Say "Goodbye" to the USDA Eating Model and "Hello" to the Eco-Intelligent Eating Model; a Model for carnivores & vegetarians.
Are you aware of the kind of sustenance that is needed by plants and animals to bring healthful food from our nation's farms to our dining tables? Would you say that you eat a diet that supports you in thriving versus barely surviving? What foods has the media conditioned you to eat that may not be health-giving? Do you eat in a conscious way or an unconscious way? Are you a fan of the USDA Eating Model, -a model that has been criticized by some of the nation's top health experts, for dispensing misleading information and propaganda? In this course module, you will gain an understanding of how industrially produced, factory-farmed, pesticide-drenched foods are harming the health of plants, animals, insects, ecosystems, and people.
