She lives in the mountains of North Carolina with her husband, T.C., and their two children, Owen and June. Owen has severe food allergies and June has cystic fibrosis, and Webb uses diet as part of an integrative approach in caring for her children.

The Art and Mastery of Meal Planning and Prep

When Leah Webb learned that her son had severe food allergies and that her daughter had cystic fibrosis, she knew that a healthy diet would play an integral part of her children’s care. But learning to get organized in the kitchen without going crazy and still having time for other things felt like an impossible task. Over the course of three years, Webb learned to master the art of meal planning and prep through the use of bulk shopping, freezing foods, planning ahead, and getting organized. Her techniques are effective enough for those needing to follow the strictest of diets, but easy enough for those who don’t necessarily love to cook or plan ahead, but also understand the necessity of home-cooked meals. Webb provides participants with an overview of the techniques that have enabled her to spend a minimal amount of time in the kitchen while serving her family a nearly 100 percent made-from-scratch diet. Home-cooked breakfasts, snacks, lunches, and dinners are possible because of the techniques she shares. Webb shows how to get organized, get cooking, and stay sane! Bring questions for the 20-minute Q&A at the end of the talk.

Belly Biochemistry

The microbial population of the digestive tract considerably influences proper immune response. Our bodies are designed to rely on our own physiological mechanisms, paired with the intricate action of bacteria and other microbiota, to support digestion and immunity. Leah Webb explains the ins and outs of digestion in an easy-to-understand approach, and she sheds light on the relationship between immunity, disease, microbiota, and diet. She explains what factors can interfere with healthy digestion, and she includes dietary strategies to better support immunity. Learn how avoiding grains and sugar can support a healthy digestive system (and thus a healthy immune response). Webb also discusses the ways in which the gut is connected to the brain, a relationship that directly impacts our emotions, physiological responses, and ability to feel our best.
