    Episode 52: How Eating Kimchi Increases the Diversity of Your Gut Microbes {Minnie Luong, Founder Chi Kitchen Foods)

    Episode 52: How Eating Kimchi Increases the Diversity of Your Gut Microbes {Minnie Luong, Founder Chi Kitchen Foods)

    In this episode Sarah talks with Minnie Luong all about Kimchi! Minnie is the founder of Chi Kitchen Foods where they make traditional style fermented kimchi products and in the episode she explains what kimchi is and why it is beneficial for our gut health. Kimchi is full of ‘good bacteria’ and when we consume the probiotics found in fermented food it can help us maintain a healthy digestion ecosystem within our body. In fact just last summer, Stanford researchers found that a 10-week diet high in fermented foods can boost your microbiome diversity and can improve your immune response! 

    Minnie also tells us a little of the history of kimchi and her story on how and why she started her business. She also gives us some great tips on how to incorporate more kimchi into our diet. If you are wondering how to improve your gut health through whole foods, eating kimchi is a great place to start. Chi Kitchen foods even has a plant based kimchi that contains no animal products which according to Brown University eating Kimchi without fish products has the same type of bacteria as more traditionally made kimchi- totally sounds like a win for me! Connect with Chi Kitchens to learn more about their products.

    Episode 49: Are Carbs Bad? {Health & Habit Change Coach Layne Stowell}

    Episode 49: Are Carbs Bad? {Health & Habit Change Coach Layne Stowell}

    In this episode, Sarah talks with health and habit change coach Layne Stowell, founder of Elevated Health Coaching. Layne is on a mission to help busy professionals see the healthy choice as the simple choice and that includes information about carbs! The simple truth is we need carbs - they give us energy. The problem is when we eat too many 'simple carbs' - think processed food - and not enough 'complex carbs' - think vegetables! Complex carbs are full of fiber and nutrients and are good for us! Layne also explains how to habit change and think of carbs in 'quality not quantity'. It's all about most of the choices you make being the healthy choice and looking at your nutrition on a spectrum - rather than limiting what you can or can't eat which might lead to some obsessive food behaviors or leaving you feeling bad about 'falling off the wagon'. So definitely eat your carbs just start to take notice of when you eat the processed white bread, how it makes you feel and pivot to understanding how a complex carb full of fiber might give you more energy and keep you full longer.

Great content, much needed!

I am mostly a plant based eater already, not entirely, but after listening to Sarah and Joe, I am tempted to go plants completely! They are so knowledgeable and fun to listen to. Highly recommend Episode 24 on emotional eating ... that one hit home for me as a woman and had great tips! Will be listening again!!
