Tasty Guide to a Healthy Planet is a video series showing how everyone can make healthier lives for themselves and their families. They can help create a more fair and community-based economy, and do their part to conserve nature. All of that, while enjoying the pleasures of fresh, great-tasting food.
The conventional food system that feeds most of us may seem bountiful, but it’s not necessarily good for us. It’s unhealthful, economically unstable, and it seduces us with calculated doses of processed fats and sugars. It relies on toxic chemicals applied to plants and soil, cross-species genetic manipulation, antibiotics and hormones in animal feed, and many billions in taxpayer subsidies given to industrial-scale farming operations. This system is controlled by a few multi-national corporations, with the primary goals of increasing corporate profits and monopolizing control over our food sources.
This should be changed, but what can take its place? How about a food system that has nourished and supported societies since the beginning of agriculture? There’s no reason why sustainable, locally based ways of making and buying food can’t succeed today. All that’s needed is for enough people to learn about that traditional and reliable system, and to see how it can improve their lives so that they spend their food dollars there. That’s already happening in some cities and towns. And the more people who learn about it, the more it can succeed across the United States and the world.
Video has become the most common way for people to connect with ideas, and to be entertained and persuaded. Most of us are too busy to personally explore the many ways that a sustainable, local and healthy food system can change our lives and our communities. Tasty Guide brings interesting people, entertaining stories and provocative ideas to you, giving you the power to decide the changes you’d like to make in the way you eat.
