Check Out This List Of Movies To Learn More About Your Food

Below are a list of movies that have some good information. You probably won't agree with everything that is identified in these movies, but there will be lots of time when you will say "hmmm", when you will scratch your head, and when your mouth will drop from the shock. 
Become enlightened about your food!

I tried to compile a list of movies that are on Netflix, but some of the movies may no longer be there. If a movie is not on Netflix now then try the other movies on this list, there are plenty of others to watch.

Fat Sick and Nearly Dead
Food Matters
Killer At Large Gerson Miracle
Hungry For Change
CNBC Originals: One Nation Overweight
Fed Up
Forks Over Knives
Supersize Me

Forks Over Knives Presents: The Engine 2 Kitchen Rescue
To Market to Market to Buy a Fat Pig
King Corn
Colony (about why bees are imp.)
A River of Waste
Save The Farm
Food Beware : The French Organic Revolution
Bag It
The Garden

Food Inc.-This is one of those movies that seems to come and go on Netflix.  If its not there you might try a video store or try purchasing from Ebay or Amazon

From the Freezer To Your Plate

Healthy food can be convenient.  When you cook your dishes try to make extra and freeze individually so you can have a quick meal for those times when you do not feel like cooking.  Many healthy foods freeze well so plan to make extra whenever you have an opportunity, to help keep you on track.

Below is a Cauliflower pizza made with leftover pizza crust and hamburger patties that were frozen separately.  I added some other leftovers and in less than 5 minutes I had a great meal.  Bon Appetit!

What's On The Plate:  Snap peas, Cauliflower Pizza Crust-pg. 28 with leftover hamburger patty -pg. 26 (see pic below) and leftover sauteed onions and bell peppers topped with a little salsa, Collard green salad-pg. 35, orange slices and lime water.

Eating At A Restaurant: Golden Corral....The Buffet Restaurant Tip

Whenever I go to a buffet restaurant I ALWAYS fill up on a salad first.  It keeps you from over doing it on poor choices.  However, there are times when I do indulge on some of my favorite things. Usually I get a slice of pizza (a food I LOVE to eat but I try not to eat too much) and french fries.  So my salad beforehand keeps me from eating a plate of pizza and fries.  

Fries and Pizza my favorite foods.  I did not have pizza on this day because they were out of it when I went to get some.  I think that was a blessing in disguise. lol
