Never before have I been so moved by a documentary to think that I would actually make substantial changes to my lifestyle.  Forks Over Knives has forced me to reexamine the way I eat, and it brought on tremendous changes, beginning with a vegetarian diet, and ultimately leading me to the plant-based diet I now follow.


While this blog is focused on a plant-based diet, I have somehow been spellbound by agricultural policy and our food system, so look for those items under the category “Big Issues.”

For musings on my transition to my current diet and its role in my everyday life, read posts under the “My Journey” category.

One for the Road” consists of quotes, videos, and other pieces of inspiration, all food-related.

And for all of the reactions to my diet, the good, bad, and confused, you may be interested in the “Reactions” category.


Known in my family for my poor eating habits, this will be an interesting, challenging, and hopefully rewarding journey.

  1. I am so glad that you commented on my blog so that I could find yours! Sounds like we were both moved by Forks Over Knives and are in the same “transition point”. I’ve already read a few of your posts and they’ve completely sucked me in. Can’t wait to follow your journey to a more plant-based diet! =)

  2. Forks Over Knives is amazing and I am so glad that you took it to heart. Congratulations on making the commitment to move toward veganism. Here’s to an amazing 2012!

  4. Yay for you! Fast Food Nation turned me into a vegetarian and The China Study convinced me to go vegan. The power of books (and movies)!
