Documentary: Forks Over Knives

Last weekend we watched the documentary Forks Over Knives (recommended to me by my sister).  It has completely changed how we eat and will impact our lives forever.  

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.
