After watching Forks Over Knives the other night, I am even more sold on this plant-based diet. If you haven't watched this film yet, I highly recommend that you do so. I thought I was fairly well educated on nutrition and health but I learned so much more about more, especially in regards to heart disease!
Yesterday I hit our local library to gather more research, grabbed the McDougall book and cookbook as well as Vegan Planet. All are chock-full of recipes which I'll be sharing soon!
Last night Beren and I went to a Mexican restaurant for dinner. Since I planned ahead and browsed the menu beforehand, I knew that they had some vegetarian options...
I decided on the veggie fajitas and am so glad I did as they were delicious! I ignored the refried beans and rice that accompanied the meal, found that half of this order was more than enough for me.
P.S. as my dear friend Blue Orchid reminded me, there are a zillion calories in margaritas..sigh..which I why I rarely imbibe... now & then, though, an indulgence is called for.
