world peace diet reviewed & renewed

In which I say a lil about this phenomenal book, The World Peace Diet by Dr. Will Tuttle.

Order online at http://www.worldpeacediet.org
Kitten clip at the end.

*** from a review by Eve Spencer, Vegan Voice Magazine **
“The World Peace Diet is not a diet in the sense of a fad diet to lose weight, but the author illustrates clearly how the social, psychological and spiritual consequences of our meals “ripple through all aspects of our lives.”

“The book is systematically developed to reveal the connection between what we daily put on our plates, and peace in the world and in our lives. Some of the chapters covered include the power of food, the herding culture, the nature of intelligence, domination of the feminine, the metaphysics of food, science and religion, profiting from destruction, the journey of transformation, and in the final chapter—living the revolution—is ‘the last days of eating animal.'” …

One vegetarian at a time …

That’s how change happens.

I’m delighted to report that my beau of six months told me last night that he is committing, taking the first step and going to be a pesco-ovo-vegetarian (he’d already scrapped dairy after hearing a lecture by a vegan nutritionist)!  According to him, it’s a very logical decision and he’s approaching it from ‘mind over matter’ perspective. Next on his ‘to-read’ list: Animal Liberation by Peter Singer.

Slowly, one step at a time …

A few weeks ago my supervisor at work [who’s also a yoga teacher], committed to being vegetarian. We went grocery shopping together.

One step at a time.

My housemate/cousin told me yesterday that given the option for a chicken or vegetable dish, she opted for the vegetable dish.  She says how she feels better eating less meat and doesn’t crave it hardly anymore.

One vegetarian meal at a time!

I also met a lovely vegan gal at the art center this weekend. There were only 11 people in this group and 2 of us were vegan!  It’s so great to think what percentage of the population is now taking this easy step to alter their dietary & lifestyle choice for the benefit of their health, the planet, and of course, the non-human animals.

Slowly, it’s happening.  Consciousness is being raised.

Everyday I talk to people who are reducing their intake of animals & animal products, realizing how unecessary, wasteful and cruel it is.  I truly believe this is the way to a more peaceful, happy, healthful future.

I challenge you [readers] to take a 30-day pledge to go meat-free and see if you don’t feel better!  March is national meat-out month.  Just leave a comment and let me know if you’re taking this on …

Finally

 Finally someone at the New York Times put out a piece that talks some sense about the seriousness of our culture’s meat-guzzling addiction and its implications for the planet!! This is good to see in such a major media outlet.  Will people actually start talking about it? 

 

Read it here:     Rethinking the Meat-Guzzler  by Mark Bittman

 


For more straight talk about the meat industry and health, I’ve been picking up pieces of Skinny Bitch  by Rory Freedman and Kim Barnoui. It’s hilarious. And they pull no punches. I won’t quote it here b/c, quite frankly, the language is not kid-friendly and I don’t want to offend anyone.

 

The part I love about it is that this non-diet ‘diet’ book, which happens to a NYT Bestseller, doesn’t promise fab results with no effort (we all know that’s bullsh*t anyway) – guess what people – you need to work a little to transform yourself and your life! If you don’t face up to that fact, you are deluding yourself.

 

Seems like maybe some people in the mainstream media are waking up  

 

OK One more good read, that again, I’ve only been getting bits and pieces of (this book lives in my bathroom), is The Exception to the Rulers by Amy Goodman and David Goodman of Democracy Now.  Just go to their website.

 

 

Happy reading!!

 

Also, this post is open to discussion for the 90+ people I sent the article to. Please, feel free to comment!  I want to hear what you think!
