Awesome Stories 333

Here are 4 awesome stories about planet-friendly food, hemp cars, valuing people in business, and meeting death, brought to us by Brad, at “Writing to Freedom.” I’m looking forward to trying “Sunfed foods.” The more plant-based protein options we have, the better for our planet – especially for the animals.

This week Awesome Stories brings you meat-free meat, better business, hemp cars, and meeting death.

Meat-free Meat 

Sunfed Foods wants to change the way we think about meat and maybe save the planet. Inventor Shama Sukul Lee saw the big environmental impact of meat as a protein source and decided to create a better meat. Sunfed meats aim to look, taste, and cook just like meat, but are derived from pea and other plant proteins. Besides being much better for the planet, they are healthier for people too with less fat, and more zinc, iron, and protein, all while using fewer resources. The chicken variety recently launched in New Zealand and immediately sold out in local stores. Kudos Shama!

I first discovered this on Mary Aalgaard’s We Are the World post.

I know my recent good news stories seem to be all about babies and animals. That’s what tugs at my heart lately.

Awesome Stories 330

Of course he had me with “Tree Communication,” but all these are awesome stories worth a look! I’m thankful for each of them.

This week Awesome Stories brings you dancing to freedom, tree communication, remarkable kids, and a legacy of reform.

Dancing to Freedom

This is a remarkable story of perseverance. Refugee Ahmad Joudeh uses dance to create messages of peace. He has persevered beyond what most of us can imagine. Dancing is taboo in his native country of Syria. He was beaten by his own father, locked in rooms, threatened, and ridiculed, and yet he persevered. After a reporter made a documentary about him, the Dutch National Balet reached out to him and helped him immigrate to join their dance company. Today he uses his freedom to share messages of peace, gratitude, and unity with his world-wide family.

Remarkable Kids

 As we try to shelter and protect them, we discover that kids are remarkably resilient and that the things that help us to cope are often the very things that make challenges more…
