THE FOOD REVOLUTION
For the last tow days, I have been running around with my headphones on. I had them on before going to sleep, in the car, during lunch break, while fixing school lunches and dinner…. Usually, i am not like that- I like to focus on one task and try to enjoy it. I read somewhere that you should always have a positive attitude even when doing chores that you’d rather not do- like cleaning or, even worse, ironing! because you are actually doing something for your loved ones. And I have to say, it does work, for the most part at least (not so much when ironing…).
Does the name ring a bell? He is the son of Irma Robbins and Baskin- Robbins co-founder Irv Robbins. Instead of following his dad’s footsteps, he left the company and switched over to the other side. He become an author and activist, who popularized the links among nutrition, environmentalism, and animal right (Find out more about him on his website http://johnrobbins.info/). John is the author of the 1987 famous book “Diet for a New America”, an exposé on connections between diet, physical health, animal cruelty, and environmentalism.
In 2001, John Robbins published his second book, the best selling book “The Food Revolution”. The book includes information on organic food, GMO foods and factory farming. He is passionate, devoted and always on the cutting edge of the newest research. With his books, he has inspired many people to change their way of life. Every year, John organizes the “Food Revolution Summit”, in which he interviews a variety of top experts on food related topics. This year, he is joined by 24 of the top food experts on the planet.
I have soaked up all the interviews like a dry sponge, some of the things I already knew but a lot was new or updated information. So far, I have been given a lot of insight information on GMO food, toxic chemicals in our food supply and how big biotech companies buy up the seeds that belong to the world. The best thing about the summit is THAT YOU CAN LISTEN FOR FREE!! You want to take the opportunity to hear some amazing speakers? Join here
My next post will include a recipe again-one that is THE perfect school snack… and less information. I just HAD to share the summit information with you as it is already up and running and will end on Saturday.
Don’ t miss out on it and get inspired by the talks!
