Tu-No Salad Wraps

Tu-No Salad, Yummm!

Hi everyone,

Warm wishes to everyone out there in early February. I realize that much of the US is praying for spring while other parts of the world are experiencing some crazy weather as well. The “doubters” say that dramatic blizzards disprove the threat of “global warming”. The “global warming” folks have responded by rebranding “global warming” as “global climate change”. It’s all sounds like a bunch of PR nonsense that still leaves billions of people on this planet holding the bag for a handful of corporations that care only for short term profits with no consideration of how their unethical practices effect the rest of the planet. Recently I went to a screening of a documentary film entitled Climate Refugees.  The whole raw vegan tribe packed up and went out to a local theatre for a screening and Q and A session with a panel of specialists. The film has been hailed by critics and well received in the festival circuit. It’s basically a sequel to Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth. Refugees focuses on the peoples displaced by climate changes and the global impact it will have on different countries and the economy of the world. The film offers up some actions steps that we all can take but in the end it falls “conveniently” short just as An Inconvenient Truth did in not mentioning one of the biggest contributors to the erosion of a sustainable planet and the one easy solution that is within reach of every single person on the planet… The overlooked main offender is the meat and dairy industry. The Unite Nations spells out the oversight in there 2006 report entitled Livestock’s Long Shadow. Not a mention of “livestock” or “factory farming” in either of these acclaimed documentaries. What gives with such a blatant oversight? Are the filmmakers worried about upsetting the global corporations that profit from the demise of the planet and the demise of our health? Al Gore nostalgically highlights his families cattle farm in his film so you can see the origin of his oversight. What gives with the Climate Refugees crew? I find it hard to see people crusading for impoverished people and even suffering animals in far off places while eating a chicken sandwich telling you to drive a Prius. The activists seem to specialize themselves into a corner and forget that some of the simplest and cheapest solutions start at home and on their plate…

That brings us to the second glaring oversight: not a single mention of eating less meat as a action step. Reducing meat and dairy intake is the least someone can do and their effort can potentially be rewarded not only with a healthier planet but a healthier body and cleaner conscious. Sounds like a win, win, win scenario. If a person really puts their money where there mouth is… literally and figuratively, they GO VEGAN or at least vegetarian.  Believe it or not a vegan and especially a vegan raw diet, when done in an informed way, is the most transformative step a person can take in their life and it can potentially positively impact the entire planet. Switching out your light bulbs, riding your bike and installing weather stripping is great and all but it’s really just a way to pacify most people’s conscience. One day at a time, one meal at a time we all can transform this planet into the paradise it was meant to be…

Check out a couple fun videos. One is a music video I submitted to the “1 minute to change the world” contest. And the other is a tasty recipe for Tu-No Salad. I felt inspired to submit this music video after I saw submissions about cleaning up cigarette butts and turning off the water in the bathroom while you brush your teeth… all great ideas but when BP gushes 205 million gallons of oil into the Gulf of Mexico it’s going to take more than “jiggling the handle” to save ourselves from self destruction.

Love You! Keep it Live!
