ECO-INTELLIGENT EATING ADVOCATE & MENTOR TRAINING
FARM, COOK, & EAT THE ECO-INTELLIGENT WAY!
(A self-guided, mentor-supported training with educator's toolkit, featuring Eating Model info-graphics, illustrated learning modules, podcasts, cooking videos, and more!)
"Food is Life, and life is precious. When we unearth the powerful life-sustaining energy within our food, we can live healthier, happier, more eco-sustainable lives. But our industrial food system threatens our ecological well-being! It has been corrupted by mega food corporations and paid food lobbyists. To complicate matters, the USDA Eating Model is not what it's cracked up to be!" — Candia Lea Cole
Are you aware that there is a demand for a NEW kind of nutrition and health mentor? This new kind of mentor is one who is conscious of the idea that the way that food is produced, is just as important as what a person eats. This new kind of mentor is one who conscious of the idea that food is meant to nourish our connection to not only the natural world, but to our bodies, minds, emotions, and spirits as a whole. Unfortunately, the The USDA Eating Model does not promote this vital message!
The USDA Eating Model Is Flawed!
The USDA Eating Model reflects the economic interests of the meat, dairy, sugar, and fat producing industries, and its eating guidelines have been found to be misleading and flawed by prominent health researchers. To complicate matters, it doesn't make a distinction between (toxic) industrially produced food and (cleaner) sustainably produced food.
Are you aware, that:
Industrial farming methods are contributing to human sickness, because they contain poisonous pesticides, genetically modified organisms, antibiotics, and hormones.
Industrial farming methods are contributing to deforestation, species extinction, topsoil erosion, water pollution, colony collapse disorder, and climate change.
Attempts to revise the USDA Dietary Gudelines have been met with resistance by those who have an economic stake in the industrial food system.
It’s Time for a Nutrition Curriculum that Speaks to Our Ecological Needs!
When it comes to learning about (and teaching about) nutrition, it’s time to come out of the "dark ages!" That's why I have created a nutrition curriculum that speaks to the ecological health crisis we are facing in the 21st century.
My curriculum training uses The USDA Eating Model (featuring 6 food groups) to address the ecological health problems that people, plants, animals, and all living things are experiencing due to our reliance on a toxic industrial food production system.
My curriculum training uses The Eco-Intelligent Eating Model™ (featuring 12 food groups) to address the necessity of returning to an organic farming system that works with nature to restore our ecological well-being and encourages conscious eating and cooking habits.
My Eco-Intelligent Eating Advocate Training© is for nutrition educators, health care providers, parents raising "green teens", college students pursuing health and environmental studies, and everyday people who have a burning desire to be healthy and make a difference in the world using an eco-intelligent approach to eating! Are you ready to earn your certification?!
"Candia's curriculum training is brilliant, and long overdue! It introduces us to a holistic, eco-integrated approach to eating, using natural, whole, delicious foods that help to protect and nourish the health of our bodies, minds, and souls, as well as the health of animals, plants, ecosystems, and the planet as a whole! Anyone involved in education will want to work with this cutting edge resource!" — Bill Rezmerski, CEO, Human Energy Solutions
"I have a vested interest in nutrition education that supports parents and their children to adopt new and conscious food and lifestyle behaviors, behaviors that are purposeful, preventive and proactive. Candia's Eco Intelligent Eating curriculum offers to support my aims in this process because it offers a broad, connected vision of healthful eating that prevents harm to nature and gives people a purposeful way to eat. Thank you, Candia, for putting this model out there for all of us! It is a welcome alternative to the USDA Food and eating Model - a stodgy, outdated eating model that fails (due to political influences) to teach us the link between our personal and planetary health." — Deb Tucker, Founder and CEO, What’s In Your Lunchbox
"The incidences of chronic illness in children have skyrocketed. In fact, at least 54% of children in the U.S. now have chronic medical problems. As a society, we need to initiate a food revolution and re-educate ourselves as to the most healthful approaches to nutrition. Candia Lea Cole offers this very education through her training. Marrying traditional ways of eating with cutting-edge nutrition science, and an ecologically-sound approach to farming and eating offers a model that, if implemented, could save the health of the next generation!" — Beth Lambert, Executive Director, Epidemic Answers; Author: A Compromised Generation: The Epidemic of Chronic Illness in America's Children
