WE FEED THE WORLD is a film about food and globalisation, fishermen and farmers, long-distance lorry drivers and high-powered corporate executives, the flow of goods and cash flow–a film about scarcity amid plenty. With its unforgettable images, the film provides insight into the production of our food and answers the question what world hunger has to do with us .
Interviewed are not only fishermen, farmers, agronomists, biologists and the UN’s Jean Ziegler, but also the director of production at Pioneer, the world’s largest seed company, as well as Peter Brabeck, Chairman and CEO of Nestlé International, the largest food company in the world.
* I have to say I cried when chickens were killed, that was not only scary but very sad… and people wonder why I don’t eat meat, and CEO of Nestlé International all I have to say is OMG.
Pre-run: banana, spinach, peaches, and watermelon! It was a little rich, so I blended some ice in afterwards.
What a treat! #Soulfood #SuperSalad #Lunch @EternalAbundance

I was contacted by The Raw Chocolate Company to do a review about new snack packs, I said yes for two reasons;
1. I love raw chocolate
2. I love both goji berries and mulberries
The Raw Chocolate Company is a small company based in Brighton that produce a range of raw chocolate made from ingredients that are ethically sourced and mostly organic. They have a low carbon footprint, and love the planet so much they wanted to provide chocolate and other products that did not impact the environment in a negative way.
Why raw chocolate?
Raw chocolate is an almost complete foodstuff. It is loaded with more than 300 chemically identifiable compounds, and is higher in anti-oxidants than green tea and wine. It also contains protein, fats, calcium, iron, carotene, thiamine, riboflavin, and magnesium, which is essential for the correct functioning of the brain.
Raw Cacao has only very low quantities of caffeine. Cocoa - that is roasted cacao - does have higher levels of caffeine in it however.
Raw Cacao does have another stimulant in it called theobromine. This is similar to caffeine but has a gentler, longer term effect and is less addictive than caffeine.
The raw chocolate mulberries
Mulberries, mulberries, I love them fresh, I love them dried. They taste wonderful, the dark rich chocolate is teamed with delicious sweet crunchy mulberries.
Natural dried mulberries are a delicious and nutritious snack. For a fruit, they have unusually high levels of iron and protein, and are a good source of many nutrients. These crunchy berries have no additives and pack a natural, sweet taste.
Eating just a couple can be great for your health - just a serving contains significant amounts of Vitamin C, dietary fiber, iron, and protein. In addition, mulberries contain anthocyanins, a group of antioxidants known for their anti-inflammatory and possible anti-cancer properties, and reservatol, an antioxidant found in red wine and peanuts.
If you add raw chocolate benefits you get the best of both worlds. Tasty, sweet, no additives, many nutrients!
Ingredients: Organic Mulberries 44%, Raw Chocolate 56%, (74% cacao solids): Organic Fairtrade cacao mass, Organic coconut palm sugar, Organic Fairtrade cacao butter, Organic Fairtrade cacao powder.
The raw chocolate goji berries
I have to admit I tried goji berries for the first time last summer, and at first I didn’t like them, but this year in winter I started to eat them every day and now I have them 2-3 times a week for breakfast with oatmeal. Perfect balance between bittersweet gojis and pure chocolate perfection!
Hailed as the newest superfood, goji, a Himalayan berry, has inspired a surge of interest for its use in treating diabetes, hypertension, malaria, fever, cancer and other ailments. Gram for gram, goji berries pack more vitamin C than some oranges and more beta-carotene than carrots.
Dried goji berries make an excellent snack, and are also great used in muffins, raw desserts, and energy bars!
Ingredients: Goji Berries 40%, Raw Chocolate 60% (74% cacao solids): Fairtrade cacao mass, coconut palm sugar, Fairtrade cacao butter, Fairtrade cacao powder.
