I recently had the opportunity to share the stage at Raconteurs Storytelling in Toronto. Racounteurs is an amazing project which assembles a bunch of speakers around a loose topic and each shares the stage with a story about the topic.
I decided to explore my relationship with food and, specifically, how my choices in food often make me feel like a hypocrite and how my relationship to food and what I eat has changed over the years (as I suspect it will continue to). It’s fairly graphic and shares my experiences as a near-vegetarian, hunter, eater and as someone who spent a brief amount of time working on a pig farm, seeing chickens slaughtered and learning how to skin rabbits at the age of 4.
This video explains a lot of the motivation behind WellPreserved and the reasons why we continue to publish articles and learn more about what we eat. I hope it also conveys that we aren’t judging others for their choices – I barely have my own figured out.
I hope you enjoy and would love to hear your thoughts or experiences.
