Hungry for Change is written in the same conversational style as the Hungry for Change movie. It includes inspirational before and after stories of people who are following healthier diets. The book covers why diets don’t work, what to eat, drink and think, as well as eating for beauty and detoxing.
Half of the book is recipes with 120 plus of them. There are quotes from the experts, some of whom are well known. There are details of overcoming sugar cravings and instructions on how to complete a 3 day guided detox.
The movie is powerful and motivating, but the book is a good accompaniment for when you need a reminder or recipe.

Food-like products is my favourite nutritional catch-phrase.
Do you think you can change someone’s mind about climate change?
A new ABC television show “I Can Change Your Mind About..Climate” seeks to address that question.
The website features a survey you can take to find out your views before the show airs.
I’d like to see them change a sceptic’s mind, but that can be hard work…. perhaps there is a better way?
I like the approach George Marshall from Talking Climate takes in the video above. He asks what the best way of talking to a climate ‘denier’ is, including advice on language, framing, and a discussion of whether ‘denier’ is even the right way of thinking about the problem. From How to talk to a climate change denier.

I’m counting down the days for the new Hungry for Change documentary. Why? Because it’s produced by the same people who did the “Food Matters” documentary, which is my all time favourite food and nutrition movie. Hands down.
If I’ve learnt anything is the last few years, 100% what food you eat does matter to your health.

This commodification of food by industrial agriculture has created a chasm between the grower and the consumer. But now there’s a change. People want to close that gap in.
– Costa Georgiadis
How will the world feed itself in the future?
Is it possible to grow a fair and sustainable food system?
This film shows an experiment in how to create that change with promising solutions.
In Venezuela, from fishing villages to cocoa plantations to urban gardens, a growing social movement is showing what’s possible when communities, not corporations, start to take control of food.
Sydney filmmaker Simon Cunich went on a 12-month journey from community gardens in Sydney to farming co-operatives in Venezuela.
This documentary has a wonderful positive message. It stands there right next to the now classic Power of Community.
