Yesterday was a great day, aside from the fact that my only date was with Kittah, I got to work on something really awesome at FS. Although right now it’s mums the word until I get approval to talk about said things, but it has something to do with this video: Valentine’s Day at Farm Sanctuary. That’s all I can say right now, and if you know me, I’ve got a big smile on my face right now!
As for the rest of the day, I got to go on a shopping trip to Ithaca with the housemates. Wow is Wegmans much bigger than the one I’ve been to back home. We also hit up GreenStar. Yay for bulk rice & $2.50 Kombucha! I wish we could have spent more time up there, I really love the area, there is just so much to do. It was cool driving into town at night though this time, because the city was lit up. Ithaca is apparently much larger than I thought it was. In any case, growing up I always wanted to live in upstate New York area. Not that this is completely considered “upstate”, but I had thrown out the idea years ago and replaced it wth cities like Los Angeles, Seattle, Vancouver, and New York City. However, I’ve come to find that I really love it up. I could definitely see myself moving to the area for a bit.
As for today, the rest of the interns and myself get to have lunch with George Eiseman, who is actually a good friend of a friend and I can’t wait to meet him. He happens to be a registered dietician and the author of “The Most Noble Diet”. I really love talking about the nutritional aspect of eating a plant-based diet. It is something that I am definitely passionate about. Having worked at a health food store on and off for two years, I was able to extensively learn about nutrition and the health food industry.
Considering I would really like to get into documentary work about nutrition surrounding plant-based diets, this should definitely be a good talk. I have found that documentaries such as Forks Over Knives, Vegucated, and May I Be Frank were all very successful in showing different sides to eating a plant-based diet. They have all been very great inspiration to me and I can’t wait for what the future holds.
Well it’s off to my internship!
