Sirius Fitness presents... The Invisible Vegan

**On the 4 Year Anniversary of "Sirius Fitness Day" in San Diego we presented the The Invisible Vegan...

On Sunday December 15th, Sirius Fitness, in conjunction with Live Well San Diego presented the documentary, The Invisible Vegan at Jackie Robinson Family YMCA. The Documentary was followed by a Panel of Nutritional Experts and an incredible Vegan meal.

What is the "Invisible Vegan"?  

"The Invisible Vegan is a 90-minute independent documentary that explores the problem of unhealthy dietary patterns in the African-American community, foregrounding the health and wellness possibilities enabled by plant-based vegan diets and lifestyle choices." 

This documentary was Co-Produced by Jasmine and Kenny Leyva and featured prominent celebrities such as Stic Man from Dead Prez, Comedian Cedric the Entertainer and NBA Champion John Salley. The documentary dealt with misconceptions, health benefits, history and more about Plant-Based diets in the African-American community. 

The Panel consisted of David Engel of Plant DiegoVegan Martial Artist, Charles Scot and was facilitated by Dr. Samira Jones (aka Dr. Sunshine Jones). They answered questions about their own personal journeys with a Plant-based diet, the effects, the challenges and overall general information. Dr. Jones was very informative with her background in Nutrition. The audience provided great questions for the panel that added much more to the discussion. 

The event concluded with an awesome Vegan meal consisting of Salad, Pasta w/ Vegan Sausage, Quinoa Salad and delicious Vegan Chocolate Chip cookies. Thank you Morse High School Culinary Department for providing the meal and thank you to our Sponsors for this event, Stepping Higher, Inc., Fit, Black and Educated and Plant Diego.

The 90-minute documentary is available to watch online through Amazon Prime and Vimeo.
