Vegan Style Documentaries #2

In my opinion, this one of the best documentaries around at the moment. It’s a very new documentary, as it appeared in 2016. I like ‘Food Choices’, because it’s a very clear and easy to understand documentary and a lot of important aspects are mentioned. It’s about animal cruelty, the environment and also about what a plant-based diet does to your health. It’s like an all in one package. After watching it, you have a very clear idea of what is happening to the world. You will understand that by simply choosing the food on your plate, you can actually make a difference: A difference for the animals and all the unnecessary suffering, A difference for the world we are living in and where the next generation has to grow up in, A difference in your health. If you want to watch the documentary, then go to their website. You can watch it via the website itself or you can order the dvd. Oh and it’s also on Netflix, yay!

This is a really interesting documentary. I’m a big fan of this documentary! It’s all about your health and how the food industries are telling you lies. About that the food industries want us to buy things and how they get us to buy things. They especially talking about sugar and how bad it is for you and how much sugar you’re actually eating/drinking without really realising. It’s shows you that everything is about money and that they don’t care about your health at all. They show you what is wrong with the ‘food’ available nowadays. It also shows you what it does to you and your body, but the best part is, they also show you what happens if you are changing that. A lot of interesting people are talking, a lot of you probably know from other documentaries or tv. If you want to watch this documentary you can go to their website. You can watch it via the website or you can order the dvd. But again.. it’s also on Netflix!

Vegan-style Documentaries

Why are you vegan? A question I get asked a lot. People always assume it’s because of all the poor animals. And yes, that is my main reason. I simply do not believe we should be in charge of life and death. All animals have the desire to live and abusing and killing them for our own pleasure just isn’t right. But there are so many more reasons why I am vegan. 2 very close together reasons are my overall health and the environment. Now to learn more about these 3 reasons I want to recommend these three documentaries: ‘Earthlings’, ‘Forks Over Knives’ and ‘Cowspiracy’.

EL‘Earthlings’ is a 2005 American documentary and is written, produced and directed by Shaun Monson. It’s divided in 5 chapters: pets, food, clothing, entertainment and scientific research. I have to be honest, it’s very hard to watch it all the way to the end. Also I felt very angry and powerless after watching it. But I would still recommend it, because this is the truth and we can’t close our eyes to that. ‘Earthlings’ is a documentary who opened many peoples eyes. You can watch the full documentary on You Tube.

FOK‘Forks Over Knives’ is one of the first vegan related documentaries I watched myself and it’s still one of my favourites. It’s a 2011 American documentary directed by Lee Fulkerson and produced by John Corry. It’s about that most (or maybe even all) diseases can be controlled or even reversed by a whole foods plant based diet. Now that is interesting isn’t it? It’s a very clear and easy to follow documentary and you can watch it on Netflix. Also they have a really nice website with lots of information and recipes.

Cowspiracy_ScreeningPoster3Now I think a lot of people have heard about the documentary ‘Cowspiracy’. Especially after Leonardo DiCaprio, who is executive-producer, mentioned the environment in his speech after finally winning his well deserved Oscar. The documentary is produced and directed by Kip Andersen and Keegan Kuhn and is about the sustainability secret: animal agriculture. So the environmental reason to go vegan. I really like this documentary as it’s easy to follow for everyone. They are very clear and come with a lot of easy explained facts. ‘Cowspiracy was exclusively released on Netflix on September 15, 2015.
