Edinburgh Vegan festival 2016

We will be at Edinburgh Vegan Festival 2016

This August 6th and 7th we will be attending the Edinburgh Vegan Festival. After the huge success of 2015 Edinburgh (More Details) is will be hosting a bigger better festival. The 2015 event had one of the largest turnouts for a vegan festival we have ever seen, so we are expecting big things from this summers event, that alongside the festival is held in the same week as the Edinburgh Fringe.

Dotsie Bausch Vegan Olympian Cyclist

Dotsie Bausch Vegan Olympian Cyclist

Dotsie Bausch Olympian Cyclist. The road to healing from anorexia led former model Dotsie Bausch to pursue cycling and eventually to a silver medal in the 2012 Olympics. In this inspiring talk she reminds listeners to “be your best you” and challenges them to make healthy changes in their own lives. Bausch urges people to reevaluate the way they think about food and the impact eating meat has on animals and the environment.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

In 2007, after spending 10 years as a member of the U.S. National Road Cycling Team, Bausch tried track cycling for the first time and amazingly rode on to win two national titles on the track that same year. She continued her success on the track, breaking a world record along the way, and in August 2012, Bausch became an Olympian and competed on the track in the London Summer Olympics, where she won a silver medal in the team pursuit event. While Bausch has scored major victories on the bike, perhaps her greatest victory came from resurrecting her own life from the depths of severe eating disorders, which threatened to take her life over a decade ago after a promising modeling career in New York City.

Impossible Foods New Burger

Impossible Foods New Burger

To be honest I think it does not look that nice ( a bit too real ), but anything meatless must be a good thing.

One startup believes it’s cracked the code on fake meat that looks like meat, bleeds like meat, and even sizzles on the grill. WSJ’s Evelyn Rusli stops by Impossible Foods for a taste.

Impossible Foods, Inc. has raised $108 million in a Series D round led by UBS that was joined by Viking Global Investors, among others. Earlier investors, including Li Ka-shing’s Horizons Ventures, Khosla Ventures and Mr. Gates also participated, the company said. Founded in 2011 by Stanford University biochemist Patrick O. Brown, Impossible Foods is creating plant-based foods that it says taste like meat or dairy equivalents but use fewer resources, agriculturally and environmentally speaking, to produce.
