Wild Zora Meat & Veggie Bar
Alex and I are always looking for nutrient-rich, real food snacks we can enjoy on the go. So we’re thrilled to have Wild Zora as an official sponsor of the podcast. A complete and balanced snack is more than just meat, Wild Zora Meat and Veggie Bars include a balance of grass-fed or naturally raised meats mixed with one serving of certified-organic fruits and veggies. Every bar is super nutrient dense and 100% real food. Go over to WildZora.com to check out all their yummy flavors and stock up on their high-quality snacks.

Bacon Debate
We discuss the latest news that the World Health Organization has declared bacon and other processed meats as carcinogenic foods. To learn more about this, check out this article. We discuss our preliminary thoughts on the subject and what we choose to take away from this news. For more information about the science behind this, read The Paleo Mom’s article on the matter.

 

Gluten-Free Bread
We talk about the merits of gluten free bread options (which includes bread, pasta, pizza, etc.) and why we don’t include them in our diets on a regular basis (we talk about cross-reactivity and the immune system).  We also discuss when we DO choose to include these things in our diet and why we make those choices. Lastly, we talk about our favorite non-bread carb options that are equally nutritious.

Cold and Flu Remedies
With winter approaching, cold and flu season is right around the corner (especially if you have kids!), so we discuss all the remedies we use for ourselves when we’re coming down with illness. We talk about everything for neti pots to nasal steam baths to oil of oregano to rock-star herbs that help you decongest and decrease the length of your symptoms.

DIY Hand Sanitizer
Alex shares her favorite homemade hand sanitizer recipe. To get the full scoop, you can find the recipe by clicking here.  While she has to use the official hand sanitizer at work because of the regulations, she uses this version while traveling, at the store, and other germy places to cut down on her toxin/chemical exposure on a regular basis.  We also discuss how hand sanitizer fits into the general model of germ exposure and its link to the immune system.  

Egg Alternatives
Brittany discusses several different egg alternatives that can revolutionize your paleo baking world if you can’t enjoy eggs right now.  She talks all about the flax seed, chai seed and gelatin…and how to use them to substitute out the occasional egg in your baked goods.

Prenatal Multivitamins
Alex discusses how she came to the decision to start incorporating a multivitamin into her prenatal care and why she chose the Nutreince multivitamin by Mira and Jason Calton for all those needs. We talk about nutrient absorption/bioavailability, appropriate doses of nutrients, and MTHFR needs.

 

Losing the Last 5 Pounds
We both discuss our experiences with trying to lose those last 5 pounds and all the health consequences that followed as a result. (Spoiler alert: those stories aren’t great.) We also talk about resistant weight loss, leptin/ghrelin insensitivity, and whether those last 5 pounds matter for overall health.
