Getting Essential Nutrients on a Plant Based Diet

Monday, May 28, 2018     6:30 – 8:00     $20

       Where will I get my protein without meat, poultry, fish, eggs and dairy?
       How can I keep my calcium level up without milk?
       Wait…a vegan diet has a LOT of carbs. Carbs are bad for you, right?
       I don’t want to be anemic. What about iron?
       Potassium, iodine, zinc, magnesium, Omega 3 fatty acids, vitamin D, Vitamin B12, we’ll discuss them all.
I will go over macronutrients and micronutrients one by one, and if you still have questions when I am finished, ask away, and I will answer them (or find you the answer if I can’t answer them.)
The cost is $20 (payable by cash or credit card at Garlik Vegan) or get your ticket through Brown Paper Tickets online for a small fee (here).
Your ticket includes the presentation along with a delicious slice (or two) of pizza and a dessert (either carrot cake or raw cheesecake).
We will provide water to drink, and will have other beverages, including beer, wine, hard cider, kombucha, and soda available for purchase.
Space is limited. Get your tickets today!
Please note: we are able to accommodate gluten free requests but they MUST be made in advance.

What’s the difference between vegan & plant-based?

The word vegan can stand for a diet or a person. A vegan is someone who chooses not to eat meat, poultry, fish, dairy, eggs, and honey. Moreover, vegans usually do not wear nor use animals at all. The original definition of “veganism” was coined by Donald Watson: “a philosophy and way of living which seeks to exclude — as far as is possible and practical — all forms of exploitation of, and cruelty to, animals for food, clothing or any other purpose…”

Plant-based is a newer term, which specifically deals with diet. It refers to eating plants as opposed to animals, mainly for health reasons, and it doesn’t deal with clothing, toiletries, etc. Other terms include: plant strong, whole food plant based, and many more.
