NBSV 121: Gut health, “anti-nutrients”, and nutrition BS-busting with RD Desiree Nielsen

Maybe you’ve heard the terms; maybe you haven’t: gut health. Anti-nutrients. There are many terms, often elusive, that circulate within the nutrition realm. What do they mean, and which ones should we be paying attention to?

Registered Dietician Desiree Nielsen joins me to discuss these terms, chat about anti-nutrients, where we find them, and answer the big question: are they bad for us?

Alongside this subject and others, we dive into nutrition myth-busting, drop some mics, and discuss re-thinking the approach to nutrition as a whole.

Important topics and points you don't want to miss:

>> What exactly anti-nutrients are, and where we find them in food

>> The role of anti-nutrients [specifically] within plant foods, and their unique role to vegan diets

>> Are anti-nutrients 'bad' for us?
