06/11/22 VeggieFair: Education on Healthy Habits and Compassion!
- 14. 6., 8 a.m. – 8 p.m., Jelačić Square in Zagreb: 11th VeggieFair; Vegan Diet Counseling
11th VeggieFair will be held on June 14th, 1022 from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. at Zagreb Ban Jelačić Square.
The organizers of VeggieFair, Animal Friends Croatia, are pleased that this year the visitors, besides being well-fed and having bags filled with vegan groceries and cosmetics not tested on animals, will also be able to return from the VeggieFair with some new useful information.
In a form of an interview by Sara Mešin with Mark Samardžija, a plant-based diet consultant, vegan and a fitness trainer, a live consultation on vegan diet will be held at 3 p.m. All visitors will be able to learn on the spot all they want to know about the vegan diet. Marko has been nurturing a holistic approach to fitness for years, which involves quality training, a sustainable diet and continued motivation. He will bring together the sports and veganism theme and discuss concrete suggestions for vegan athletes in training and his own experience.
During the VeggieFair all interested will be able to learn and read about animal rights and veganism through 15 educative panels. „The visitors especially like to be informed about the recipes, hear some book and film suggestions as well to read about the list of plant substitutes for meat, eggs and dairy. We invite all who care about the animals, their own health and the health of the planet, to leave the VeggieFair not only well-fed and with filled bags, but also to educate themselves on healthy habits and compassion, so they could bring positive changes into their lives by reducing animal-based products’ consumption or, even better, total transition to veganism”, Animal Friends Croatia stated.
Today, it is generally accepted that the plant-based diet offers many advantages over a diet based on animal-origin foods. It has numerous positive effects on the environment, including biodiversity conservation, more sustainable use of Earth’s resources and a positive impact against climate change. „VeggieFair helps us learn how to be better towards ourselves, animals, the planet and other people, and at the same time, we can also have a good time tasting various dishes. Come and indulge in positive energy, laughter and cheerfulness on Tuesday, June 14th, 2022 in the center of Zagreb”, invite Animal Friends Croatia.
At the VeggieFair, there will be many exhibitors and restaurants that will provide visitors with various tastings and promotions of exclusively vegan offerings, and chairs under umbrellas for all those who want to taste the vegan specialties from Lebanese or Japanese cuisine, juicy burgers and wraps, as well as rich and tasty stews or to sweeten their taste buds with refreshing juices, fermented teas of various flavors and cakes and pastries.
