Engine 2 Diet

Saturday, January 14, 2012

Forks Over Knives presents "Engine 2 Diet", a film set up like a reality show, in the sense that a healthy & fit firefighter visits two families to help them rescue their kitchens & put out the bodily fires of disease that are jeopardizing their health. (The firefighter, Rip Esselstyn, is actually the great grandson of the famous poet Carl Sandburg!) He takes the families on a grocery store trip, emphasizing whole plant-based foods, the importance of reading labels, and avoiding animal products of any kind including dairy, as well as no oil or overly processed foods.

Rip helped his hometown fire company, Engine 2, rescue their health through a 28-day challenge of going completely plant-based It arose out of a bet, really. After the pilot studies at his home station showed amazing results in lowering cholesterol and losing weight, he decided to share his method with the world.

Engine 2 Diet has a website, lots of helpful resources, recipes, grocery lists and print-outs. *link below*

This diet is not just for firefighters! As Rip says, "The holy trinity of plant-based diets is phytochemicals, antioxidants and fiber." Those are elements we all need and thrive on, no matter what our particular dietary format is. He continues, "the three elements of plants (mentioned above) put a wet rag on the fires of disease in our bodies."

Here's to your whole body health!
Love,
Jessica

    Engine 2: Kitchen Rescue is a wonderful film! One that I will recommend to all my mentoring students in transitioning from a S.A.D. eating program to a healthier program.

Very nice review!
