Monday Brews with Precious: Pt. 4
Hi, welcome to part 4 of a new segment in Precious the Foodie Podcast! Monday Brews with Precious is a brief morning segment designed to bring a positive start to your week. Brew your favorite morning beverage whether that's tea or coffee and get your groove on. In this segment, I'll cover food highlights and happenings around the world. Current events are so crucial to understanding the larger role of food's impact on our lives. It's a resource, tradition, and a source of joy.  Leave Monday blues behind and tune into Monday Brews with Precious. ***UPDATE TO THIS SHOW*** After further research and talking with other experts and professionals in the wine industry: I retract my statements regarding "clean wine". After being informed more about how the wine process works I understand now that companies like Good Clean Wine is really more of a gaslit company meant to showcase really great marketing towards the people who want to live a "clean" eating lifestyle. But, also know nothing about wine. Myself included. I apologize, if this show led anyone on to believe in their "hangover" cures and discredited any other wineries in the process. But, I think it was a great discussion to have regarding label policing because each day it gets a little bit more challenging to navigate the actual truth when it comes to the food we eat.  Also, in reference to the statement I made about wine experts. The study actually took place in 2001 by Frederic Brochet at the University of Bordeaux where he invited 57 wine experts to perform in that experiment. No discredit to sommeliers, that's an incredibly challenging expertise. Just a candid expression in regards to that experiment.   I will work to to better, and am always willing to change my mind based on new information or if I've misspoken. Thank you for understanding!  There will be a follow up episode to tell the other side of the story from the perspective of the wineries and sommeliers.  Below is the Good Clean Wine website and A Forbes article to explore for yourself.  If you enjoyed the show please leave a review on Apple Podcasts, Stitcher, or wherever you listen to your podcasts!  That would really help to support the creation of the show.

This week we're camping out in Bali, Indonesia to talk with my special guest Cece Heart. Her name is so fitting with the essence and joy she brought to this week's show.

How we can pivot and change our entire lives with our diet. How we can overcome sicknesses and improve our quality of life and how we feel. Food has immense power because it has everything to do with the role of how every single cell functions in our body. But, if it's so important why haven't we been taught about nutrition? Well it's complicated.. tune in.  If you enjoyed the show, please don't forget to Subscribe and Leave a Review Below. That really helps to support the creation of these shows. Thank you!
