Inspiration for plant-based eating and healing

Inspiring Documentaries for Plant-Based Living

We love documentaries–especially health and food documentaries. We are so glad that most video streaming services offer a feast of these options for our hearts and minds. 

We especially love that most local libraries provide access to these resources for free! You can use your library card to request the material through your library’s online catalog. Some libraries even offer free streaming services like Hoopla or Kanopy so you can watch via online streaming.

Here are some of our favorite plant-based food documentaries:

We want to start by showing you the trailer for a film that is scheduled to be released soon. It focuses on a topic that simply does not get enough attention: Food injustice/health inequities among people of color. It’s called They’re Trying To Kill Us. Check out the trailer.

We were excited to be able to see The Game Changers during it’s opening weekend at a local theater. It is so very inspiring–if you haven’t seen it yet, stop what you’re doing and go check it out on Netflix.

Food Inc. is one of the first food documentaries we watched. We highly recommend it to anyone who desires to learn more about food and how it has evolved.

Forks Over Knives gives an inspiring look at how food can be used to gain better health and combat chronic diseases.

Fed Up takes a look at the obesity epidemic in American and examines the food industry’s role in it. This is an old school favorite!

Soul Food Junkies provides some deep food for thought from the historical perspective of African American culture. We loved it so much we bought our own copy!

What the Health has been inspiring people to change how they think about food, health and disease. It has moved so many people into action! Check it out and share your thoughts with us.
