Today’s episode is all about antinutrients. We define them as substances found in foods that cause problems in the body sometimes -- meaning, they are not always harmful to everyone. We talk more in-depth about the food sources and potential harmful effects of specific antinutrients such as Phytic Acid, Lectins, Goitrogens, and Oxalates. We discuss how to prepare foods high in antinutrients to reduce digestive issues. We give you tips on how to adjust your diet if you are particularly sensitive to one of these antinutrients, as well as how to determine whether you do have a sensitivity. We give options for those who have high sensitivities to many antinutrients, such as using certain diets -- like autoimmune paleo and elemental -- as stepping stones to rebalance.

Most episodes we talk about healing the body and at times we also talk about healing the mind. Today we talk about healing our country. There is a lot of heated debate and contention within our country and we want to talk about how to have a more open dialogue. Less separation and more coming together. We talk about how we can try to fix the system rather than blaming those that are putting their life on the line. We also talk about how our health system is rather broken right now. We hope that this episode can motivate you to become active and stand up for what you believe.
