Forks Over Knives

So the other night at my dad's birthday dinner, my brother told me about a documentary called "Forks Over Knives".

FORKS OVER KNIVES examines the profound claim that most, if not all, of the degenerative diseases that afflict us can be controlled, or even reversed, by rejecting animal-based and processed foods. (from

  1. Hi! I want to se that, but no way am I giving up meat. I love it too much. On my blog I have a sight "little house of veggies" she has a ton of recipes with out meat, maybe even dairy I believe she is vegan. So far things are good and easy to make.
    Hope all is well,
