Forks Over Knives in F&W

Food and Wine features Forks Over Knives.

On Monday, December 13, Food and Wine magazine posted an entry on its “Mouthing Off” blog, discussing the plant-based documentary Forks Over Knives. The blog entry, written by Chelsea Morse, discusses how vegetables are “finally gaining respect,” and expands on the idea, saying that the documentary asks people to go a step further and give up all animal products. Morse discusses how Forks Over Knives claims that diseases, such as diabetes and hypertension, can be treated and reversed through plant-based diets. She also emphasizes how individuals in the film, “shed pounds and find new levels of energy,” saying that she herself was, “inspired by the message that we can control our own health through our diets.”
