In this episode, we talk about food labels and marketing claims to uncover the truth about the nutritional value of various food sources. We examine the research and data behind grass-fed beef, pastured eggs, wild-caught salmon, and organic produce to determine whether these premium options are worth the extra cost and attention.

By the end of our discussion, you’ll understand how to make informed decisions about your food choices and focus on what truly matters for your health.

Topics include:
• The negligible differences in omega-3 and omega-6 content between grass-fed and grain-fed beef
• Why pastured eggs may not always be nutritionally superior to store-bought eggs
• The surprising truth about contaminants in wild-caught versus farmed salmon
• How the nutritional characteristics of organic and conventional produce compare
• Why a diverse, whole-foods-based diet is more important than focusing on individual food sources
