“Soil Health & Nutrition” with Jenny Stuchell
Episode 3: “Soil Health & Nutrition” with Jenny Stuchell
- Jenny’s road to natural health began at a young age when she was experiencing pain in her abdomen, which was believed to be related to her ovaries. After expensive testing and no results, she finally discovered that she’s lactose intolerant. This kicked off her interest in nutrition and health, which she later studied at Gonzaga University.
- Jenny first began using her nutritional knowledge when training her fellow tri-athletes. When her grandmother was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, she decided to shift her career focus entirely to food and nutrition.
- Many people are familiar with the health benefits of eating organic foods vs. conventionally raised foods (primarily being the reduced exposure to harmful pesticides). However, most people don’t have much information regarding the actual health of the food they’re eating in regards to the food’s nutritional density. Jenny explains how the various nutrients in the soil depend on the healthy bacteria in the soil for absorption. The process of building healthy, living soil can have tremendous health benefits for the food we eat.
- Even if you think you’re feeling “pretty good” when it comes to things like mental clarity and energy, you may not know just how good you can feel until you make some positive changes to your life. This doesn’t just pertain to food, but food is an excellent area of health to consider.
