Earlier this week my email forwarding dad sent out one titled “Old ads that wouldn’t be allowed today.” I had to look. And I have to admit, a couple made me chuckle. Since this is a blog about food and health, I thought I’d pass along the ones along that theme plus a few others I found. You could say a few things have changed since these were put out.

Confused For, and By, Vegans Once Again

by Brad

It happened again last week. We’re at an event where food’s involved. We try to be really mellow about without saying a word as we load our plates with plant-based food and skip the meats and creams.

We’ve decided to unpack our bags and put away our suitcases…for now.  We’re in Austin, Texas, and people are starting to ask why we slowed the travel and how we chose Austin. From what we’ve seen of the world, there may be very few places around the globe that are as friendly to the clean […]

One thing that is amazing to us as we settle back in here in the States is our unlimited ability to choose…especially when it comes to food. In America we have created some of the worst food known to man, and we’ve spread that garbage to other cultures as well. However, in America, when you want it and look for it, you can find the absolute best (meaning healthy) food options in the world.

Movies are one of the most useful “tools” to help people understand how important their diet is, both to themselves and to the planet.
