137 – Using food to end generational diseases in her community with Dr. Lauren Powell
What’s good everyone,
I can’t believe it’s that time of year again. We’re in the holiday season and that brings celebrations, family events, and big dinner.
Although the food is great, much of it isn’t very healthy. Is a Turduken healthy!?? Let’s be honest, some of the foods we eat or how we cook has been passed down through generations. It’s 2019 and a lot has changed with how we think about food and nutrition.
My next guest, who is Dr. Lauren Powell, has something to say about this. Dr. Lauren, also known as “The Culinary Doctor,” is a board-certified family medicine doctor. Her goal is to meet individuals at whatever stage they’re at on their health journey and end generational patterns of food-related diseases.
Dr. Powell is serious about her goals. She’s meeting folks at live events with cooking demos, on television, podcasts and even with her Amazon Best-Selling book Food Essentials for the Busy Professional.
Things you’ll learn in this episode:
- How a close family member’s health scare shifted her focus to culinary medicine
- How busy professionals can eat healthier
- Tips to improve your social media
- How she answers #imnotjustadoc
