Yes, you may have noticed. I'm passionate about being healthy and I love documentaries about it.
I posted that I watched Forks Over Knives but didn't write anything else about it. You definitely have to check it out! I think it was done well and the information is profound.
I've been drinking almond milk for nearly a year (thank you, Joshua) because I prefer the flavor to cow milk, so I've already got a jump on this. I don't believe that it's necessary to cut out animal products completely but I do believe that we need to eat meat it sparingly. We've known that for over a century through the Word of Wisdom (D&C 89:12-13). God is good.
Food Matters is another great documentary. It's not put together as well as others but the information is important. It talks about how we are what we eat, which I totally agree with! Diet can be helpful or harmful. I love the quotes used in the movie. This knowledge has been around since before Christ, yet it was lost somehow to the general public. It's time we find our way back.
I took some of what this film talked about with a grain of salt (ha! that's a pun) but the over all take home message is vital. We need to take care of ourselves and we do that with what we consume. I completely agree that drugs are (in most cases) not the answer.
Bottom line: eating a diet rich in produce and whole grains translates to a healthy/happy you. I'm in.
We caught both on Netflix's Watch Instantly.
