Every week I choose 5 vegan things that I like. They can be food, cosmetics, books, DVD’s or it can be a service for vegan like a subscription box. This weeks likes include: vegan coconut cupcakes and the China study cook book.
1- Got The Facts On Milk ? -DVD
to watch the trailer click here
A wonderfully made film! This is a must-see, mind-blowing documentary that is for anyone who drinks milk or has family/friends that consume dairy.
This documentary utilizes multiple sources of information including the dairy industry, the United States Department of Agriculture, farmers, and members of the public .
It is rare however to get another side of the story. We are all so inundated, basically from birth, with advertising that dairy is so healthy for us, apparently so healthy that it is even SHOCKING if someone says they don’t drink it. “What?? Where do you get your calcium?” Especially when we are young, it’s like we’re required to drink dairy. But is dairy really that healthy for us? This is an incredibly important question to ask, since dairy is in so many foods. This knowledge-imparting film is presented in a fun way. It entertainment that can make a difference in your life.
2- The China Study Cook Book
I read the book called the China Study so I naturally wanted to get the cook book too. The recipes are easy to follow and use ingredient that you can source easily or probably have in your kitchen already.
