Vegin’ Out, Watchin’ a Movie

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on August 31, 2010 by smalltownhealth

Saturday night I was fortunate enough to see an advance screening of Forks Over Knives. It is a film about how nutrition affects our health. More specifically, it is a film about how consuming animal protein affects our health. Here is the trailer:

I have flirted with a vegan lifestyle in the past, but I’ve never truly made the commitment. It’s time to take the plunge. As of September 6th, 2010, I will be a 21-day vegan with the help of my friends at 21-Day Vegan Kickstart

I’m really excited to see what changes, if any, I will notice in my health, body, and mind. Twenty-one days is no big deal, right? Did I mention my husband and I just bought a side of grass-fed beef? I’m partial to eggs for breakfast? Am I crazy? Witness the insanity right here, as I’ll be documenting my every meal. And please mark your calendars for March 11, 2011–the official release date of Forks Over Knives.
