The research for eating a plant-based diet is incredibly compelling. While we won't be giving up meat and dairy completely, we already have made a conscious effort to decrease the amount that we consume. The link between meat (this includes poultry and seafood ~ anything that has a 'head') and health issues especially cancer is primarily what has compelled us to eat differently.
No more milk in our household!
We've switched to almond milk now!
Ok. . . we still have half and half for coffee. . .
This past week's meals were filled with farro, barley, and lots of salad & fruit. I'll be sharing recipes that we're still making from Bon Appetit, Food and Wine and Saveur magazines -- but will be slightly modifying them to decrease the amount of oil, dairy and meat called for in the recipes.
All in all, I'd highly recommend watching Forks Over Knives -- watch it on Neflix or borrow it from the library. I bet it'll change how you eat too.
