Event Description

Please join us for the Change Your Mind Change What Matters Lunch & Learn Movie Series.
Relax and leave lunch to us, as we uncover secrets that will help you take one of the most powerful steps you can to improve your health, boost energy levels, and help prevent chronic diseases: transitioning to a plant-based diet. You’ve likely come across scientific literature that shows changing your nutrition is a powerful way to improve your health and help the environment. You may be thinking that moving to a plant-based diet sounds like a great idea, but you don’t know where to start. Don’t worry — learn the tools, insight, and expertise to make the change easy and enjoyable. This dynamic movie series will answer your questions, provide helpful advice, and share the techniques you need. And the best part is that we can do it together. You won’t have to do it alone.
Vegucated (2011) explores the challenges of converting to a vegan diet. It follows three meat- and cheese-loving New Yorkers who agree to adopt a vegan diet for six weeks. The documentary addresses the resistance that some people feel towards vegetarianism and veganism, the disconnect between farm animals and the purchasing of meat, the origins of omnivorism, and the ethical, environmental, and health benefits of a vegan diet. During filming, participants visited an abandoned slaughterhouse and investigated the reality of intensive animal farming in the U.S. Of their own accord, they chose to trespass on a factory farm to see for themselves, and became passionate about their new-found cause.
