The recent NY Times bestseller, The Plant Paradox, has brought up the question of whether certain plant foods, including nightshades and legumes, are inflammatory and toxic. In this segment, Tony and I review some key points from the book and whether we REALLY need to avoid the foods targeted in this book.

Next, I have my very special guest Sachi Kato, who is a vegan chef, photographer and co-author of The One Peaceful World Cookbook. Sachi works as a macrobiotic chef and instructor, which fulfills her passion for sharing nurturing food.  Listen in as we discuss what the macrobiotic diet philosophy is, how to make shifts towards a plant-based lifestyle, and how you too can bring a happy atmosphere into your kitchen.
