Top Health Food Documentaries I'd Recommend

 In December, I watched a bunch of healthy food documentaries. They're all vegan documentaries, and they helped me finally kick start my vegan change. Here are some of the best ones!

Forks over Knives
 This is probably one of the ultimate movies there are that will make you go vegan! It's not a slaughter movie, but explains the health benefits of going vegan over eating meat on a more scientific level using the findings of Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn and T. Colin Campbell, Ph.D. I highly recommend this one for the more health-oriented or intellectual type.

The Engine 2 Kitchen Rescue
 This is kind of a sequel to Fork over Knives made by Rip Esselstyn, the firefighter son of Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, one of the scientists in the first movie. In this one, he goes over how to start making the change by giving you examples of great food choices, simple recipes, and information on which foods has the nutrients we need. The information is super helpful, plus he's not bad to look at. lol

(2 more super helpful healthy food documentaries after the jump!)

Food Matters
 Another health-based vegan documentary, but this one is more about the raw vegan diet and how the medical industry would rather profit off of people's poor health by covering up the symptoms instead of curing the disease. Even if you don't want to go raw, this is still a great watch from a medical standpoint.

 A great documentary! This one follows 3 people and their mentor as she helps educate them about veganism and how they can do it successfully. I have to warn you, this movie does have some slaughtering in it, but is more about the facts than the scare factor. Great movie if you want to start with the basics of veganism.

 So those are my favorite vegan documentaries. Maybe this will help some of my readers if they've been thinking of making the change! :)


  1. Have you actually gone Vegan now? I know last we talked you were still eating cheese and fish.

    1. Yep! I've been vegan for about 2 months now, I believe. :)

    2. I hate how Blogger never notifies someone they have been replied too.

      No cheese, fish, or Thai tea? Shocking. I honestly didn't think you'd be able to do it. Congrats.
