How To Talk To Non-Vegans About Veganism – Video

Most of us find it difficult to effectively talk to non-Vegans about Veganism. The reason why it’s especially hard to talk to people about Veganism is that the subject of what we eat is a very personal and deeply emotional for people.

I have seen and heard Vegans try to express their beliefs and convictions to others and it did more damage to Veganism than if they would just keep their mouths shut. The people walk away angry and more determined to not give it another thought and/or talk to another person about the subject again. It builds a divide.

This mainly happens when a person tries to persuade (scare, intimidate or shock) people into changing their lifestyle by making rude comments or making the others feel ashamed and negative. This method rarely works and most of the time does just the opposite. If you have been around the Vegan culture for any amount of time, I am sure you know what I am describing.

There is a way that really works and leaves no one angry or upset, all the while really making them think about their diet and the life choices they make.

Please take the time to watch these videos, this method allows the person to come to the conclusions on their own. You will also gain insights on how meat eaters think.

Earthling Ed explains the method in the below video. The second, third & fourth videos show his method being used as he talks to people about Veganism around the UK.

 

These next three videos below show Earthling Ed talking to everyday folks about Veganism.

(He has many other videos that are good as well on his YouTube Channel)

 

 

I believe that the more we allow people to come to their own conclusions about Veganism intellectually, which will then allow them to embrace it emotionally, the more fruit we will see from our labors. And maybe, as an added benefit, we will meet and make some new friends along the way.

I hope you have found this helpful and insightful.

The Impossible Burger – 100% Vegan

Impossible Food’s has made a 100% Vegan burger that looks, cooks, tastes and smells like ground beef and even bleeds like a real burger.

It is rumored that it will be offered in selected restaurants in New York, Los Angels and San Francisco first. Then eventually it will be sold like ground beef in the stores and on the menu in other restaurants in the U.S.

From what I have seen it may be too realistic in flavor, look and taste for some Vegetarians and Vegans to stomach. It is so realistic it even bleeds juices when it cooks.

Google tried to buy this company for 200-300 million but was unable to come to an agreement on price. While Microsoft’s Bill Gates has invested in the company.

The possibilities for the use of this product are endless and I can hardly wait to try some as a burger, meat balls, or meatloaf.

Check out the companies website.  I am sure they will be creating even more impossible foods very soon!

Plant Pure Nation is a new documentary movie from the makers of the movie Forks Over Knives.

There is an exciting new film out called Plant Pure Nation from the makers of the acclaimed life changing movie Forks Over Knives With Dr. T. Colin Campbell Co-Author of The China Study.

Here are some quotes from the Plant Pure Nation Website about the film.

“The documentary film PlantPure Nation tells the story of three people on a quest to spread the message of one of the most important health breakthroughs of all time. After renowned nutritional scientist and bestselling author T. Colin Campbell gives a stirring speech on the floor of the Kentucky House of Representatives, his son, Nelson, and Kentucky State Representative Tom Riner work together to propose a pilot program documenting the health benefits of a plant-based diet. Once the legislation goes into Committee, agribusiness lobbyists kill the plan. Undeterred, Nelson decides to try his own pilot project in his hometown of Mebane, North Carolina.” 

“The filmmakers hope to use PlantPure Nation to create broad grassroots movement.  They are spearheading the formation of Plant Pure Pods in cities and towns across N. America. Members of these groups will help to plant seeds of change around the message plant-based nutrition in their communities. One tool they will use in this effort will be the same 10-day Jumpstart program featured in the film, to give people the experience of a whole food, plant-based diet.”“The PlantPure Nation movement has already begun!  The film team embarked on a successful preview screening tour in 23 cities across the United States and Canada to discuss an advance cut of the film with audiences in April, May and June.  Then they held the PlantPure Nation World Premiere at the ArcLight Hollywood on June 25th for an enthusiastic audience of 400 attendees.

“PlantPure Nation was filmed across the USA and features Steve Forbes, Jr. (Editor-in-Chief Forbes Magazine,) Dr. T. Colin Campbell (Co-Author, The China Study,) Dr. Neal Barnard (Founder and President, Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine,) Dr. Michael Greger, (Director of Public Health and Animal Agriculture, Humane Society of the United States) leading the list of world-renowned experts, doctors and authors who speak on the topic. The Production team includes Director Nelson Campbell and Producer John Corry & Writer Lee Fulkerson from the acclaimed documentary film Forks Over Knives. PlantPure Nation, however, is not a sequel to Forks Over Knives.”

A new social movement is being launched through groups called PlantPure Pods. Members of Pods will work together to promote the message of plant-based nutrition in their communities. What is a PlantPure Pod? Its easy to get involved.
