Where do food and medicine meet? In the kitchen! This week, I chat with Dr. Linda Shiue, one of the few MD’s who is also a trained chef. She has dedicated her life’s work to bridging the gap between the medical, nutrition and culinary worlds. We discuss how a plant based diet impacts your health and Dr. Shiue offers some great tips on how to prepare some tantalizing plant-forward recipes!

Precision nutrition enables investigation of many factors that influence our health—whether the composition of foods we eat, how and when we eat, and what influence our genetics and the composition of our microbiomes has on health. I speak with Dr. Sarah Berry, a nutrition scientist at Kings College London who was led more than 30 randomized clinical trials on human nutrition and cardio-metabolic health. She shares some key insights from the large PREDICT studies, which assess the genetic, metabolic, metagenomic, and meal-dependent effects on metabolic responses to food.

For our Valentine’s Day episode, I speak with Polish ethnobotanist and foraging expert, Dr. Łukasz Łuczaj about how humans connect to nature! Łukasz shares his work on wild foods—including plants, mushroom, and insects—and how this ties into cultural histories of the people who consume them. In addition to the edible aspects of the wild, we discuss Łukasz’s new book Sex in Nature: A Guide to Making Love in the Forests and Meadows to learn about the many other ways people connect with the outdoors!
