10 Awesome Food Films on Netflix

Netflix Food Films

When you think about Netflix, you probably imagine catching up on TV series you didn’t watch new or watching movies, but did you know that Netflix has lots of great food films in their library, too?

Vegging out in front of the TV might not be your go-to for entertainment, and what I love about a food film is that it’s a chance to kick back, relax, and learn something all at the same time! I searched through the Netflix library and found some awesome food films that are available to watch right now! Check it:

  1. Forks Over Knives – food scientists explore how a plant-based diet can help prevent and even fight disease
  2. Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead – a first-person look at food’s healing powers
  3. Vegucated – What happens when a group of meat- and cheese-loving people eat vegan for six weeks?
  4. Food Matters – a look at the Standard American Diet and how we can improve what we eat and our health
  5. King Corn – two friends travel America’s “corn belt” to learn about how corn is affecting our diets and our health
  6. The Engine 2 Kitchen Rescue – Rip Esselstyn helps two families make over their diets and their health
  7. Food Fight – a profile of food superstar Alice Waters as she tries to promote healthy, sustainable food
  8. Food Beware – the story of one French town where the mayor mandated an all-organic school lunch program
  9. Fed Up! – this film takes a hard look at the GMOs and factory farming in our food system and how we can make our food production more sustainable
  10. Farmageddon – the heart-wrenching story of sustainable farms that were forcefully shut down

Do you have any favorite food films, on Netflix or otherwise? I was bummed to find that Supersize Me isn’t available for streaming right now. It’s one of my favorites!

    The Gerson Miracle movie shows how food can build your body’s defenses up to eliminate cancer, TB and other diseases. All the proof you need is here. It exposes how the cancer industry has pushed the Gerson Therapy out of the mainstream. It now has to operate in Mexico. Charlotte Gerson is a saint and this movie is a must watch.

    One of my favorites is Food, Inc. (don’t know if it’s on Netflix or not). Each time I watch it, I learn something new about what’s wrong with our current food system and how people are trying to change it. Love the list. Thanks Becky!

      I just checked and it’s not right now, unfortunately. I should rent it from Amazon! Shameful, I know, but I still haven’t seen Food Inc!

  3. I just watched Hungry for Change and really liked it. It featured Mike from Natural News and a bunch of other guys I’d never seen before- but they know their STUFF! Super informative, showing viewers that our whole society is plagued by stress, lack of sleep, and missing the basic nutrition that we need to nurture our bodies. Super good!
