Episode 118: Exploring Plant Foods For Better Health

Ep: 118 Exploring Plant Foods For Better Health

In today’s episode we explore Dr. John McDougall’s Book, The Starch Solution. Last week, we looked at SOS which is looking at salt, oil and sugar added to our diets aiming to reduce or eliminate.

This week, we’re exploring starch as a solution to better health. We go over calories in several of the most common starches such as potatoes, rice, lentils, beans and corn. We look at how a person could create satisfaction by adding starch to every meal.

Mcdougal’s suggestion is to have 50 percent of each meal in starch to create satisfaction while consuming the other 50 percent in whole plants such as broccoli, cauliflower, carrots etc.

I recommend getting his book and really exploring this way of eating. I also recommend going to his website and exploring his free content Drmcdougall.com

After going over some of his book, I share a faux nacho cheese recipe to put on top of vegetables.
