6: Plant-Based Nutrition with Dr. Duncan
Today Dr. Duncan from the College of Public Health joins us to talk about the course he teaches to college students and the overall theme of the benefits of plant-based nutrition as part of your daily patterns!  There is great information in this episode and got us all thinking about living a balanced life!  " You're all born with genes that you didn't have any choice about getting, but you got them. But you do have a choice about what happens to them. You can turn them on or you can prevent them from getting turned on and so on, this course we're going to talk about two things that I think are very essential in turning on or upping the risk of these conditions..... Chronic stress and what you put in your mouth..."- Dr. Duncan Links and Resources Mentioned in the Episode:  The China Study - by T. Colin Campbell & Thomas M.

5: Sports Nutrition with Phil Lewis
Phil Lewis joins us to talk about his role in the Arizona Athletics department, his journey to becoming a sports dietitian and ways student athletes and active folks in general can keep nourishing simple!

And when I say well balanced, I always tell our athletes have all four, your carbohydrates, protein, fruit, vegetable and some fluids."- Phil Lewis, MS, RD, CSSD, CSCS Links mentioned in the show: Sports Nutrition Resources What is NSF?

Bridgette & Michaela from the Campus Pantry join us to talk about the challenges college students face when it comes to having enough to eat.  We might not think we need the help with obtaining food, but The Campus Pantry is a great program here for students, and is a helpful resource on campus.  "Quality food is important to us because making sure that students have quality food and meals that are both sustainable and nutritiously rich are important to helping students remain healthy, be successful in courses and ultimate have the support to persist until graduation.
