H.O.P.E. What You Eat Matters

A new documentary by Nina Messigner is set to hit screens across America. Titled, “H.O.P.E. What You Eat Matters”, the former an acronym for Healing of Planet Earth, this film showcases how we can improve our personal health, the health of the planet, and reduce industrialized cruelty to animals by embracing a vegan diet.

“H.O.P.E. What You Eat Matters” is a life-changing documentary uncovering and revealing the effects of our typical Western diet on our health, the environment, and animals.

Note: Content may not be suitable for younger children. Applicable German youth protection rating: FSK-12 (not suitable for audiences younger than 12 years)

Featuring Jane Goodall, T. Colin Campbell, Caldwell B. Esselstyn, Vandana Shiva, Melanie Joy and many other experts, the film has a clear message: By changing our eating habits, we can change the world!

Jane Goodall

Renowned primatologist Dr. Jane Goodall features in the documentary and discusses the film’s message: “I think the most important message that I have, is to remember, that you as an individual make a difference,” she says.

The China Study

Author of the popular book “The China Study”, T. Colin Campbell says it is important for people to understand there is a strong correlation between the Western diet and diseases. Westernized diets typically consist of an abundance of animal products, fried food, takeaways, and additives, with a lack of fresh produce – a combination considered to be par optimal in terms of health, leading to a multitude of problems.

Due to an increased affinity with Western-style diets and a food system falling into a dangerous predicament, this documentary aims to be a turning point for people who intend to live devoid of serious health scares and preventable death. The documentary is described as “a life-changing documentary uncovering and revealing the effects of our typical Western diet on our health, the environment and animals. It has a clear message: By changing our eating habits, we can change the world!” 

Dr. Neal Barnard

“This film can save your life,” said Dr. Neal Barnard of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine. “Take its lessons to heart, and take control of your health. Choosing a plant-based diet will be the best decision you´ve ever made.”

The film notes “[s]ince the beginning of mankind cruelty to animals, it has never been as prevalent as it is in our days.” Contrary to what may be perceived, this relates solely to the extreme conditions of cruelty farmed animals endure, for the sake of satiating the palates of the masses.

Paul McCartney

Vegetarian musician Paul McCartney even shares his sentiment “[t]his important films highlights the choices we must make to help protect this planet and all its inhabitants.”

Me, my wife, and 13-year old all converted to plant-based eating overnight, after watching the 1.5 hour documentary called, “What the Health” Regardless of what debunkers may say and think about this documentary, I can tell you from 8 months of living plant-based daily that we have all not only lost weight and fat, but we all feel amazing.

Appetite isn’t as abundant (when we were eating sugary foods and meats). We just feel overall healthier. It wasn’t that hard to drop all the meats and sugary foods. As long as you maintain discipline, self-control, and focus on the vision it all comes together with ease. For me, my cholesterol went from 200 to around 110.

My wife’s diabetes (type 1) is much more controlled. And my son, who suffers from MG, has experienced significant improvements in health. So much that his doctors are seeing break-through improvements and even took him off medications, of which he was prescribed to be on for the rest of his life.

For 10-years my son would take these medications every 2-hours daily (but not while asleep). For our family going plant-based has truly-truly impacted our lives in so many ways that I cannot list them all. At the end of the day, if we don’t have our health in check, then what is the point in planning long-term when the clock is ticking (that’s metaphor).

Our lifestyle isn’t just plants, it contains many types of seeds, nuts, beans, and whole wheat. It also includes plenty of Almond Milk (if we’re in the mood for it, or is needed for a recipe).

We only get one 1 life and body, so make the best of your temple!

  • Thank you! For making me vegetarian. I’mfeelingn so bad right now for all the animals. – Anjee K
  • Awesome documentary. So glad to be vegan – Elaine Webb
  • What an awesome documentary! I have been vegan for over a year now and I so look forward to continuing on this peaceful and healthy path. Every person on the planet should watch this.  – Tracy Morrison
  • My family and I went plant based a few months ago for health benefits and my goal to lose over 100 pounds. I had no idea animals were treated so terrible. The part that bothered me most was when they ripped the testicles out of the piglets and cut off their tales, no sedatives …. nothing. Only strengthens my drive to eat plants. – Ex Life
  • After watching this today i through everything out of my kitchen and felt so sorry for those animals the whole world should come to an agreement to stop killing these animals for our own desires and we don’t get anything out of it except diseases that put our life into risks. – Yaz Ali

Vegan Bolognese Recipe

Vegan Bolognese Recipe

 

Did you know that you could create pasta in a pressure cooker? I didn’t, but our friend Nisha does. She has created an incredibly beautiful, delicious, easy-to-make pasta bolognese recipe. It’s easy. It looks delicious and it cooks in just 5 minutes. Well, that’s the amount of time it takes the pasta to cook, there is a little bit of prep work involved, but it all cooks inside the Instant Pot pressure cooker. Really easy, really delicious.

The Instant Pot pressure cooker looks like a great tool for the kitchen, but it suffered a bit of a setback just yesterday; the pot has been recalled:

Instant Pot is recalling one of its pressure cooker models because it can pose a fire hazard.

The distributor has received 107 reports of the Gem 65 8-in-1 multicooker overheating, including five instances when it caused minor property damage, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.

No injuries have been reported.

The recall is for Gem 65 8-in-1 model with batch-codes of 1728, 1730, 1731, 1734 or 1746 printed on the rating label underneath the multicooker.

The Instant Pots, which cost approximately $80, were sold exclusively at Walmart stores across the country and at www.walmart.com between August 2017 and this past January.

People who own these Gem 65 8-in-1 multicookers are advised to immediately stop using them and unplug them. They may be returned to Walmart for free replacements.

“The overheating is the result of a tooling misalignment during the manufacturing process, which created a gap between the bottom of the inner pot and the top surface of the heating plate in the product. This gap can cause the multicooker to overheat and melt on the underside, posing a fire hazard to consumers,” Double Insight, the Ottawa-based importer, and distributor of the multicooker said on its website.

That said, there are many other such pressure cookers available on Amazon which have not been subject to any recalls.

Further, WireCutter reviewed a variety of pressure cookers and their favorite:

The Instant Pot IP-DUO60 is our overall favorite if you’re looking for a super-easy pressure-cooking experience. It’s simple to use and will turn out delicious meals in a fraction of the time conventional cooking requires—you can cook black beans from scratch in 20 minutes, for example. Compared with other electric models, it has more heat settings, and it sautéed our onions better (none of the electric models brown meat all that well). As a multi-cooker, this pot can also function as a slow cooker and a rice cooker (which it did okay, but if you’re a rice snob we prefer our rice cooker pick). If the 6-quart version is sold out, consider the 3-quart or the 8-quart model.
