vegan documentaries

Post by DNS »

Veganism / vegetarianism has been picking up in popularity in recent years, progressing very fast
(see other thread on Beyond meat).
viewtopic.php?f=23&t=1476

Some of this is for ethical reasons, some for nutritional reasons, and perhaps more so recently due to all the environmental reports on climate change and other environmental issues and how a vegetarian diet and especially a vegan one will help in mitigating the effects.

Dharmic Paths have a long history of advocating ahimsa (nonviolence) and some paths have outright recommended or even required a vegetarian diet, especially some Mahayana traditions, some Hindu traditions, and all Jainism sects.

Here is the entire documentary, go to 1:45 to skip credits:



However, stay away from plant based imitation meats:
Sean Hashmi, MD, physician and regional director of weight management and clinical nutrition for Kaiser Permanente Southern California, shares insights on some of 2019’s most talked about nutrition trends.

Meatless meats
Trend: Plant-based meats — like Beyond Meat or Impossible Burger — are popping up everywhere. They’re now available in restaurants, fast food chains, and grocery stores. So, what is it? Plant-based meats are made from plants but are meant to taste (and look) like meat. They’re targeted at meat-eaters — not just vegetarians — and positioned as a way to eat less meat and help the environment.

The facts: Meatless meats are high in salt and saturated fat. “Plant-based meats have almost 4 times the salt as beef does, and essentially the same amount of saturated fat as you would find in beef,” says Dr. Hashmi. “It’s also a highly processed food where chemicals are used to extract the protein, which is a huge concern.” These fake meats aren’t a good nutrient source. Meatless meat lacks the fiber you would get from simply eating real plants.

Verdict: Pass on the plant-based meats. “I wouldn’t jump on this bandwagon,” Dr. Hashmi says. If you want to eat less meat, he suggests eating plant-based whole foods like vegetables, fruits, and legumes. Plus, there’s no data on the long-term effects of these artificial meats — and there won’t be any useful data for another 4 to 5 years.

Yes, probably a good idea. When I first became a vegetarian, I ate a lot of those, but soon lost my taste for the meat flavor including any of the meat-substitutes, so now eat real food (vegan, whole foods). If you look at the ingredient list of some of those meat-substitutes, it's full of long named chemicals and lots of processing.

Yep, too much salt also.
