First Segment: Trending Topics (04:48 – 24:55):Are calcium supplements helping or harming your health?
Calcium is thought of as the go-to supplement for people wanting to ward off osteoporosis, but a recent study linked calcium supplements to precancerous colon growths. Is this a valid warning, and are there other problems? Janet and Emily discuss whether to take these supplements, and how the calcium you get needs a few helpers to be effective!
Second Segment: Audience Questions (26:25 – 35:49)
“I struggle with raging PMS. Is there anything that can help?”
For the longest time, PMS wasn’t considered by physicians to be a real problem, and many women had to endure the challenges without being taken seriously. But PMS is very real, and there are some very real solutions to help deal with its effects. No woman should have to suffer through it unaided! Janet and Emily bring a lot of expertise to this topic, and give a great list of supplements that will help restore hormone balance.
Recipe (36:49 – 40:27):Different Ways to Prepare Asparagus
Snap woody end off each asparagus spear. Coat in avocado oil and salt and one clove of garlic minced through a press (you can keep it simple with just oil and salt!).
Preheat the oven to 400 Degrees; I usually do this when the rest of my meal is almost done cooking and just needing finishing touches. Put the asparagus spread out in a baking dish and bake for 10 to 15 minutes depending on the thickness of each spear; they’ll be ready when slightly wilted.
Alternatively, when you’re barbecuing, throw them on until slightly wilted near the end of cooking whatever else you are having for dinner!
