While I was working from home today, I found myself scavenging through Netflix to kill some time. I have stumbled across the movie Hungry For Change quite a few times but never could find it in myself to click play. I've watched countless movies about eating, detoxing, whole foods, etc. and could only imagine that this would be a mirror-image of everything I've seen before.
I decided to finally watch it, and like no surprise, it wasn't that much different than the other food movies I've watched (Fat Sick and Nearly Dead, FoodMatters, Food Inc., etc.). It was still pretty incredible. In fact, it was a big collaboration of the ideas and people from the other movies. I love that they just keep pushing these films out in hopes that one by one, we'll all listen.
For me, it was a great kick in the butt. I needed a friendly reminder to stop eating Cadbury mini eggs and start eating more cucumbers. I actually got up in the middle of the movie to workout and snack on a few carrots. I think they won me over. They highlight the fact that we need whole foods and if we start eating whole foods, everything else will fall into place. Our system now of eating like crap, barely moving, feeling like crap, going to the doctor and being prescribed something is not doing anything for us. It's only pushing us further and further away from our true potential.
If you are into watching movies about food, I recommend it. If you know someone who's been eating too many mini eggs, like myself, kindly suggest it. Watch it with your boyfriend or your mom or anyone else you feel like striking up an interesting conversation with.
Now, I'm going to go hunt for juicers on Amazon...
