Coming from a small rural mid-western town sometimes makes being a vegan difficult. Residents of cattle country don’t always understand the choice so it’s great to see videos like this that get the message out in a HILARIOUS way! I wish I could ad-lib the way Justin Timberlake does! Heck, I wish I had his Tofut-ilicious moves! Watch and learn!
Just got done watching this touching documentary about a man that set out to change his life thru fasting and on his way changed a lot of other people lives. He started out with a 60 day juice fast, and continued eating a whole food diet. He lost 90 pounds and made a huge change in his life in every way. It was really worth the time to sit down and watch it. On his website Fat Sick and Nearly Dead he has some good recipes for not only juice but other healthy foods. I am going to get out the juicer and try one of his recipes for breakfast in the morning.
Tanner the kids and I just got done watching Rip Esselstyn’s, the son of Dr. Caldwell B. Esselstyn who was on “Forks over Knives”, documentary on eating a whole plant based diet (Available on Netflix or Amazon). He is a Texas firefighter who wants to change the way people look at food. In his documentary he takes two different families, goes through what they currently eat, takes them to the grocery store and shows them what to eat, then brings them home and cooks it for them.
It was worth watching and seeing how we can think that something is good for us and it really isn’t. For example he uses no oils, instead he uses a nonstick pan. That is going to be difficult for me, but I’m going to try a couple of his recipes on his website http://engine2diet.com/. They look really good and fresh. He uses a few things I haven’t tried yet like nutritional yeast, which I picked up today, like cheese on pizza. It was educational to say the least and I would recommend watching it if you have a chance.
