Is there a significant relationship between food nutrition and your health? Ultimately it comes down to finding out what works well for each of us and understanding health related issues like, how many edible plant species are there and available for us to eat.
In this podcast episode of The Mental Minute, I look at nutrition from the basis of how nutrient dense whole foods are so that we can learn how to spend less money on food. By getting more nutrition from our foods and eating a wide variety of foods like more edible plants, there ultimately will be a significant correlation between, food diversity, illness, and our health.

Lactobacillus. Bifidus. Gut Flora... You may not know what these words mean, but if you are in the habit of taking a probiotic pill, these are more than likely common probiotic strains found in them. What exactly do probiotics do? Even if you don't know exactly how they work, I bet you've heard this common phrase before, "If you want your gut and immune system to be healthy, take probiotics".
But Monica Reinagel, The Nutrition Diva, gves a different perspective and presents some poignant information that might not be something you would expect from someone in the health industry. In her recent article "Are Probiotic Foods A Waste Of Time" she wonders, when it comes to probiotics, "people may be stocking the pond but starving the fish?"
Monica explains the rationale in her most recent podcast.
Take Monica Reinagel's advice, if probiotics are part of your daily routine, begin to focus on what you feed your gut bacteria which could be the key that ultimately opens up the box of better health.

Many times when people begin their journey to living a better life, the first step for most is a trip to the health food store to stock up on pills and vitamins and supplements believing getting more of those things will stop many ills.
But in my podcast, I explain why the path begins inside you. You should first ask yourself if your current eating plan is making you overweight. Then you should look at how your body uses the foods you choose to eat. Once you do that, you will see a clear road map as to how you can live not only a full life, but a long one as well.
Bonus: As you age, your nutritional requirements change. In fact, your whole eating schedule changes. I've included a step by step plan for you to get the most out of what you eat using simple foods. (Click here for my plan to be your healthiest you can be).
These podcasts are an extension of me sharing what I believe is the source to be healthy emotionally, mentally, physically, and spiritually: a strong gut.
