Watch What You Eat - Literally!

Welcome to my blog!

I wanted to bring two important food related films to your attention.

Fast Food Nation The first film, Fast Food Nation, is based on the book of the same name, but instead of making it a straight documentary (as the book is) the movie is a fictionalized journey of a fast food manager finding out where the food he serves originates. While I didn't read the book, I did find the movie compelling. I found the stories within the main story interesting and never "preachy" except for one small segment with college students. Overall, this film really hits you and makes you want to re-evaluate what you eat and where it comes from. Strongly recommended.

Food, Inc. The second feature, Food, Inc., is a straight up documentary on where our food comes from. It's a rather disturbing documentary. Its basic emphasis is on where our meat comes from and how the corn industry has manipulated our food chain for the worse. It's a real eye-opener and is also strongly recommended viewing.

These two movies will really hit you in the gut and hopefully inspire you to change your food habits for the better (more veggies, less meat, more natural foods, less processed foods).

Have you seen either or both of these films? How did it affect you? Did they change your eating habits? Share any thoughts below!
