A Refreshingly Different Documentary on Veganism
14 December 2016 | by withabuttonnoseSee all my reviews

Food Choices is a medium length documentary on the plant based diet in today's 21st century world. This documentary was refreshing in many different ways. The film was very credible. All the information in this documentary was cited on the screen. The many different interviews throughout the film were with credible sources in many different industries. I appreciated how athletes were included in this documentary. Many men and athletes use the excuse that a vegan diet would not be beneficial to them, so I feel that is film did a great job covering all the bases. This film would benefit many different people including the average Joe, athletes, parents, and young adults. There are many different perspectives given throughout. The director is a parent and talks about a plant based diet for children. If you have seen a lot of other documentaries about plant based diets, you will appreciate how Food Choices covers some of the most common excuses people use as to why they cannot go plant based. This film also has great use of music and sound effects throughout. I appreciated the use of visual graphics with charts and diagrams to visual see what point is being made. Another credible addition to the film was that they added numerous different scientific research papers to support the arguments being made. If you have seen most of the other plant based diet documentaries, I would still highly encourage you to watch Food Choices as it covers different topics not yet argued by other directors.
