The Vegetarian Myth
April 21, 2014
Hosted by Kellie Hill
Lierre Keith believed in a plant-based diet and spent twenty years as a vegan. But in her book, The Vegetarian Myth, she argues that we’ve been led astray—not by our longings for a just and sustainable world, but by our ignorance. She explains to Kellie that the truth is agriculture is a relentless assault against the planet, and more of the same won’t save us. In service to annual grains, humans have devastated prairies and forests, driven countless species extinct and endangered other species, altered the climate through global warming, and destroyed the topsoil—the basis of life itself. Kellie and Lierre will discuss the steps necessary to save the planet and maintain a healthy diet - our food must be an act of profound and abiding repair: it must come from inside living communities, not be imposed across them.

Kellie’s philosophy is that there is no one-size fits all diet. Because of bio-individuality (each one of us is different), most diets will work for some people and not for others. We need to eat nutrient dense, whole foods that have been properly prepared. We need real food, as close to the form it was originally grown and raised in, prepared in a way that preserves or even enhances the nutritional value of the food.
Kellie believes that it is important to investigate how the body is using the food as well as understanding what is happening in the bigger context of an individual’s life. She knows that we are obviously more than what we eat and that can have a very big impact on how the body deals with food.
