A note to our dear listeners: this episode was recorded before the COVID-19 pandemic changed, well, everything. We’re sharing it today in the hopes that it offers a little break to the endless news cycle and adds some levity to a time when it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. Stay safe, stay home, and stay well, all. We love you!
If you have ever been curious about the best time to have breakfast or dinner, or perhaps wondered about the effect food can have on your psyche, this show will be a revelation. Dr. Michael Roizen, the chief wellness officer at the Cleveland Clinic, joins us to talk about a book he co-authored called What to Eat When, which features the latest research on how food can work with our biological clocks to optimize health.
Roizen seriously made us think about, well, what we eat … and when. Trust us when we say that this episode will truly give you food for thought. (You know we had to!)
