"Are You Ready to Eat Clean and Live Green?"  

Hello friend,

Welcome to my website. My name is Candia Lea Cole, and I'm known within the holistic health community as "The Eco-Intelligent Lifestyle Mentor" and the "Eco-Conscious Cook." 


I create educational tools that support individuals, families, and wellness educators in learning about about (and teaching others about) how to nourish wellness in their bodies and the earth.  


My interest in creating educational tools that support clean, green living, is the result of my life-long experience with environmental illness, including the wonderful lessons I've learned on my self-healing journey about the inextricable link between our personal and planetary health.    

In my view, there's not person or living thing walking the face of the earth that isn't dealing with one form or another of environmental illness. The reason I say this is because toxins of all sorts have been bio-accumulating in the environment and in our bodies for many years. They are actually passed down from one generation to the next!  

If you, or someone that you care about, is suffering with health issues, you owe it to your selves to  explore the role that toxins and nutritional deficiencies may be playing in their development.  


Below, I invite you to learn about the plethora of educational tools that I've created for you, your family, and the community you care about!   


Tabletop TUTORS™ Info-graphics - A stunning collection of 250+ colorful, text-rich infographics that highlight the value and necessity of eating clean and creating a clean, green, non-toxic lifestyle that serves to nourish holistic health and wellness in your body and the earth! 20 category topics make learning easy, fun, and engaging for lay people and professionals alike!

Eco-Bites© Treasure Hunt Game —This fun, hands-on activity tests your family's knowledge about the impact that your everyday food choices have on the health of your body, the earth, and all living things.

Farming & Eating the Eco-Intelligent Way — A 21st century nutrition curriculum that is grounded in an "eco-intelligent" approach to farming and eating. The book introduces the Eco-Intelligent Eating Model and "farm to table" holistic health philosophy. It makes a case for why we need to reassess The USDA Eating Model's dietary recommendations, which are aligned with corporate interests and biases. You'll learn about the legend and lore of traditional whole foods, along with their health benefits and culinary uses in recipes. This book is is featured in my online training, "Become an Eco-Intelligent Eating Advocate."  

3 Whole Foods Cookbooks/Video Cooking Classes- My cookbooks (featured as part of 3 video cooking classes on this site) feature delicious, nature inspired recipes that vegetarians and whole food lovers alike will enjoy preparing and eating! My nut milk beverages are gourmet, smooth-sipping taste sensations. My dairy-free smoothies offer a rainbow of health benefits that serve to detoxify and nourish your body. My gourmet grain dishes are mouthwatering four-season dishes that give you a reason to eat less meat. 

Eco-Enlightened Eating In this booklet, I interview myself about what inspired me to create each of my three cookbooks. The "self-inner-view" offers a delicious way to find out what I am thinking about why I cook, and how I relate to nature, my ingredients, my culinary tools, my body, and my role in the kitchen.
