Nutrition & Digestibility of Bread with Vanessa Kimbell Healthily

    • Nutrition

This episode is a must-listen for anyone on a restrictive diet, who feels fed up and at a loss as to what to do about it. In this episode, baker Vanessa Kimbell shares the story of her love affair with baking, alongside the health challenges she faced following years of multiple rounds of antibiotics, which led to her becoming sensitive to her favourite food: Bread. Vanessa's quest to recover the health of her gut microbiome and tolerate food again spurred her mission to understand bread on a whole new level. Fast-forward to the present day, and Vanessa is now on course to complete a doctorate in Nutrition and Digestibility of Bread, having founded The Sourdough School and authored 5 books on the subject. I can't think of anyone more qualified to discuss bread, baking, and a love of food with! I really hope you enjoy our conversation.
