Maciek Kolbusz, the speaker, has been a raw vegan for over four years, and has also been researching about natural nutrition. He is a certified Natural Hygienist and nutrition expert from Poland, who now lives in Bangalore. The venue, Paradigm Shift, is a lovely vegan restaurant in the heart of Bangalore city. Their food is yummy, and the menu offers many healthy options. They are soon launching a special all-raw menu.

According to a recent study, 60% of men and 57% of women in India were found to have a low intake of fresh fruits and vegetables – an open invitation to diabetes, heart diseases, and cancer. At this free event, Maciek will tell how it is possible to reverse diseases, lower the risk of cancer, slow ageing, and improve fitness by saying ‘yes’ to plants, and ‘no’ to dairy and other junk foods.

After the talk, chefs from Paradigm Shift will teach attendees how to make raw vegan cakes and green smoothies.

If you’re attending the potluck for the first time, please do take a few minutes to read the following important information.

We will be meeting between 2 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. at Rani Park (lawn across the road from the Chinnaswamy Cricket Stadium, behind the Victoria statue, near the M G Road/Kasturba Road junction) and have the picnic spread there.

If you need further help, please send an email to bengaluruvegans@gmail.com with your contact number and we’ll contact you to guide you and provide information. If you are attending the potluck for the first time, we *strongly* encourage you to do this so that you don’t miss us at Cubbon Park. Please make sure that you email at least a day in advance.

1. *All* are welcome! :) You don’t have to be vegan to attend the potluck. You can join us even if you’re just curious about a vegan lifestyle or are interested to learn about veganism and its positive impacts.

2. Please bring one or more 100% vegan dishes to share.

3. It would be nice if you bring a vegan dish that you have prepared; however, if you are unable to cook, feel free to carry food that you have purchased.

4. If you’ve purchased any food, please make sure there’s an ingredients list on the package so we can be assured that it is vegan. Companies change the ingredients in their products somewhat often, so kindly be careful.

5. If you’re unsure about what to bring then the best bets are fresh fruits and fruit juices. Everyone appreciates fruits and juices. :)

6. Please bring plates, glasses, bowls, forks, spoons and water for yourself. Everyone brings their own.

7. We usually have about 15-20 people attending. Bring enough food for 5-6 people to eat well and that’ll be enough.

8. Come, relax, and enjoy the food and conversation!

Looking forward to meeting everyone. :)

You can expect us to be at Rani Park between 2 p.m. and 2:30 p.m.

“The Plastic Cow uncovers the ghastly truth about the impact of plastic waste on the innocent Indian cow, which is now reduced to being a scavenger.

The unholy alliance of plastic, carelessness and negligence is not only torturing the Indian cow to death but it has also infected farming communities, rivers, forests and oceans, killing elephants, donkeys, fish, turtles and sea birds.”
