Live Happy, Eat Dirty is a podcast full of quick and dirty health and diet ideas for real people, hosted by me – Kate Harrison. Fed up with feeling guilty because you can’t be 100% perfect all the time? Live happy and eat dirty instead! In this practical and positive podcast, discover why cheese is our kind of superfood, what your gut can tell you about how to live a good life, and how part-time diets are the secret to staying in great shape for life. Hear guilty-free ideas and down to earth interviews by happily imperfect health author Kate Harrison, who loves to have her cake and eat it. In Live Happy, Eat Dirty, we say down with eating clean or feeling bad because you never want to try a triathlon. Instead, live the dirty life – enjoyable, laid back but balanced. We talk about food, diet in its broadest sense, positive mental health, gut science, intermittent fasting, 5:2 and strategies for a long and happy life. If you loathe detoxes and clean eating, but love evidence-based tips and eating well – you’re in the right place. Because you can be slim without giving up cheese, bread OR wine. You can be fit without ever trying a triathlon. And you can enjoy your life without having to be a saint.

Bread has had such a bad press lately – we talk to a campaigning baker who has found ways to enjoy her own produce despite a sensitivity to wheat. Discover the secrets of good bread and why it has a place in your diet. 

If you’re boggled by bread or afraid of Big Bad Gluten, this podcast is a must-listen. Because bread and other grains can form a brilliant part of a healthy diet for most of us. 

In this interview with micro-baker Frances Reid, we learn:

  • Why time is the most important ingredient when it comes to great bread;
  • How Frances swapped working for a charity for baking dozens of loaves in her ordinary oven;
  • How she’s managed her own sensitivities so she can still enjoy her own creations.
  • sourdough croissants

 And if you want to try baking your own, learn

  • Why it’s almost impossible to kill off your starter;
  • Why a loaf will change depending on where in your home you let it rise;
  • How sourdough croissants are a labour of love.

Plus how to find good bread if you don’t have time to bake your own. And Kate talks about her own experiments with sourdough baking – and the tips she includes in The Dirty Diet: Ditch the Guilt, Love your Food.

Fed up with over-hyped and overpriced ‘superfoods’? In the second episode of our brand new podcast, we  look at some unexpected new superfood candidates, including smelly cheese.

 

In the second episode of Live Happy Eat Dirty – we celebrate the positive steps we can take to be healthy, happy and in good shape.   And we preview the new book, The Dirty Diet – ditch the guilt, love your food. 

Featuring Kate Harrison and  dietitian Helen Phadnis – also known as NomNomNerd!

Including:

  • Gorgonzola or goji berries – which is the real superfood?
  • Why flapjacks and fruit crumble are part of a healthy diet….
  • And hooray for crunchy-munchy foods and coffee!  

We also talk about the idea of ‘smart harvesting’ and how the microbes in our gut explain why some of us put more weight on than others.

And why The Dirty Diet was almost called The Cheese and Pickle diet…

For lots more information about the effect of microbes on your health and weight, we really recommend the Gut Microbiota for Health website.
