In this episode I share about I wanted to expound a bit on an aspect of what I shared in my last episode; 130 about my regenerative farm tour and fat soluble vitamins. As well as cover a bit more about why your cells are affected by bad fats. I shared about fat soluble vitamins in the nutrient dense foods I buy from my farmer - foods containin healthy fats. Today I want to provoke you to move towards that with greater fervor by exploring what the bad fats, rancid oils and trans fats have been doing to our health both collectively and individually.

Expanding our thoughts on the four letter word that starts with D

heal nutrition real food Feb 20, 2022

Words are spells that lead to magic, or not. 

If you look at the word DIET - you can see the first 3 letters spell the word DIE. 
A mentality that focuses on a diet can lead to seeing food as the enemy. It causes people to focus on their bad habits (perceived or real). People often choose to go on a diet to fix things they don't like about themselves, including fixing the number on the scale. Diets perpetuate a goal with the end in mind, a temporary 'fix'. 

If you look at the word HEALTH - you can see the first 4 letters spell the word HEAL. 
A mentality that focuses on food as nourishment and fuel. It causes people to focus on good habits and increasing their gains to crowd out their drains. It changes the timeline to a way of life versus a quick fix. It helps us focus on daily choices to help us move towards what we do want for our health and life versus what we don't want. 

Big difference. The choice is yours: "Die" or "Heal"}

PODCAST: The demonization of dairy, is so very unnecessary

In this episode, I shared a quick eagle's eye view on dairy and how we got to a time in history where we demonize it. I truly believe dairy is a power food. And, if you can tolerate it currently you should not remove it just because some 'expert' said it's bad for x,y,z reasons or health 'conditions'. 

Listen to Episode #82: The Demonization of dairy, is so very unnecessary  Find A Joy To Be Me on iTunes, iHeartRadio, Stitcher or Spotify 

A health 'condition' does not have to be a state of permanence or something we own anyway. I share 3 keys to consider when it comes to dairy: 1. the quality of the dairy, 2. your heredity/ancestry, 3. your current state of health. 

Why remove an entire food group if you don't have to. Elimination doesn't heal you, nutrition does. Renourishing the body and restoring function takes time, therefore patience. 

Two of my favorite resources to start getting education about quality dairy, as well as the benefits of...

PODCAST: Let's Ditch the Diet Dogma

I’m so tired, aren’t you of over analyzing what foods humans should or shouldn’t eat and people talking about this diet or that diet for this dis-ease state/ label or that. 

Listen to Episode #81: Ditch the Diet Dogma Find A Joy To Be Me on iTunes, iHeartRadio, Stitcher or Spotify 

There is no single diet created by a human that will ever work long term for anyone or anything. I don’t even care how much ‘scientific literature’ there is behind a given diet- there is no scientific literature out there that has the ability to observe all human over the span of a lifetime.

If you want to live your life according to a paper or diet someone else wrote based on their research -be my guest. I’m over it.

What I can say is, quality matters and to the degree it is possible I encourage sourcing quality outside of the slave system that has been created to mass produce cheaply for a profit with zero intention of benefiting the...
