Are you interested in eating healthier? What about feeling healthier? Have you been hearing about "plant-based diets" or a "vegan lifestyle" but have felt overwhelmed, confused or not knowing where the heck to start? Changing year-old habits or often times life-long habits is hard. It helps to learn and to try things out but, it can be even more transformative when you are inspired. The following list of food documentaries are ones that I have found helpful, either when I was starting out or they have offered little nudges or confirmations along the way.
1. FOOD CHOICES
In my humble opinion this is one of the best, if not the best food documentary out there looking at how our food choices are either helping or harming our health. It also takes a look at how our dietary decisions are harming this planet that we call home.
