Must See: Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead
My dear friend A invited me over to watch it this evening. Very sweet of her. I don't have internet at home and its a download only from Netflix.
We began with a fabulous juice - cucumber, celery, tomato, apple, ginger, peaches, carrots - I think there was more but I'm forgetting. Delicious!
Next we had an amazing spinach salad with hard boiled eggs, asparagus, and a healthy dressing my friend whipped up (totally amazing for a girl incapable of whipping anything up). I love spinach, and I never think to eat it so simply. Genius!
In celebration of the movie, we ate our healthy fair in front of the TV. I confess to a glass of Chardonnay for dessert. I haven't had an adult beverage in weeks. It was very nice!
The meal was wonderful and so filling. The movie was inspirational. It follows a man with weight and health issues on a 60 day juice fast. He meets fascinating people and turns his health around. The story follows him and a fellow he meets along the way named Phil who asks him for help.
I won't give any more away, but....I laughed a lot, I experienced moments where I gasped in horror, I almost cried several times, I left inspired, and Phil is my new hero.
Thank you A and MM for telling me about it! I'm not sure I'm up to a 60 day fast, but I'm inspired to continue my great food experiment of 2011 :-)
