Recipe:
Autumn Pumpkin Chili

This recipe comes from Roli Roti’s friend Lauren O’Connor, a registered dietician, nutritionist, and yoga instructor! As we fall into fall, she’s shared a recipe using one of our favorite autumn ingredients: pumpkins!
Here’s what Lauren had to say:

This satisfying, veggie-ful Pumpkin Chili is a perfect choice for the fall. The balance of ginger, cumin and turmeric add warmth and earthiness to the dish; each containing anti-inflammatory, healing qualities. Sumac adds a tangy, zesty appeal. No onions, no garlic, no spicy peppers — no problem! This acid-watcher friendly dish provides the warmth and full-bodied richness of a zesty chili (without the fear for heartburn). So if you’ve got GERD, or chronic acid reflux, this one’s for you! (Just swap the bell peppers for chopped cooked rainbow carrots if they are are trigger food).

  • 1 cup celery, chopped
  • 1 Tbsp Grapeseed oil, divided
  • 1/4 tsp Herbamare Sea Salt with Vegetables and Aromatic Herbs, divided

Vegan Fashion Week Returns to Los Angeles in October

After the global success of the first edition in February, Vegan Fashion Week returns to Los Angeles from October 10-15th. Vegan Fashion Week has proven to be a historic event and is the leading ethical fashion movement in the world. This season’s theme, “Fashion is Activism,” will explore the challenges surrounding ecological and climate change through the lenses of fashion, creativity, ethics, ecology, science, technology, and legal practices.

The relationship between fashion, factory farming, and climate change cannot be ignored. Vegan sustainable fashion is the ultimate answer to climate change and waste pollution. I created an inclusive and collaborative movement dedicated to redesigning the industry and the consumers’ daily habits” says Vegan Fashion Week creator and animal rights activist, Emmanuelle Rienda.

The Second Edition will officially launch with an Awards Night & Fundraiser at the Theater at Ace Hotel on Thursday, October 10th, a night of celebration, music, and fashion with recording artist and actress Kate Nash. Celebrities and fashion industry leaders will be in attendance to support this conscious soirée designed to empower vegan creatives changing the industry, to raise funds to support the growth of the movement, and to work towards the recognition and protection of fundamental animal rights. Nominees include renowned vegans such as singer Miley Cyrus, actress Natalie Portman, and Kristen Stewart’s fashion stylist Tara Swennen. Creatives will be awarded in 8 categories including fashion design, furniture design, photography, modeling, and hair & makeup.

Following the opening soirée, industry professionals and fashion lovers are invited to the LA Fashion District to experience the Vegan World on October 14-15, the very first vegan fashion trade show in the world. This 50,000 sq. ft experience will take place in the penthouse of the California Market Center during the LA Market. The Vegan World promises to be an inclusive platform of education, discovery, and collaboration, showcasing an entirely cruelty-free experience from the fashion we wear, the beauty we put on our skin, and the food we eat. It encapsulates a world where ethics and trends intersect as a creative ode to the end of animal exploitation and a celebration of human evolution.

Highlights will include runway shows, a designer showroom with brands committed to embracing cruelty-free practices, a vegan lounge with delicious food options, the first vegan clothing swap, and experiential activations. Furthermore, the Vegan World will host the second edition of The Future of Fashion conference, which will feature designers, scientists, policymakers, and editors discussing the most critical issues facing the fashion industry and emerging alternatives. We will present a landscape of future materials and sustainable innovations such as lab-grown faux fur and plant-based alternatives to leather, wool, and silk.

This season’s partners and sponsors include the Ace Hotel, the California Market Center, LA Tourism, LA Fashion District, Miyokos, The Nonhuman Rights Project and thought-provoking online magazine LiveKindly, who focuses on sustainable and compassionate living.
