IN THIS SERIES, WE’RE LOOKING AT COMMON INGREDIENTS FOUND IN OUR FRIDGE THAT HARM OUR HEALTH AND FINDING BETTER OPTIONS THAT BOOST IT.
SOY SAUCE, GMO's & IMMUNE BOOSTING SUBS EPISODE
90% of Soy is GMO. Non-GMO soy is hard on the natural process of the body. Altered levels of hormones and harder work to break down and process means.... yep, inflammation and disruption in our system.
In this episode, Brandon guides you through the best method by changing our logic and navigating healthier soy sauce alternatives. All while keeping that same great taste and enjoyment we love from the traditional condiment. Not only avoiding the harm, but adding good to build on the progress the changes are providing you!! A step forward vs a step backwards is two steps forward. Keep pushing forward through healing digestion, inflammation and the My Simple Changes method.
The truth of it all is, if it's debated or proven it doesn't belong. Stick to what we know and what works. Build from there. Heal through new habits.
EGGS & POOR NUTRITION
Eggs are in just about everything. Almost as much as corn. Two issues with this:
1. The quality of the eggs
2. The effects of eggs
Both cause gut disruptions and inflammation. In this episode, Brandon navigates through the coop, explains the conditions, provides the risks and leaves you with a healthy alternatives and what to look for if eggs be thy choice.
PICKLES & HEALTHY PROBIOTIC BACTERIA
Americans have a third less bacteria in our bodies then undeveloped nations. We live too clean. We've killed beneficial bacteria through antibiotics, cleaning practices, our fear of bacteria and the overall process of how we live from youth until adult. This exposes us to diseases and ailments and the wearing down of the body because of not having enough "soldiers" to fight "invaders".
In this episode, Brandon examines the benefits of probiotics, fermented foods and the dangers of not having enough good bacteria in our bodies. He gives his advice on this aspect of the diet and building a healthier body through incorporating probiotics and fermented foods back into our bodies. All while avoiding foods that expose us to harmful inflammation, autoimmune disorders and detrimental disease.
BUTTER & READING LABELS
With this goal of cleaning it up one change at a time, that involves limiting the amount of immune system inhibitors we consume. One being substances in butter.

NUT BUTTERS & AVOIDING HARMFUL ADDITIVES
Nut butters provide healthy omega fats, vitamin E, dietary fiber, potassium, selenium and so on... BUT the other ingredients? And the way the nut butter was processed? Well, that's another story. A story that doesn't have a happy ending. Inflammation causing agents like gmo's, low quality oils, artificial binders and other added ingredients make this typically highly promoted, "healthy snack", not so snacky. In fact, you're doing much more harm to your body then good.
In this episode, Brandon examines the kinds of nut butters you should be looking for to avoid inflammation. He also analyzes the benefits those options provide and how the healthy dietary fiber gives your gut a much needed boost for healthier digestion and nutrient absorption.
