I really love to learn. I love to read. I love to watch documentaries. And I am easily swayed by them. Hey, at least I am aware of it. I watched "Food Matters" this past week (thanks for the idea, Priscilla!) and found it to be fascinating. (I use that word a lot.) I highly recommend it--it is available streaming on Netflix. I think it's going to change the way I eat. I am wanting to head more towards the vegetarian persuasion. Not totally--I don't think that would be practical. But I am definitely going to be cutting back on meat drastically. (Technically I think I will be called a pescetarian, or semi-vegetarian with a leaning towards the Mediterranean diet.) And also I am really interested in doing more with vitamins. Well, I just think you should all watch this movie and see what you think.
(Ryan thinks I will only last a month on my new plan. But I have done really good with giving up Diet Coke, cutting back on sugar and eating oatmeal every day. I am ready to take on the challenge of less meat and more raw fruits, veggies, beans and nuts! Recipes, anyone?)
