Tonight Richard and I took advantage of the children being off on camp and had a week night date night. We headed to Life Changing Events doco Forks over Knives. It's not really Richard's thing he leaves it to me to get all the food sorted and then happily enough eats what I give him, but I really wanted him to have some buy in on it to. So it was great that he got to come and see and he enjoyed it :)
The documentary is really eye opening. I am sure it is available in your DVD store. Life Changing Events run these nights in conjunction with organic food growers on the Gold Coast. They also have yummy organic meals - tonight we had Japanese Pancake and Mushroom with Leek Ragout - so good. We finished with a dessert each as well - totally fabulous.
The panel after the movie was pretty heated - each of the panelists had their own very strong views as did some audience members. I loved having the chance to meet Dr Libby - The Real Food Chef. FreeLea - aka Banana Girl was also on the panel and while I personally don't subscribe to her way of eating it was certainly interesting to hear her take on things. The message was quite clear from all four panelists - find what works for you - no one way will fit all people. Discussions included increasing plant food, vegetarianism, vegan-ism and raw food vs cooked food. It really reaffirmed that I feel comfortable with where we are on our clean eating journey.
Here is the DVD trailer - well worth a watch if you get the chance to get the DVD out.
