Step 1: Food Consciousness

Step 1: Food Consciousness

Though we engage with it three times a day—and maybe more if you include morning lattes and afternoon snacks—food isn’t always a priority. We need it for survival, yet eating is often a mindless activity. How does one go about becoming food conscious? One hint: It starts by asking questions.


Omnivore, vegetarian or vegan. Learn more about each food lifestyle and how to integrate these choices into your life.


Only a small percentage of the corn we grow is eaten at the dinner table every night. Find out how the rest of it is used.


Decisions we make every day can have drastic effects on our overall health. If the changes seem overwhelming, start here. Integrating small changes is the best place to start.
