“May all be fed, may all be healed, may all be loved,” John Robbins

Today I met John Robbins, author of Diet for a New America, The Food Revolution, and his latest, No Happy Cows. Mr. Robbins was a featured speaker at the Living & Eating Green Expo held in Kirtland, Ohio, along with Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, Jr., who was featured in the Movie Forks over Knives.

If you’ve read any of Robbins’ books, you know he is the son of Baskin & Robbins 31 Flavors founder, Irv Robbins. Although groomed to take over the family business, he rejected his family’s fortune after making the connection between diet and health, and watching members of his family succumb to disease and early death.

In his books, he details the impact of dietary choices on our personal health, the health of our planet and its creatures, and our spiritual well-being. In person, he is warm, articulate, and speaks with passion and intelligence about what is clearly his life’s mission: making our world a safe and better place for all God’s creatures. Thankfully, it wasn’t to create a 32nd flavor!

Read his books and be prepared to change your view on the agribusiness practices in this country, our government’s national health policies, and most importantly, your own food choices.

Peace & Raw,

Jennifer
