    The terms used to describe sustainability are more complex that I realized. But I am very happy to see the direction that the world is moving in; I hope it is not too late for future generations.
  • Reflection Question
    Basic Needs & Security Know Your Produce
    What surprised you about the two produce lists? How will you use these lists for your grocery shopping? Have you used these lists before?

    This is the first time I have seen the Clean and Dirty lists. I am wondering if there are pesticides on the packaged spinach that states it is ready for consumption.

      Hi Lara, We have been using Beyond meat. I already eat seafood once a week. Beyond is a meat substitute made with Pea protein and maybe soy. My husband and I really like it. We've tried the burgers, the meatballs and the sausage.

      Cool Dana! Just wondering, if you will still be eating seafood? I am thinking of incorporating more seafood and less red meat into my diet.

    I was surprised to learn how much water consumption is needed for nuts and a meat diet.
