Fire!

So my goal is to start blogging more than once a season again! My last post was summer love!  Oops!

Today is World Vegetarian Day! I know a lot of you are not vegetarian's and that is fine, but I am noticing a lot of people who do eat meat are trying to eat it less.What about you?

Speaking of eating less meat. I saw an awesome film Thursday Night called Forks Over Knives. I blogged about it over a year ago when I found out it was coming to theatres. Well, I FINALLY got to see it, and it did not disappoint! It was super informative and has really made me look at mine and my families consumption of animal protein. It was showing how studies have proven that animal protein has the ability to turn cancer cells on!  I have played around with veganism before, but after seeing this film I am thinking a little harder about it...and so is my MOM! What? and Matt! Double What?

I asked Matt after the film if he would be interested in going vegan (he has SUPER high cholesterol) and his words were, "I'll do whatever, just put a trough in front of me." So I'm taking that as a yes! I just have to really work on finding cheese substitutes for him...

Which led me straight to the used book store to pick up this red beauty...

This is a book about a firefighter who turned his firehouse vegan for the sake of all their health. He  says that firefighters #1 cause of death is heart disease and NOT fire related injuries...interesting huh? I figure if his recipes worked on a whole firehouse, surely they will work for my man too! And just in case the book didn't work, I got this too for a little extra motivation for him...or ME!

Kidding, I did not buy that!

Regardless of how it goes, we will definitely be consuming LESS animal protein. Dairy in particular!

And since we are on the topic of FIRE...here is another one of my recent purchases.

Somebody call 911...Adrianne's gonna die on the gym floor...whoa!!!!
I lasted for a whole 10 minutes today! That's something right?
Trying again tomorrow!!!

Have a great fall weekend!
