"The Eco-Intelligent Eating Model™ is the first eating model of its kind to promote green farming and clean eating. Why is this essential in the 21st century? Because we need to clean up the way that we produce food if we're going to restore the health of the environment, and we need to clean up our food choices if we are going to restore our human health!" — Candia Lea Cole 

Course Description

For decades, the USDA Eating Model has told Americans “what” to eat (and in what amounts), but it has failed to tell us that its creators stand behind an industrial food production system that is destroying the environment, and putting people’s health in harm’s way by exposing them to unsafe levels of pesticides, GMO’s, and food additives.


Unfortunately, political lobbyists are handsomely paid to protect conventional food industry standards and their profits! In this course, you will get the inside story about this problem, and be encouraged to adopt healthy, eco-sustainable food choices that protect and nourish your health and sustain the Earth’s health.

Basic Knowledge

No prior knowledge is needed. Just bring a curious mind and a willingness to awaken your innate eco-intelligence. Course is suitable for health enthusiasts, eco-advocates, nutrition and wellness educators, and high school and college students. Over 60 learning and teaching tools are included in this educational toolkit! 

My book "Answering Our Urgent Need to Adopt an Eco-Sustainable Eating Model" provides you with awareness about why the USDA Eating Model has been called "flawed" and "inaccurate" by one of our nation's top nutrition educators.
