Vegan Update Eating Well in Shanghai

As I mentioned in my blog of March 28th,  I did commit to the 21 day Vegan challenge organized by Physician’s for Responsible Medicine.  I am half way through at this point and I have to say, it hasn’t been too much of a challenge.

I have figured out that I was eating vegan/vegetarian style already fror almost two of every 3 meals/day anyway and this is the biggest reason why the complete vegan lifestyle has been more of an inconvenience then a challenge.

With the exception of chocolate, I haven’t really missed eating anything in particular.  Not having cheese has made pizza and nachos a bit dry but other than that I have managed to feed my self better than ever and have not been hungry one day.  Do I feel better ?  I will let you know on day 22 !

In the next week Shanghai has plenty of opportunites for you to try eating vegan- style or raw style or  just eating well.

This weekend, Saturday April 21 The Market is back on at Jiashan Market , 550 Shanxi Nan Lu.  Go help yourself to a wide range of organics, smoothies and yummy cookies or just absorb the relaxing vibe over a hot cup of joe at the Melange Oasis.

On Sunday, April 22, join  The Wellnees Works and Slow Food Shanghai for a spring jaunt out to Chongming Island, the center of organic farming around Shanghai, for a tour of the Mahota Farm. For more information contact:

And finally, the raw chefs are back! I encourage everyone to experience a raw food event at least once.  You may not adopt the lifestyle but the food is delicious and the atmosphere delightful. On Tuesday April 24th, The Wellness Works will be hosting a raw food dinner party at the Melange Oasis Cafe. To learn more about this event contact:

So you have no excuse now not to Eat Well, Live Well and Have Fun this week !
