Forks Over Knives

Made a new years resolution to eat less meat? A new movie, Forks Over Knives, opens in Portland this week and it looks like just the ticket to get you off to a healthy 2011. The movie explores the result of an American diet high on animal products and processed foods. One of the "patients" they follow scarfs down a fast-food double cheeseburger, onion rings, and a chocolate shake for dinner every night. 

The Oregonian says, "It would be a shame if this information-rich documentary about the benefits of a plant-based diet ends up only speaking to the choir." Starts tonight, runs for a week at the Fox Tower. Get up offa that thing and get downtown.....
