After Hitting Rock Bottom,
Forks Over Knives Helped Me Lose 100+ Pounds

By Dustin Rolofson

I had struggled with my weight for many years. While cruising Netflix for documentaries I came across Forks Over Knives. I’m not going to lie. I passed on watching it on numerous occasions. Finally, one time I decided to watch the film. It blew me away! Read the full testimonial here.

Roger Ebert Dead at 70

We are sad to hear about the passing of legendary film critic, Roger Ebert. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family.

Roger holds a special place in our heart. As a little-known independent film, we were honored that he attended a screening in Chicago. The influential but notoriously tough critic gave the film 3 stars and wrote a favorable review. Roger's assessment no doubt helped bring awareness to our work.

Pasta Primavera

By Katelin Mae

Pasta primavera is related to and likely derived from authentic Italian dishes. However this is more accurately a North American dish, created in Nova Scotia and brought to New York City in the early 1970s. Typically, made with olive oil or alfredo, this dish would be high in fat and cholesterol. Luckily, this version keeps the fat to a minimum and is totally health promoting! View the recipe here.
