We get to meet Nikki Golly who’s focus on micro nutrients gives her a detailed perspective on the essentials of good nutrition. Her chat with Greg is a chance to break down the descriptions of some important food terms in today’s vocabulary and bring to light some very key details on the tiniest, but very powerful ingredients.
Listen in and learn about:
- The day she walked into a nutrition store that directed her into the world of selling supplements
- How and why she transitioned to nutrition and becoming a micro-nutrient coach

- How our soils changed after WWII
- The definition of ‘foodstuffs’ and her surprise when she found out about it
- Her definition of real food and the difference between – is a plant, from a plant, and in a plant
- Phyto-nutrients and phyto-chemicals, where they come from and how we are just starting to learn how important they are

- Why she loves the Tower Garden as a small space gardening option that help provide more nutrients
