period, and do a brief report on your findings. You must upload this report to the appropriate D2L
You must follow the parameters below and write down everything that you eat and drink for 2 full

processed here or that contain non-Montana ingredients do not count (i.e. the deli food at
the Co-op doesn’t count if it contains an item that was grown/raised outside of Montana).
2. You may use items that you previously purchased, as long as they meet all requirements.
3. Tap water is Montana-produced however, coffee is not.
4. Free items such eggs from your neighbor’s chickens, wild game hunted in Montana or items
that you forage (like herbs or wild edible plants) are fair game.
