One of my New Year’s Resolutions for 2015 was to watch at least one documentary every month. I wrote them all down in the back of my planner, and thought it would be cool to share them all with you, and rate each one on a scale from 1-10.
I’m hoping to do the same in 2016, it’s a great way to spend a little time each month educating yourself on different topics and information that’s out there.

If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you’ve probably heard me talk about Dr. T. Colin Campbell and/or the documentary Forks Over Knives (FOK). The research that Dr. Campbell has done, as well as the information shown in the documentary FOK is mind blowing, and has changed my life in many different ways.
Today, I wanted to do a thorough review on the documentary and hopefully convince you to check it out for yourself! Forks Over Knives is essentially a documentary that is centered around the research done on the connection between animal protein and cancer growth. Dr. Campbell began this research during The China Study. Lots of research has been done over the years on this topic, and FOK puts it all into a very easy to follow documentary. Along with presenting the research in easy to understand words, pictures, and interviews the documentary follows several individuals who are suffering with chronic diseases.

For breakfast, guess what I had…? You probably guessed right, two slices of Ezekiel bread with peanut butter and jelly with a side of fruit (two peaches, and a banana). For my coffee, I added in some almond milk and a few drops of liquid stevia. I am usually a black coffee drinker, but lately I’ve been enjoying adding a little almond milk into my coffee.
An hour or two after breakfast, I went to a few thrift stores around town. I absolutely love to go thrifting on a Saturday afternoon, because you never know what you’ll find! Also, who can beat clothes for less than a dollar?!

Most of these can be found on Netflix, or streamed online so go check them out!
Forks Over Knives
Forks Over Knives is by far my favorite food-related documentary, it basically changed my life. This documentary is based off The China Study, which is one of the most comprehensive nutrition-related studies that has ever been doneIt was initiated by Dr. Colin Campbell which is one of my favorite doctors/researchers. All of his work is so powerful and in-depth, and I highly respect everything he does. Forks Over Knives not only shows how a plant-based diet is the most beneficial diet, but it proves how powerful eating plant-based is. This documentary is very easy to understand, and it shows both the science part, as well as the impact the study had on individuals.
