7 Food Documentaries to Watch Now

7 Food Documentaries You Must Watch.jpg

This past weekend, my husband and I had a strange conversation. He was reading the paper and asked me if I’d heard of this company ‘Monsanto’.


Of course I have! Monsanto is one of the main reasons I elect to purchase organic food. If you’ve never heard of Monsanto, it is time to get educated!

In the course of our discussion, we realized since I was the one buying and preparing the food, I was the only one educating myself and making decisions for my family. I wasn’t including my husband in the discoveries I’ve made about our food system.

We had a great discussion about our food supply and over the next few weeks I’ll be sharing with him some of my favorite food documentaries.

If you are looking to educate yourself on the food we eat, I’d recommend watching these 7 food documentaries:

Hungry for Change – Are we being manipulated by the diet, weight loss and food industry? This is a smart movie starring Jamie Oliver sets out to prove healthy eating leads to better living.

Food Inc – This movie is an expose about the food industry. Questions about feedlots? Questions about GMO crops? This is one to watch. This is a great introduction to ‘Monsanto’ and how they are completely altering our food supply.

Food Matters – If this film sets out to prove the saying, “Let thy Food be thy Medicine and thy Medicine be thy Food” – Hippocrates. We are what we eat. Watch this and see if you agree.

Fresh – Are you interested in reforming our food supply? Fresh gives good, basic information about what is happening with our food supply.

King Corn – It is mind boggling how many products contain corn. Not corn-on-the-cob, but corn that has been processed and used to make so much of our food. Learn how corn is the basis of our entire American diet.

Forks Over Knives – This movie poses the question: If we eliminate or limit refined, processed and animal based foods, can we eliminate or reverse disease? What happens when we follow a plant based diet?

If you have Amazon Prime, you can watch these movies FREE!

    This is an awesome list! I have watched all of them over the last couple months and I re watch them with my husband! We have been so enlightened!

  2. Awesome list! My personal favorite is Forks Over Knives. 🙂 I would like to add Fat Sick And Nearly Dead. It’s a little different, but has the same overall idea.

  3. I loved Forks Over Knives too Erin. I haven’t watched Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead but several peeps have recommended it – so it’s definitely something I’ll watch soon! Andrea

  4. Thanks Vanessa!

  5. Thanks for the recommendations. We have seen Food, Inc. before, and it’s on again tonight on tpt’s POV from 9-11 p.m. I’ve also seen Fat, Sick, & Almost Dead – a goodie. The rest I haven’t seen and will check into them TODAY! I now make everything from scratch with whole foods and so I “gobble” these kind of documentaries up. 🙂

  6. Hi Jane, Oh yay! Another real foodie – so glad you like the list! I haven’t seen Fat, Sick and Dead but it has been recommended several times. I’m going to see if I can get it on Amazon tonight. Happy whole food cooking! Andrea

    Almost all of these are on my netflix que, basicAlly any documentary I could find is, so far I have watched hungry for change; food matters; vegucated; and fat, sick, and nearly dead (my favorite kindof, so far) I am new to this journey and have a reluctant family, but since mynchildren arenyoung they are adapting fine, my husband…. not so much so some stuff I am finding really is helping and in a few months we have come so far

  8. I haven ‘t watched any of these yet but I thought farmageddon , was a good watch.

  9. Suzanne, I haven’t watched Famageddon but several of you have recommeded it. Too bad I can’t host a movie night – it would be fun to watch some of these with a group, wouldn’t it? Thanks for the recommendation! Andrea

  10. Lynette, I hope you enjoy the food documentaries. I know they really impacted my husband when he watched them with me. Now we make more of our decisions together. Andrea

  11. One that I saw recently is called “More Than Honey” which talked about small, medium and large scale bee farming, and how dependent we are on bees for agriculture. Another reason to be organic!

  12. Thanks for sharing Natalie! I’ll put that on my must watch list!

  13. how about FED UP?
