In the final episode of my series on nutrition, I’m speaking with Caroll Lee about the joy of eating and using food as preventative medicine. Caroll is a certified health coach and founder of Provenance Meals.  Each episode of this special series has provided me with at least one takeaway that I have carried over into my daily life. I hope it has been just as useful for you.  

Today, Caroll talks about her lifelong struggle with her diet. From a very young age, she suffered from stomach pains and it wasn’t until she first became pregnant and started to eat a more healthy diet that she began to correlate the diet with feeling better.  After making that connection and wanting a career change, Caroll decided to go back to school to study nutrition.


Show Highlights 

  • Packaged foods are becoming more refined and more processed.
  • Unhealthy eating can lead to chronic inflammation, which can lead to many lifestyle diseases.
  • Why you should cut out processed foods and eat whole foods instead.
  • Grocery shopping tips for healthy eating: at grocery stores, shop along the perimeter where the real foods are and avoid the aisles.
  • Examine why you are eating--are you actually hungry or just bored?
  • You don’t have to focus entirely on calorie count, look at portion size.
  • Try to keep your ratio to 80% real food, 20% processed/refined.


“I don't mean to put pressure on people, but we have to start changing our lifestyle. We have to start changing what we eat because it really, really matters and it really matters to the people we love.”  Caroll Lee
