From meat to vegetables, from delicious meals to haunting creations (cricket bread anyone?), there is something for everyone on our list of the best food documentaries on Hulu.
I think the majority of us have become aware that the food we are eating doesn’t have the quality that it should. In order to keep up with demand, the food industry is cutting corners every step of the way. This is why there are so many food documentaries focusing on food production and food quality rather than, let’s say, the art of preparing food. This is the issue that affects us all, and we need someone to show us what kind of food finds its way onto our plates, and how it’s being made. The only way we can be sure about our food is if we grow it ourselves, but unfortunately, very few of us have the opportunity to do so. The best alternative is to try and find organic food sources. Don’t buy your vegetables and fruits in the supermarket, since they probably traveled thousands of miles to their destination while being treated with various additives. Visit your local marketplace and get fresh ingredients for your meals.
Another focus of food-related documentaries is unhealthy food habits. Although we can’t affect food production, we can choose what we eat and try to minimize the damage. Food has great importance on our overall health. While some food habits can make you healthier, others can have a disastrous effect on your health. The differences between having a balanced diet and eating fast food for breakfast, lunch, and dinner are startling.
