UPDATE – 5 more documentaries added to the list at the bottom. Thanks for the suggestions!
Did you know that 90% of the food Americans buy is processed?
Even the fast food you personally don’t eat matters; have you ever heard anyone you love say “I’m not hurting anyone else, its my own choice to eat what I like” or “Life is short, I’ll eat what I want”? The problem is that what they are choosing to eat jeopardizes not only their health but the health of the planet and everyone else. In fact everything we put in our mouth is a choice – a choice to either support planetary health or a choice to participate in its exploitation and destruction. Every bite you take is either nutrient rich and good for your body or toxic and damaging to your body.
So this is a list of the Top 10 food documentaries, some of which will be familiar to many of you. If you haven’t yet really committed to change, any one of these films will inspire you to begin making healthier choices for yourself and thus your planet.
1. Forks Over Knives
A documentary about two doctors serious about turning poor health around by banishing meat and dairy and how a vegetable and whole grain diet can prevent cancer and diabetes. A very nutritionally-informative documentary that will put anyone not feeling up to par back the right track. Watch the trailer here or watch for free at Hulu.
This must-see movie is unique in that it is gives very empowering ideas for how to live better and it really offers solutions to the devastating yet accepted food issues in this country. Watch the trailer at the film site.
3. Food, Inc.
This very popular movie gives you the whole breakdown on the unadulterated truth about where your food comes from. Again, good for the whole family and a big eye opener for people who haven’t had any exposure to the devastating truth about how food is sourced. Watch the trailer or the movie.
