what values are reflected

Ecuador is a small agricultural country

- A huge national distribution system not required

  • Ecuador’s land for producing food is rich.

Therefore:

  • The food is fresher
  • Preservatives are not as required

- Manure still used more prevalently than fertilizer

  • No seasons in Ecuador

- many fresh fruits available all year round (e.g., berries, papaya)

  • Lots of lush grass available for cattle grazing

- Dairy products both nutritious and delicious

- Can purchase fresh, raw milk by the pail

  • Corn, beans and potatoes are the basics
  • The basic starch is corn and potatoes (very different from the U.S.!)
  • US: 3,666 Calories (Overeating)
  • Ecuador: 2,531 Calories (close to recommended daily intake)
