Babies need protein and healthy fats to grow their brains and bodies. Unfortunately, most baby food on the supermarket shelves is low in these macronutrients, and alarmingly high in sugar. 

How can we nourish our little ones well from the start? Joe and Serenity Carr, the couple behind Serenity Kids baby food, offer their tips on today's podcast.They cover how to handle picky eaters, the "flavor window" from 4 to 18-months that is critical to broaden a child's palate, the importance of modeling healthy eating, and what fats to avoid & which to include when nourishing children.

They also tell their own health journey and why they are so committed to helping every family make every bite count for their little ones.

Healthy soil. It's not just what we need for potted plants. It's what we all need to survive. Nicole Masters, agro-ecologist and author of "For the Love of Soil," explains on today's podcast just why our health and the health of the soil are so inextricably intertwined.

She tells her personal story of how an herbicide jeopardized her health, though she did not know it at first. She goes over why monocrops are a problem (even organic monocrops), the correlation between chemical companies and pharmaceutical companies, and how personal testing meters are being developed to help us better assess the quality of our food and the health of the soil. In the end, she offers ideas to diversify and regenerate both the land, and our guts, for improved health.

Breastmilk from a well-nourished mother is the best option for early nourishment. But when this isn’t possible, a homemade baby formula is the next best alternative. On this podcast, Sally Fallon Morell, president of the Weston A. Price Foundation, explains in detail how and why she and her colleague, Dr.Mary Enig, developed an alternative to commercial formula. She discusses its composition, its success rate with babies, why it is preferable to commercial formulas (with their rancid oils and denatured ingredients) and alternative recipes for those babies that show signs of allergies or sensitivities.

We often think about eating food produced sustainably but give little thought to the "sustainability" of our own lifestyle. A full calendar does not equal contentment, by any stretch. If you're ready to get off of the treadmill, it's time to look at slow living.

Today, Mary & Emma Kingsley, of Lady Farmer, a sustainable apparel and lifestyle company, offer ideas for cultivating a a mindful, conscious pace in a fast-paced world. They talk about the importance of intention when it comes to food and clothing choices. They share their own personal pathway to a slower lifestyle. They remind us that slow living can be attained regardless of where you reside, and that a more intentional, happier life is within reach for all of us.

We all know by now that sugar can lead to weight gain and cavities. But there is a lot about how sugar operates that we may not have realized before. The truth is that it ages us on the inside and out (causing wrinkles, for example). It shortens our lifespan. It leads to many modern diseases rooted in mitochondrial and metabolic dysfunction. 

Dr. Robert Lustig, endocrinologist, professor, and author, explains just how serious the situation is, on today's podcast. He uncovers the problem of hidden sugars in our food and how it weakens our immune system, making us vulnerable to sickness. He offers numerous suggestions for how to reduce our exposure to sugar and what to eat in its place.

Grains, seeds, nuts, and legumes have anti-nutrients that make them difficult to digest and restrict our absorption of important minerals. Looking to the traditions of the past, we discover the secret for making the most of them in our diet today. In this episode, Sally Fallon Morell, the President of the Weston A. Price Foundation, explains principle #6 of the Wise Traditions diet: the importance of fermenting, soaking, and sprouting grains, seeds, and nuts for optimal nutrition and ease of digestion.

Sally goes into detail about the benefits of traditional preparation methods, and of the risks that result when we do not take care to prepare these foods in this way. Best of all, she gives clear tips for what steps beginners can take to neutralize anti-nutrients. She also gives us an overview of what the proper preparation of nuts, seeds, grains, and legumes looks like, all around the world.
