Over the years of living a vegan lifestyle, I have seen a bunch of documentaries. These documentaries helped me a lot, not only to stay educated but also to keep following this way of life. These must-watch vegan documentaries will open your mind and heart to living a plant-based lifestyle.

So, here are my picks and brief reviews of the top 3 vegan documentaries that will make you rethink everything you know about food and health.

Top 3 Vegan Documentaries (Available on Netflix)

1. Earthlings

Earthlings was my first (and hardest to watch) vegan documentary. This documentary has graphic footage of violence against animals and it can be very difficult to watch for some people. Through the narrative voice of Joaquin Phoenix (who is vegan since he was three), this 95-minute documentary will show you what is happening behind the walls of the meat industry.

If you are seeking the truth about the meat industry, Earthlings is something you must watch and definitely deserves the number one position in my Top 3 Vegan Documentaries suggestions!

You can watch the documentary also on YouTube:

2. Cowspiracy: The Sustainability Secret

Cowspiracy definitely deserves the place amongst my Top 3 Vegan Documentaries. This documentary will explain the correlation between our meat eating diets and climate change and species extinction. Cowspiracy uses facts and evidence to prove to you that the biggest change we can make to save the planet is cutting animal products in our daily life.


3. Forks Over Knives

Last but not least of our Top 3 Vegan Documentaries is Forks over Knives. This documentary will explain to you the health benefits of the plant-based diet. Forks over Knives features a team of doctors and researchers that will show you how we can fight most of the degenerative diseases that we are facing today by rejecting animal-based and processed foods.


Final Thoughts on My Top 3 Vegan Documentaries

So, these were my Top 3 Vegan Documentaries that I am recommending you to watch. I am not telling you to go vegan (but if someone sways you, I will be glad). My message for everyone is to be aware of what’s going on behind the walls of the meat industry and how our unhealthy habits are ruining our lives, our planet and the entire ecosystem.

*Other than these Top 3 Vegan Documentaries (my personal favorites), there are several other poignant documentaries on the subject:
