This comprehensive and accessible video explains the differences between large-scale conventional agriculture vs. small-scale organic agriculture, helping dispel the myth that industrial agriculture is necessary to feed the world. Understanding where our food comes from and how the agricultural industry works (or doesn’t work) allows us to make healthier, more environmentally-friendly choices as consumers each day. We can choose to support a more equitable and sustainable food system by purchasing local, organic or small-scale produced food as well as adopting a plant-based diet, low in animal products-which have the highest eco-footprint. We can also be mindful of buying direct or fair trade speciality items like coffee, tea, and dark chocolate that are grown in accordance with sustainable practices. Considering these factors is part of a holistically-healthy diet and life!
Martin Morales is a Peruvian/British chef who has introduced the UK/Western world to Peruvian cuisine through his restaurant & cookbook named Ceviche. This beautiful, fresh and simple salad is not only delicious but also highly nutritious! packed with plant-based protein from the butterbeans (aka lima beans) & quinoa, healthy monounsaturated fat from the avocado, vitamins, minerals and other antioxidants from the tomato, coriander, red onion and chili pepper.

This distinctly flavoured sweet & sour fruit is bursting with iron, vitamin C, Vitamin A, B Vitamins. Studies have also found that Physalis contains strong anti-inflammatory properties and may help prevent diabetes and hypertension.
This is the second video in our 2-part series of cooking videos my brother Dave and I collaborated on this summer. I am grateful for Dave’s hard work and positive energy on this project, it was a blast shooting the videos.
“The main thing that I’ve learned from the Kenyans is probably their mental outlook to running. Although they’re professional athletes, they still have a very relaxed way outlook to it. If they have a bad race,they just forget it, they’ll say ‘i’ll win next time’. They just have this eternal optimism that they will always succeed“. -Tom Payn, elite athlete and run-fast athlete manager
