Foods best for the health of our people are also best for the health of our planet. True or false? Why does it matter? And why should food-lovers especially take notice? Based on the book, Cool Cuisine – Taking the Bite Out of Global Warming, and a partnership between Harvard University and the Culinary Institute of America, Chef and author Laura Stec looks at how the four most common dietary habits which negatively affect human health (being overweight and eating too much sodium, simple carbohydrates, and red meat) are also ruining the health of our environment. She addresses how agricultural practices can enhance or destroy the taste and nutrient-quality of food, and what motivates eaters (especially youth) to make healthy changes to their diet.
