Vegan friends have you ever wondered why non vegans can be so forcefully and vocally opposed to the vegan parent’s decision to raise their children vegan?
A misinformed fear and judgment that is not dished up to the omnivores serving processed flesh based crap-o-la to their little ones!
My guest today scientist, educator, speaker and activist Sarina Farb was born and raised vegan in America’s mid west and she is very grateful her parents “forced” their diet and ethics on her.
In this conversation we cover:
- Myths about growing up vegan and why Sarina is grateful her parents “forced” their diet and ethics on her.
- How we can heal the planet with our food choices.
- The frustrating tendency to promote so called local or “humane” or regenerative farming instead of just embracing veganism.
- The truth about dairy and racism in dietary guidelines.
- Sarina speaks to how science and the scientific method aligns with and supports veganism.
- The problems of distrust in science, bias in studies and politicised science.
- The Science is Gray podcast.
As Sarina shares, her upbringing – born vegan – taught her how to think critically for herself and stand for justice even when it’s unpopular.
Isn’t that an ideal, empowered yet compassionate start to give your child? As one of my fav activists Earthling Ed shares, just imagine the type of world we could live in if the first lesson we taught our kids was compassion and respect for ALL living beings.
It’s hard to imagine racism, sexism – any of the prejudices – let alone speciesism could exist when kids were taught from the get go that animals are friends not food. Individuals not products. Here with us not for us.
I love the sound of that world. To connect with Sarina online I have you all linked in the show notes below.
