As someone who is passionate about health, I can tell you that I am avid about staying as educated I can, and food documentaries have been an integral part of my success with health. Food documentaries that have been made over the last few years have changed the way I eat, think, and see the society that we live in. I personally feel we live in a society that tells us it is normal to eat junk food, too many animal sources of protein, and live on fast food and prescription drugs for survival. At the core of it, nutrition is becoming a trend instead of a priority. Food documentaries changed the way I think about the way I treat my body as well. These films are anything but boring, and in my opinion, extremely interesting and revolutionary. Check a few of them out if you can from your local library, or view them online. They’are also available on Amazon for just a few dollars if you’re interested. I hope you love them as much as I do.
1. Food Inc
I was required to watch Food Inc. for a class in college, and this is by far one of my favorite food documentaries to date. It is the most raw, eye-opening experience I’ve ever had in regards to my food, the supermarket industry, the lies the government tells us, and they way advertising has affected our health. More so than that, it revealed to me how important a plant based diet was, and it immediately changed the way I ate and feel. This movie is a must watch for everyone in my opinion.
