Kyle Vialli who is arguably Europe’s Leading vitally Expert and Living/Food Pioneer, will dispel once and for all, the confusion and dismay that comes with the question “So what the Hell am I supposed to eat?”

Drawing from over 7 years of highly focused results-based research in the field of human nutrition, Kyle will reconcile the different arenas and systems that comprise the “nutritional maze” so as to guide us in making confident and empowered food choices for the rest of our enlivened lives.

Kyle will touch on the following

“Fruit!” “No Fruit!”

“Carb Loading!” “No Carbs!”…

“Sprouted Foods is ok, right?”…….

“Now I think someone once told me that this food on an empty stomach after noon is alright, or was that only if it I was blood type O!”…..

“Saturated fats or no fats at all, juiced or blended, hot or cold. To eat, or not to eat!”
Whether you have never studied nutrition, or whether you have been exploring the subject for decades, you will surely benefit from Kyle’s pioneering insights
“The purpose of nutrition is to fuel our lives, and the quality of our nutritional intake is highly implicated in the quality of our lives; it profoundly activates our ability to live our awaken”.

Simone Fougère an Internationally acclaimed DJ formerly of Kitchen Party fame is now taking up residency at our East Side Raw Parties and events. Simone has spun records for the past 11 years, based out of London and travelling to Ibiza, Europe, Costa Rica, New Zealand, Japan and the United States with her signature sound of cheeky, hip swaying, grooving baseline, percussion tinged house and techno that really connects to you on the dance floor and makes you smile. Her philosophy is simple; share the energy and love through music and connecting with others. For 6 years Simone was also one half of Sweet * Vicious (AKA Sweet Mayhem) with Brian Monaco, a duo that mixed live rock music and house music side by side in their unique sets. They also started the internet house party ‘Kitchen Party‘, which was huge on the underground techno / house scene in London. The concept was about having quality, groundbreaking DJs such as Reboot, 2000 and One, Giles Smith, Christian Martin, Glimpse, Alison Marks, King Roc, Will Smith, Berkson and What to name but a few….. around to their house (or kitchen) party for a DJ set, which they then filmed and shared the video on their website so the world could experience the music and party too. Prior to Kitchen Party, she held residencies at Match Bar and The End in London , UK and played all over the city in clubs such as Egg, AKA, Cargo, Fabric (NZ Night), Fluid, Retox @ Sosho, Inigo, Plastic People, Bridge and Tunnel.
Simone is currently working on a remix with Alison Marks from Dessous and has launched a new internet music project called the Universal Love Project
Her latest mix entitled ‘Love Inspired’ can be downloaded and streamed here

This is a brilliant new style of event for the growing number of Raw/Living fooders, Healthy, Eco Conscious Londoners.
