Our most nourishing meals are not simply those that fill our bellies. Today, chef, teacher, and author Holly Davis helps us explore the many facets to deep nourishment:  Taste. Texture. Simplicity. Beauty. Appropriateness.

This conversation is not a how-to, really, or a lecture on what we should and shouldn't do. Rather, it's a gentle reminder to become intentional about how we approach eating and serving others. 

We take Holly's book, Nourish, as a starting point. From there, we discuss the value of sustainable food production, and of knowing where our food comes from. Holly sprinkles in advice for parents of picky eaters. She talks about how the "five element theory" can be a guide while cooking. And she points to the role our attitude plays as we put together a meal that truly nurtures both the body and the spirit.

Have you heard of kefir? It's an amazing probiotic drink that offers vitamins, minerals, metabolites, enzymes, amino acids, peptides and more to help sustain and regain health. Victor Cozzetto, of Vitagenics, explores the wonders of this ancient drink on today's episode.

He discusses gut health (and how kefir can help repair the gut lining), the importance of a holistic mindset when it comes to healing, why it's better to get bacteria from our food and drink (as opposed to a pill) and why making kefir is so very satisfying and gratifying. 

If you're new to kefir, this podcast offers a sweet introduction to the drink. If you love it already, you'll find more reasons to do so.

Twenty-seven percent of Americans have sleep issues. What keeps us tossing and turning or waking up and having trouble falling back asleep? Today, Dylan Petkus, of Optimal Circadian Health, helps us analyze our sleep patterns and troubleshoot the issues. 

What keeps us awake? For starters, anxiety. Blue light that suppresses melatonin function. A poor sleep environment. And more.

To improve our sleep quality, Dylan talks about the importance of circadian rhythm, mitochondria, environment, and mindset. And he offers concrete take-aways to help us rediscover the benefits of deep, restorative sleep.

The Impossible Burger. The Beyond Burger. Lab meat. All of these are touted as healthy alternatives to the real deal: a beef burger. Today, Sally Fallon Morell, the head of the Weston A. Price Foundation makes a case for including animal products in our diet.

As Sally goes over the highlights from the fall Wise Traditions journal, she goes in-depth, explaining why pseudo meat is a poor substitute for real meat. Their cheap and highly-processed ingredients (including soy, pea protein, artificial flavorings, and colorings) make for an unhealthy choice for us and for the planet.

In this episode, Sally also touches on the importance of mitochondrial health, “gentle cooking,” and the dangers of ultrasound technology and even microwave ovens. The conversation, overall, is a solid reminder of why we need to return to real foods and natural approaches for cultivating good health.
