PMR Episode 124 Feature Image


The word "cider" has it's roots in the ancient hebrew word sekar, or "strong drink" and as apples moved from the mountains of Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan, the "strong drink" made from the fermented juice of apples followed.

Cider was brought to America by the pilgrims, and for many years, cider was the beverage of choice for peasants and presidents alike. During the early part of the 19th century however, prohibitionists turned their ire towards cider, smashing kegs and uprooting orchards.

For decades, American cider production was almost nonexistent, but now we are on the cusp of a veritable cider boom. More and more people are looking for alternatives to beer, and as a naturally gluten free product, cider is happy to oblige.

On today's show, we discuss the nature of today's cider business with Robert and David Cordtz, the father and son team behind the Sonoma Cider Company.

Sonoma Ciders feature bold flavors like sarsaparilla vanilla and Kentucky bourbon and in our conversation we discuss...

  • How the pair got into the cider business.
  • Their process for developing new flavors.
  • How hundreds of pounds of habanero peppers made their way into one of their limited runs.
  • Why they think their particular brand of uncompromising, craft ciders appeal to the palates of foodies and health fanatics alike.

While some people are satisfied with the grain-fed, CAFO raised, industrial meat that is passed off as beef in much of our restaurants and grocery stores, there is a growing demand for something different.

In the past, that "something different" might have taken the form of tracking down a local farmer to arrange for the purchase of a "cow share", a whole, half, or quarter steer that required significant freezer space and a big investment.

While this, or better yet, growing your own, likely represents the gold standard for grass-fed beef acquisition, many people don't live in agricultural areas, so access is limited. And even if you do live in a rural part of the country that hosts large domestic herbivores, there's no guarantee that the farmer is following grass-fed and grass-finishing standards, or that he or she will even sell to you.

Thanks to the internet however we now have a third option, from the comfort of our own home, we can purchase carefully selected grass-fed and grass-finished meats and have them delivered right to our door.

One such service is getbutcherbox.com, a new type of meat delivery service that started off as a wildly successful Kickstarter campaign and is now shipping customers a new, carefully curated box of meat, steaks, bacon, short ribs, and the like, each and every month.

Today on Paleo Radio bites we're joined by Michael Salguero CEO of Butcher Box, to find out more about his company, the meats, and some of his favorite recipes.

PMR Episode 123 Feature Image


Everybody knows that mom does it best; whether it's her homemade lasagna, chocolate chip cookies, apple pie, or if you're Tessemae Vetter, a signature salad dressing.

As the mom of 3 active boys, Tessemae had to figure out a way to get her kids to eat their veggies. She succeeded by whipping up a simple combination of lemon juice, olive oil, mustard, and salt. Tessemae's dressing was not only a hit with her own kids, there are even instances of salad dressing theft perpetrated by her son's friends.

Hearing this story alone would be well worth your time, but what comes next is the real kicker. After years of eating the house dressing, Tessemae's oldest son Greg decided that there really was something special about that signature blend. With a bit of stage craft, Greg convinced Whole Foods, and then his mom to go into business bottling the family recipe and the rest, as they say, is history.

Today we're joined by Tessemae's all natural co-founder, Greg Vetter.

CLICK HERE for the full transcript

In our conversation we discuss:

  • His experiences as a college athlete.
  • The lightening bolt of inspiration that convinced him that he needed to quit his job and start Tessemae's.
  • How he used a Tupperware of romaine lettuce to convince Whole Foods to carry their product.
  • How he, his pregnant wife, his mom, and his brothers built the business over the course of many late nights and weekends.
  • What it's like now to be running a multi-million dollar company.

PMR Episode 222 Feature Image


If you really want to know why the Paleo lifestyle works so well in combating chronic disease, reversing the aging process, and turning everyday people into fat burning beasts, you'll inevitably encounter a concept called Evolutionary Mismatch. An evolutionary mismatch occurs when our body, a collection of trillions of cells beautifully programmed by millions of years of evolution, encounters something completely unexpected and descends into chaos. In the past evolutionary mismatches arose from natural events, cataclysms like super volcanoes and asteroid impacts, as well as cyclical climate changes, but these mismatches ultimately spurned new evolutions and adaptations. Unfortunately for us modern humans, the radical technological and societal changes that we have initiated have transformed our world, and have changed so many things so quickly that our bodies just can't keep up, and evolutionary mismatches abound.

Eating processed food like substances instead of whole foods is a mismatch. Sitting down all day staring at a computer screen instead of experiencing dynamic movement within mother nature is a mismatch. Replacing our intimate tribal relationships of community and family with text messages is an evolutionary mismatch, and as the process of evolution and natural selection runs its course, millions of us suffer and die from chronic disease and millions more live in states of dis-health. But all hope is not lost Paleo Nation, as someone listening to this podcast and living the Paleo lifestyle, you are part of the solution, and now more than ever, there are resources at your disposal that can help you manage the evolutionary mismatches in your life.

There are books, blogs, podcasts, and even events dedicated to the practice of ancestral health. Today we'll be talking to two proponents to the ancestral health model. J. Brett Smith and Aaron Blaisdell. Both of these guys are so passionate about the subject that they've dedicated countless hours towards organizing one of the premier Paleo events of the year. The Ancestral Health Symposium.

CLICK HERE for the full transcript

In This Episode We Discuss:

  • What inspired Aaron to create the Ancestral Health Symposium.
  • How J.Brett Smith went from being an AHS attendee to becoming their Program Chair.
  • Favorite moments from past years events.
  • The unforeseen consequences that caused the cancellation of AHS 15.
  • Their thoughts about the mainstreaming of Paleo.
  • The role of AHS and other events in the evolution of Ancestral Health.
  • What we can look forward to at this years event which will be taking place at the University of Colorado Boulder campus August 11th to the 13th.

When we're kids, we're told to wash our hands, taught to keep our clothes clean, and to never eat something that has dirt on it. But what if all that sanitation has side effects? 

Despite the fact that we're living in what is arguably the most disinfectant happy society to ever walk the face of the earth, many of us still suffer from chronic health conditions, many of which start in the gut. Perhaps all that bacteria, all that dirt, was doing something good for us. Maybe it's time to start getting back to our roots by eating food, and dirt, the way nature intended?

On today's show, we're joined by one of the most vocal proponents of eating dirty, Dr. Josh Axe, author of the brand new book, Eat Dirt: Why Leaky Gut May Be the Root Cause of Your Health Problems and 5 Surprising Steps to Cure it.

CLICK HERE for the full transcript

In This Episode We Discuss:

  • How his mother's illness inspired him to pursue a career in health.
  • The strategy he used to grow his practice.
  • What he learned by working with a wide range of clients, from regular families to professional athletes.
  • His secret to health success.
  • Why he thinks we could all benefit from eating a little dirt.

PMR Special Report Image


When Nina Teicholz (author of international best-seller, The Big Fat Surprise) was invited to participate in a panel discussion at the 39th annual National Food Policy Conference taking place this week in Washington DC, she was excited for the opportunity to bring her ideas about food and nutrition to the BIG table. This conference brings together the food policy insiders who create position statements that have far reaching consequences for how our nation eats, and it's hard to argue against the fact that we need to eat better. We're fatter, sicker, and unhealthier than ever.


But, when Nina's co-panelists found out she would be participating, they threatened to drop out of the conference unless she was disinvited, and so she was.

Click Here for the full transcript.

 

In This Episode We Discuss:

  • The events leading up to her invitation and subsequent removal from the food policy panel.
  • How she felt about the news.
  • And what she's doing about it.
