‘This Podcast is Delicious’ / Food Prescriptions

August 5, 2022

Today we have a special food themed episode! First, the guys discuss Ali’s other podcast, ‘This Podcast is Delicious’ with Ali’s co-host Marco Timpano (0:52). They discuss Marco’s background and how he ended up podcasting. They then discuss how Ali and Marco met and the genesis for their podcast. They discuss how it used to be called ‘Eat and Drink’ and how it had been recently rebranded as ‘This Podcast is Delicious’.  Marco sticks around for the medical topic as the guys discuss physicians prescribing food to patients (35:46). Asif discusses the broader concept of ‘social prescribing’ which originated in the UK. He discusses the different types of food prescribing and some studies that have examined its effectiveness. The guys then discuss some potentially ethical issues associated with food prescribing. Finally they conclude with some thoughts on how medicine can incorporate food prescribing, such as so called ‘culinary medicine’ curricula.
