September Blog

We spent  the month of  September preparing for our first “Hello” to the market place, thats right many years of work on Blendi Snacks & then you have to  shout “Jump” knowing that you are not 100% prepared.  We chose the Dublin Vegfest to do what is known in the Entrepreneur World as a “soft launch” it means you still have time to go back to the kitchen  and do some tweaking in preparation for the hard launch that will follow. 

The Dublin Vegfest was packed mixing with other like minded food entrepreneurs and of course our vegan friends  who share our advocacy in  consuming plant-based foods. Is it just me or have you noticed the amount of celebrities recently who have  switched to eating less meat & more vegetables  for various reasons  some animal rights, environmental but mainly overall health.

Venus Williams

To combat her autoimmune disorder, Venus has  adopted a raw vegan diet, and put the change in her diet as the reason she could return to Tennis this year.

Lionel Messi

Adheres to a strict diet of whole grains, fresh fruits, and vegetables, he has also reduced  his intake of sugar and refined flour and gave up pizza, one of his favourite foods, 🙁

Ariana Grande

The No Tears Left to Cry singer professed that she loved animals too much to eat them and she believed that a whole food plant-based diet is the key to longevity and happiness. 

Whatever the reason I  hope they continue to use their status to influence more people  to adopt a healthier and kinder lifestyle.
