I just wanted to say thanks to whomever gave out the information about the Forks Over Knives documentary. I can't remember who started that conversation. (Sorry.) That DVD was awesome and very eye opening. I recommend it to anyone who has or has had cancer or for anyone who cares for someone who does. It really gave me a lot to think about. It's got my husband and I heavily considering a plant based diet.
Also, Bennette posted some directions to find a link on MD Anderson's website for a video by Dr. David Servan-Schreiber. Here's a link to this if anyone is interested. It is 90 minute long, but there is a timer in the upper left corner so you can write down the time if you have to leave it and come back to it later. Anyway, thanks for that info, Bennette!
All that being said, I'm looking for some recommendations on good cookbooks for a plant based diet. I need info. on nutritional values and putting meals together, etc. This way of eating (WOE) would be a complete change for us and especially me, since I do all the cooking. (We both grew up in meat and potato or casserole households.) I'd like books/cookbooks that have normal ingredients that don't require you to fly to other countries to do your grocery shopping. LOL Our grocery store has a fairly decent organic section and it's only 30 minutes to an Earthfare store. If anyone has any suggestions, please let me know. I feel like this will be akin to learning to walk again or something. lol
