I started learning about nutrition and the impact that food has on our lives after becoming really sick. I read all healthy eating books I could get my hands on and watched dozens of food documentaries. The knowledge that I gained allowed me to cure myself from chronic acid reflux, build a healthy relationship with food and made me a more responsible and compassionate citizen of our planet.
Below is a list of seven food documentaries that changed my life forever. Without them, I wouldn’t be the person I am today. I highly recommend everyone to watch them. Food plays an essential role in our lives. Yet, we know so little about it. Let’s change that!
1. Food Matters
2. Hungry for Change
3. Food Inc.
5. Forks over Knives
7. Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead
Most of these documentaries can be found on Netflix and all of them are available for purchase online. I really hope that you watch at least some of them, and don’t forget to share with your loved ones.
WARNING: have a tissue box ready. Some of the footage is shocking and I personally could not watch it without crying.
