Toni and Jenny take a road trip to NYC and there is NO BROADWAY involved!!! Whaaaat??? Instead, Toni and Jenny had a wonderful chat with Michelle Routhenstein, a dietitian and cookbook author who specializes in heart health. Considering heart disease is the number 1 killer in this nation and as Michelle points out, 80% of heart disease is changeable with nutrition, this is an important topic! Michelle breaks down fats to an understandable level and emphasizes the point that fat is absolutely essential in the diet. She also explains inflammation and the steps we can all take to decrease the inflammatory process. The three of them get into the “Why” behind food choices and how to harness that power to create momentum around making healthy food a priority on a regular basis. The best part about the conversation is how many quick and easy ideas Michelle offers up for veggie-based meals and snacks, taking the research and boiling it down into usable and creative ways to love your food and your heart! To see more of her ideas and inspiration you can check out her cookbook, The Truly Easy Heart Healthy Cookbook.
