Jamie Olivers Food Revolution
I am so inspired as I have just finished the second season of Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution. This show is so accessible and easy to get behind- Jamie Oliver’s goal is to create a food revolution in America. Jaime takes us into atrocious public school kitchens, fast food restaurants, and the homes of families who have terrible diets then inspires these institutions and people to make better choices using FRESH and starting with RAW ingredients. I am so grateful that someone like Jamie has finally come along to start the ball rolling in a better direction for the health of america. If you are interested in watching his efforts from the begining here is a snippet of season 1:
Simply Raw: Reversing Diabetes in 30 days.
This movie is touching. Simply Raw shows 6 diabetic people who are on medication that think that they have no hope left for their health reverse their diabetes. How do they do it? They switch from eating the standard American diet to eating a raw whole foods diet for 30 days. While watching this film I experienced shock, humor, sadness, and hope. I highly recommend this film! View the trailer below:
The Green Beautiful
Ok, so admittedly this film has less to do with food and more to do with inspiration. The Green Beautiful is a french film about people from another planet who have learned to live completely in harmony with their natural eco-systems. They have tapped into super-conscious- advanced technologies such as inter space travel, telepathy, and the ability to make unconscious beings conscious. In this sweetly bizarre and typically french film the main character decides to come to our planet, Earth, to help speed along our social and environmental revolution. Hope you enjoy this film as much as I do:
Have you ever heard of Planet Earth? It is an amazing show on the BBC/Discovery channel that covers beautiful natural phenomena in each bio- region of the world. Human Planet is much like planet each except it covers a subject much closer to home: Humans. This show is amazing!! It shows many tribal people, as well as a few city people, through out their day-surviving against all odds in some of the most hospitable environments. Below is a clip of a tribes man climbing a 130+ foot tree in the rain forest to collect a valuable raw food source: honey. Enjoy!
There are so many more wonderful films and tv shows these days that put us in touch with knowledge that we’ve never been able to see in this way before. I will post more at a later date, until then I hope you enjoy these!
