We have chosen Forks over Knives

Where has time gone?

About five weeks ago, Stacey Beth and her hubby had an intervention with themselves and with us. We sat and watched the documentary Forks over Knives, which can be seen on their site:  or rented from Netflix or Amazon Prime.

I can only encourage you to watch it and really open your brain to what is presented.
Since that time we have employed this into our lives and I would  like to journal with Stacey Beth some of what we discover on the way.  I have not told her yet... but she will know by Friday.

IN addition this week Terry and I watched Engine2Diet Documentary also on Netflix. The site is   It further educated us and we made more adjustments this week.  We are starting our day with Numedica Vegan drinks that contain a hardy amount of plant protein mixed with three fruits always including blueberries. We buy vanilla in the drink, but this is chocolate on the page and it will show you the information you need for nutrition.  We buy it from NorthLake Health Foods as Steve meets the online prices and ships free.

Meanwhile we had our first attempt at really healthy spaghetti. We surveyed our fresh veggies and used Portebella mushrooms, broccoli, onions, carrots, black beans, fresh tomatoes, fresh black olives (no oils), cauliflower and then of course whole wheat pasta. (Stacey wants us to try Rice Pasta next...but the whole wheat pasta is 9 grams of protein by itself.)  We did use one can of organic tomato paste. 


And then Terry had seconds:

There was a huge amount of protein but it was all plant based. Had we used ground meat we would have had much less protein. We will be doing this in an attempt to improve our health and energy as we launch into our sixties. Stay tuned as Stacey Beth and I keep up with our journey.

For health and strength and daily Bread,  We give you thanks, O Lord.
