I watched this movie on Amazon and paid $3.99 to rent it.
Only to find out that through my Netflix membership I could have watched it for free on instant streaming.
LOL. Oh, well.
Do I recommend you watch it?
Yes, I do!
It is great to help you get a basic understanding of whole foods eating.
And Rip helps you wrap your brain around making a few simple plant-strong meals. Except for his vegan lasagna. It's not simple, my friends. I tried it.
My own version of vegan lasagna soon to come. Its yummier and about a bazillion times easier (especially if you have a food processor.)
And what kind of name is Rip anyway? Am I the only one who has ever thought this? Tell me I am not the only one.
So watch this, and tell me what you think.
Oh, and major disclaimer --- I don't think kids should eat the way Rip talks about.
Enjoy this link for a more realistic way for kids to eat and gain the normal weight that they should.
And look here for ideas on healthy snacks.
PROJECT VEGAN KIDS
I have friends and family with children who really want to learn how to help kids eat healthy. I have been losing sleep over this, I kid you not. Why? Not knowing what to eat should never come between you and success in optimal health for your family.
I struggle with the same issue. I get in my kitchen. I look around. I see raw veggies and fruit. Grains and nuts.
How do I turn this stuff into what my kids will eat?
Then it hit me last night as I lay sleepless in my bed.
I am going to create a huge picture of the most comprehensive kids food group Pyramid EVER.
Its going to be all in pictures. This does not currently exist.
Pictures are worth a thousand words. Or, as Samuel would say. A bazillion gadjillion words.
So that when you get in your kitchen, you take a look at that big picture. And you see your options, how to make them work, and your anxiety is gone.
Along the way I will post kid-friendly meals and pictures.
I may be in way over my head. If I don't succeed, I will let you know.
This will take some time to put together, but I thought you might like to know what I am up to.
