Sustainable Dish Podcast

My co-host James Connolly turns the tables on the host of the Food and Faith podcast, Derrick Weston after James was a guest on Food and Faith. 

While it seems on the surface that religion may not relate to food and sustainability, Derrick argues that this couldn’t be further from the truth. The bible was written in the midst of an agrarian society with many of the lessons centering around food and feeding people.

Derrick finds that food is often the simplest entry point to difficult conversations. Everyone eats so it is one of the few things that unifies everyone in the world. Listen in as James and Derrick tackle some of the challenging subjects that come up around food and social justice.

Melissa Urban is back on the podcast to talk about the new Plant-Based Whole30. Most of you know the Whole30 as a real-food 30-day challenge that helps you discover the foods that work best for your body. 

Now, Melissa and her team have thoughtfully created a framework to help people that are plant-based, healthfully self-experiment with this way of eating - which I fully support.

This episode is sponsored by Levels, a continuous glucose monitor that gives you individualized insight into your metabolism. This is a tool I personally use and recommend to people I work with. It’s helped me figure out what foods spike my blood sugar and which ones keep me level. I can also see how certain tricks like walks after a meal affect my body. Right now Levels has a waiting list of over 150,000 but they are allowing my listeners to skip the line if they go to sustainabledish.com/levels and sign up. Try it out to see how the food you eat affects your metabolism. This is a must-have tool for anyone interested in personalizing their nutrition.
