Discover the nuances of clean eating, how to reset your taste buds, and all the ways essential amino acids keep your body functioning.

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, my guest is a TV chef, holistic nutritionist, and award-winning entrepreneur and inventor with more than 25 years of experience in the food industry. Mareya Ibrahim hosts the popular Facebook Live show “The Real Dish” and the “Recipes for Your Best Life” podcast. She also founded Grow Green Industries and co-invented the patented eatCleaner line of products.

She believes in food flexibility while still focusing on a core system that works, “where you’re exercising your metabolism, you’re flexing your taste buds, you’re exploring a variety of different macronutrients and having fun with food,” she says.

Mareya and I talk about her new book, “Eat Like You Give a Fork: The Real Dish on Eating to Thrive,” the nuances of clean eating, and why grains aren’t always the enemy.

“At the end of the day, I think what’s really important is that we focus on the quality of the food that we’re getting and that we eat with intention,” Mareya says.

Enjoy the show!
