In hunt of a new documentary to watch I came across ‘GetVegucated’.

Now I haven’t had a chance to watch it (I missed the screening in NYC), but I wanted to share it with you straight away. Here is a small synopsis of what it is about:

Vegucated is a feature-length documentary that follows three meat- and cheese-loving New Yorkers who agree to adopt a vegan diet for six weeks. There’s Brian, the bacon-loving bachelor who eats out all the time, Ellen, the single mom who prefers comedy to cooking, and Tesla, the college student who avoids vegetables and bans beans. They have no idea that so much more than steak is at stake and that the fate of the world may fall on their plates. Lured with true tales of weight lost and health regained, they begin to uncover hidden sides of animal agriculture and soon start to wonder whether solutions offered in films like Food, Inc. go far enough. Before long, they find themselves risking everything to expose an industry they supported just weeks before.

WOW. This blew me away! Being a vegan and ‘New Yorker’ I can’t wait to see this transformation. I truly don’t think going ‘vegan’ is the answer or right thing, but being CONSCIOUS of what you are eating and where you are getting it from is important. In moderation of course, we all need to stay balanced and our mental health in tact., but I think this is a huge eye-opener and might be the path for some!

three people who share one journey and ultimately discover their own paths in creating a kinder, cleaner, greener world, one bite at a time.

Find a screening near you OR in 2012 host a screening! I know the OYL is going to host a ‘GetVegucated’ party potluck in the new year!
