Forks over Knives

Wow. What a documentary. Truly motivating and eye opening. I am a long time carnivore and someone who ate vegetables once a week, it that, growing up. Getting me to eat my vegetables was such a miserable experience for my parents that my dad would often eat them off my plate when my mom walked out of the room just to get it over with.

Now, I am a Vegetarian, and slowly progressing to being a Vegan. I am a fitness nut and aspiring bodybuilding and will be doing it all on a Vegan diet. The transition for me has been slow, mostly inspired by all the things I read online on health websites, email subscriptions and things I find in my determination to live a long healthy life and raise my kids eating the right foods.

For now, I strongly suggest you watch this documentary. It is on Netflix and will blow your hair back and make you consider that large piece of dead animal on your plate, as well as the dinky serving of broccoli that makes you think you are eating healthy. Believe me, I am a former bacon cheeseburger connoisseur. It didn't happen overnight! Here is a link to their website. It has lots of good stuff on there! I follow their Facebook fan page and the Engine 2 diet mentioned in the documentary that has great Vegan recipes
