Jane Goodall and Alec Baldwin discuss importance of Plant-Based Diet

This year’s Global Climate Action Summit in San Francisco got pretty heated (no pun intended). Between California Governor Jerry Brown calling President Donald Trump a “liar, criminal, fool” and protestors rallying outside against fossil fuel extraction, despite the governor signing into law the state’s commitment to 100 percent clean energy by 2045 this week, the event was certainly not lacking in high emotion.

But on a cooler note, actors Harrison Ford and Alec Baldwin and everyone’s favorite primatologist, Jane Goodall, were also present at the Summit, and Baldwin and Goodall sat down for a chat on the importance of plant-based diets in regards to forests and the fight against climate change.

And although a primatologist and an actor may seemingly have little in common, the two celebrities have one very important commonality — they are advocates for the environment and promote ditching meat for the sake of the planet.

Goodall and Baldwin both ditch meat from their diets and credit environmental concerns as reasoning for it.

Animal agriculture is a leading contributor to climate change, being responsible for more greenhouse gas emissions than the entire transportation sector (cars, planes, trains, etc.) combined. In fact, a recent study revealed that animal agriculture is more harmful to the environment than fossil fuel extractors like Shell and Exxon Mobil. . .

If everyone adopted a plant-based diet, then yes, we could certainly meet the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement and keep our planet’s temperature from rising those two more dangerous degrees. Read more at One Green Planet »

Plant-Based Diet vs Vegan Diet

What’s the difference? A big one. We are grateful of course that both Goodall and Baldwin have “ditched meat” from their diets, but please let us not confuse what these two diet types — plant based and vegan — are about. These diet regimens are not interchangeable.

“Vegans abstain from eating any animal products. A whole foods plant-based diet, on the other hand, emphasizes eating whole fruits and vegetables, consuming lots of whole grains, and staying away from (or at least minimizing) the intake of animal products and processed foods for health reasons.” SeeThere’s A Big Difference Between A Plant-Based Diet And A Vegan Diet“, Huffington Post, By Julie R. Thomson, 22 June 2017.

What does a plant-based diet or a vegan diet have to do with horses? Horse meat. If people were to give up horse meat and quit eating it, there would be no horse slaughter which would put an end to all of the horrendous cruelties that go with it.

But as you can see by definition you could eat a plant-based diet yet still garnish a meal with a serving of horse meat. So we say. Go vegan. For life!

Thank you.

Meet the Vegan burger that may change the world as we know it

Impossible Burger. Made with Plants.

Cross-posted from One Green Planet

Just looking at that burger picture makes me feel sick to my stomach. I eat veggie burgers because I want the veggies in a fun and easy way — not because I want a replacement for a hamburger. Still, this will appeal to a great many people and therefore save a great many lives, so I am all for it. —Ed.

It’s been over a year since Impossible Foods first revealed plans for the Impossible Burger, a plant-based meat patty that cooks, smells, tastes, and even “bleeds” like real meat.

Now, the company is finally ready to roll out their impressive product. Unlike the folks over at Beyond Meat, who have recently launched their own meaty Beast Burger in grocery stores, Impossible Burger will make its debut in restaurants, starting in San Francisco, Los Angeles, and New York this July.

The Impossible Burger aims to emulate meat in a way no other plant-based patty has before. While some other burgers turn to veggies as a light, nutritious base, the Impossible Burger goes slightly more scientific with their approach. They simulate beef fat with coconut oil, use potato proteins to create that familiar crust that meat forms when it is seared, and use “heme,” a compound extracted from yeast that gives color to red meat. The result? A burger so realistic, it almost gives you that uneasy “uncanny valley” feeling, primarily felt when viewing robot androids.

Impossible Foods isn’t just trying to revolutionize food just for the sake of taste, though. Their meatless beef burger contains more protein than a regular burger, without the cholesterol, hormones, or antibiotics. This essentially gives consumers the taste they crave in a much healthier form, something that could have an amazing impact on public health, and could help tackle the obesity and heart disease epidemic in the U.S. and around the world.
