About this Event

The wholefood plant-based diet is taking the world by storm, and Ireland needs to follow suit. Less than 25% of the Irish population are getting their recommended serving of '5 a day', while 20% get no fruit and veg a day at all in their diet. The WHO, UN and Harvard medical school are all advocating that people around the world, switch to more plant-based eating. Come along to learn how plant-based eating is helping leading athletes to stay on top of their game - and ahead of the rest!

Our not to be missed event is divided into two parts:

Part 1: Introduction to Plant Based Nutrition

The first part of our evening is a crash course in everything you need to know about plant-based eating. The lecture will introduce attendees to the concept, the health benefits, how to transition and thrive long term, all while avoiding common pitfalls. The material will be delivered by Greg Xavier, founder of Plant Based Ireland. Greg is a nutritionist & chef, and has lectured on the subject in Europe, North America and Asia.
