Food Exposed with Nelufar Hedayat is a timely look at the future of food for the globe. In this episode, she visits a lab working on meeting the demand of consumers joining the "veg rev," including the growing numbers of flexitarians (semi-vegetarians) who only eat meat occasionally.
One of the annoying parts of the vegetarian and vegan movements, especially on shithole platforms like Twitter, is that the most vocal adherents can get cult-like about policing language and behavior. To wit: the vegan bro who doxxed a vegan woman who had bought a (non-vegan) ice cream cone for a child.
The term "flexitarian" is great, because it gives everyone the wiggle room while acknowledging a mindful attempt at reducing animal products in their diets. There's currently a push among dieticians to consider going meatless one day a week, especially with kids, to acclimate them to the trend toward less meat consumption.
FUSION’s new eight-part docu-series “Food Exposed with Nelufar Hedayat” will cover topics such as fish, dairy, water, GMOs, superfoods, palm oil, and pork. Hosted by award-winning journalist Nelufar Hedayat, the eye-opening series examines how our appetites shape our world, investigating the global food chain and the origins of our favorite ingredients. As she travels the world, Nelufar reveals the true cost of food to people, animals, and the planet.

I have long been a fan of pan-searing steaks and finishing their roast in the oven. Previously, I’d either thaw the steaks in the fridge overnight or I would sous vide them instead of using the oven, and sear them at the end. This technique: thawing the surface of the steak enough to hold seasoning […]
It’s a mandala of crispy fried carbohydrates, and I want to worship every bite.
Even in horrible economic times, a few simple rules hold unshakably true. And one of those rules is that if you possess an in-demand skill, you’ll always find work — and often, at a top market salary, to boot. If you understand Big Data and how to find order from the chaos of massive stockpiles […]
We live in a disposable era. If you can’t fix a broken item with a wrap of duct tape, there’s a very strong likelihood that its next destination is the trashcan. However, that probably leads to a trigger-finger death sentence for many household items that could be saved with just a bit more ingenuity. Before […]
Right tool for the right job. You probably heard a parent or grandparent say it at least once at some point. And it’s true in so many cases. If you spot a small tear in your living room curtains or near to hem a pair of pants, you can always use the good old fashioned […]
