Episode 120: Pamela Salzman on the Italian-Inspired Art of Cooking Clean, Nutritious, and Delicious Meals

I grew up in an Italian family in an Italian neighborhood in New Jersey and my dad, brother and aunt are all classically trained French chefs, which means that I can be a bit of a food snob. I believe that the best meals don’t have to require hours of preparation, they just have to be made of simple, clean ingredients. Thank
s to big agriculture, high quality food can be hard to come by here in the States. But even though the veggies, bread, and cheese available to us pale in comparison to the foods available in Italy, exercising a little mindfulness in the grocery store and kitchen can go a long way. 

In this episode of Nateurious, you’ll learn from a fellow Italian and expert on quick, nutritious cooking, Pamela Salzman. With a popular blog, two cookbooks, online cooking classes, and a 4-week plant-based bootcamp, Pamela has shown that healthy meals can be made in just 30 minutes, so long as you use the proper ingredients and cookware.

Many people don’t realize the amount of toxins present in their daily diets. By making some simple changes—like opting for tomatoes packaged in glass jars instead of aluminum cans, using unrefined oils, and steering clear of non-stick pans—you can dramatically reduce your exposure to heavy metals. Not only will this improve your overall health, it will give you youthful, glowing skin (an absolute must for my Agent Nateur women).

Needless to say, this episode is guaranteed to change the way you think about healthy eating. Tune in to learn all about Pamela’s new book, Quicker Than Quick, her efficient approach to making family meals, the secret to purchasing clean ingredients without breaking the bank, key ways to streamline the way you cook, and more.
