From Stool Labs to Clean Slates: Understanding Gluten's Impact on Health

Welcome back to the Stronger Bones Lifestyle Podcast. In this empowering episode 57, host Debi is honored to have guest Peggy Curry, a formidable advocate for healthy eating, delve into the critical role of food as medicine for keeping bones strong and bodies thriving.

Peggy, a seasoned educator and food entrepreneur, engages in a candid conversation with Debi about the far-reaching impact of dietary choices on preteens and the importance of a gluten-free lifestyle. From sharing her personal battles with osteopenia and early menopause to the transformative journey of creating Curry Girls Kitchen with her daughter, Peggy’s wealth of experience cascades through this episode.
