The Vegetarian Society of El Paso is screening Chow Down on July 8 at 7:30 at Chamizal. The movie is a documentary that looks at reversing heart disease with a vegan diet. Sound familiar? Like Forks Over Knives, Chow Down features Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, father of Austin plant celebrity Rip Esselstyn. I haven’t seen Chow Down yet, but the positive health effects of a plant-based diet are getting a lot of deserved attention lately.
Check out a trailer before, and see more trailers on the movie’s website.
If you’re not in El Paso, check out the video on Hulu, where the whole thing can be seen for free.
