The Coachella Valley is home to some of the best Farmer’s Markets, produce, and green communities.  We also have restaurants that cater to Vegan and vegetarians.  Not to mention our world famous windmills, Green Organizations, and community gardens.  For a desert located out in the middle of nowhere in Southern California we are pretty progressive, if I do say so myself…

This week we have been presented with the opportunity to be able to watch the Foodie Friendly film, Forks Over Knives.  These are super special screenings, as the film doesn’t officially reach the movie theaters until March of 2011.   Pretty awesome, right?!?!

Check it out:

Synopsis

What has happened to us? Despite the most advanced medical technology in the world, we are sicker than ever by nearly every measure.

Two out of every three of us are overweight. Cases of diabetes are exploding, especially amongst our younger population. About half of us are taking at least one prescription drug. Major medical operations have become routine, helping to drive health care costs to astronomical levels. Heart disease, cancer and stroke are the country’s three leading causes of death, even though billions are spent each year to “battle” these very conditions. Millions suffer from a host of other degenerative diseases.

Could it be there’s a single solution to all of these problems? A solution so comprehensive but so utterly straightforward, that it’s mind-boggling that more of us haven’t taken it seriously?
