This week, beer nutrition, back to school tips, life-hacking, and more

MP900314313[1]You can easily look up the nutrient content of foods these days. But how much of that potassium, or iron, or whatever are you actually absorbing? In this week’s show, I talk about all the many (!) things that affect nutrient absorption and what you should being doing about it.

It’s a little harder to look up the nutrient content of your favorite micro (or home) brew but here are some surprising nutrition facts about beer.

Kara Rota of the Clever Cookstr podcast was my guest on last week’s show. Listen in on Kara’s conversation with Chef Scott Liebfried about blending culinary art and nutrition science.

And of course the kids are heading back to school. Here’s some new research on how physical activity can help boost academic performance.  You’ll find lots more Back to School tips–everything from packing healthy lunches to making friends to tackling homework at QDT’s Back to School Portal.
