Videos: Colleen Patrick-Goudreau Speaks At 2011 San Francisco Veg Fest
On World Vegetarian Day 2011 (October 1st) I attended the San Francisco Veg Festival, which was a really lovely event despite its small size. The highlight was easily a talk by Colleen Patrick-Goudreau, a well known vegan author, speaker and all around advocate. After all the buzz around her talk at the Vida Vegan Bloggers Conference in Portland, I knew I had to record her SF lecture so I could share it with you. It was about 50 minutes in length, but I went through and edited it down to 3 segments totaling 24 minutes so that it'd be easier to watch.
In the first video Colleen talks about vegan nutrition, highlighting myths and offering up lots of interesting facts and perspectives. The second video summarizes some common excuses on why people say they can't go vegan, which Colleen negates. And the last video is about the social aspects of veganism - how to stand up for your beliefs and stay true to your values despite the differing opinions of others. Enjoy!
