Last year about this time, I listened to the 2014 Food Revolution Summit that was put on by John and Ocean Robbins. I was very impressed by who the speakers were, the quality of the talks given and the array of subject matter that was handled during the conference. Last year's speakers included Dr. Dean Ornish, Dr. Neal Barnard, Mark Bittman of The New York Times, Dr. Michael Klaper, Rip Esselstyn, Brenda Davis, Mayor Cory Booker and more. And the best part was that this amazing lineup of speakers came free. All I had to do was signup.
Now, the 2015 conference is less than two weeks away and there is another amazing lineup of speakers that are all being offered for free. For example, Paul McCartney will be talking about where he gets the energy to put on grueling three hour concerts at his age. Hint: Think plant-based eating. Other speakers this year will include Dr. Neal Barnard (returning from last year), Michael Pollan (author of several books including In Defense of Food and The Omnivores' Dilemma), Dr. Joel Fuhrman, Dr. Michael Greger and more.
I'm looking forward to hearing what these people have to say. Last year the conference touched on a lot of areas related to eating a whole food, plant-based diet. Some of those areas included healthcare, environmental issues, climate change issues, animal cruelty issues and more. I found the information presented to be very factual and interesting. I enjoyed listening to every discussion and I found lots of suitable material to include in my blogs as well.
I urge all of my readers to sign up for the conference and listen to it. I think each of my readers will find it to be of value. And because it's free, there's really nothing to lose. But there's everything to gain.
The conference can be signed up for by clicking on this sentence. The conference runs from April 25th to May 3rd and can be listened to at home or in the car or wherever you can access a computer. You can listen to as little or as much as you want to listen to. In my humble opinion, it's well worth our time to listen to it.
