Forks Over Knives

"Someone needs to stand up and say, 'The answer isn't another pill, the answer...is spinach'"

Tim and I went to go see this new documentary called Forks Over Knives this week, and it was amazing!  A large part of the film focused on how eating a plant based diet can not only prevent cancerous cells from forming, but can actual reverse those that have already grown.  That's quite a remarkable feat, if you ask me.  Another big theme in the documentary was talking about how over medicated America is, especially when a simple lifestyle and dietary change could solve their medical issues.  Lastly (but not by any means the least), Forks over Knives talked about how obese America and the shocking  data comparing our country to others in terms of weight, health related concerns and fatalities.  I highly recommend this documentary to everyone!! It's only playing in one theater in Seattle, but it is so worth the drive.  As soon as we walked out of the theater, Tim said that he wanted to continue to try other fake milks in order to curb his milk craving, and then we went and bought a ridiculous amount of healthy, yummy food!
