Forks Over Knives

This is a food documentary. It takes a look into what may very well be the future of humankind – vegetarianism, or veganism. The reality is that two of every three people are overweight. There is an increasing number of people on prescription drugs for diseases like diabetes, heart disease, and high blood pressure.

There’s also a rise in the number of people requiring surgeries related to obesity in some way. These concerns are what drove the Forks Over Knives team to invite people to monitor the switch from animal-based diets to plant-based diets. Even if you’re completely against the idea, it’s a worthwhile watch.

Being in quarantine has probably left you cooking a lot more, and some people love it, while others don’t. Watching some of these shows helps you look at food differently, and helps you have a newfound appreciation for food. So if you’re tired of the movies, sitcoms, and reality TV shows, give these foodie-shows a go and see how you like them. With all those delicacies out there on the show, you never know, you could find a new hobby. So, start watching these shows and kickstart your journey as the Masterchef of your home!
