I am always eager to read more books and watch more movies / documentaries on the subject of plant based nutrition. I find it tremendously motivating, encouraging, and inspiring.
Step in: A Delicate Balance. My husband and I watched this online (only $4.95) and we both thought it was fantastic. Grab a pen and paper while you’re watching it to take some notes because it’s filled with information and facts worth throwing around at your next party. This is the kind of stuff that is perfect when answering the many questions like “Why do you eat the way you do?” Better yet, gather some family and friends around your computer and watch it together. I kept thinking while I was watching it… “So-and-so should see this. Oh! And, so-and-so should also see this!”
It featured some of my heroes:
~ Dr. T. Colin Campbell (author of The China Study – The Most Comprehensive Study of Nutrition Ever Conducted and the Startling Implications for Diet, Weight Loss and Long-term Health)
~ Dr. Neal Barnard (author of many books, including Breaking the Food Seduction: The Hidden Reasons Behind Food Cravings—And 7 Steps to End Them Naturally)
~ Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn (author of Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease – The Revolutionary, Scientifically Proven, Nutritionally-Based Cure )
Here is a description from the main website:
A Delicate Balance documents the latest discoveries of some of the most prominent experts on nutrition in the world. Over 50 years of research is skilfully woven into what feels like a detective unravelling the mysteries behind the disease epidemic which has struck affluent countries with a vengeance – disease has been escalating over the last 50 years resulting in 1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women being diagnosed with cancer.
Watching this film will help you make informed choices about your health and the environment around you and how to reduce your personal impact.
