The Model Health Show

Every day when you choose what to put on your plate, you are given the opportunity to nourish your body. Not only that, but our food choices also have implications on our families, our communities, and the planet. It matters where your food comes from, it matters how it’s made, and it matters how sustainable it is. 

That’s why Darin Olien is on a mission to redefine superfoods. Darin is a New York Times bestselling author, an exotic superfoods hunter, and the co-host of Netflix’s hit series, Down to Earth. He’s here to talk about advancing our health with nutrient dense foods and creating a more sustainable food system.

You’re going to hear Darin’s insights on transparency in our food system, the importance and function of clean water, and what makes a superfood super. I hope this interview will inspire you to make more intentional and conscious food choices, and to vote with your dollar every time you have the opportunity. Enjoy!
