Making the Trade: Perceptions of Restriction in the Vegan Lifestyle: One common perception is that being vegan is a restrictive move and involves ‘giving up’ certain things. In this informative, accessible and humorous talk, author/nutritionist/podcaster/philosopher Sid Garza-Hillman calls this perception into question and makes the case that perhaps the opposite may be true. He covers nutrition, modern world stress, and much more!
