Put down that cookie! Don’t take a bite of that banana! Before you eat, do you think about from where your food comes? Food itself is empowering as it gives us the energy to live. Unfortunately, what we choose to eat can sometimes hurt ourselves and others. Did the meat come from a farm where animals are abused or not treated well?; Is the palm oil you use to cook made from ingredients that are depleting natural resources?; or was the chocolate bar the result of child labor or unfair working conditions? Join me this week as we talk to lauren Ornelas, the founder and Executive Director of the Food Empowerment Project (FEP). FEP seeks to create a more just and sustainable world by recognizing the power of our food choices and by encouraging choices that reflect a more compassionate society. What we choose to eat can empower our own health, but it can also empower the lives of others. So, whether you “eat to live” or “live to eat,” this week’s episode will make you hungry for more!
