The health trends we shouldn’t be following…

I haven’t talked nutrition in awhile, mostly because I think we make food too complicated as it is, and I really like to keep it simple: Start with real food, figure out which foods work for you, eliminate those that don’t. But Krista Acuna is here with some information that’s working for her patients, and that I found surprising and surprisingly helpful. Listen to her debunk some of the most common health trends in favor of some surprising “superfoods.”

What We Talk About

    • Lard. That is all.
    • How raw dairy got a bad rap
    • Why bacon is a-ok and what to look for when buying it
    • Why kombucha might be overrated (aack!!)
    • Raw kale isn’t your friend?
    • Why fish protein isn’t enough
    • How to reintroduce meats into your diet (this is me)
    • When not to drink water
    • What supplements help stoke the digestive fire: Betaine HCL and digestive enzymes


Additional Resources 

  • Muscle testing – I was so intrigued by this part of our conversation that I’m already planning a follow up show on this topic – stay tuned!
  • Kristi is all about the pasture-raised, humane farming conditions for healthy animal proteins. Pick a documentary from this list and have your eyes opened to what’s happening with the alternative (industrial farming): “10 best food and health documentaries” (PS – I think Food Inc. is one of the best)
  • Kristi has a 10-video series on You Tube covering the food we talk about in detail. You can start with video #1 here:
  • If you want more info on candida or kombucha, catch these episodes:
