What a read! Healthy Eating, Healthy World by J. Morris Hicks makes the case for a startling revelation: by sustaining ourselves on a plant-based diet we are also sustaining the Earth. “To feed a person the typical Western diet (heavy with animal products) for a year requires 3.25 acres of arable land. To feed one vegan requires about one-sixth of an acre. Thus, with a vegan diet, you can feed about twenty people with the same amount of land that is required to feed one person with the typical Western diet.”
Nibblers NYC was created by yoga teachers Carrie Firestone and Rachael Grace, who said, “It is our goal to provide the best, most wholesome vegan treats in flavors inspired by the diversity and energy of the city and the bounty of the earth.” Learn more about these wheat-free, refined sugar-free, and totally yummy vegan treats!

PLANEAT: A FIVE-STAR REVIEW. Planeat is a remarkable documentary film: simple, elegant, and stunningly informative. Filmed, edited, and written by Shelley Lee Davies and Or Shlomi, Planeat presents the vegan lifestyle as the solution to the problems of survival as the Earth’s population grows, the climate warms, and chronic illnesses — heart disease, cancer, and diabetes — debilitate increasing numbers of people around the world. The film focuses on the scientists and physicians whose life’s work has revealed the nutritional and health-promoting advantages of a plant-based diet. Tantalizing shots of vegan culinary delights are woven into the narrative along with food prep demonstrations and recipe tips by vegan chefs.
