PHYTONUTRIENTS! What are they? Why are they important? Where can I find them? Today I welcome back Dr. Allen Williams, global leader in Regenerative Agriculture, to discuss phytonutrients - the micronutrients in plants that help our human bodies ward off inflammation, oxidative stress, and other harmful "stuff". Think about a bright red strawberry, orange carrot, the deep purple of beets, the white flesh of onions . . . you get the idea! These colors tell us something about their benefits, but so does their taste. AND, there's a way to measure them in your own kitchen too. So cool!

Dr. Williams ALSO shines a light on HOW they were grown. Anything grown in healthy and bio-diverse soil (aka, "regeneratively") ensures those nutrients are there in abundance (vs commodity grown crops that continue to decline in the richness of their nutrients).

We also get into growing your own food and befriending your local farmers. Why not stop by the Farmer's Market in your area next Saturday? Or any day they're open.

You're going to LOVE this episode and will come away with a whole new appreciation for the phrase "eat a rainbow"! And don't forget to check Understanding Ag's website throughout this year and next, as their phytonutrient research findings will be published there.

Here are some resources we discussed (and a few we didn't, but are helpful):
