make light, season 3, episode, 13: tasting health
I don’t know about you, but I love food — and I’m completely overwhelmed by it. Who can make sense of all the “wisdom” out there around food — should we be eating Paleo? Whole 30? Gluten-free? Keto? Should we eat more red meat? Less?
This week, I’m thrilled to welcome Dr. Reeta Achari, a neurologist and food researcher. And while she confirms that it is all very overwhelming, she has some great advice on how to get started feeding your body for nourishment’s sake — and shares amazing stories of patients who ended up in her office because they followed societal “wisdom” to a fault.
