I’ve been researching health and nutrition since 2004. After my mom died at the age of 46 after a 10-year battle with an autoimmune disease, I started questioning how we take care of our bodies. I read a book that challenged some of my preconceptions about diet, and I starting changing habits, such as eating grass-fed meat and raw milk. Pretty quickly, I was seeing positive results: getting sick less, feeling better. When I met my now-wife in 2010, she got interested in the way I was eating, changed her own diet and healed her gut enough to come off medication for Crohn’s disease.
I’ve been a nutritional consultant for a local personal training studio since 2011. I am not a licensed health professional, just a passionate researcher and educator. All information I share is the result of my own study and experience, and should not be taken as medical advice.
I live with my wife, Shanna, and our two small kids, in Nashville, TN.
Looks like a vegetable roundup this week… of course, mama always said to eat your vegetables.
1. Don’t forget to eat your greens
Fascinating article discussing how chlorophyll in greens could reverse the effects of aflatoxin poisoning (like from peanut butter)
2. Eat fat with your veggies
Good fats help the body absorb the fat-soluble nutrients. So put some olive oil on your salad! Good article.
The study can be found here. Broccoli sprouts are an even better and more powerful way to get your sulforaphane.
