PlantSmash’s Top 3: Must See Movies For Plant-Based Noobs!

Wondering what a whole food plant-based diet is all about? Heard a little of the fuss perhaps, but would like to know more?! Well, we here at PlantSmash have chosen the following documentaries as our Top 3 must-see’s for those of you who are looking to get the lowdown…ASAP!


 The “What”

Ok, kicking it all off is PlantPure Nation, which tells the story of Dr. T. Colin Campbell, his son Nelson, and Kentucky State Representative Tom Riner’s mission to spread the message about the incredible health benefits of a whole food plant-based diet.

Documenting the barriers they experience in first trying to get the word out via legislative means, the death of their proposed bill in the Committee prompts their initiation of a “bottom-up” movement in order to generate much-needed awareness amongst the general public. In doing so, this feature provides an excellent window into what this WFPB phenomenon is actually all about!

Running Time: 1h 35min
Year: 2015




A Little Tease….



The “Why”

Although PlantPure provides plenty of health-based reasons to pursue a WFPB diet, Cowspiracy gives us even more to chew on with its jaw-dropping exposé of the devastating effects of agribusiness on the planet.

With unflinching filmmaker, Kip Andersen, providing unprecedented insight into the fact that large-scale factory farming is the leading cause of global warming, deforestation, water depletion, ocean “dead zones,” and species extinction – to name just a few of its resulting environmental ills – you’re given every why you’ll ever need to begin embracing a plant-based eating pattern.

The “How”

So, you have your what and why in the bag, and now you’re chomping at the bit to get going! Well, being the ultimate PB guide, Forks Overs Knives really puts the how into making this happen.

Detailing the scientific minutiae behind a WFPB diet, and why it works so well in the control and/or reversal of chronic disease, viewers are not only shown what to eliminate from their plates, but also, more importantly, what they should be chowing down on instead i.e. plants, plants, and even more plants! Again, featuring powerhouses T. Colin Campbell and Caldwell Esselstyn, this film is NOT to be missed. So grab that popcorn – and guaranteed – come closing credits, you’ll be a PB pro! Enjoy!

Running Time: 1h 30min
