You might have heard the phrase 'you are what you eat,' but do we even realize how much and at what level our food impacts us? These eye-opening healthy food documentaries will change your views about your food! 

We get it—documentaries don't seem as good an idea as spending your time, especially your Sunday, binge-watching and binge-eating. But maybe we need to know more about the food we consume. Not in a way that tells you junk food is terrible because that's a known fact; we need to know how food impacts our body. These eye-opening and hard-hitting documentaries not only offer you recipes or things that you can inculcate in your daily routine for better gut health but also inform you about how food doesn't just impact your body, it also affects your mind, skin, society, environment, government, and healthcare systems! So what goes into your mouth should be your decision, but it should be an informed one!
