Michael Pollan takes on a no BS, cut and dry approach to a problem that plauges us – the obesity epidiemic. I was hooked from the very beginning, and must say that it’s brilliantly refreshing. What is the simple solution to eating healthy? Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.

In this documentary, Michael calls out the big food corporations who not only confuse us with misleading labels but actively villainize things like fat, gluten, and sugar (all while they make a buck, Cha-ching!).  No wonder so much confusion exists about what we should and shouldn’t eat when boxes are literally screaming “FAT FREE”, “GLUTEN FREE”, “LOW FAT”, “SUGAR FREE” just begging to be picked.

Not only does he cut through all the corporation nonsense, throughout the whole movie Michael gives us several tips to guide us on this journey to healthy food and healthy eating, and believe it or not this is just a few of them! P.S The last one is definitely my personal favorite! 

So if you’re a foodie like me and ready to curl up with a good, BS free documentary then look no further! Climb into your fuzzy pajamas, pop some popcorn or grab some No Bake. No Fuss. Energy Bites, and snuggle up to your favorite blanket.

Here’s a little teaser, and the best part? It’s on Netflix right now!

Hope you enjoy the movie as much as I did, and remember: Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.
