Have you ever watched the documentary Blackfish?

I decided to watch it last night after I heard about the new bill being proposed by a California state legislator. The bill would ultimately ban the captivity of Orcas, causing major disruption at Sea World.

I’m fairly good at watching documentaries. By this I mean I try to juxtapose and decontextualize the information presented. However, watching this documentary was eye opening. I was shocked and often times uncomfortable. Now that’s a documentary.


If you’re interested in marine biology, politics, or enterprise corruption I would definitely suggest watching Blackfish. I’d love to hear what you all think of it!

I watched Blackfish while eating this Soy Ginger Quinoa Salad. I would highly suggest doing the same.

1/2 cup edamame [1 protein, 1 vegetable]
