This week, Mariann talks to Suzy Amis Cameron about how her new book, OMD, Changing The World By Changing One Meal a Day, is generating surprising reactions from non-vegans and the tips the book offers to help you advocate for family members and others to adopt more of a plant-based diet. She also talks about the Cameron Family Farms, and the extraordinary push back she experienced when trying to make MUSE School‘s meals plant-based.
Suzy Amis Cameron is a noted environmental advocate, former actor and model, and mother of five. In addition to founding MUSE School with her sister Rebecca Amis, she has founded a number of environmental organizations, including Cameron Family Farms (together with her husband, director James Cameron), Plant Power Task Force, Food Forest Organics, and Red Carpet Green Dress.
In the intro to this episode, Jasmin and Mariann talk about trying to get family members to eat plant-based foods, Jasmin’s research into the health horrors of dairy, and the outrage over the Green New Deal. After the interview, Mariann brings us some Rising Anxieties. More info in the show notes!
