This is an eye-opening movie. I actually learned vital information by watching this documentary. This caused an immediate change in our household - and we already had a fairly
good quality diet. (We already had a no soda - no HFCS - minimal packaged food home). However, we did have "healthy" cereals on occassion, and yogurts in the house, along with
fresh squeezed orange juice on occasion for smoothies. Orange juice - gone that day. Now we just peel two oranges and throw them into the blender.
Yogurt with added sugar - thrown away. In fact, we went so far as to call my son's best friend's mother to let her know that he would no
longer be eating some of the treats that she gets for the boys (supposedly healthier choices). We now plan our meals for the week based
on protein and vegetables. We are lucky enough to live near the Farmer's Market at the Grove so we now do our shopping there at
the poulterer, the butcher, the french market, and the fruit and vegetable stands. My son is making dinner at least once per week. We are
eating real food, with real variety. I highly recommend this movie. It breaks everything down to an easily digestible serving! (I have already
purchased 12 copies and given them out to the people I love.
