What exactly are fermented foods and why should we be eating them? Rick and Kate have no idea and think they might be gross, but their guest Vicki Shanta Retelny has all the answers everyone needs. What are some common fermented foods? What are the types and processes of fermentation? What are the benefits for health and immunity, and what role do bacteria play in our digestive tract? Vicki Shanta Retelny, RDN, LDN, is a nationally-recognized lifestyle nutrition expert, culinary and media consultant. She walks Kate and Rick through gut health, the power of kombucha, and why is everyone so hopped up on probiotics.
Is it possible to get all of our nutrients from food and not have to take supplements? If we need supplements, which ones do we take? Kate and Rick interview Dr. Ryan Kneessi, a Naturopath focusing on using a holistic, scientific approach to achieving optimal health through exercise and nutrition. Find out the ingredients in supplements we should be avoiding, and what allows a supplement to actually be absorbed by the body. Bye-bye bedpan bullets! (We explain that too).
