Educate Yo-self!

Happy Monday everyone!  Hope you all had a fantastic weekend!  Today I wanted to talk about how important it is to educate yourself on what you are putting into your body.  I've recently become a huge fan of health and wellness documentaries, not only because they are extremely eye opening, but because I truly feel that educating myself on food and nutrition helps me to stay motivated, eat clean, and encourage others. 

So this morning I wanted to share with you the top three nutrition documentaries that I've watched over the past couple of months.  They are powerful and will scare the pants off you.  But for me, they have been so motivating to eat cleaner. All of these can be found on Netflix.

1. Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead.
This was one of the first documentaries I ever watched on nutrition and health.  Joe Cross is a successful businessman from Australia who comes to the states to attempt to heal himself of his poor diet, illness, and addiction to bad food.  Along the way not only does he succeed, but he changes the life of a trucker, who in turn pays it forward in his community.  It's a powerful testament to how small changes can impact so many.

2. Forks Over Knives.
This film is powerful.  It opens eyes to the severity and cost of the obesity epidemic sweeping our country.  It advocates for eating fewer animal products, processed food, and more plants!  It emphasizes how important nutrition is for everyone.

3. Hungry for Change.
This documentary is by far, my favorite.  I can even go as far as to say it is LIFE CHANGING.  This documentary pulls together authors and experts to address the issue of diets, chemicals in food, and the cause of the epidemic of obesity and lethargy in our country.  It's powerful and eye opening.

  1. I've watched Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead, but I haven't seen the other two. I'll definitely have to add them to my list. Thanks for sharing!
