Today I finally got to see the documentary Forks Over Knives. I had seen a trailer back on another blog and since then I have been anxiously awaiting its release to DVD.
I am absolutely, one hundred percent passionate about eating healthy, a fit lifestyle and taking care of the bodies God has given us. We only have one here on this earth. This video helped open my eyes to the staggering truth regarding how much processed meat and animal fats we as a country consume, as well as the stunning facts and benefits that eating a whole, holistic plant based diet can produce.
Imagine reducing Cancer and diabetes just by changing the way we look at food. Imagine if we lived differently from all the rest, ate mostly vegetables, worked out regularly.....
While I am certainly not a Vegan, I do support the idea of a rather Vegan lifestyle. I know in my own house, we will probably not go entirely without chicken or fish. (My husband loves meat...so leaner meats will be in our house).
But eliminating McDonalds and Taco Bell from the family menu....that is entirely my goal.
I have included the trailer for you:
