Every year, the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics hosts FNCE, the Food & Nutrition Conference and Expo. This year it was in Nashville, and we were there to soak in the music, southern charm, and the latest food trends and nutrition news. From vegetarian sources of protein (i.e. pasta made with beans!) to probiotics to sprouted grains and seeds, the themes of this year's conference were simple, wholesome, and plant based. Trends tracker and the voice behind the blog, Nutrition Unplugged, Janet Helm, MS, RD, joins us on the show to discuss the latest food news and to chat about some of the lectures we attended. David Katz, MD shed light on the world's "best" diet and celebrity chef, Marcus Samuellson talked about eating with a spiritual compass. Tune in to this week's show for so much more.

It tastes like honey !You can snack on Ambrosia apples out of hand or use them in a variety of recipes --- everything from Autumn Egg Salad and Apple, Bacon and Maple Syrup Flatbread Pizza to luscious crisps. On this week's show, Liz travels to Wenatchee, WA to learn how Ambrosia apples are grown, hand picked, and shipped to supermarkets across the U.S. (and the world!).
