This post is my contribution to Meatout, a grassroots food education campaign. Here’s a description from their website:
On (or around) March 20, thousands of caring people in all 50 U.S. states and two dozen other countries get active to host educational events for Meatout- the world’s largest grassroots diet education campaign. Activists distribute free food, educate their communities, and ask their friends, families, and neighbors to “kick the meat habit” and explore a wholesome, compassionate diet of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains.
I’m not a proselytizing vegan most of the time, but I do think this is an important effort. According to Wikipedia, “the production of protein from grain-fed animals requires eight times as much fossil-fuel energy as the production of plant protein.” Vegan food is delicious AND saves tons of energy.
On another note, this video has a very special guest star…my sister! We came up with a whole back story when we were filming so that we could get into character. See if you can figure out what it is…
