Podcast Episode 133 with Timaree Hagenburger-Excusitarian Series

Welcome and thank you for listening. This Excusitarian episode with Timaree is entitled; I can’t eat well because I have to cook for my busy family. It can be a big challenge to eat healthy yourself if your family is used to take out and fast foods. Or if you are cooking plant based for yourself and your family wants the Standard American Fat filled diet. The take home message is “the burden is the gift” as the Nutrition Professor states it. It is up to the cook of famiy to create a safe eating environment that provides the nutrients necessary for children to grow and develop and adults to maintain health and wellness. This cannot be accomplished at the drive through window or from a box that only needs to be microwaved. But it does not need to be complicated and it should be quite tasty and wonderful to see and smell. Find the go to meal that everyone can enjoy. Add color to you plate. Timaree makes a Cheezy Parm that consist of nutritional yeast, 1/2 cup of nuts, garlic powder, and lemon zest all pulsed together and then used to sprinkle on steamed greens or to top a potato. Besides her book, The Foodie Bar Way we discussed Nudge by Richard Thaler and The Little Things by Andy Andrews. Check out thenutritionprofessor.com for great tips and recipes.
