Happy Earth Day!
I am celebrating today by not eating meat and recuperating from a busy week of educational speaking events. Last week, Johnson & Wales University invited me and Elle Palmer to speak at their Art & Sciences events about sustainability and the environment. Our talk was entitled “The Very Inconvenient Truth,” where we shared information about why meat and dairy consumption is the number one polluter of the environment.
Before the event, we passed out coconut based ice cream sandwiches that Earth Fare was generous to donate. We wanted the students to realize that it’s possible to reduce dairy consumption – even with ice cream! And of course we wanted the students jacked up on sugar ready to listen to what we had to say!
