Get Vegucated!Posted | 2 comments
I found the documentary Vegucated to be a great starting point when I began learning and gathering information last year about the vegetarian and vegan diet. This film raised my awareness of the horrors of the factory farm industry without being too overwhelming, graphic or radical.
Whether you are considering a vegetarian lifestyle or taking the full plunge into veganism, this documentary provides plenty of food for thought without being preachy, rigid or dogmatic.
I highly recommend this documentary if you are just beginning your quest into the vegetarian and/or vegan way of life or need additional conviction. It’s funny, lighthearted and packed with valuable information. I specifically enjoyed the main characters of this film and could relate to each of their stories, individual circumstances and points of view.

Vegucated is a feature-length documentary that follows three meat and cheese loving New Yorkers who agree to adopt a vegan diet for six weeks. There’s Brian, the bacon-loving bachelor who eats out all the time; Ellen, the single mom who prefers comedy to cooking; and Tesla, the college student who avoids vegetables and bans beans. They have no idea that so much more than steak is at stake and that the fate of the world may fall on their plates.
Lured with true tales of weight lost and health regained, they begin to uncover hidden sides of animal agriculture and soon start to wonder whether solutions offered in films like Food, Inc. go far enough. Before long, they find themselves risking everything to expose an industry they supported just weeks before.
But can their conviction carry them when times get tough? What about on family vacations fraught with skeptical step-dads, carnivorous cousins, and breakfast buffets?
Part sociological experiment and part adventure comedy, Vegucated showcases the rapid and at times comedic evolution of three people who share one journey and ultimately discover their own paths in creating a kinder, cleaner, greener world, one bite at a time!
Peace be with you, and may you always find light on your path, good health, and true friends to make the journey with you.
