It’s often been said that our current food supply is broken; in many ways this is an accurate statement. As recent as 60 years ago, our dairy products had much more naturally occurring conjugated linolenic acid or CLA, a natural occuring trans fat that is now recognized for its anti-cancer properties. This is because dairy cattle used to eat grasses more so than the corn and soy that they do today. Cows are meant to eat grass, not grains & legumes. This has also alter the levels of vitamin K2, a vitamin that helps to prevent cancer and heart disease. Beef cattle also use to eat grass and have much lower levels of omega-6 fats and more omega-3, something that is a skew today.

The point is, eating today is much more difficult than ever before because the food supply has been altered through farming practices but also because of the way we now manufacture them. Did you know that there are well over 20 different kinds of milk? Some with extra calcium, some with flax oil – it’s enough to make you want to pull your hair out, or give up trying to eat more healthfully altogether.

Fret not. Working with Doug will help you to make sense of it all. He’ll cut through the maze of confusion and hype by taking seemingly complicated concepts and explaining them in easy-to-understand terms and analogies enabling you to move forward on your healthy eating journey.
