Whether you’re a fitness junkie, professional couch potato, dedicated vegan, or somewhere in between, you’ll be able to relate to one of these eight Netflix documentaries. Here’s why: each film makes you stop and think about food from intriguing points of view. But not just in a “I’d do unthinkable things to eat this cronut on my Instagram feed right now”-type of mindframe. These documentaries make you see food from a new perspective; to some it’s a lifestyle that encompasses all that they do, to others food has become their own personal demon. Each film is equally fascinating, informative, and worth pausing the current TV show binge you might be in the midst of.
