Welcome to my new monthly moodboard; I’ll be sharing my favourite things with you each month. It’ll be a place for you to discover new books, recipes, ideas, podcasts etc. I hope to give you some motivation and excitement for the month without the need to necessarily buy loads of stuff!
August: Sunshine, Outside, Barefoot, Smiles, Late Nights
Vegan Camp Out 2019
August 30th – September 1st at Newark Showground in Nottinghamshire.
It’s a big vegan festival! Lots of yummy vegan food, talks and activities. It’s only £45 for a ticket and there’s so much on offer to do! This is my first year going and I’m looking forward to all the delicious food and meeting new people. If you want to see more about the festival or book your own ticket, just head to their website.
Once Upon A Time In Hollywood…
The new film by Quentin Tarantino is out this month! As a huge Tarantino fan I’m super excited. With a whole host of incredible actors (Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie, etc,.) I’m sure many are looking forward to it! I don’t really know too much about it and I kinda don’t want to!
The Uninhabitable Earth
This is an important book. If you read one book this month – make it this book. I’m not going to lie; it’s a difficult read but it is an important one. Sometimes we have to face the uncomfortable stuff. This books is a bleak and dark, yet somewhat optimistic, look at the future of the Earth with the climate changes we are currently living with. David Wallace-Wells* does an incredible job of making this overwhelming topic more accessible and understandable. With the crazy weather we’ve been experiencing more and more this year we need to look at the facts of what we could soon be facing if we want to help our beautiful planet, and future generations, survive.
Don’t Salt My Game
Podcast hosted by Laura Thomas PhD all about nutrition and intuitive eating. Laura is very clear and direct in the way she speaks making complex issues much more approachable and easier to understand. I’ve been listen through the back catalogue of her podcasts over the past few months and I really recommend it to anyone with an interest in nutrition and, particularly, diet culture.
Laura also has a book Just Eat It: How intuitive eating can help you get your shit together around food*. It’s a great introduction to the world of intuitive eating and can really help you to understand the impact media and our past experiences have on us and our relationship with food. There’s some great exercises to work thorough which help bring some insights into your relationship with food and your body.
