The past decade has seen a rapidly growing movement towards a cleaner, healthier and sustainable way of eating. However, the mainstream global dialogue is focused on the reduction and eventual elimination of animal-sourced foods. There is growing concern among many citizens, scientists, academics and food producers who share a belief that we need to preserve a true range of food options to reflect the diversity of our cultures, races, and traditions and importantly, our degree of metabolic health. Maintaining diversity and choice are at the foundation of any healthy democracy, and health itself is a human right. Diana’s new initiative, the Global Food Justice Alliance, advocates for a concept called Food Sovereignty, which is the right of peoples to healthy and culturally appropriate food produced through ecologically sound and sustainable methods, and their right to define their own food and agriculture systems. It puts the aspirations and needs of those who produce, distribute and consume food at the heart of food systems and policies rather than the demands of markets and corporations.
