You are what you eat!

juice fast review

We're trying to turn over a new 'leaf' - so to speak - after getting very motivated by 3 incredible documentary movies:

Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead (http://www.fatsickandnearlydead.com/)

Food Matters (http://www.foodmatters.tv/)

Forks over Knives (http://www.forksoverknives.com/)

Hippocrates was right when he said: "Let Food be your Medicine and Medicine be your Food." These movies are overwhelmingly inspiring (just watch the trailers!), and have caused us to take a look at what we're eating.  It feels great to add more raw foods and replace many of the processed foods we're used to. The world would be such a healthier place if everyone took more care about what we put in our mouths. Hearing people say they only plan to live til they're maybe 50 based on the way they're eating -- how sad! I want to live to be twice that age for sure - be able to play with my kids and grandkids.  I know I won't choose to never eat something 'yummy and bad' again, but I'm motivated to help us make good changes overall in our eating habits.

  1. I saw Fat Sick and Nearly Dead and went right out and bought a juicer. I've LOVED using it! Good luck in turning over your new "leaf" too... :)
