7:18 am
in a particular way not using artificial -- artificial ingredients and chemicals and you can have it organic in your backyard. for something to be certified usda organic it has to have a seal from that department or a trusted agency that is allowed to carry the seal. produce raised in that way has to be also not used synthetic fertilizers and has to be not genetically modified and there are certain other criteria, but you can go to your local farmer and they might not have gotten usda organic certification because it's an expensive process but if you can speak to the farmer directly or just have conversations and find out it's raised in that might not have the official seal. >> let's talk about eggs. what are the things we need to know. cage-free, omega-3, what should we know? >> there was a lot of scrutiny

7:20 am
crops we were talking about earlier not genetically modified, that what is the hens are eating. this is another thing you can be a smart shopper, and get to know the producers of the eggs in your supermarket, they have websites, you can track -- zlfrj i want to ask you about the term vegetarian as well. i eat like a vegetarian, there is different levels, flexitarian and all those other levels. >> i was discussing with a colleague it's self opini-polic all vegetarian mean is that you are paying some sort of eye attention to the amount of animal product you're consuming. if somebody is ovolacto vegetarian, they will eat dairy products. you'll catch them chowing down
7:21 am
on a baconator. peskitarian, they eat fish. one of the great things of flexitarianism, people are paying attention, the meatless mondays campaign. they are watching the animal products they are consuming. you can go to veganism, which may or may not be a morel a and ethical health choice but you won't be involving animal products in your life you won't have leather furniture in your hope, won't wear leather clothing, might not eat refined sugar because some of it is used -- used with animal bones. i hope our viewers were notes, kat, that was a wealth of
