"We're going to discuss what it means to cook the weight and wellness way so I know often in our show. We talk about eating the weight and wellness way. But today we're going to shift that focus a little bit look a little further upstream in that process to cooking the weight and wellness way and how we go about cooking real food many of our listeners over the last couple of weeks and couple of months have called her emailed. Us questions about how to Cook Certain recipes so we actually had one of our dieticians Theresa Wagner. She's a registered and licensed Dietitian and she's a parent of three young kids herself. She offered up some really great ways to engage kids in this cooking and food preparation process so her blog is called. Oh my kids want to eat all the time plus four snacks to make together for quote Unquote Matt Class. So I I love that title but so she really goes into some really great Tips and tricks and ideas on how to set some routines. Some schedules get some boundaries in there for kids when they need that structure that they don't have from going to school every day right now and how to set up some of those some of that structure at home and as parents how we can make our job easier now that we are home coordinators and parents that were wearing many different hats at this point. So even though I'm not quite as seasoned of a mom is Teresa. I actually found this blog. Post really helpful and anyone some of our listeners. Out there have probably talked Theresa Had Her as their nutritionist. And you can really send her personality her sense of humor coming through in this blog so I thought she did a really great job with the writing in this particular article. So thank you Theresa for that and you can find. Theresa's article and any of the articles the blog articles that we right at our website weight and wellness dot com rate. So when we say cooking and eating the weight and wellness way. What does that really mean? You've heard US say eating the weight and wellness way for many many years now and very simply when we say e the weight and wellness way. We mean that this is an anti inflammatory eating plan. That is based on real food so I WANNA put a pin in that term anti inflammatory we will be circling back to that and for your overall health and wellbeing. We recommend evening real food. And that's a term you all as listeners have now heard many many times real food and you may have heard terms leg whole foods on processed foods foods that your grandparents eight or foods. That are plucked from the farmer's field as Melanie is infamous for saying we talk about eating real food. This is protein from grass fed animals vegetables that you could grow in the garden or that you could buy from the farmer and natural beneficial fats. We will really elaborate on those good fats leader on the show. It may surprise you to learn that most grains lentils some being products are actually inflammatory foods for many people so we suggest limiting the amount of these foods to no more than a half a cup per serving. I have some clients who are really sensitive to those foods and we do have to remove them completely sometimes but a lot of times even just at half cup serving is enough to help people bump their blood sugar up. Get a little bit of energy and still feel good now. We have listeners. That are here with us all over the world so we hope to offer each one of you a pearl of wisdom that will have you saying. Oh I didn't know that in the kitchen or the next time you're doing some meal prepping so I'm happy to share the Mike this morning for the first time with Marianne but before Marianne introduces herself. Mary-anne going to ask you about garlic because you had. I attended one of your kind of previews in the cooking. Classes that you did and you had some really interesting things to say about Garlic and I think even most of us in the room or really surprised by the information you shared so I'm going to hand it over to you. Great thanks Leah. So I am a big garlic lover. I like to put it in a lot of my recipes and so when I make my garlic the trick to getting all of the heart healthy or cancer fighting benefits out of that garlic is to allow it to sit for ten or fifteen minutes after you chop it or you crush it or mince it and it actually releases an enzyme which allows it to be more nutritious for us so once you let it. Rask then you can go ahead throw it into a pan and let it do its magic. That's super interesting because I have always just chopped the garlic and then boom right into the pan with the onions and everything like that so I think I like. I know I'd really took that Pearl away from you. That the time I heard you say that. Yeah we just have to be a little patient so then throw it on in and let it do. Its thing so my name is Maryanne. I am a farm to table chef and culinary nutrition educator with a company called the cooks cure and I work with nutritional weight and wellness to create some really fun cooking classes We developed some recipes and teach clients how to put their meal plans into practice into the kitchen. Yes and isn't that kind of that's the key thing is like you have all this knowledge about foods what they do for you but then how do you translate that into actually getting it onto your plate exactly? Yeah exactly so yeah. Marianne you mentioned the cooking classes that you offered in and we were able to get those in just before all the stay at home order stuff went into place. I know that it was a big request from a lot of our clients for many years to get some sort of education or just some sort of class around that and as soon as we opened it up for the masses to be able to enroll those classes filled up immediately we knew there was a demanded an interest for that and according to the reviews everyone really loved these classes for one reason or another and some people enjoyed learning the new recipes. Others said that they love the time saving tips. And I promise for those of you with local here to the twin cities that we will be offering these classes again as soon as we're all able to safely get back into meeting as a large group But Marianne you know I wasn't able to attend those classes. But do you remember anything in particular or one or two things that really people seem to look into? It really seem to hit home for people that they were able to take away. Absolutely we all had a lot of fun. They were great classes. They were full and And you know it was great is we had beginners and people that love to cook all in the same room and we learned from each other and we asked each other questions. It was fantastic and the other little nuggets. That was fun was Exposing people to vegetables that they might not try normally we. We tend to get into these these ruts and and in our routine of eating the same vegetables. So introducing something. A little unusual was really fun and everybody was really curious and I so enjoyed that was. It was a ton of fun so so I hope that we get back very soon too so that we can do those classes again and so you know now. That restaurants are closed indefinitely and people are staying at home. Almost everybody is dusting off their slow cookers and their instant pots. They're pulling out that collection of cookbooks and they're getting back into the kitchen. Which is a fantastic thing for me. It's the thing that I love so I'm thrilled. That people are doing that in so today. Leeann and I want to share some recipes and cooking tips and some reasons why cooking the weight and wellness way is changing lives here and all around the world. Yes I've been hearing that from clients to mary-anne that it's you know we're we're kind of forced into necessity at this point to actually have to dust off those aprons and get some of that cooking equipment and and dust off of skills a little bit absolutely. Yeah and right now. We want to touch on a few reasons. Why cooking the weight and wellness way or cooking and eating that real food at home is so much better for you and your family's health so I mean as a as a Dietitian I like some technical and the logical reasons to avoid cooking with those unfair refined fats and oils and on dishing up nutrition. We have said so many times that it is best to avoid the refined factory fats and oils in those foods and to actually eat for your house. Oh Marianne wants you just at least mention what some of those Refined oils are. You are so right Leah. So some of those really unhealthy refined oils that some people might find are soybean vegetable canola corn and cotton seed oil and nutritional weight and wellness. We recommend avoiding these refined fats and replacing them with real natural beneficial fats. Such as butter olive oil coconut oil avocado oil and even Bacon Grease or Lard Yum. Yeah the kind that our great grandparents used to us as to have a little coffee. Coffee can underneath the same and either Greece. Definitely so go to your cupboard and read the label on each oil and if you are still cooking with these refined damaging fats maybe now is the time to walk over to the garbage can toss out each bottle one by one and say to yourself. I am done using damage factory-made fats and oils. Yeah are a perfect will Maryanne. Let's put a pin in that for a second. We have to go to break the. You're listening to dishing up nutrition and today we're sharing a number of reasons why many people are cooking the weight and wellness way. And we'RE GONNA BE PROVIDING SOME TIPS TO HELP YOU. Make the most of your time in the kitchen. So we'll be right back going back to dishing up nutrition. I've worked in many restaurants and I've worked every station in those restaurants and one of the tricks that I learned was to always have lots of onions celery and carrots chopped because they are often the foundation of so many recipes and I'd like to add them to a lot of the recipes. I'm preparing and always have homemade bone broth to use in soups or anywhere recipe calls for water. That's my little trick to add a little nutrients and I usually add bone broth to add more protein and to make it more nutritious and we'll talk more about that later when we get into a recipe but we have a recipe on our website weightandwellness dot com. Yeah perfect bone broth. I I love that tip for. I'm guessing if you're cooking if you are cooking grains or if you're like you said any kind of soup that calls for a brother you just need that little something extra that homemade bone broth can be really great. Yeah it's fantastic. Yeah wonderful So Marianne before we went to break you were mentioning enlisting off some of those more refined damaging oils that we need to watch out for so that was soybean oil canola. Oil Cottonseed oil corn corn. Oil those are a couple of of the oils to watch out for and so you know some of our clients still use those as as cooking oil so we encourage getting away from those. We'll talk about the better substitutes here in just a minute. I would also encourage our listeners here this morning if you're at home That go in your cupboards and also look at. What are the oils? Look in the ingredients list for your salad. Dressings for your mayonnaise for any baked goods that you might have or the crackers that are sitting in your pantry because these are where some of these oils sneak in as well. Sometimes it's not only the oils that we are cooking with. It's the things where these products were. These oils are hiding. Also and so. If you're wondering I mean why do we as Dietitian nutritionist? Why are we so opposed to using these types of refined factory fats and oils? But let's just take a look at soybean oil specifically and soy soybean oil is the most widely consumed oil in the United States. So let's let's just pick on soybean oil for a moment in January of twenty twenty so this is very recent. New Research from the University of California Riverside found that soybean oil can cause neurological problems such as autism Alzheimer's Disease Anxiety and depression and they had done some previous research back in two thousand fifteen so a couple of years earlier and they reported that soybean oil was linked to obesity diabetes insulin resistance and even fatty liver disease in mice. So now we have this oil that is really affecting our body's metabolic -ly but also neurologically or thinking about our brain and so we would say what is not good for mice. This also not good for man and the research team at the University of California.

Cooking the Weight and Wellness Way

"We're going to discuss what it means to cook the weight and wellness way so I know often in our show. We talk about eating the weight and wellness way. But today we're going to shift that focus a little bit look a little further upstream in that process to cooking the weight and wellness way and how we go about cooking real food many of our listeners over the last couple of weeks and couple of months have called her emailed. Us questions about how to Cook Certain recipes so we actually had one of our dieticians Theresa Wagner. She's a registered and licensed Dietitian and she's a parent of three young kids herself. She offered up some really great ways to engage kids in this cooking and food preparation process so her blog is called. Oh my kids want to eat all the time plus four snacks to make together for quote Unquote Matt Class. So I I love that title but so she really goes into some really great Tips and tricks and ideas on how to set some routines. Some schedules get some boundaries in there for kids when they need that structure that they don't have from going to school every day right now and how to set up some of those some of that structure at home and as parents how we can make our job easier now that we are home coordinators and parents that were wearing many different hats at this point. So even though I'm not quite as seasoned of a mom is Teresa. I actually found this blog. Post really helpful and anyone some of our listeners. Out there have probably talked Theresa Had Her as their nutritionist. And you can really send her personality her sense of humor coming through in this blog so I thought she did a really great job with the writing in this particular article. So thank you Theresa for that and you can find. Theresa's article and any of the articles the blog articles that we right at our website weight and wellness dot com rate. So when we say cooking and eating the weight and wellness way. What does that really mean? You've heard US say eating the weight and wellness way for many many years now and very simply when we say e the weight and wellness way. We mean that this is an anti inflammatory eating plan. That is based on real food so I WANNA put a pin in that term anti inflammatory we will be circling back to that and for your overall health and wellbeing. We recommend evening real food. And that's a term you all as listeners have now heard many many times real food and you may have heard terms leg whole foods on processed foods foods that your grandparents eight or foods. That are plucked from the farmer's field as Melanie is infamous for saying we talk about eating real food. This is protein from grass fed animals vegetables that you could grow in the garden or that you could buy from the farmer and natural beneficial fats. We will really elaborate on those good fats leader on the show. It may surprise you to learn that most grains lentils some being products are actually inflammatory foods for many people so we suggest limiting the amount of these foods to no more than a half a cup per serving. I have some clients who are really sensitive to those foods and we do have to remove them completely sometimes but a lot of times even just at half cup serving is enough to help people bump their blood sugar up. Get a little bit of energy and still feel good now. We have listeners. That are here with us all over the world so we hope to offer each one of you a pearl of wisdom that will have you saying. Oh I didn't know that in the kitchen or the next time you're doing some meal prepping so I'm happy to share the Mike this morning for the first time with Marianne but before Marianne introduces herself. Mary-anne going to ask you about garlic because you had. I attended one of your kind of previews in the cooking. Classes that you did and you had some really interesting things to say about Garlic and I think even most of us in the room or really surprised by the information you shared so I'm going to hand it over to you. Great thanks Leah. So I am a big garlic lover. I like to put it in a lot of my recipes and so when I make my garlic the trick to getting all of the heart healthy or cancer fighting benefits out of that garlic is to allow it to sit for ten or fifteen minutes after you chop it or you crush it or mince it and it actually releases an enzyme which allows it to be more nutritious for us so once you let it. Rask then you can go ahead throw it into a pan and let it do its magic. That's super interesting because I have always just chopped the garlic and then boom right into the pan with the onions and everything like that so I think I like. I know I'd really took that Pearl away from you. That the time I heard you say that. Yeah we just have to be a little patient so then throw it on in and let it do. Its thing so my name is Maryanne. I am a farm to table chef and culinary nutrition educator with a company called the cooks cure and I work with nutritional weight and wellness to create some really fun cooking classes We developed some recipes and teach clients how to put their meal plans into practice into the kitchen. Yes and isn't that kind of that's the key thing is like you have all this knowledge about foods what they do for you but then how do you translate that into actually getting it onto your plate exactly? Yeah exactly so yeah. Marianne you mentioned the cooking classes that you offered in and we were able to get those in just before all the stay at home order stuff went into place. I know that it was a big request from a lot of our clients for many years to get some sort of education or just some sort of class around that and as soon as we opened it up for the masses to be able to enroll those classes filled up immediately we knew there was a demanded an interest for that and according to the reviews everyone really loved these classes for one reason or another and some people enjoyed learning the new recipes. Others said that they love the time saving tips. And I promise for those of you with local here to the twin cities that we will be offering these classes again as soon as we're all able to safely get back into meeting as a large group But Marianne you know I wasn't able to attend those classes. But do you remember anything in particular or one or two things that really people seem to look into? It really seem to hit home for people that they were able to take away. Absolutely we all had a lot of fun. They were great classes. They were full and And you know it was great is we had beginners and people that love to cook all in the same room and we learned from each other and we asked each other questions. It was fantastic and the other little nuggets. That was fun was Exposing people to vegetables that they might not try normally we. We tend to get into these these ruts and and in our routine of eating the same vegetables. So introducing something. A little unusual was really fun and everybody was really curious and I so enjoyed that was. It was a ton of fun so so I hope that we get back very soon too so that we can do those classes again and so you know now. That restaurants are closed indefinitely and people are staying at home. Almost everybody is dusting off their slow cookers and their instant pots. They're pulling out that collection of cookbooks and they're getting back into the kitchen. Which is a fantastic thing for me. It's the thing that I love so I'm thrilled. That people are doing that in so today. Leeann and I want to share some recipes and cooking tips and some reasons why cooking the weight and wellness way is changing lives here and all around the world. Yes I've been hearing that from clients to mary-anne that it's you know we're we're kind of forced into necessity at this point to actually have to dust off those aprons and get some of that cooking equipment and and dust off of skills a little bit absolutely. Yeah and right now. We want to touch on a few reasons. Why cooking the weight and wellness way or cooking and eating that real food at home is so much better for you and your family's health so I mean as a as a Dietitian I like some technical and the logical reasons to avoid cooking with those unfair refined fats and oils and on dishing up nutrition. We have said so many times that it is best to avoid the refined factory fats and oils in those foods and to actually eat for your house. Oh Marianne wants you just at least mention what some of those Refined oils are. You are so right Leah. So some of those really unhealthy refined oils that some people might find are soybean vegetable canola corn and cotton seed oil and nutritional weight and wellness. We recommend avoiding these refined fats and replacing them with real natural beneficial fats. Such as butter olive oil coconut oil avocado oil and even Bacon Grease or Lard Yum. Yeah the kind that our great grandparents used to us as to have a little coffee. Coffee can underneath the same and either Greece. Definitely so go to your cupboard and read the label on each oil and if you are still cooking with these refined damaging fats maybe now is the time to walk over to the garbage can toss out each bottle one by one and say to yourself. I am done using damage factory-made fats and oils. Yeah are a perfect will Maryanne. Let's put a pin in that for a second. We have to go to break the. You're listening to dishing up nutrition and today we're sharing a number of reasons why many people are cooking the weight and wellness way. And we'RE GONNA BE PROVIDING SOME TIPS TO HELP YOU. Make the most of your time in the kitchen. So we'll be right back going back to dishing up nutrition. I've worked in many restaurants and I've worked every station in those restaurants and one of the tricks that I learned was to always have lots of onions celery and carrots chopped because they are often the foundation of so many recipes and I'd like to add them to a lot of the recipes. I'm preparing and always have homemade bone broth to use in soups or anywhere recipe calls for water. That's my little trick to add a little nutrients and I usually add bone broth to add more protein and to make it more nutritious

"Real food so they can feel better I really appreciate the power of nutrition especially when a client tells me I didn't know that getting sugar and processed foods out of my diet would help my pain other clients have told me when they cut out sugar and wine they sleep better and don't wake up several times a night it's the it's the best I personally understand the benefits of eating real food because I've had my own health challenges because to be perfectly honest I did not always eat the best sadly my past included drinking lots and lots of diet doctor pepper and eating a lot of cake you can ask my kids but not anymore because my health is just too precious to me and joining us this morning as our co host is Theresa Wagner who's also a registered and licensed dietitian he's not only busy conducting nutrition appointments with clients on the phone or through zoom video meetings she is also busy at home with three young beautiful children I think about your three adorable children and wonder how are you doing with the zooming from home you know it's going actually pretty well I I I think that because I have kids at home it isn't affecting me in the same way that maybe people are who are in different situations are because we're just busy all the time you know we're not busy running around as much which has been very nice but we're busy just conducting our day to day activities but I do love that I have both parts you know I have the work outside of home sell a little you're not lonely not lonely and it's and you know when I'm joking when I say scared because I love my kids but I think as all parents know parenting is a really difficult job and it's busy and sometimes going to work is a little bit less work perhaps and and I think especially for me because I love my job so because they do have a busy life I understand why our topic today is so important if you are a parent like me most likely the majority of you went through a few years of not getting sufficient sleep from having three kids ages eleven and under I've had many nights consisting of one or two or maybe all three kids needing something in the middle of the night have you ever experienced mommy brain I'm sure you remember that's what that's like I don't think that the memory we forget I think I eat it going through that time you almost like top of half your brain right it's all it's all for your kids your heart is in your children and I wonder how long I mean do you use that excuse L. mom brain right maybe that's a forever excuse well you'll find another one later I'm sure well I'm sure that other people have also experiences are other mothers and probably even some fathers too but we know.

"And in this world wind of multiple health issues. Choose the good news is with some drastic changes to my diet and some key supplements. I was able to get off three prescription medications. So I I guess you could say I know quite a bit about chronic health problems. I also know that what I eat or what I don't eat makes a big difference in how well I manage my the health and my pain Theresa Wagner's joining us this morning. Good Morning Teresa. Good morning and as our co host races also registered in licensed licensed Dietitian. Yes and while. I certainly can't compare what I was going through. Or what what I was kind of dealing within the last couple of a years to Melanie's story as far seriousness. I have also had to learn to manage Well more of a digestive issue that will leave me a bloated. After eating most meals it was frustrating because seemingly the healthier eight the more bloated I would get and really when you're eating well. You shouldn't be uncomfortable after you're eating. That's a sign that something's not going quite right. That's not our normal no no so after much research and lend appropriate food and lifestyle approaches. The issue has actually been resolved and I can eat most anything again but like Melanesia said the correct I choice of the foods I ate made a difference in how well I manage that bloating and then how I got over that situation because ah which joys great pieces wonderful but when you're in pain relief is everything so having that relief is just I i. It's such a great gift it is yes and you don't think about those things either. I mean generally you don't think about you shouldn't think about how you're feeling afterwards. Words new should just go about your day feel energized and be fueled right. Well if you've been listening to dishing up nutrition for a few years. You're well aware that you can you you can use food to help manage any chronic health condition really. My clients offered report that after being on real food eating plan their cholesterol numbers go back into normal range. Their joint pain eases their blood pressure drops. They're diabetic numbers improve and their muscle. Muscle aches and pains. Go Away. The bottom line is this real food eating plan. Can it can work miracles on nutritional at Nutritional Herschel weight and wellness we always say what are we say. Food matters food matters but sadly I think many people pay attention to what they eat in the Howard is they don't pay attention to what they're eating and how it affects not only their body but their brain right and I found that when I work with clients if they're knee pain goes away after they stop up eating sugar and process carbs. They will usually give up. Those sweet treats or those things that caused that pain. They quickly learned that. Only a few bites of a muffin or or their favorite cookies. BEF- will cause that knee pain to return this gives them a really strong reminder. That eating sugar hurts them. I mean it's a physical hurt. They can they can feel if they eat it and feel it and although sugar is sweet and Yummy it is not their friend and what I find rather interesting though is that somehow many people with diabetes or prediabetes don't connect how processed carbs and sugar so foods that come from bags or boxes or those the center aisles of the grocery store how those processes carbs and sugar affect their blood blood sugar numbers or their a one C levels. Sugar is still hurting their body. But it's a different kind of hurt. It's a slow breakdown of their body and their brain rain if a client eats a muffin and they get knee pain. They get that immediate feedback. But if that muffin POPs up their blood sugar to one forty one six st or even two hundred people are not aware of the damage being done to the Kennedys and the their heart. Because they don't feel it. You don't feel high blood edge sugar like you feel knee pain he no. It's really like the the frog in the pot on the stove. Heat it very slowly. The FROG has no realization that their he's being he's being killed slowly rain. That's sort of our situation as we eat. And we incorporate these foods at present over a one hundred million people have prediabetes. They've been told over and over the leading cause of type. Two diabetes is eating excess sugar and flour but they continue to choose muffins and bread over meat vegetables. And good fat. You Know Teresa as I. I was reading the book the Case Ace against sugar by Gary Tabs. I found a little excerpt that I thought was appropriate for this Topic and he says as we become e- ever more insulin. Resistance and glucose intolerant as our blood sugar gets higher along with our insulin levels. As our blood pressure elevates and we get fatter we are more likely to be diagnosed as diabetic and manifest the diseases and conditions that associated with diabetes. These include not not just heart disease by Gout Cancer Alzheimer's and a cluster of Western diseases. But all the conditions typically perceived Lebed as complications of diabetes such as vascular disease lead to strokes dementia and kidney disease retinopathy linus cataracts plaque deposits and the arteries of the heart Leading to heart attacks or the legs and feet leading to amputations neuropathy all of these are are connected to how much sugary eating. Yeah and you think sure. It's just so innocent. It's so sweet and simple and delicious. Yes yeah it's so true that we continue to choose these processed foods over meat vegetables and good fats. And it's very unfortunate that these kinds of foods those processed foods foods are so addicting to most of us. Maybe not everybody but I would say the good majority of us as humans. We see him. hardwired hired to pick sugar laden foods over vegetables and of course the food manufacturers are keenly aware that a product will sell better when sugar was added to it so for example think of pickles even dough pickles. That don't taste sweet. If you go to the grocery store and you just kind of pick up a jar of any major braniff pickles. You'll usually find sugar or high fructose Corn Syrup in the label. Isn't that crazy. Yeah it's crazy because this isn't a sweet food so it makes makes you wonder. Is this how we build brand loyalty. is it that there is just enough sugar. Maybe we don't taste it. There's just enough sugar there to tickle our brain because we know it so addictive And there's other foods like that too. I mean just go through the aisles. We have spaghetti sauce or peanut butter. You know those those those hidden sugars that overtime it all build up and people will say well. It doesn't taste delicious and I to switch to these brands at don't Chagrin. I'm I'm like if you give your your palate two to three weeks. He'll switch over and you don't have those addicted. Pay a taste buds. So there's so many books and excerpts telling people oh how to eat their way back to better health but there are also a lot of mixed messages with unrealistic expectations so often people will say if the excerpts if the experts spurts can't agree. I'll just eat whatever I want right most likely. It's something high in sugar. It's a cop out really really and it's just a really nice excuse for us not really whatever we want right. Well the experts category. So why don't we just have the sugar. Yeah it's a justification honestly that we we can just eat whatever we want to eat because if they can agree. I'll just whistle. Pass the graveyard. Yes well well. You are listening to dishing up nutrition if you have type two diabetes cholesterol issues heart disease or cancer and you currently eat the standard American Diet. The sad diet we recommend recommend upgrading. Your food choices. It begins with the belief that you are worth it. You are worth eating better to better your health allies.

Isn't that crazy. Yeah it's crazy because this isn't a sweet food so it makes makes you wonder. Is this how we build brand loyalty. is it that there is just enough sugar. Maybe we don't taste it. There's just enough sugar there to tickle our brain because we know it so addictive And there's other foods like that too. I mean just go through the aisles. We have spaghetti sauce or peanut butter. You know those those those hidden sugars that overtime it all build up and people will say well. It doesn't taste delicious and I to switch to these brands at don't Chagrin. I'm I'm like if you give your your palate two to three weeks. He'll switch over and you don't have those addicted. Pay a taste buds. So there's so many books and excerpts telling people oh how to eat their way back to better health but there are also a lot of mixed messages with unrealistic expectations so often people will say if the excerpts if the experts spurts can't agree. I'll just eat whatever I want right most likely. It's something high in sugar. It's a cop out really really and it's just a really nice excuse for us not really whatever we want right. Well the experts category. So why don't we just have the sugar. Yeah it's a justification honestly that we we can just eat whatever we want to eat because if they can agree. I'll just whistle. Pass the graveyard. Yes well well. You are listening to dishing up nutrition if you have type two diabetes cholesterol issues heart disease or cancer and you currently eat the standard American Diet. The sad diet we recommend recommend upgrading. Your food choices. It begins with the belief that you are worth it. You are worth eating better to better your health allies.

"A variety of different children every week and many of them need special diets we also you work with children who have digestive and intestinal issues and of course we have a lot of clients who are on the autism spectrum and oftentimes they have really strong likes and dislikes about food. There might be a food that they won't even go near because of the color or the texture and then there are some foods that they want to eat every day at every meal. If you haven't recognized my voice yet I'm cassie weakness. I'm a registered and licensed. Dietitian and I personally have learned a lot about what it takes to shop and cook for kids. Who Have I guess you could say special diets because as many of the longtime listeners know all both of my kids have CEAC disease and they also both have dairy sensitivity and if you're not familiar with CEAC disease in short that is a genetic genetic autoimmune condition where your body starts attacking itself. If you get even just a crumb of gluten so we're really strict about keeping keeping our bodies and our house one hundred percent gluten free and if there's any mom's of middle schoolers out there you know how active that age can be in both of my kids are in sports and they have active social calendars so you can imagine I am always trying to stay on top of the planning and the cooking of the meals to make sure that their nutrient trian level is more than enough for their growing bodies. Yes and we also work with children who are going through that picky eating phase as a parent of three young children. I know that phase really well. These are kids who don't even WANNA try foods. They refuse to eat foods that they once loved and and they tend to drive their parents crazy. Every time they refuse to eat whatever is put in front of them. I am Theresa Wagner. I am also a registered and licensed Dietitian a happy to tell you that this picky eater stager stage is usually done by the time I am. Kids are about six years old. Well at least hopefully your how's Julie. We we say usually gone by six years old but not always and even if the pickiness does subside at six we parents and snow that mealtime can be a real struggle and pretty darned stressful up until that time so today we've invited Jill Castle to join us by phone to discuss strategies that she's found to help kids move through the picky eater phase a bit more smoothly. Joe Castle is a registered Dietitian. She specializes in pediatric nutrition and she's the author of a book titled. Try New food how Oh to help picky eaters taste eat and like new foods yep and for the majority of the show Jill Doe Castle join us to share her knowledge and expertise tease about how to help picky eaters brought in their eating horizons and I love that because I think a Lotta Times as parents. We think we have a pretty good idea of what we should be feeding or at least hopefully we have an idea of what we should be feeding our kids but sometimes it's that how that's really tricky and then near the end of the show our very own cassie. Weena will share her expertise on how to manage feeding kids who are both gluten and dairy sensitive. I'll be asking cassie to share some of her tips tricks and recipes yes and yeah. I know this hour is going to go all fast but we'll try to squeeze all of that. In before we get too far into today's topic though besides picky eaters we we are fully aware that some kids have a condition called avoidance restrictive food intake disorder and this is serious this can interfere with with the child's weight can interfere with their growth even their daily functioning usually kids with avoidance restrictive food intake disorder. Don't eat enough on a daily daily basis to meet their nutritional needs so this is a much more serious eating problem than just being a picky eater and if you have a child with this disorder I feel it's really important to get professional help because I am a Dietitian and a parent of three young children and have many friends with young children. I know Oh that picky. Eating is common in childhood. Statistics show that thirteen to twenty two percent of children between the ages of three and eleven are considered picky eaters. Most young children outgrow their picky eating but a small percentage hang onto that pickiness into adolescence and then some people never really get over it. I know a couple of those adults due to go. If you're a parent listening and you have a picky eater or maybe you're a grandparent of a picky eater. I know that you're going to be able to pick up some strategies from Jill Castle some strategies that she has developed and taught hundreds of parents over the years. Jill is apparent of four children herself so so she was able to try out these strategies on her own family as she developed them so with that Jill. I want to welcome you to dishing up nutrition. We are delighted delighted to have you on the show this morning. Thank you for having me. You are welcome. We are going to really make use of our time and pick your brain here today a day but I just to ease us into the topic. We kind of established that having a child who's a picky eater is fairly common. Can you tell us just how common is it is. In terms of statistics sure well the research is sort of all over the map on you know the percentages in the United States however ever about half of two year olds are considered picky twenty one percent of three to four year olds so that preschooler older toddler preschooler age and about eleven percent of nine year olds and that number is growing with with more and more children in having learning challenges and behavioral challenges. There oftentimes associated with sensory challenges around food as well so that percentages ages is a percentage. That's changing yeah and I would agree with I mean it and this is not research. Basis is just personal experience base. It just seems like that is such a topic of conversations as with parents right now is the struggle with food yes and and if you look at the data to parents perception of picky eating as quite right larger than the actual picky research about twice there's twenty five percent of kids who who are actually picky eaters about fifty percent of parents believe their children are are picky eaters. Okay depends right like Theresa Jason. I WANNA eat Thai food and asparagus spears and yeah it depends on perception yeah and you know you from my experience and my first child was beginning with solid foods. I just assumed he was going to eat well and eat a variety of foods because that's what I do and I was just assuming that because that's what I did that's what he would do to. I wasn't prepared for a picky eater and so I made a ton of mistakes in that process of you know e introducing foods and my reactions and all of those kinds of things and eventually I engaged in those picky eating battles which nobody wins that battle all right Joe that's right and they just experienced a ton and still experience some frustration and that's what I hear from parents is that frustration and that guilt how you know maybe for first time parents or the beginning parents. How do you initially deal with a picky eater so that it doesn't it develop into a long period of time and it's just a quick phase. Yeah I think I think for parents who are just starting out if they can sort of wrap if their head around the fact that this is a very typical thing that will set in at around two years of age and to not be surprised about it but to be prepared for it because I I literally have clients where the parents will talk about how well their babies are are eating and they eat everything and then literally the next week. They're like oh my goodness. They're eating nothing it really can change overnight and when that happens. I think what parents can can do to sort of be prepared for that is to realize that around age neo phobias set set sets in neo phobia is a scientific word for fear of new food and it's just a normal developmental thing that happens and and and what parents can do about that is to not get dissuaded but just to keep sticking with their game plan and and chill and parents should have the game plan for for feeding their kids you know when we're thinking about what we want our children to be when they grow up we think about all different kinds of things related into their education and their intelligence and their social emotional interactions we should be thinking about that as well for their eating habits and in order to grow a healthy. Peter we have to always be exposing them to a variety of different foods even if they're rejecting them or not interested in them so from a parenting perspective respective just realized that you still want to offer a variety of different foods. You don't want to react when your child refuses food. You really just want want to sort of be like okay well. We're not doing that today. We'll figure we'll. We'll try this another day. You know just very upbeat. Positive neutral reaction action to any kind of fear of new food food rejection food jags. Those are other typical signs of Food Jags when a child wants to eat the same thing over and over and over we're again and then I last piece of advice. I always tell parents you know. Don't ask your toddler what they want to eat because they're just going to tell you exactly what they know and our job as parents is to really sort of set that blueprint and the trajectory for food variety and in doing that we need to expose our children to a variety of different foods you know. I think that that is a great game plan that you talked about out but we have to take a break so you're listening to.

"Welcome to dishing up nutrition with license nutritionists and dietitians from nutritional weight and wellness. We explain the connection between what you eat. And how you feel. Stay tuned for practical real life solutions for healthier living through real good nutrition down. Don't welcome to dishing up nutrition today. We're going to talk about what you can do to overcome fatigue. Maybe you're saying I'm tired of being tired all the time. Or have you ever gone to your clinic and complained to your doctor that you want more energy? And then you say, hey, please give me a pill or something to help me. Get over my fatigue. If that shoe, you're not alone or one and a half million people go to their doctor every year with that same complaint. Tired tired tired fatigue may be the result of a medical problem such as a low thyroid function or possibly fibromyalgia or chronic fatigue syndrome. But for the majority of people it is usually the result of poor nutrition. You knew we were going to talk about nutrition. And the lack of sleep feeling tired all the time constantly exhausted and struggling with such morning fatigue that you just want to crawl back into bed. Well, we think that calls fro some very practical solutions that hopefully you can put into your practice right now. So that's what we're going to offer up today ideas. You know, I'm darling vis licensed, nutritionists and certified nutrition specialist, and we have not only just one person here with me today as our co host we have due to. I we have Britney Vincent who until just a few months ago. How long has it now about six months ago? So still getting used to the name change. You know, he used to be Britney Thomas, no Britain has a registered and licensed dietitian. She teaches many of our corporate nutrition classes all over the twin city metro area. She sees individual clients that are Saint Paul and lakeville office in one of our special interest is working with women who have hormonal issues, lots of work. So Britney, you know, while working with clients what have you found to be one of the major causes of fatigue? But yeah, I was one of those people that went to my doctor and said, I am really tired all the time. And at this point, I was only in my early twenties. Uh-huh. That should absolutely not be happening at that age. That's right. So I asked for my thyroid to be tested, my iron in everything was fine. Which is great. But I still didn't have an answer to my fatigue looking back. I know it was to do with. My sleep schedule, which you're going to be talking about. And then my nutrition I just wasn't eating enough of the good things, especially those those healthy fats, so making that change with my diet his made such a huge difference and that making my sleep a priority. So those are two of the major things were in park about. Yes. Yell at people. Stay tuned. Yes. Because we lots of good ideas. And I mean, we see people that complain about their fatigue. All the time we do almost every day. And and today's world we know there's lots of different causes such as adrenal fatigue low thyroid function poi- lifestyle eating habits, and we do know so many people live off of caffeine fast food, all sorts of different convenience foods rock vests, often a Cup of coffee. Lissome sugar in it or that sugary Creamer a Donut a Muffin and when people start their day like that at puts a lot of stress on their body. So the stress from the food coupled with just delete stress over a few years that's gonna lead to their Jane glands being burnt out. And I hear that all the time. Don't you? Yep. You know, they. Yeah. Yeah. But the for from all k-, I'll say at a kit adrenal fatigue. And when that happens, you just feel exhausted all day long. So Britney, you know, you're saying poor eating habits can possibly lead to fatigue. Is that? Right. Absolutely. Yeah. And those poor eating habits, including skipping meals, we hear that alive. Again, living off a caffeine and sugar. I mean, people are really just trying to stay awake throughout the day. But it's becoming a vicious cycle. All that leads to brain and body exhaustion. And we know it's it's a sign of the times you. Supposedly. But that is part of what I do is I help people change those negative lifestyle habits and teach them how to eat a nourishing breakfast. That's gonna give them the energy throughout the day that they need. So you're saying that eating breakfast will help you with your fatigue, and with your energy level. Yes. So we know tell me more. Well, I think that if you're going to change one thing is far as you're eating change your breakfast because I've really sets the tone for the day and eating a balanced breakfast. Yeah. My breakfast varies quite a bit. Oftentimes this leftovers not a huge fan of eggs. So okay yesterday. I had beef and broccoli and a little potato say at a protein, shake the other day. I had a salad for breakfast. And I think getting over the idea that you'd have to eat breakfast foods for breakfast, kind of opens a lot of different doors. But I know. No eating that way. Just gives me lots of energy throughout the day. Well, it's so interesting last night when I was working with by trainer. He said that when he was younger he doesn't do that now. But when he was younger his breakfast used to be like a cereal bar like a neutral grain bar. And a coke. Comment. Yeah. I don't see tons of those little bars because they were eighty calories and fat. And then some parents even send kids out the door with a bar in their hand for Berkeley, easy. So also joining us this morning is Theresa Wagner, traces originated in licensed dietician who teaches many nutrition classes in works individually with clients in Saint Paul, right? That's correct. She's also available to work long distance on the phone either on with Skype or on the phone, and that's kind of we have a lot of podcast listeners. So that's more for those. And I kind of forgot to mention this. But Tricia is a mother of three young children. Yes. So what do you find to be the reason for the pedantic fatigue? Well, I would say kids kids and kids did I say that three times. And of course, lack of sleep. It's a fact of life that parents with small children often experience interrupted sleep. I believe that the best way to stay healthy and prevent fatigue is to make sure that I'm eating healthily and exercising. I think. Lisa hear that from so many parents. Yeah. You know, maybe they're they're able to get one or two hours of sleep a night when their kids are sick or something. Right. Exactly. Or I mean, it doesn't even have to just be sickness. If you know you have those nights where they have nightmares or the wake up and because they're awake. They think you should be awake for visits in the middle of the night. I think one of the things that you just said is in order to stay healthy for yourself. Yes. You have to eat better. That's right. Yep. We have to take care of ourselves. And I know that, you know, especially as a dietitian that foods are very powerful for preventing fatigue. But what it really didn't understand was how choosing the right foods, not only helps with my energy. But also keeps me healthy, especially when life happens like like the kid like we were saying those midnight. Visit that keep you up. Let's do the night. So that's why when I'm working with parents, I focus on helping them develop the habit of eating breakfast. Like we were talking about earlier it might be two or three eggs cooked in butter a slice of dark righto and a few cherry tomatoes with a couple of spears of broccoli, the eggs and vegetables will supply brains with nutrients that we need to energize us as a parent. I try to have the energy I need. So I will be prepared. If for some reason, I need to be up with one of my kids most of the night. So that the next day if I have to work or when we work regardless if you go to work or not. Yeah. So yeah, you can do the work of your day and be effective and be able to think clearly so kids being up all night, that's one cause of Teague for sure absolutely not eating. Well, if another reason so really there are many causes of Tig in, you know, sometimes it's simple as a side effect of medication, right? Or it might be the result of some chronic illness or perhaps. Is your lousy lifestyle in we know that a lot of people have lousy lifestyle habits. So you baby wonder what do I mean by lousy Lau life Tout's lifestyle habits? Well, I think can know where you're going with this one. Dr though, let's ask our listeners to think about their lifestyle habits think about what they've been doing the past week. I often ask my clients right away who drink coffee when you putting in your coffee. Are you drinking just coffee with heavy cream in it? Or are you drinking it with the sugary Creamer going to a coffee shop and getting those foo foo coffee drinks with puns of sugar in them and often times, it's not just coffee with heavy cream? It is the sugar Laden coffee drinks. Yes. 'cause they're delicious. They are before we continue with us. It's already time for our first break. Okay. You are listening to dishing up nutrition brought to you by nutritional weight and wellness. The brief announcement for you today starting the week of April ninth a new nutrition for weight loss series begins. At six convenient locations throughout the twin cities as a dietitian in a teacher of nutrition for weight loss.

Fewer aches and pains, even sleeping better again and just who were three weeks. So this twelve week classes can really be life changing for you so cost six five one six nine nine three four three eight to sign up or go to weight and wellness dot com to find the location, and I'm excited to be teaching starting that week Thursday nights in Saint Paul and people talk about your teaching and they love it. Oh, well, thank you. Of course, I can say that about all of our teachers. We'll be right back. Welcome back to dishing nutrition. You know, today, we're discussing ways you can overcome fatigue. If you want more energy, take a look at your diet and follow some of our simple guidelines, drink lots of water. You know, what t- hydrated body and brain can lead to a tired exhausted person? So we recommend about eight to ten glasses water, and that's going to help you maintain your energy and guideline number to be careful with your caffeine consumption. It's best to limit your caffeine to one or two drinks a day of caffeine. Drinking more than one or two cups may make you anxious irritable fatigued because too much caffeine can cause dehydration and then that

And in today's world, we now there's lots of different causes such as adrenal fatigue low thyroid function poi- lifestyle eating habits, and we do now so many people live off of caffeine fast food all sorts of different kit. Convenience foods breakfast, often a Cup of coffee sugar in it or in that sugary Creamer Donut a Muffin and when people start their day like that at puts a lot of stress on their body. So the stress from the food coupled with just daily stress over a few years that's gonna lead to their Jane glands being burnt out. Hear that all the time. Don't we? Yeah. But the tier okay, I'll say at a kit adrenal fatigue. And when that happens, you just feel exhausted all day long. So Britney, you know, you're saying poor eating habits can possibly lead to fatigue. Is that? Right. Absolutely. Yeah. And those poor eating habits including skipping meals. We hear that aligns again living off a caffeine and sugar. I mean people I really just trying to stay awake throughout the day. But it's becoming a vicious cycle. All that leads to brain and body exhaustion, and we now it's it's a sign of the times. But that is part of what I do is I help people change those negative lifestyle habits and teach them how to eat a nourishing breakfast. That's going to give them the energy throughout the day. But they need. So you're saying that eating breakfast will help you with your fatigue, and with your energy level. Yes. So. Tell me more. Well, I think that if you're going to change one thing as far as you're eating change your breakfast because I really sets the tone for the day and eating a balanced breakfast. My breakfast varies quite a bit. Oftentimes, it's just leftovers not a huge fan of eggs. So okay yesterday. I had beef and broccoli and a little potato say at a protein, shake the other day. I had a salad for breakfast. And I think getting over the idea that you have to eat breakfast foods for breakfast and opens a lot of different doors. But I know eating that way just gives me lots of energy throughout the day. Well, it's so interesting last night when I was working with my trainer he said that when he was younger he doesn't do that now. But when he was younger his breakfast used to be like a cereal bar like neutral grain bar. And a coke. Comment. Yeah. See tons of those little bars because they were eighty calories and fat. And then some parents even send kids out the door with the bar in their hand for Bernie. Yeah. So also joining us this morning as Theresa Wagner, traces, a registered and licensed dietician who teaches many nutrition classes in works individually with clients in Saint Paul, right? That's correct. She's also available to work long distance on the phone either on with Skype or on the phone, and that's kind of we have a lot of podcast listeners. So that's more for those. And I kind of forgot to mention this. But Tricia is mother of three young children. Yes. So what do you find to be the reason for the democrat fatigue? Well, I would say kids kids kid did I say that three times. And of course, lack of sleep. It's a fact of life that parents with small children often experience interrupted sleep. So I believe that the best way to stay healthy and prevent fatigue is to make sure that I'm eating healthily and exercising. I think Theresa I hear that from so many parents. Yeah. You know, maybe they're they're able to get one or two hours of sleep a night when their kids are sick or something. Right. Exactly. Or I mean, it doesn't even have to just be sickness. You know, you have those nice where they have nightmares or the wake up and because they're awake. They think you should be awake. For visits in the middle of the night. I think one of the things that you just said is it ordered a stay healthy for yourself. Yes. You have to eat better. That's right. We have to take care of ourselves. And I know that, you know, especially as a dietitian that foods are very powerful for preventing fatigue. But what it really did understand was how chosing the right foods, not only helps with my energy. But also keeps me healthy, especially when life happens like like a kid like we were saying, you were those midnight visits that keep you up most of the night. So that's why when I'm working with parents, I focus on helping them develop the habit of eating breakfast. Like we were talking about earlier it might be two or three eggs cooked in butter a slice of dark righto and a few cherry tomatoes with a couple of spears of broccoli, the eggs and vegetables will supplier brains with the nutrients that we need to energize us as a parent. I try to have the energy I need. So I will be prepared. If for some reason, I need to be up with one of my kids must the night. So that the next day if I have to work, or when we work, regardless if you go to work or not, yes, you can do the work of your day and be affective and be able to think clearly so kids being up all night that's one positive Teague for sure absolutely not eating. Well, if another reason so really there are many causes of pig in, you know, sometimes it's as simple as a side effect of a medication right, or it might be the result of some chronic illness or perhaps. It is your lousy lifestyle. And we know that a lot of people have lousy lifestyle habits. So you baby wondered what do I mean by lousy life talks lifestyle habits? Well, I think you know, where you're going with Dr. Let's ask our listeners to think about their lifestyle habits. Think about what they've been doing the past week. I often ask my clients right away who drink coffee. What are you putting in your coffee? Are you drinking just coffee with heavy cream in it? Or are you drinking it with the sugary Creamer going to a coffee shop and getting those foo foo coffee drinks with tons of sugar in them. And often times it's not just coffee with heavy cream. It's it is the sugar Laden coffee drinks. Yes. Because they're delicious. They are now before we continue with.
