In today’s episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast we talk with Dr. Jennifer Singh on the truth about dairy. There are many MOOO-sconceptions about dairy that have been ingrained in us since we were small children. “A cup of milk with every meal”, “Milk does a body good” and “Got Milk” ads have glorified the dairy industry, but it has been at a price. Our health is declining here in North America and as we talk about during this show, the absence of dairy can make a huge impact on our quality of life.
Jennifer Singh is a doctor, wannabe-chef, wife and mom who is passionate about sharing the power of a plant-based diet and healthy lifestyle. Board-certified in both Internal Medicine and Pediatrics, she is well-acquainted with the dismal health results of the Standard American Lifestyle. Dr. Jennifer Singh is an Assistant Professor at the LSU Health Science Center in Shreveport School of Allied Health, and an Associate Adjunct Professor at the University of North Texas-Fort Worth School of Health Professions, where she teaches others about Lifestyle Medicine in the Graduate Certificate Program.
Dr. Jennifer Singh uses her medical knowledge, cooking skills, and fifteen years of professional teaching & lecturing experience in medical education to teach groups of all sizes and backgrounds about the life-changing power of plant-based nutrition and lifestyle. She owns Singh Wellness, a Lifestyle Medicine coaching practice in Shreveport. By providing knowledge and support to help clients change their habits, she continues to be amazed by the health results that people can achieve. When not teaching, she makes sure she has no spare time by bouncing between homeschooling her kids, walking the dog, cooking and biking with her family, reading, blogging, and traveling.
