I swear I didn't used to be all into documentaries--I thought they were for nerds or my dad. Recently, since I got Netflix, I've been obsessed. I wrote about a few that I watched here, but I'm back on a documentary kick and I want to share with y'all what I'm watching!
PUT THIS ON YOUR WATCH LIST NOW. I originally saw this documentary floating around on Netflix and added to "My List" for later. After reading Jessica's, from Wifesticated, post on it, I knew I had to watch it.
The gist of this documentary is two fold: the amount of sugar in processed foods is unbelievable and the major food cooperations: Coke, Pepsi, etc are fighting to keep it that way. Newsflash people: foods that boast LOW CALORIE, LOW FAT, REDUCED FAT, etc are making you fatter not because of the amount of calories or fat--check the amount of sugar. It makes me livid and frustrated. There shouldn't be 34 grams of sugar in a Powerade, a drink that is "supposed" to help you recover after you workout.
Watch it for yourself and I promise you'll look at food differently. Currently, I want to only shop local farmer's markets and the whole foods aisle at the grocery store and throw everything away in my kitchen to start fresh. This is becoming a once a week occurrence, I know, but I'm trying my best to change my relationship with food.
This is actually a series that takes you illusion by illusion into what is really going on in your brain. In a fun, non boring science way, that is. Prepare to have your mind blown on so many different levels. Apparently, color is all in our head. Chew on that one.
Also, not really a documentary, but one of my favorite shows to come home and watch after school, Bill Nye the Science Guy. Is now on Netflix. I repeat BILL NYE y'all.
