Food For Thought

When: Sat., May 21 2011

Carnivores, herbivores, and omnivores alike are welcome to join members of the West Shore Unitarian Universalists' vegetarian group tonight for a screening of the British indie documentary Planeat. The 87-minute flick follows the journey of three medical researchers — including the Cleveland Clinic's Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn — as they search for a diet that is good for health, the environment, and the future of the planet. Also taking part: pioneering chefs who lay down some of the most mouthwatering cooking that you've ever seen on film without once resorting to lettuces and lentils. The upshot is a challenge to our love affair with meat and dairy, and a meditation on how our food choices contribute to environmental degradation. The movie begins at 7 p.m.; tickets are $5 at the door or $3 for members. Afterward, stick around for healthy refreshments and tasty conversation. The West Shore Unitarian Universalist Church is at 20401 Hilliard Blvd. in Rocky River; go to for more information. — Niehaus
