Fat, Sick, Juicy, and Almost Dead

Drink This.

Rescuing this post with way too many links, from the drafts folder, but after a year sitting there, the topics are coming up again. This one’s for Papa Ho Ho.

The Juice:

The “Juicy People” at work and my extended family were interested in the movies we’ve been devouring about food, so it was time to dust off this post and prep it for release. Welcome back, SFDada.

We’re on our 3rd device for juicing and think we’ve found a great gadget. A little mortified by the infomercial, with David Wolfe, but the Nutribullet is just so fast and easy, it really allows for no more excuses to juice up.

David Wolfe is in a few of the movies I’m listing below, so even though the infomercial was a bit repellent I at least knew who he was and knew he has a lot of interesting things to say about nutrition and the health of your skin.

I ordered ours at Amazon, but my mom picked one up at Macy’s with a big %-off coupon and got the best deal for about $70. I don’t know this guy, but he does a great job talking about the thing in 8 minutes.

The old post on the movies:

A few years ago, Red1 wanted to go vegan. Over the years we’ve been watching a lot of documentaries on Netflix on the subject of food and health. A good friend at work also writes a vegan blog, “Healthy Living on a plant based diet”, so we seem to have really good support now. I think we’re now in the market for a good juicer.

Red1 has enjoyed them all. She became quite over the top after watching So much so, her friend’s mother asked us to try to get her to stop lecturing their family about the cows who stand in their own poop and the sad little chickens and turkeys the fast food farms in America.

Today we spent a good amount of time at the supermarket buying some good fruit and vegetables to restock the kitchen properly. Last night, after watching a double feature of Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead and , I went through the kitchen and cleared out some of the worst junk on the counters and cupboards.

A good list of films to add to your Netflix queue:

  • Food, Inc.
  • Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead
  • Forks Over Knives
  • Hungry for Change

The Beautiful Truth… which is the one about the Gerson Therapy, if you haven’t really heard about it, it’s worth looking into. It’s pretty much the cure for everything. The film will lead you to more related films available at Netflix.

We’ve updated the links here to try to be more long-lived. In 2019, there are sites like https://www.justwatch.com/ that attempt to show you where your films and TV shows are available on the platforms that you subscribe to. Isn’t technology awesome?

  1. I'm too scared to watch Food, Inc. yet, but I should. I saw that supersize me film… about 6 years ago and haven't eaten fast food since. I should watch the others. I watched a documentary on Netflix… can't remember the name of it. It was about a murder. It was really good.

  2. Scary is good. I kept watching these like horror movies. Now I'm feeling more knowledgable about how my digestive system works, how food works, and how most of the stuff in the grocery store isn't really food at all, but food-like science experiments. As far as the girls go, these are great health, biology, history, and economic lessons too.

  3. I do love natural juices. Haven't had a flu or cold for ten years thanks to drinking freshly squeezed fruit and honey every single day 🙂
