I think that even in the USA you can eat healthy at farms. You don't have to go abroad. I live in Poland and it's not that wonderful here as she describe. She just said what's obvious - eat fruit and veges.

Makes sense - and after even a very short time away from junk or unhealthy food, you very soon lose the taste for it.
Thank you for sharing this.

One other very good set of videos, at least for nutrition, is Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead, as well as Food Matters. I am trying to find a locally made and organic store to buy my food at now. i found one that has some items we use regularly, but not everything. We're still working on that.
