netflix documentaries

i cannot count the amount of people talking about netflix documentaries on my two hands. from my friends to my professors, i feel like everyone is watching them. as curious as i am, i’ll admit that i’m actually a little bit afraid. the food ones peak my interest the most but i’m so afraid to watch them because i like meat. regardless, i’ve been more and more apt to cozying up on my couch on friday and saturday nights because it is just so cold outside and leaving my leggings, candles, and blankets is just way too much effort. i’m excited to dive in this weekend, here are the top five that i’m most excited to watch!

i’m secretly glad that food, inc. is no longer available for streaming because if it was i know that i would be watching that first and swearing off meat for the next few weeks. if you have any suggestions for documentaries you love and would not miss, let me know in the comments! i am always up for suggestions!
