I went and saw “Baby Mama” with Tina Fey and Amy Poehler today (and loved it). There’s one scene in the movie where Tina Fey and Greg Kinnear go on a date…to a raw vegan restaurant. The waiter assures them that the special of the day tastes “earthy…like dirt” and then serves them a “yeast ball” which looks like a blob of raw bread dough. Then of course the couple runs as fast as they can to find meat elsewhere.
1) Seriously…would it even be possible to make a “yeast ball” that is raw vegan, that doesn’t have processed flour in it? These inconsistencies in scripts drive me bananas! 2) Isn’t it funny that a diet filled with juicy delicious foods is so completely misunderstood? If my watermelon could laugh… 3) Even though the screenwriter got it wrong, I still found myself pumped that a raw food restaurant was mentioned. We’re gaining ground in the consciousness of the media, and eventually all the truth about what raw food is will follow. I have faith!
