Recipe contributors to The Vegucated Family Table are tasked with trying a new recipe from the book that they’ve never tried before. When their children get involved in the kitchen, chaos ensues. Will these kiddos approve of what is being cooked up? Watch and see what these littles and not-so-littles think not just of these recipes but of being plant-powered in general.
From Film to Family Cookbook
We believe a vegucated world is a better world. The sooner people understand the benefits of a plant-based lifestyle, the better, and the sooner people have the resources to go plantward, the better. We made our documentary, Vegucated, to inspire people to give plant-based living a try. Now we’re empowering parents who are considering raising plant-powered kids with sound nutritional advice, tips, and tried-and-true vegan family favorite recipes from my kitchen and from the kitchens of vegan parents in my community.
We believe that one day raising kids with a plant-powered lifestyle will be fully mainstream, given the resource efficiency, the health benefits, and the fact that we are constantly expanding our circle of compassion to include more beings, including farmed animals. But until then, vegan parents are pioneering their own way. Luckily, every year there are more and more resources to help us on our journey. Here are some of them.
Part sociological experiment and part adventure comedy, Vegucated follows three meat- and cheese-loving New Yorkers who agree to adopt a vegan diet for six weeks. Lured by tales of weight lost and health regained, they begin to uncover the hidden sides of animal agriculture that make them wonder whether solutions offered in films like Food, Inc. go far enough. This entertaining documentary showcases the rapid and at times comedic evolution of three people who discover they can change the world one bite at a time.
