You’ve probably seen my favourite restaurants in Tokyo (if you haven’t, please do it before you go to that amazing city). Now it’s time to tell you which ones I’m still dreaming about in Kyoto! You can ready my extended review for each one of them just by clicking their titles. Let’s start?
Super cool ramen experience where you are served in an individual booth. But I’m not saying it is worth a visit only because of the experience though, their ramen is indeed yum and totally worth a try.
This is not truly a restaurant, but I strongly recommend you to visit this little cafe. They serve many dairy free desserts made of soy milk. Please, try their cheesecake for me (bonus points if you try it multiple times).
The whole recipe has 70g of net carbs, 183g of fat, and 51g of protein. But of course, you’re not going to eat 500g of granola, right? Tip: skip using dates and replace honey with stevia to reduce the number of carbs (although I prefer more natural sweeteners).
In 4 outstanding episodes, Michael Pollan takes us back to the origins of food.
Exploring the four natural elements (fire, water, air, and earth), Michael Pollan shows how cooking transforms food and shapes our lives. It’s magical how this series documentary presents the evolution of what food means to us in different cultures and how it has the power to connect us. It also highlights that we need to go back to the kitchen, connect with the ingredients and don’t let the cooking techniques and our cultural traditions to be taken by the industry. Let’s cook, people!
2. That sugar film – Damon Gameau
The Australian actor Damon Gameau, who had been living eating a healthy diet and consuming only real food (which includes no refined sugar), does an experiment to document the effects of a high sugar diet on a healthy body. So, for this experiment, he starts eating only low fat food. That’s right, those ones that most of the population believes as “healthy” – very easy to find on supermarket shelves, but not necessarily good in the long run.
3. The Diet Myth – Tim Spector
In the documentary The Diet Myth, Prof Spector challenges everything we know about weight loss by looking at the link between diet, microbes, and weight. According to his researches, many people view bacteria as an enemy without realising that some are actually crucial for a healthy gut and immune system. So, after watching this documentary, please go to the kitchen and make awesome real food to feed all the good bacterias in your gut. 😀
4. Food Matters
You are what you eat. With this words, Food Matters documentary opened my mind in a way that changed my diet and lifestyle since then. Nowadays we have medications for everything, but think for a second: what if instead of a medicine you could have a healthy diet, based on real food. Do you think your body would behave the same? More, do you believe your body would need all this medications out there? Food Matters brings out the best of this forgotten knowledge we had on food and how our views on illness and wellness have changed over the centuries.
5. Way beyond weight (Muito além do peso)
Way Beyond Weight is a free Brazilian documentary that you can watch in the video above (with English subtitles). The documentary seeks to answer why levels of childhood obesity are outstandingly high, especially in Brazil. Every responsible parent out there should feel obligated to watch this documentary and understand what are the consequences of an unhealthy and unbalanced diet to their children.
