The plant-based diet has been touted by many health-conscious foodies in print, but this month’s VegFest 2013 will bring the debate to life, offering a full afternoon of tasting, product samples and in-the-know speakers. Local restaurants and businesses will share samples of their premium vegan products (be sure to catch Sweet Mangolias’ vegan cupcakes), while Whole Foods and Meijer teach attendees how to incorporate “green” living and cooking into everyday life. Training to run a race this spring? You won’t want to miss a lecture by Scott Jurek, a world-renowned ultra marathon champion (he ran 6.5 marathons in one day!), who’s been featured in The New York Times and CNN, about training and racing entirely on a plant-based diet. Sunday, April 21. 11am-5pm. $7/prepaid, $10/door, Free/5 and under. Suburban Collection Showplace, 46100 Grand River, Novi. 877-778-3464. vegmichigan.org —MO
