Have you ever watched a vegan documentary and been so sickened and repulsed that you decided then and there to go vegan?
I know I have. And I was vegan for many years until my health fell apart.
While it’s evident that factory farming isn’t the answer, the politically-charged vegan agenda isn’t either.
As I shared in Episode 50, I’m deeply committed to asking big questions about food sustainability and its impact on our health.
So today, I’m sharing an in-depth conversation with James Connolly, the producer of the documentary Sacred Cow.
James Connolly is an artist, chef, non-profit founder, and documentary film producer with Archer Gray Productions. He co-founded The Bubble Foundation, a non-profit focused on issues of wellness and food insecurity in inner-city public schools.
James’ most recent film is Sacred Cow: The Nutritional, Environmental and Ethical Case for Better Meat, directed by Diana Rodgers.
Listen to the full episode to hear:
- The development of industrialized agriculture in response to the real need to feed more people, and the consequences to nutrition and climate that we live with today
- Why we have to talk about race in the history of farming and agricultural policy in America
- What the animal welfare movement gets right about industrial agriculture and why highly-processed plant-based foods aren’t the answer
- How the rebranding of vegan to plant-based by massive corporate interests impacts our food system and nutrition
