The Mountain Life - August 12, 2015
In this episode of The Mountain Life, Lynn Ware Peek and guest host Carolyn Frankenburg take a look at micronutrients – vitamins and minerals and how 90 percent of Americans, according to our guests Dr. Jayson Calton and nutritionist Mira Calton, are deficient in at least one of these heath promoting elements. What are the essential micronutrients, and how do we get them in our diets? Or do we?
Then they look into the origins of processed foods with shelf lives of, well, forever – and the tie in to the U.S. military. They speak with Anastacia Marx de Salcedo about the genesis of why Americans eat more processed food than anyone else in the world. If you’ve ever wondered how ready-to-eat foods infiltrated your kitchen.
