouTube vlog!
Whether you’re vegetarian, vegan, or just curious about the lifestyle you DO NOT want to miss out on the next Veg Food Fest. The amazing food vendors will change your mouth’s mind about “rabbit food” and the captivating cooking demos and talks will give you a new perspective.
