Forks Over Knives: The Truth?


This documentary was brought to my attention several years ago and I did not view it.  Just now I stumbled upon the excerpt below and of course it is giving me cause to pause particularly after my yearly physical not too long ago.

What about you?  Have you viewed this documentary?  What do you think of it?  What have you heard about it?  Truly, I have just requested it via my local library.

Forks Over Knives


It has been some weeks since we viewed this documentary and guess what????  I’m still eating meat.  We have incorporated more fruits and veggies but certainly have not shunned meat.  Is there any hope?  Sigh.  One problem I am having is this living off the grid.  I am really trying to be a supportive wife.   It is difficult at best to have fresh fruits and veggies when there is no refrigeration.

I refuse to give up on the concepts in FOK.  As a matter of fact check out what I’ve learned Growing Onions. There has GOT to be a way to incorporate them, even in my life.  I am open to discussion and dialogue relative to this type of lifestyle.  You all say what?

  1. I haven’t seen the documentary but I’ve read quite about it. I can’t do vegan all the time – so I have done what I can. I eat one large salad a day, and at least two fruits and add cooked veggies to everything. ANd really, I see a difference in my health. My cholesterol has all returned to normal and my bp is optimal too. I think small steps over time add up to big changes.


    1. Ohhh, I needed to read this, Nothy Lane. Thank you for responding.

      I have also read and viewed Alissa Cohen’s information about eating raw. I never knew that one could eat vegetables every day and not repeat for a year! I’m not going to give up trying. And, what you stated is a good start for me.




      1. I think raw foods are great but I would never go nothing but raw foods. That seems to be a recipe for disaster – how would you get all your nutrients? Calcium especially is best got from cooked vegetables…Still, start with a large green salad for lunch everyday. You won’t believe how you will begin to crave it – and how much better you feel with only that change!

    I haven’t seen the documentary, but I think the general state of health in this country is self evident. Many problems are caused by lack of access or affordability, but choices are part of the problem too. I can tell you that I feel best when I eat vegetables and a little fish or chicken. If I could, I would eat fish and fruit and veg for every meal. What really gets me cranky is how hard and so very expensive it is getting to be to try to find chicken that is not full of salt water!
    I won’t buy the stuff….I’m awed that you are living off the grid, not easy in any way. We lived close to that way when I was a child, but there is a world of difference between close and off!
    One last thing (well, two): Southern Exposure Seeds and this book, Vegetable Gardening in the Southeast, I have it, great book!

    Hang in there!


I love it when you leave a reply!
