Why You Should Listen

This is one of the longest interviews I’ve conducted and I promise you this is a conversation about food, health and nutrition unlike any you have heard before. Whether you are a food manufacturer or trying to learn more about health and nutrition, there’s a lot you can take away from it.

Here’s what we cover in the conversation:

  • We talk about how all grains are not created equal and how to choose the healthiest.
  • Whether high carb foods are bad for you and when you try low carb you end up unintentionally eating more meat and fewer plants.
  • We also talk about sugar, fat and salt and the best sources for each.
  • Brenda has some really interesting things to say about why sugar should be completely avoided and how to sweeten foods the healthy way.
  • We also get into protein and Brenda has some surprising things to say about soy that most people may not know.
  • Things to keep in mind when using isolate proteins and what scientific research has revealed about populations that consume plant-based meats.
  • Lastly, we cover additives, preservatives, emulsifiers, colors and flavors that I could barely pronounce that are used in packaged foods. Brenda breaks down which may be harmful vs others that sound scarier than they are.
  • But that’s not all.. we also get into the benefits of fortified foods, nutrients like K-2, and omega-3 fats and functional foods.
