This month, we take you to the beaches of Detroit Lakes, in the kitchen of Barb and Tom Thomsen, to introduce you to our newest cuisine contributor, Shantel Fagerholt. She's an at-home chef who practices a unique diet approach called The Plant Paradox. Living a lectin-free lifestyle, founded by Dr. Steven Gundry, Fagerholt gives us the rundown on how lectin can adversely affect our gut and our mind. She offers simple advice on how to get started and serves up her go-to salad recipe that's both healthy and tasty.
