    Eating Up The World

    Health is one of the most important, and most overlooked, issues in our community today and having a real understanding of health is the key to thriving every day. But where to start?
    Come along to Eka Wholefoods in Seddon and learn how to create a healthier lifestyle and improve your personal health with Mark Doneddu, president of Vegetarian Victoria, founder and Director for World Vegan Day Melbourne.

    Mark will be sharing his 20 years experience of extensive research into today's health issues and Mark will explain in each case the contradictory media reports about foods and will look into how these reports stack up against scientific evidence. Mark sites many examples from scientific literature to support insights into optimal human health.

    The night will help provide guidance on your road to optimal health.

    Eka Wholefoods will be serving you a herbal tea and organic popcorn on the night!

    Over 180,000 of the Eating Up the World booklets have been distributed all over Australia that explain how the standard western diet is damaging the environment.

    Your Health, Your Choice - The Signature of Foods

    Your Health, Your Choice is a series of workshops that has been running monthly in Mt Evelyn since February. Each month Mark Doneddu presents on different health topics. The talks so far have looked at different sources of optimal protein, general concerns around current western diet, we looked at different recipes and the benefits of their ingredients and spoke about the recently released and highly acclaimed documentary What The Health!

    In this Month's Talk with Mark we will be looking at The Signature of Foods, that is how the foods we eat, look like parts of our body, and how those foods have a beneficial impact on those specific body parts of the body. This will be a really interesting talk, and may make you look at your foods in a whole new way.

    Vegans comprise people from diverse walks of life, backgrounds, ages, cultures, nationalities and occupations. There is no stereotypical vegan, as we have vegan centenarians and vegan babies, vegan buskers and vegan bankers, vegan truck drivers and vegan ballet dancers.
