Resource Library For Recommended Reading and Documentaries


If you don’t already know this about me I am a documentary junkie.  I reference them SO much in my posts that I’ve decided to create a page dedicated to all the amazing films I’ve watched and also for books I’ve read.  This page provides easy access to film trailers and info for documentaries with its viewing options, plus links to learn more or purchase books I recommend.



SUSTAINABLE – (2017) Official description “A vital investigation of the economic and environmental instability of America’s food system, from the agricultural issues we face – soil loss, water depletion, climate change, pesticide use – to the community of leaders who are determined to fix it. Sustainable is a film about the land, the people who work it, and what must be done to sustain it for future generations.”

-For me personally, this movie really inspired me to support local organic farmers as MUCH as possible, to better our health and the planet.

Official website with trailer  Available on Netflix and Amazon (Sustainable)

THAT SUGAR FILM – (2015) I really learned a lot from this film!  It’s true how uninformed many of us are on the TRUE effects of sugar on our bodies.  Watch Damon’s experiment and see what is REALLY happening.

FED UP -(2014)  This film’s focus is primarily on sugar and it’s detrimental effect on our kids.  It also has eye opening info on our school lunch programs. I re-watch this one all the time!

THE TRUTH ABOUT VACCINES – (2017)  This is a big one.  It’s a 7 part series on a pretty controversial topic.  I’m a huge fan of being informed on all topics that affect my family’s health and wellness.  Sadly you cannot always get the whole truth from your doctor especially if you don’t know what questions to ask them. Do your research, ask questions, & make educated decisions.  I found this extremely informative and exposed me to so much that I wish I had known a long time ago.
