The food-documentary-athon continued this week and I was very pleasantly surprised to find a feel-good movie tucked into the lineup.
The documentaries so far have been very good and have altered the way I am connecting with food. ‘Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead’ really stands out among these for several reasons but the biggest take-away was how easy it can be to add fresh fruits and vegetables into an always busy family.
The movie follows the journey of Joe Cross, an Australian on a road trip across America with his Breville juicer to regain his health. Joe is on a 60 day fast, consuming only fresh juice from his juicer. It was inspiring to watch as he lost the pounds and found himself.
While I won’t be attempting any juice-only fasts, there was a Breville juicer ordered and I am looking forward to adding some more fresh fruits and vegetables into my life in the form of fresh juice. Watch for seasonally fresh recipes in the near future.
