I’ve been researching and reading things about food for a while now. Anyone that knows me personally knows I’m a documentary junky. I’ve seen documentaries about any and everything. A while back I saw a documentary called Sick, Fat, and nearly dead. It’s a documentary about restoring your health through juicing. Joe Cross goes on a sixty day juice fast to reboot his system. “In this documentary he trades in the junk food and hits the road with juicer and generator in tow, vowing only to drink fresh fruit and vegetable juice for the next 60 days”(Imdb, 2013). This was the documentary that started it all. It created a domino effect for me. One food documentary led to another and another. I just kept watching them, and finding out more and more about the food industry. The latest food documentary I watched is called “Vegucated”. A woman recruits a few people to go Vegan for six weeks, and takes them on a journey to show them what really goes on in the food industry; I must say was disgusted, and I still am. I had to stop the documentary a few times; I almost regurgitated everything I ate that morning. The things they do to animals to prepare them for human consumption is extremely horrible, and cruel. I read a book recently called Vegan Before Six also called VB6 by Mark Bittman a while back. It’s basically a book about being a part time vegan. It was very informative, and I learned a lot from it. I plan on going back to read it again. I’m also doing some research on meat substitutes. I have research quite a bit and waited long enough. That’s where I’ll start for now. It’s time for a change.
