The documentary film, Eating Animals, begins with a simple question: where does our meat, eggs, and dairy come from? It then takes us on a eye-opening journey of today’s industrial animal agriculture.

Eating Animals, is a enlightening movie about the environmental, economic and public health consequences of factory farming in America. It is slated to hit theaters across the country this month. 

The film is produced and narrated by actress Natalie Portman, based on the best selling book by Jonathan Safran Foer and directed by Christopher Dillon Quinn.

It received high praises from film festivals across the country including a standing ovation at the 2017 Telluride Film Festival.

Director Christopher Dillon Quinn tells the story of factory farming through intimate narratives of farmers, breeders, and activists dedicated to bringing their trade and the way we eat back to its roots.

In today’s podcast, we discuss the making of Eating Animals and the state of industrial farming in America with the director Christopher Dillon Quinn.

In addition to Eating Animals, Christopher Dillon Quinn directed the award-winning documentary "God Grew Tired Of Us" about the lost boys of Sudan.

We also get to hear from the best-selling author behind the film,  Jonathan Safran Foer. Eating Animals is Jonathan’s third book.

A Los Angeles Times article stated that Eating Animals contains “the kind of wisdom that deserves a place at the table with our greatest philosophers.”

In a Huffington Post article, Natalie Portman claimed that the book was so compelling that she went from a twenty-year vegetarian to a vegan activist.

According to a piece by the New Yorker, the power of the book lies in its ability to discuss why humans can be so loving to their companion animals while simultaneously being completely indifferent to the ones they eat.

Eating Animals opens in theaters on June 15. You can find out cities and dates here.

Can what you eat determine how long and how well you will live?

Today we discuss fasting, aging and longevity with Dr. Valter Longo who has devoted his life to answering that very question.

What if I was to tell you that the best home remedies for chronic disease come from Mother Nature and may be sitting in your refrigerator right now?  

Though plant-based herbs and foods have been used for hundreds of years to heal, scientists are finally starting to substantiate plant’s abilities to reduce blood pressure, improve skin problems, fight coronary disease, improve symptoms of vertigo, enhance athletic performance and even help with hearing loss. 

Find out the foods that have these healing properties and how to include them in your everyday diet. It is easier than you think. 

More medicinal foods and their cures can be found here in podcast #14 - Ordinary Foods with Extraordinary Benefits.

Hope you enjoy Mother’s Nature’s healthy alternative to conventional medicine.

Today’s flavor-packed, hearty, gluten-free, vegan burger recipe made with beets, quinoa, and black beans can be found here. 

As discussed in today’s podcast, many people in the wellness world are turning to cannabidiol, commonly referred to as CBD, for its potent anti-inflammatory and anti-anxiety effects. 

In 2018, after two years of research, I launched my first product - Ordinary Vegan plant-based CBD Oil from Hemp.  My fact-finding, research, and testimonials from our vegan community proved to me that this natural food supplement could help people with anxiety, depression, migraines, arthritis, neuropathy, and chronic pain, and that excited me because all I want to do is help people feel their best.

Most of my podcasts are centered around nutrition and the value of a plant-based diet to help you live a long, healthy life, but today I want to get back to the basics. 

When you first begin experimenting with a plant-based diet, it can be confusing. What are the essentials to buy? How do I  properly cook those essentials? And what foods are needed to keep your family healthy and energized?

Those topics are also helpful for anyone who has been practicing a vegan diet for some years because slowing down and re-evaluating how we do things can improve our approach to a plant-based lifestyle.

In today’s podcast, we learn what vegan essentials we need to stock and techniques to properly cook those essentials.  

We also explore cooking with fresh and dried herbs.

Herbs add flavor and brightness to any meal but maximizing that flavor is something that most of us have never been taught. In this podcast, we will learn the difference between delicate and hardy herbs and how to store, prepare, and cook with those herbs. 

Last but not least, today we visit Ordinary Vegan’s kitchen not once, but twice and create two of my favorite breakfast recipes; Vegan Fried Egg with a runny center and my favorite Mediterranean Vegan Omelet. 

There is much to cover, so this will be Part-1 of my series on vegan cooking. Please make sure you come back for more.

With the sharp rise in dementia and other brain disorders, it is vital to do everything we can to prevent brain disease. In this week's podcast, we learn brain disease symptoms and how to grow healthy brain cells for extra protection.

Many people understand the importance of having a healthy body, but many overlook the value of brain health. The human brain is an exceptional and complex mechanism, and we need to treat it with the utmost respect.

Brain scientists in recent years have discovered a number of surprising ways our brain affects our overall health. Some scientists even believe we have the ability to grow healthy neurons.

Today, we explore all the possibilities of cranial fitness to help you live a long, healthy, cognitive life.

We also go into Ordinary Vegan’s kitchen and make a recipe to keep your brain free of toxins.

Researchers have found that adopting a vegan diet for diabetes has the potential to prevent and even reverse Type 2 diabetes. A healthy plant-based diet could also help improve symptoms for anyone suffering from the many types of this disease.

And one of the best ways to manage diabetes is to learn as much as you can about your condition.

Diabetes is now a disease that affects 371 million people worldwide, and 187 million of them do not even know they have the disease, according to the International Diabetes Foundation.

People who have diabetes can have numerous challenges. Including not knowing what to eat and conflicting nutrition information.

If you don't have diabetes, please note that the US National Library of Medicines predicts that the prevalence of diabetes will increase by 54% between 2015 and 2030, so many people are at risk. It is never too early to protect your body from becoming pre-diabetic.

Symptoms of pre-diabetes are easy to miss. This stage is referred to as the "grey area." Without drastic lifestyle changes, people with pre-diabetes could progress to full-blown diabetes. The scary thing about this type of diabetes is that it may have no signs or symptoms, and you won't find out unless you have a blood test.

Type 2 diabetes is the most common diabetes, and over 85% of people with diabetes suffer from Type 2. This type is considered a lifestyle disease and associated with the way a person lives. The main factors contributing to lifestyle diseases include diet, nutrition, lack of exercise, and drug or alcohol abuse.

With that said, it doesn't mean it's your fault that you have this disease. We have been duped by food advertising, food pyramids, food trends and misguided information about diet and food.

In today's podcast, I will share what's new in diabetic research and what it means to you. You will learn how to make nutrition therapy a part of your treatment plan. Including a list of superfoods that may help you prevent and even reverse your type-2 and pre-diabetes. We will also explore if a vegan diet for diabetes is the right diet for everyone.

Join me in Ordinary Vegan's kitchen and prepare a rainbow chard superfood recipe for people with diabetes.

Americans alone, increased their seafood consumption to 15.5 pounds of fish and shellfish per person in 2015. Up nearly a pound from the previous year, making it the biggest leap in seafood consumption in 20 years.

Overfishing has been created by advanced fishing technology and an increased demand for fish. This has caused several marine species to become extinct or endangered. 

The seafood business is also valued at billions of dollars, and when that much money is at stake, people can become very greedy. 

Fishing vessels as big as cruise ships troll the waters and have the ability to fish four times more fish than ever before.

Some scientists are predicting that seafood will eventually run out because of the global loss of seafood species. 

In todays podcast, we break down how overfishing impacts human lives, and why it is everyone’s problem. 

We also discuss fish toxicity and which high mercury fish to avoid. 

Last but not least, is fish a healthy food to consume?

Menopause is a natural period in the life of every woman.

Today we learn the common symptoms of menopause and key foods to help and even eliminate menopausal symptoms. 

The earlier you make sure these foods are staples in your menopause and perimenopause diet, the more manageable menopause and the years beyond will be.

Flu season is on track to be the worst in nearly a decade. The CDC (Centers For Disease Control & Prevention) has reported that there have been over 56,000 flu-related deaths, 710,000 people hospitalized and 16 million who sought care from a clinician or hospital so far this season. 

Many doctors and researchers are scratching their heads about why there are so many viruses and trying to combat the flu involves a fair amount of guesswork. 

On today's podcast, we discuss a common food additive called trehalose that has been making headlines because of some recent scientific evidence.

What scientists found out is that pathogens like a virus, bacteria or fungus in our body, can be boosted by this additive and might be driving the rise of one of the most aggressive superbugs. 

We also discuss the best food to consume during flu season and to fight infections anytime of the year. 

Ordinary Vegan also shares her soup recipe that can help combat the flu, common cold and infections.

Many people in the wellness world are turning to cannabidiol, commonly referred to as CBD, for its powerful anti-inflammatory and anti-anxiety effects. But as its popularity grows so doesn’t the confusion and misconceptions about this plant-based oil. 

About a year ago I decided to take a long hard look at CBD oil and its health benefits. I must admit in the beginning I was skeptical because I didn’t see enough sound scientific proof. 

Well, a lot has changed in a year, and there are now many more studies and compelling personal stories about the health benefits of CBD.

In today’s podcast, we break down what exactly is cannabidiol is, the health claims and the vast difference between the hemp plant and the marijuana plant. 

You will learn how cannabidiol  (CBD) works in the human body and the surprising ways it affects the human anatomy. 

We will also discuss many of the studies linking CBD oil as a potential treatment for epilepsy, inflammation, neuropathic pain, migraines and anxiety disorders like panic disorder, anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder, depression and post-traumatic stress disorder.
