I would be skeptical of anything pushing canned frosting alone - it's usually got trans fat which is horrible for you. Thanks for the overview!
My thoughts exactly, Laurel! Just because it's vegan doesn't mean it's healthy....
Wow, very interesting. I haven't seen this movie, but I just might be checking it out. Thanks for the review! :-)
Yes, do! It's a good movie, and I think they bring up some good points.. I just wanted to point out some of the weak points in the movie too, so that people can go in with the information they need to make a well-informed decision.
I haven't seen the movie either. Thank you for sharing some of the details.
I agree with you because a lot of vegan foods are not heathy.
You're right, Marjory. I would argue that a grass-fed beef burger is healthier than a processed, chemical-laden veggie* burger, any day.
*Warning: May not contain actual veggies.
Frosting! Yikes…I've noticed that even white has dye in it and that is horrible.
I feel like that could be the inspiration for one of those FAIL memes.. White food with dye in it... Sounds like a fail food to me!
Great movie review. I had not even heard of Vegucated until today. I love meat so not sure how I would feel about this movie. I will have to see about watching it to form my own opinion!
It's funny, Marielle. I was a vegetarian for 12 years, but watched the movie only after going gluten-free, dairy-free and mostly paleo. I think that gave me an interesting insight into the movie.
I honestly don't think that meat is the culinary evil we've made it out to be all these years. I think that as long as you try to buy local, healthier meats paleo is the best starting point for most people to build their diets on.
I am a vegan and I have noticed that people think I eat anything as long as it's not meat. Lol. I haven't heard of that movie but I will look out for it
Sounds like you've got a good outlook on being a vegan then, Veronica! Be sure to check out this link, Denise Minger (the woman who de-bunked the China Study) offers some really solid advice for vegans:
Great post, thank you for visiting my blog.
I like point 3. I am vegan first & foremost for the animals, but not everyone is like me. I find I'm more successful in inspiring someone to try vegan if I focus on the health benefits and not guilt.
Likewise- thanks for stopping by!
Of course, my post is a little biased toward emphasizing the health implications of any diet, but I agree ;)
Of course! I only get asked questions about becoming vegan, but I try to answer in a responsible way!
I thought the scene where they dug through his freezer and threw away a rack of lamb was pretty tacky as well. They spent so long talking about the unnecessary waste of animal production, you'd think they'd be less wasteful with huge amounts of meat already prepared for human consumption
Wow, that's such a good point! Yes, it would have made more sense and been far more respectful to the animal if they had not wasted the food! Thanks for bringing this up.
Do you think that better nutrition and a new, holistic approach to your health could dramatically change your life?I do, too.
