Cowspiracy: The Sustainability Secret

If you had to sit down and watch any factual documentary about the environmental crisis facing the world today Cowspiracy is a top choice. Backed by Executive Producer and Oscar winner Leonardo DiCaprio, this educational video will showcase all the reasons you should adopt a more natural vegetable based diet ASAP.

Basically animal agriculture is taking up too much forest space to grow crops to feed all the cows/animals we humans eat. Since humans can get all the protein they need from plant based foods, and the whole ‘eat meat for protein’ marketing-hoax has been exposed – there is nothing stopping you from adopting more vegetables, crops, roots, fruits, legumes, seeds, soy, rice, whey (the list goes on) into your diet right now in order to do your part to save the environment. Not to mention that eating a animal based SAD diet will give you cancer and heart disease pronto.

On the plus side, vegetarians are more lean, vegetarian bodybuilders and athletes are quicker to recover from injury, and eating vegan maximizes performance.

“Vegetarians tend to be leaner than meat eaters, even those who skin their chicken and trim the fat off their steak; and, in general, leaner persons tend to be healthier. Being lean does not mean being skinny. It means having a low percentage of body fat.” 

For those of you who like to run here is a list of vegetarian things to eat to maximize your run, and to see even more vegan success stories check out this link from Forks Over Knives!

In the effort to learn more about how food is made in USA, sooner or later readers will come across Forks over Knives. It’s hard to summarize the effect this documentary might have on the way you view food, or you discovering how the government and massive corporations have lied to American families about what certain foods will do to their health and life quality.

Not every viewer will walk away from the film and think that a plant-based diet is for them, but most will feel compelled to take a close look at the balance of their meal plan: How much meat and diary food are we eating today versus 50 years ago and what is it doing to the cancer rate in your community?

Eating Clean is a movement in this same direction: How and when should you swap a meal of heavily processed junk food for a home made meal with some vegetables? There is an excellent book on this topic from Reno as seen below.
