haha, I have seen Fast Food nation... and that, combined with food inc., (which I thought would certainly turn me vegan but my love of all things beef and chicken won out), did do one good thing for me... I only buy my meat off local farmers now... it's pricey and I am poor, so I only get to eat meat a couple of times a week, but it's damn good and makes me feel good about it emoticon :)

eat food. not too much. mostly plants.

TED.com is one of the most interesting places to be on the internet, i swear...

Oh, and how could i forget - Eric Schlosser's Fast Food Nation. It's a book! It's a video! It's... gonna turn you off ground beef for life... heh.

Another vote for Hungry for Change. I also liked Food Inc., although it's less about actual nutrition and more about the state of the food industry, but still very interesting.

There's a whole series of Ted Talks videos about food related subjects, the series is called "TEDTalks: Chew On This", and there's 14 episodes. Jamie Oliver's is one of them. I watched them on Netflix on the computer.... I think I'll watch them again too.

If you're interested in checking out the food I've made and liked, come visit me on Pinterest, and feel free to follow me:

awesome guys, thanks!! We don't get a lot of ads in Canada for docs, so hard to find them unless pointed in the right direction... I am even cool with the agendas of all of them cause I am finally in a place where I simply just listen, and not act on things they say (like a couple of years ago, if I saw that sick and nearly dead flick, I would be on a juice fast lol). Now though, I still plan on finding a juicer, but only to replace boxed juices for my son, and to get some more greens in me :)

Anything by Michael Pollan, Food Inc. is just one of his - try "Food Rules for Healthy People and Planet," "A Plant's-Eye View" (quite hilarious) or "Fast Food World." (talks all available on Youtube and or TED). He also has a talk discussing his book, "The Omnivore's Dilemna" (great book btw)... and lots of others.

Either of these talks by Vandana Shiva (my hero, so she gets a link :) ) www.uctv.tv/speakers/Vandana-Shiva-96361a>

Actually, a good place to start is to go to Ted.com and search "Food" - you will find so much interesting stuff!

Weight of the Nation is good. It's a four-part tv doc. I've also seen Food Matters and Forks over Knives.

Have you seen Hungry for Change? I saw that one last week. It's inspired me to eat more whole foods. :) My only criticism is that at the end it devolves into a detox and juicing infomercial, but the rest of it's cool, and really makes you think.

My new fave thing to do is load up documentaries on my samsung and watch them while I walk on the treadmill at the gym... I love food-based ones, because they totally motivate me to keep going on this journey... what are your favorites? I have seen the big ones over the years- food inc, super size me, etc... just watched fat, sick and nearly dead... I need more great foodie docs!
