Heading to Body & Soul?

Olly & his Big Blue Bus crew are on feeding duties for the weekend...


We all know it's hard to keep on track of mealtimes when in festival mode. Thankfully The Irish Times have put together a guide of the best way to keep yourself nourished this weekend.

The ethos, (or eathos should we say?) of food at Body & Soul is pretty simple, it's got to be organic, fairly traded and locally sourced where possible, so of course who better to provide the goods than some of our favourite Wicklow wanderers?
The Big Blue Bus will be slamming out their award winning pizzas, including those of the gluten free variety, and Greystones patriots, David & Stephen Flynn of The Happy Pear will also be in attendance converting vegetable haters one at a time. While you're at it you'll need to also try one of Sprout & Co's vegetable juices. As far as boutique juice brands go, these guys are on to a real winner.
For those who are genuinely looking forward to the food more than the craic, not altogether a bad thing, there'll be some cool foodie happenings taking place on the Wunderlust stage on Sunday too.
'Aoife McElwain will host a discussion on “Feeding your Body & Soul”, looking at how we can be kind to our bodies through what and how we eat. Aoife will be joined by Anne Marie Downey and Claire Gardiner of Kickstart, a programme that focuses on how what we eat affects our moods, energy and health. The Happy Pear, will also join the discussion with what they’ve learned from Happy Heart classes: crash courses in how to get healthy through what you eat.'
If that wasn't enough food related activity, the Festival Food Awards will also be taking place with John and Sally McKenna of McKenna’s Guides (You know the round silver plates hung up outside some of your favourite restaurants, but not always in yearly order for some reason? Them.)
Oh and we hear there'll be some music too!
