Maximize the Potential of Every Bite
Today’s episode dives into how to prepare your food so you can get the most nutrition out of every bite. How we prepare our food has a direct effect on how nutritious or harmful it can be to our health. If we are going to go out of our way to get the best quality food, then shouldn’t also stand to reason that we should cook it in such a way as to preserve the nutritious value?

Can Eating Plants Do More Harm Than Good?
Today’s episode dives into how eating plants can cause inflammation in the body. “WHAT?!” You’re probably thinking. “I thought I was supposed to eat plants!” The short answer is yes, eat plants. But the more in depth answer is maybe there are some plants that are contributing to the inflammation in your body. Today I give you the run down on lectins, plant defense systems. Lectins are thought to have evolved as a natural defense in plants, essentially as a toxin that deters animals from eating the plants. In “The Plant Paradox”, by Dr. Steven Gundry, MD, the mechanism by which plants defend themselves from predators (us/humans) is related to (and possibly the cause of) how it affects our GI system and our ability to absorb and process nutrients. It’s an interesting hypothesis and one that as the title refers to is a paradox to what we’ve been told about how and what to eat.  Tune in to today’s episode to find out if some plants could be the source of your digestive troubles, fatigue and many other symptoms.
