From vegan sausage rolls to plant-based diets, growing numbers of people are choosing to alter how they eat.
And as vegan and plant-based ways of eating continue to gain in popularity, there is increased interest in diets which minimise processed and refined foods.
Twins and renowned wholefood and plant-based chefs David and Stephen Flynn will share their message about healthy eating at a special evening lecture at Teesside University.
The twins, also known as The Happy Pear, will present a talk on Monday 4 March, from 5.30pm to 7.00pm, in the University’s Centuria Building, Room H0.01.
The award-winning authors and YouTube stars aim to make a healthier lifestyle accessible to all, while encouraging people to eat more vegetables.
The twins’ latest book, Recipes for Happiness, became a bestseller in their native Ireland within three days of release and debuted in the top 10 bestseller list in the UK. Recipe for Happiness includes a range of vegan and vegetarian recipes, along with a section devoted to their philosophy on happiness.
The Happy Pear has branded food products, cafes and wholefood stores. David and Stephen are presenting their talk as part of a wider University event taking place earlier in the day, when local schoolchildren will be involved in workshops to promote a healthy lifestyle.
The Happy Pear evening talk is open to members of the public. The twins will speak for around one hour, followed by a short Q&A.
