A transcript for this episode is available online in blog form at Transcript: Doug Evans, Nora Gedgaudas and Dr. Jade Teta Interview on Nutrition for Longevity.
What can nutrition experts agree on? We got together a plant based vegan, a pioneer in the paleo eating movement, and two naturopathic doctors who have seen the results of many different kinds of diets. Doug Evans, Nora Gedgaudas and Dr. Jade Teta join Dr. Greg Kelly to discuss:
- Are vegetables good for you?
- Preferences, psychology, physiology, practical
- Creating a well functioning metabolism
- Food accessibility and affordability
- How to stay satiated
- The importance of food quality
Nutrition is very individual. What works for you might not work for somebody else. The diet that gets you healthy might not necessarily keep you healthy. This podcast will give you insights on how your diet impacts your longevity, as well as what kind of diet is right for you.
Doug Evans is an early pioneer in the natural food industry. In 2002 he co-founded Organic Avenue, one of the first exclusively plant-based retail chains in the country. He then created and founded Juicero, the first fresh, farm to glass automatic cold-press juicer, with the mission of bringing fresh-processed foods to the home.
He is now focusing his time on spreading the message about the planet’s most nutritious food, sprouts. The Sprout Book just released on April 7th. It’s the first book on sprouting from a major publisher.
Doug lives in the Mojave Desert on a permaculture hot springs oasis.
