Plant-based fitness & well-being: how to live a healthy lifestyle as a vegan

In this talk I go over food choices, exercise, sleep and stress to help you understand how to live a healthy vegan lifestyle and achieve long-term sustainable results. With the personal actionable steps you will learn in the talk, you will become healthier, fitter and more body confident. As an online vegan health coach, I want to empower and educate people on how to make the best choices when it comes to all aspects of your health. If you are confused about misinformation in the fitness industry, unsure where to start with food or exercise, if you sleep poorly, are highly stressed and don’t know how to cope, or if you are simply frustrated with a lack of progress towards a fitness goal – then this talk is for you!

The most delicious home made Greek vegan food you will ever taste!


Delicious freshly cooked to order vegan hotdogs.


We are a new business in Manningtree selling vinyl (vintage and new) as well as imported vegan, organic wines. We will be offering small tastings of our wines at the stall and will be selling these per bottle.



Save The Asian Elephants is a not for profit pressure group of campaigners, politicians, lawyers and field experts committed to the protection and preservation of the brutally abused and highly endangered Asian elephant species. We work hard to raise public awareness of the terrible plight of these gentle creatures at the hand of Man, and to exert pressure on government and politicians to regulate the market and work with other countries to help the elephants, and on the commercial travel industry to stop sending tourists to unethical holiday “attractions”


Luxury, cruelty free and sustainable men’s accessories. We use a PU leather which is more than 50% BIO plant material from corn from renewable sources and our items are lined with a 100% recycled plastic bottles
