Vegucated follows three meat and dairy loving New Yorkers who all agree to adopt a plant based diet for 6 weeks. The movie is fun, yet doesn’t minimize the subject matter. Kudos to Marisa Miller Wolfson for creating this film, and for her new cookbook & guide on how to raise vegan  children called “The Vegucated Family Table”.

From Food To Freedom

In some respects, From Food to Freedom is an ordinary documentary on the remarkable health benefits of plant-based nutrition. What makes the film exceptional are the moments when it briefly addresses the gigantic elephant in the room, which is the connection between Plant-Based diets and COVID-19. Why is it that at the height of the pandemic, the CDC (US government), encouraged people to wear masks, and wash their hands, but made zero mention of the power of plant-based nutrition (even though The British Medical Journal published a study showing that people who ate a plant-based diet reduced their chances of moderate to severe symptoms of COVID-19 by 73%)? It would have been great if the documentary had spent more time on this subject, but it veered back to its main purpose of showing how, through a 10 day immersion program, a whole food plant-based diet can effectively treat, and reverse Type 2 Diabetes (a common underlying condition for COVID-19 deaths). Amazing stuff, but nothing new for many “plant-based” viewers. Still, From Food to Freedom is an excellent film, and I appreciated its honesty, and how it followed up after 6 months with each of the film’s participants for some surprising discoveries.

The Elephant Whisperers

Humans represent less than 0.02% of all living things, yet we have caused the loss of 83% of all wild mammals, and half of plants, due to our destructive food choices, and other reckless actions. The Academy Award winning film, The Elephant Whisperers, follows Bomman and Bellie, a couple who devote their lives to caring for orphaned baby elephants. Their home is the beautiful Mudumalai National Park, in Southern India, which serves as a sanctuary of sorts for endangered Asian elephants, tigers, and other species. The cinematography is gorgeous, and although I was left with a few unanswered questions, the film offers powerful and inspiring ideas. In one sequence, Bellie says proudly, “We live off the forest, we also protect it. We don’t take anything more than we need.” I love that quote, and it reminded me of a Native American term called “Wetiko”, which can be used to explain the concept that nothing in nature takes more than what it needs. “The well being of the forest is all that matters. We walk barefoot within it. This is our way of showing respect to it”, adds Bomman. Bellie and Bomman seem authentic in every way, and I found myself enjoying the ride, and believing that the elephants really are their family. Learn More.
