TedxManhattan’s day-long conference, “Changing the Way We Eat,” is back this Saturday, March 1, and its speaker line-up and topic agenda is pretty impressive.

A range of top healthy food and sustainability experts will take the stage to address complex, and sometimes controversial, topics. Earthbound Farm co-founder Myra Goodman will defend “big organic,” Peggy Neu will talk about the spread of the Meatless Monday movement, and Baruch College professor Regina Bernard-Carreno will speak on how race relates to healthy food access. (There’s even a talk on crickets as a source of protein.)

The event itself is sold out, but if you’re among the food-fascinated, you can livestream the whole thing while you do laundry or lounge on the couch. Or, you can attend one of the many viewing parties that have been organized across the country. In New York, they’re happening at ‘Wichcraft, Jimmy’s No. 43, The Natural Gourmet Institute, and more.

Wherever you watch it, it’ll most likely turn you on to kitchen-level and systemic changes that are good for both you and the world around you. What else were you going to do—go to brunch? —Lisa Elaine Held
