New Documentaries On Living a Healthy, Organic Lifestyle: Part 2 And Giveaway Time!
A social experiment to follow 3 New Yorkers adopting a vegan diet for six weeks, Vegucated is a very insightful documentary on the importance of veganism. I enjoyed watching the movie as it discussed the importance of being more aware about food and our food system. It shows real-life people changing their habits and attitudes about food. The only downside is the quality of the video, it was a little amateurish.
Simply Raw focuses on six Americans who have severe diabetes. With the right motivation and nutritional guidance, they set off to reverse their diabetes in 30 days by adopting a raw food diet.
If you like Vegucated, you will enjoy Simply Raw as this movie shows the next step in the healthy eating process, eating a raw diet. It was really informative. I caught myself nodding in agreement with the food experts in the movie.
Let me start off by saying, this documentary is hilarious! I forgot it was a documentary at first. Two college-buddies start their own corn farm and track the journey of their crops into the food system. The results are shocking. The documentary will leave you looking at food differently and questioning how much of your burger, toast, beer and cheese are made of corn.
Although I grew up with Dr. Bronner’s soaps, I never understood the story behind the company. After watching the movie, I have more even more brand loyalty. Dr. Bronner is a chemist, Holocaust survivor and mental hospital escapee. His kids explain their lives growing up with their father and and discuss his adversities, triumphs and journey of developing a popular household product. If you ever started your own business or want to, this movie will inspire you to push through your inner demons and discover your passion.
Hungry for Change is similar to FoodMatters. The movie highlights a panel of health experts and their view points on health, fitness and the food system. The documentary does a good job of explaining why a standard American diet leads millions to poor health and why dieting for a healthy life is problematic. I am not a huge fan of this the documentary as some of the information was over the top; however, I did enjoy watching the different cameos from the experts. You can watch the first 20 minutes of the film for free at http://www.hungryforchange.tv.
One of the experts in Hungry for Change is, Joe Cross, from the documentary Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead. After watching the film I ended up juicing a few days later. If you haven’t seen it you can watch Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead below for free!
