Episode 16: In Defense of Rice + Beans with Dr. Elizabeth Ryan

Dr. Elizabeth Ryan is a leading microbiome researcher from Colorado State University. Her research focuses on how the diet influences the microbiome, some work includes studying rice and legumes and the impact they have on the microbiomes of colorectal cancer patients. Our conversation covers so much information from the importance of fiber intake, to the discussion of grain free diets, and the places that microbiome research is going that could radically alter our understanding of health. Listen to this episode and get a great understanding of what is going on inside of our guts and how our microbiomes can help us to be resilient if they are treated right!

We are thrilled that Dr. Ryan will be joining us at The Gut Check Summit and sharing her expansive understanding of this amazing universe inside of us.
