Vegan Summer Festival Berlin 2016

The vegan summer festival 2016 in Berlin was a blast! And I was lucky enough to be part of it. Let me share a few impressions from this weekend with you.

I went to the festival on Satuday and it was mainly for work that I went. However, I was able to snap a few pictures for my blog too and I even had the chance to grab a burger and a coffee in between “business meetings”. The vegan summer festival in Berlin is actually the biggest vegan festival in Europe! Yay for that 🙂

I had an amazing barley latte at the Le Pique-Nique when I arrived at the festival – question of getting some energy for the day, you know 😉 !?

Later on I had a tempeh burger at Reger Burger which tasted awesome. However, I am just not good any longer when it comes to eating fast food. The fat and the white flour make me feel tired and sick a while after eating. So even though the taste of the burger was great, I realized once more that I am made for clean and healthy food. I hope I will be able to remember that next time I get tempted by a “tempting tempeh burger”.

There were loads of booths with information about the vegan lifestyle, of course. I liked that the focus was not solely on animal rights but also on health. There was between others this huge picture of processed meat with a sticker saying “meat can cause deadly cancer” (which basically is a statement of the World Health Organization by the way). I wished these kind of stickers would be on every package of meat in the supermarket – like the stickers that you can find on the packaging of cigarettes (in many countries), you know!?

Oh, and I also got the chance to meet Germanys strongest man, Patrik Baboumian who happens to be vegan (yes, you can get all the protein you need through a vegan diet and yes, you can even become Germanys strongest man while eating a vegan diet).

Finally, I even got the chance to check out a few booths from small companies that I would love to work with for my blog! Like the Seifenmanufaktur Sauberkunst which is a 100% plastic free company! How cool is that? I hope I will be able to share more about they intersting soaps, shampoos and deodorants with you very soon 🙂

I was also amazed by beautiful Boerd Shoert which is an organic, fair AND vegan fashion label from Berlin. I totally fell in love with a beautiful floral dress and loads of pastel shaded shirts. By the way, I was thinking about sharing more fair and ethical fashion brands with you. I mainly wear second hand clothes these days but I think it may be a good idea to inspire those who are not really into second hand shopping, about where and why they can buy clothes without harming humans or animals. So be ready for that 😉

So that was it for this years vegan summer festival in Berlin. Do you like these kind of posts? I rarley ever posted something similar even though I actually attend quite a lot of trade fairs, festivals and markets. If you like I can take you with me more often!? Just let me know in the comments!

    Ach, was für schöne Impressionen! Ich muss ja ehrlich zugeben, dass ich es total verschwitzt habe! Wollte dir ja eigentlich nochmal Bescheid geben. Wir waren nicht da, hätten wir mal echt tun sollen…
    So ist das mit den Sieb-Gedächtnissen!

    Very interesting event, even though I’m not vegan I would love to go there, at least to check all of the great companies and to eat something yummy. Hmm, as far as I know, its processed meat which can cause cancer, like sausages or smoked ham and stuff. And of course meat from animals fed with some chemicals instead of grass or any other natural food. That what is unhealthy, but I can’t agree that pure meat from animal friendly farms is the same, I think it’s a big generalization. However, I know that every doctor, every dietician and every person has a different view on that, so I believe everyone has a right to speak their mind:) I would love to see more post about some kind of festivals or places like that, I love the pics and everything:) And about my last post – yes, all of that nutty goodness is mine:P I got it from one company and now I have to think about some nut butter recipes -actually they have to be vegetarian:) And I started to write my recipes in english because of my Instagram, and mainly because I want to reach more readers and to write with people all around the globe, I’m happy you liked it!:) Have a loveley week, hugs:)))

    Liebe Larissa, danke! So ein veganes Sommer Festival ist offenbar ein richtiges Erlebnis! Beeindruckt bin ich, dass dieser starke Mann sich vegan ernährt – einmal ein Beweis mehr, dass vegane Ernährung funktioniert. Und der Burger sieht vielleicht lecker aus, den hätte ich jetzt auch gerne 🙂
    Liebe Grüße, Rena

    This looks like such a fabulous and informative festival! That burger looks delicious but I, like you, struggle with the flour and fat aspect of them.

    Yes, I loved this post! I’ve never been to a vegan festival and I don’t think there’s anything of the kind where I live, but when I see them online the food always looks amazing! Really want to go to one some day 🙂

    This sounds like such a great event, girlie! There are indeed so many advantages of restraining from meat, especially processed, when it comes to one’s health and I do agree that it should be addressed more. To answer your question on my post, I’m 27, soon to be 28 at the end of next month, which I can’t believe! I’m a little excited, but want to hit a pause button, haha! Thanks so much for sharing, beauty, and I hope you’re having a great week so far!
