The short film “Vegan 2016 – A growing movement under attack” is now out. It gives a year in review for 2016. Please give it a watch and be encouraged. It is 35 minutes in length.
This is a short interview with Dr. Lim. It’s fun to see and hear yet another doctor talk about their “ah ha” moment and evolution in their thinking and the way they now treat their patients.
The following is a partial quote from Physician’s Committee For Responsible Medicine.
“The interview was conducted at the Physician’s Committee’s 2017 Nutrition in Medicine conference.
Anthony Lim, MD, JD, Medical Director: Anthony Lim, MD, JDAs Medical Director, Dr. Lim oversees the medical care of participants in the McDougall Program. Dr. Lim is a board-certified family physician, and enjoys working closely with patients to help them adopt healthier habits that can significantly improve their overall health.
He is a graduate of Stanford University with a degree in Human Biology, and subsequently obtained his law degree from Harvard Law School and his medical degree from Boston University. He completed his residency training at Santa Rosa Family Medicine Residency and has a busy career combining patient care, teaching, and community advocacy focused on whole food, plant-based nutrition.“
Here is a great video showing how your body changes week by week on a Vegan diet.
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 Vegan Gourmand

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!
