Ten Nutrition Documentaries and Lectures to Watch

When it comes to the food we eat and how it’s made, knowledge is power. The more we understand about our food, the more we can make good decisions on what we eat. One way we love to stay current with the latest ideas, opinions and research of nutrition experts, is by watching lectures (through TED talks or YouTube) and by watching documentaries. Although some of these opinions are not reflective of our own, they do provide insight into different sides of the nutrition story.

    Great list! I’m a sucker for food documentaries. Even though I don’t always agree with them, I find them fascinating. They make you think!

    i think it’s great to see all different perspectives, but we must choose our own in the end, yes? what we believe in and find works for us. Hard to do at times

      ahh you bring up a good point … there’s also the problem of information overload sometimes when consuming this kind of content
