Dr. Colin Zhu joins us to discuss Food as Medicine. We know that there is very little nutritional training as part of most medical schools, so Dr. Zhu got curious and trained as a chef and a health coach at the Natural Gourmet Institute for Health & Culinary Arts and the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. He tells us that the concept of culinary medicine “is blending the art of food with the science of nutrition.” How do we apply this theory? Why is it important? How does it affect human health? Dr. Zhu shares remarkable information on this topic in today’s podcast.
