Last weekend we watched the latest nutrition-related documentary on Netflix called What the Health. By now, you’ve probably seen or heard of it—it’s all over the place.
I’ll share my thoughts on the film, but first, a little background.
I watched Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead, Forks Over Knives, Food, Inc. and numerous other documentaries, and I was inspired to change my way of eating and consuming—because, even now, as an unapologetic omnivore, I believe that a plant-based diet is incredibly healthy and that eating less meat is crucial to combatting some of the detrimental environmental effects that factory farming and monoculture have wreaked on our planet.
And, yet, I’m so glad this film didn’t come out years ago, when I was more naïve and easily-swayed.
