Film Shoot in Munich

Thursday, February 4, 2010 - 8:14pm

One of Jane's passions is living a vegetarian lifestyle. Being vegetarian is healthier not only for the consumer but also the environment.

While Jane was in Germany briefly last week she shared her thoughts on the subject for an upcoming Belgium film about decreasing meat consumption and factory farming around the world, and the impact such a movement would make. The film is in the beginning stages and the crew will also be filming in India, Congo, and Brazil. Take a look at the behind-the-scenes photos from the film shoot below.

Jane had this to say after the filming: "Even if one does not become a vegetarian, it would make a huge difference to give up meat for one day a week. So imagine giving it up for two or three. Then the benefits to health would be felt, and the environment and animals would benefit too."

Jane's thoughts about responsible eating are also featured in her best-selling book, Harvest for Hope: A Guide to Mindful Eating.

"It is not too late to change direction. We can once again become connected with the food we eat, and learn to understand its nature and its history and embrace a more natural diet," Jane writes in Harvest for Hope. You can purchase a copy of the book at the JGI store.

The interview was conducted in a very sleek building in Munich with a beautiful modern staircase in the background.
