Real Health Conversations
Real Health Conversations (Formerly Low-Carb Conversations) is hosted by Holly Jean Mullen, FNTP and features a variety of voices in the world of modern nutrition and health science, expressing many different points of view.

Welcome to Real Health Conversations with Leah Williamson and Holly Jean Mullen, Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioners.

This week Leah and Holly take a deeper look into the question “Can I eat Carrots and Beetroot on Keto – are they too high in carbs/sugar?”

This, and similar questions along the lines of what can I/can’t I eat, are common when starting any new diet or exploring new eating habits. However, instead of worrying about the do’s and don’ts, perhaps a better question is not about the WHAT, but the WHY…

In this episode, Leah and Holly get started by looking at this question from a clinical perspective and chat a about nutrients – Nutrients are essential for our energy – life and growth, found in the foods we digest  and we often think about our Macronutrients – Protein, Carbs and Fats.  What we tend to not pay as much attention to is our micronutrients which are our vitamins and minerals. We (humans) can’t make vitamins and minerals and must obtain them through our food.
