I watched Forks Over Knives last night. Oh dear. The movie made it very clear that animal products are setting me up to have breast cancer and Rob to have diabetes. Such a bummer. Let my crisis of faith in ice cream and potato salad and hamburgers begin! Right before Fourth of July no less. It's not the first time a documentary or book has made me reconsider some of my decisions. Here's a few other documentaries and what I've learned from them:
Waiting for 'Superman' and The Lottery: The US public education system is turning my kids into dopes.
The Business of Being Born: Ella was induced and I had a c-secion with my boys? The horror!!
Food Inc.: I haven't eaten at McDonald's since watching it, except for 2 ice cream cones. Sinner.
Born to Run: Yay for running, boo for shoes.
How do you process information that defies everything you thought was true? Especially if it seems like you're powerless to make a difference? I like to start small with my family. Otherwise I'll probably get squashed like a bug. Off to buy some creamed coconut milk! Cows might finally be getting a break from me for a while.
Anyone else converted to Amazon Instant Video? I have. Poor old Netflix.
