Wellness Wednesday: Do we even NEED animal protein in our diets?

Want the facts on whether you should eat animal protein or plant protein? A documentary out last year features some doctors saying a plant-based diet is the way to go! I say it’s not that simple!

With so many conflicting opinions out there on nutrition, it’s hard to decide. I have studied and worked with NUTRITION AND DIGESTION clinically for 20 years. Because if you’re not talking extensively about digestion, that tells me you don’t fully understand nutrition. What happens AFTER you eat is equally as important as WHAT you eat. My experience and viewpoint isn’t the same noise we hear constantly. My background is vastly different than most, so is my perspective
