We rely on medications to solve our health issues now, and while medications are important in some cases for healing purposes, moving to eating a clean, nutritious diet can proactively help us enjoy longer lives and rely less on medication and more on prevention via food.

Chef James Smith believes the need for us to get back to our roots and try to be more conscious of local and sustainable ways to feed our families is extremely important. Clean eating is not a fad or buzz phrase any more. This is a real need, and just one reason the Clean Eating Academy was founded.

Chef James's passion to teach students about an ingredient, where it comes from and how it’s grown creates a real connection to food.

Listen as Chef James joins host Lisa Davis to discuss the importance of clean eating today, as well as information about the Academy.
