Documentaries I Loved

I am still feeling sadness for the Boston bombing victims. This is not a good thing for any of us. We must not let people with problems get the best of us. Those kinds of people will get caught and will be dealt with. It is certain that he/she/they will make a mistake which will lead to their downfall.

Let me deliver a bit of interesting information to you. If you haven't figured it out by now, I am very interested in cooking good foods without chemical additives. It is a passion in my life which I hope benefits my family.

I watched two really great documentaries about food and the impact it has on our health. The first was called Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead. Sounds morbid, but it was an eye-opener for Joe Cross, whose life was affected by the way he ate. It was very interesting and, in some parts, entertaining the way he gets his findings across to the viewer. He spent 60 days traveling across the U.S. and eating nothing but juices to cleanse his body. He rigged up a juicer in the back of his rental car and interviewed people along the way. I give this one a 5 star out of 5 star rating!

The next documentary was Forks Over Knives. This is a wake-up call from two doctors, Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn and Dr. Colin Cambell. They both grew up on farms and they both became doctors. They have done/are doing research on the impact of whole foods on the human body and how it affects disease states. 5 out of 5 stars, again!

If you never watch documentaries, you must watch these two. It will greatly change your way of thinking. Quite possibly, it will change the way you eat.

Take care.


  1. Hi Michelle,

    What you said in the first paragraph I agree with.

    The Joe Cross story was unknown before me, but I can imagine it as real. With strong will and determination, you can help on yourself and others too.

    Same situation with the two doctors' story. My only remark is if they were grownup on farms they know what the farmers eating habits are. So they can build up their observations on that basis.

    Anyway, if someone assigns their own problem on the way that might be useful to others I always consider that good example.

    As I get a breath I'll google them to read.

    Thanks for the heads up,


    1. Thanks for stopping by. I have been researching foods for myself for about 7 years now. I try to share what I know to whoever is wanting to listen. I experiment on myself and I've found a lot of different things help me. Take care.
