It’s Meat and Vegetable week on BTR!
On today’s episode of Third Eye, we look at the recent report from the Stockholm International Water Institute warning that impending water shortages could force the world’s population to adopt vegetarian diets.
John Cunningham of the Vegetarian Resource Group tells us what that means for meat eaters like Matt and Jen. And later, livestock sustainability consultant, Dr. Judith Capper, argues that historically, the sustainability of meat and dairy production has improved drastically over the last 30 years. So don’t count out the livestock industry’s ability to meet these challenges just yet.
Finishing today’s program is a candid conversation with vegan cookbook author, Terry Hope Romero. BTR Managing Editor Margaret Jacobi talks about Romero’s long history in cooking, DIY culture, and not letting her meat-eating friends feel guilt-tripped by her presence.
