“PlanEAT” – Transition Town Movie Night
ovember 8, 2017 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm
Foyer Oxford, 196 Oxford St, Leederville WA 6007, Australia
PLANEAT is the story of three men’s life-long search for a diet, which is good for our health, good for the environment and good for the future of the planet. With an additional cast of pioneering chefs and some of the best cooking you have ever seen, the scientists and doctors in the film present a convincing case for the West to re-examine its love affair with meat and dairy. The film features the ground-breaking work of Dr. T Colin Campbell in China exploring the link between diet and disease, Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn’s use of diet to treat heart disease patients, and Professor Gidon Eshel’s investigations into how our food choices contribute to global warming, land use and oceanic dead zones.
With the help of some innovative farmers and chefs, PLANEAT shows how the problems we face today can be solved, without simply resorting to a diet of lentils and lettuce leaves.
The guest speaker will be Kara O’Halloran will be sharing her passion for raw food by demonstrating some delicious recipes that you can take home to use. Kara is from Taranaki in NZ where she was a Health and PE teacher for 9yrs. In 2010 she suffered from ill health which could not be explained. This is when she turned to the support of a naturopath and a high raw food diet to support her wellness journey. In 2011 she moved to Perth and pursued her passion of becoming a raw food coach. She loved making raw food so much she has made it her full time job for almost 3yrs by becoming the owner/operator of Kara Naki- a permanent stall in the Fremantle markets that specialises in plant-based meals, snacks and drinks.
