Veganuary Plant Based 101 JHB

Fri Jan 10, 18:00 - Fri Jan 10, 21:30
Kaylee's Eatery


Plant Based 101 Johannesburg

In 2019, veganism made it into mainstream media with the help of documentaries like The Game Changers. So you’re trying to go more plant-based, but now what? What do you eat? Where do you get your protein from? How do you possibly navigate the supermarket?

We’re hoping to answer all of these questions and a lot more at our Plant Based 101 event, just in time for Veganuary. If you’re not yet on the plant-based train, that’s okay too! Our event is open to everyone interested in a plant-based diet and will be especially helpful to anyone taking the Veganuary pledge this January.

What can you expect at this fun and interactive evening?

·       Welcome drinks and multiple dishes of gourmet plant-based food.

·       An exclusive first taste of new Fry’s products. 

·       Nutritional advice from experts in the industry.

·       Answers to all your questions and myths around plant-based diets.

·       A shopping guide for new vegans.

·       Clever plant-based hacks for the kitchen.

·       Goodie bags filled with gifts and surprises to take home to the value of more than R450.
