In today’s society, “healthy eating” is often equated to eating more salads while cutting out gluten, dairy, and sugar.But are these trends really helping to nourish our bodies or are they causing us to eat less nutrient-dense real foods and instead consume more heavily processed, man-made, fake foods?As today’s guest says, “As a society, we’re eating more than ever before, but we’re starving on a cellular level.”So how can we learn how to read food labels and identify foods stuffed with fillers, preservatives, and synthetic ingredients? And how can we incorporate more real foods into our diet that nourish our bodies on a deeper level?That’s what this episode explores as Jordan talks with functional nutritionist Annika Duden. Together they talk about the fake foods infiltrating the standard American diet and why it’s so important to prioritize eating bioavailable and nutrient-dense whole foods instead.This is a juicy one! So grab your headphones and tune in to learn:What the metabolism is and what it looks like to pursue a pro-metabolic way of eatingWhat hyper-palatable foods are and how they’re causing us to be undernourishedExamples of real vs. fake foodThe problem with our gluten-free, dairy-free, and sugar-free trends and how to source high-quality optionsThe best drinks to nourish your body and replenish mineralsCommon sources of toxins in the kitchen and swaps we can makeWant to dig deeper into this topic?

I just listened to the latest episode of "SHE with Jordan Lee Dooley" and I'm absolutely blown away! Jordan always brings such insightful and empowering content, and this episode was no exception. The way she discusses topics related to personal growth, authenticity, and navigating life's challenges truly resonates with me. In this episode, her discussion about setting healthy boundaries and prioritizing self-care really hit home. It's a reminder that taking care of ourselves is not selfish, but rather a crucial step towards leading a fulfilling life and being able to give our best to others.
