January Journey..Day 3 of my Plant-Based Pescatarian Diet

“Let food be thy medicine.” Hippocrates. This was the opening quote of the 2011 documentary called Forks over Knives that I watched last night on Netflix. It is based on not only eating a plant-based diet like me but also a whole food diet. It was, to say the least, an eye-opener. What I loved …
