Episode 284: Eggplant, Cold Noodle Bowls, and Kids

Are apples better than an expensive probiotic? Probably.

This week, Joy welcomes guest hone Jackie Botto!

In food news this week, we compare notes on an article in the Atlantic called The Best Probiotics. Trust us, click on the apple video in the article. Here’s the link.

In our What’s for Dinner segment, we talked all about eggplant. It’s worth turning the oven on!

In How’d You Make That? Jackie describes the Asian-inspired cold noodle bowls she can’t get enough of this summer. (Here’s one on Joy’s to-make list.)

With Marisa and her new kiddos on our minds, Jackie talks about the pleasures and challenges of feeing a little one–she’s got the heart of a food lover and picky eater in the house.

And finally, in What We’re Loving, it’s Trader Joe’s sauces–specifically the amba, zhoug, and toum.
