“Food Choices is a different kind of movie about food. This film takes a broader look and explores the impact that our food choices have not only on our own health, but also on the health of our planet as well as on the lives of other living species on earth and shows how everything is intrinsically interconnected. This film features interviews with renowned doctors, nutritionists, environmental experts, holistic health practitioners, athletes, musicians, celebrities, authors, bloggers as well as people that shared their amazing stories of how they changed their lives; including those who conquered disease or simply lost weight by implementing a plant based diet in their lives.” – Amazon Advertorial Review
“In short, it was a good overview or introduction for newcomers and people who have not yet learned much about eating plant-based. Though it wasn’t particularly thorough, it covered a lot. I would recommend it to non-vegans and new vegans. And while it could be elementary for veteran vegans, it could give us some new ammo for unwarranted interrogation from non-vegans!” – Crunchy Vegan Gal. “Documentary Review: Food Choices.” Crunchyvegangal.com. 25 Nov 2016
“One of my most favourite films ever! Thank you for creating it.” – Michael Lanfield, Author of The Journey, Amazon
“Cowspiracy: the Sustainability Solution changed our diet and our lives, but Food Choices takes it perhaps a step further and might now be my top single pick for looking at the benefits of a plant based diet, not only for the planet and the factory farmed animals, but also for our health. At least 60% of the film is about the good that this diet does for our health, with many experts interviewed. The rest throughly covers the ethics and ecology and social justice issues that have led so many people to become really passionate about this new (and yet ancient) way of eating that is much more in alignment with our primate origins than other diets, such as the Paleo, that make claims of being our right evolutionary food. John Robbins’ “Healthy at 100” and the “Blue Zone” books are inspiring reads that will convince you further of the amazing health and longevity benefits of eating a diet that is about half whole starches (tubers, grains, beans) and half produce (fruits and veggies) plus a few nuts and seeds, etc.” – Susan Pitcairn, Amazon
“Superb! Everybody in the world should see this. Education of this type is the very best medicine for human health, animal wellbeing, the wellbeing and even survival of the earth, not to mention the starving billion on earth…Thank you!” – P. Noma, Amazon
“Love this! I have shared it with everyone I can. I enjoyed how it provides information in regards to the health benefits,sustainability of the planet and the unnecessary cruelty that’s been done to animals. Whoever says there is no science behind this information needs to do some homework and read the Farmington heart study, the Norfolk study,the China study, Dr Ornish’s study, Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn’s ongoing study, the CHIP program And the list goes on and on for over 70 years!” – Patti, Amazon
