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.
