In a startling revelation over 90% of Americans struggle to accurately read and interpret food labels. 

Understanding what goes into our bodies is the cornerstone of a healthy lifestyle. 

And food labels are more than just a list; they're a roadmap to better health, revealing the nutrients, ingredients, and potential allergens in our food that can heal or harm us. 

By not comprehending these labels, we risk exposing our bodies to harmful additives, excessive sugars, and unhealthy fats that can derail our health goals.

Which is why in this week’s podcast with Jen Smiley, the founder and food expert of Wake Up and Read the Labels, we take a deep dive into why and (more importantly) how to read food labels. Here are some of the fun facts you’ll learn…

  • The top 3 ingredients to avoid in processed foods

  • The most surprising *healthy* ingredients you may want to avoid 

  • The oils that you’ll want to avoid

  • The problem with natural flavors (and why some may be ok!)

  • Why you often see vitamins on processed food labels

  • The vegan food you’ll want to avoid on labels

  • Why artificial flavors can be problematic 

  • Her least and most favorite bread brands

  • How citric acid is made 

  • Her favorite clean brands 

  • Her go-to breakfast

  • Her favorite clean condiments and pasta

  • Our favorite morning drinks

  • How to get kids to embrace clean foods 

  • And so much more!

Becoming a label-savvy consumer is imperative for vibrant health, so please tune in and share this important conversation with everyone you love.

We’ve all heard cows emit more greenhouse gasses than cars and cow farts are destroying the planet, but these often-cited *facts* are simply inaccurate.

Beef can be an environmentally-destructive or environmentally-friendly food depending on how it's raised.

So in this week’s podcast author, attorney and rancher, Nicolette Hahn Niman, busts myths about beef and animal agriculture so you can understand the true environmental and human health consequences of the meat you eat. Here are a few of my favorite topics:

  • The environmental consequences of factory farms
  • Do cows emit more greenhouse gasses than cars?
  • The human health consequences of factory farms 
  • The banned additives used in factory farms
  • The 2 meats almost always raised in factory farms 
  • The bacterial infection linked to factory farms
  • The truth about beef & methane
  • The 3 issues with the methane argument
  • The benefits of cows for the environment
  • Why she gave up vegetarianism
  • Why meat helps us age more gracefully

I LOVED this conversation and hope you do, too! Please share this valuable information with anyone you think might benefit.
