Episode 23: How Nutrition Deficiencies Happen, Even When You’re Doing Everything ‘Right’

Even if we cultivate regular healthy habits and eat nutrient-dense foods, there may be times in our lives when nutrition deficiencies develop. Just as a single diet or style of eating doesn’t work for everyone on the planet, one diet (or set of habits) may not be optimal for each stage of our lives. Health isn’t a passive process; we often need to recalibrate based on age, life stages, short-term or chronic illnesses, lifestyle habits, or temporary changes that impact our wellbeing.

Today’s topic is a biggie and we don’t believe it’s ever been explained quite like we’re doing in this episode. Josh’s analogies shine bright as we dive into the topic of health and nutrition deficiencies. This one is going to be enlightening!

Geeta Sakhuja

Geeta joined the Culinary Nutrition Expert Program in 2018 while also working full-time as an account executive at a business-to-business marketing agency. Though she wasn’t 100% sure what she’d end up doing when she graduated, she knew that she was in the right place. After completing the program, Geeta gravitated toward what had brought her to this field in the first place: cooking classes. She teaches gluten-free and dairy-free Indian cooking masterclasses online, which are in high demand! Many of her students are also fellow Culinary Nutrition Experts, who rave about her recipes as well as her knowledge of spices and cooking techniques.
