In episode 77 of ExtraVirgin Food & Travel Podcast, Natascha Mirosch talks with
"Gentle activist" and Author of "Low Tox Food, How to Shop, Cook, Swap, Save and Eat for a Healthy Planet," Alexx Stuart.
They discuss how dietary advice (including the food pyramid model) was hijacked and how many farmers came to depend on unsustainable farming methods. But they also look at the positive changes that are undoing those decades of misinformation and unhealthy growing practices - from regenerative farming to minimising waste and how each one of us can play a part by making even the smallest of changes to how we think about food. What are the best foods to put in your shopping basket for your health and for the planet? Is it necessary to cut out meat or go organic - just a few of the questions Natascha and Alexx discuss.
