Announcing: Forks Over Knives DVD Giveaway

forks over knivesSeveral months ago, I did a post about the Forks Over Knives Trailer.  Today, I have 2 Forks Over Knives DVDs up for grabs.

I watched Forks Over Knives this weekend and this documentary motivated and inspired me to continue eating a whole-foods, plant-based diet more than ever.

What is Forks Over Knives?

“Forks Over Knives examines the profound claim that most, if not all, of the degenerative diseases that afflict us can be controlled, or even reversed, by rejecting animal-based and processed foods.

The major storyline traces the personal journeys of Dr. T. Colin Campbell, a nutritional biochemist from Cornell University, and Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, former top surgeon at the world-renowned Cleveland Clinic.  Inspired by remarkable discoveries they made, these men conducted several groundbreaking studies.  Their separate research led them to the same startling conclusion:  degenerative diseases like heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and even several forms of cancer, could almost always be prevented – and in many cases reversed-by adopting a whole-foods, plant-based diet.

The idea of food as medicine is put to the test.  Cameras follow “reality patients’ who have chronic conditions from heart disease to diabetes.  Doctors teach patients how to adopt a whole-foods, plant-based diet as the primary approach to treat their ailments – while the challenges and triumphs of their journeys are revealed.

The film features leading experts on health and tackles the issue of diet and disease in a way that will have people talking for years.” (quote from back of DVD)

About Raw for Dessert

Raw for Dessert is a raw vegan dessert book written by Jennifer Cornbleet.  Jennifer is the best-selling author of Raw Food Made Easy Raw for Dessert is a very simple recipe book and I love the simplicity of this book.  Raw for dessert has a total of 119 pages and you will find it very easy to navigate.

What You Can Expect

In the beginning of Raw for Dessert, the author gives you a lot of information on what you will need to make the desserts in her book.  She tells you the following:

  • Ingredients you will need
  • Equipment you will need
  • Serving ware you will need
  • Techniques you will need
  • Knife skills you will need.

Don’t worry guys, everything she tells you is so simple, even a child can assist you in making these yummy desserts.

Basic recipes which include almond milk, dates paste, vanilla cashew cream, chocolate cashew cream and more.

  • Fruit Desserts
  • Sorbets, Ice Cream, and Sundaes
  • Pies and Tarts
  • Creamy Desserts

I made the Banana Cream Pie and it was delicious.  The author says that the Banana Cream Pie will last for three days.  Well, you don’t have to worry about keeping this pie for three days, because this pie will disappear in no time.  :)

The Banana Cream Pie will remind you of a Banana Pudding.  Once you make the Banana Cream Pie and share it with your family and friends, they will be begging you to make this dessert again and again.
