According to Zevia CEO Paddy Spence, fighting for smarter food options for consumers against large, established competitors is the riskiest career move he ever made, but he's not one to shy away from a fight, or to let fear of failure prevent him from taking a risk.

Growing up with a single mom who struggled to make ends meat, but always made a point to feed her kids the best food she could buy, Paddy knew that he wasn't going to get any handouts and any success he had would come from dedication and hard work.

He studied Greek and Latin in high school and used his unique specialization to get the interest of the college administrators at Harvard where he paid his way by delivering boxes for UPS. After graduating from Harvard Business School with his MBA, he went on to work for companies like Kashi, and Levlad, a personal care manufacturer that makes natural shampoos and soaps. He also founded SPINS, a health and wellness marketing firm.

While working at Levlad, Paddy came across a stevia sweetened soda called Zevia, and was inspired to find out more about the company. He ended up buying the the small startup and has since led Zevia to over $100 million dollars in annual revenue, and that's with products that are artificial color free, artificial flavor free, corn syrup free, GMO free and naturally sweetened. 

On today's show, we are joined by Paddy Spence to discuss his career, his life, and how he's trying to revolutionize the diet soda industry.

Chef Trevor Bird was born and raised in Montreal, Canada and began cutting his culinary teeth when we was only a teenager. His career path wound through some of Canada's best restaurants, and eventually landed him a spot on season 2 of Top Chef Canada. Although he didn't win the competition, he did come in second place, and used the experience, and a partnership with fellow contestant Curtis Luk, to open his own restaurant, a farm-to-table focused eatery named Fable Kitchen and Diner. He is now one of Canada's most ardent real food advocates and his passion for feeding people well has now manifested in his latest project, an online meat co-op called MeatMe.co
 
Meatme connects customers to a growing network of Canadian farmers who raise their animals on natural pasture and in a honest and humane way. Qualifying farms do not use hormones, antibiotics, or any chemicals whatsoever and are also required to provide ample living space, natural and GMO free feed, and high standards of animal welfare.
 
On the MeatMe.co site, you can actually pick the exact animal you want to buy a share of, such as "Heifer no. 347 | Black Angus", "Hog no. 188 | Nut fed Berkshire", and "Lamb no. 874 | Hair bred". Additionally, Chef Trevor provides innovative and delicious recipes with each order, and he joins us on our show today to tell us more about his culinary career and the Meatme.co difference.

We've talked to many people who have dealt with serious health conditions, and many of them have been frustrated or stymied by the conventional medical system and the care they've received from doctors, but what happens if you are the patient and the doctor? This is the situation Dr. Cate Shanahan found herself in when she experienced a mysterious and undiagnosable pain in her knee that made it difficult for her to walk and almost cost her her job.  

After trying multiple treatments and experiencing numerous dead ends, she came across a book called Spontaneous Healing by Dr. Andrew Weil, which, in her words, "opened a crack in the darkness." In Spontaneous Healing, Dr. Cate learned about the significance of omega three fatty acids and it set her on a path to uncover the "dark calories" that have infiltrated our food supply and how traditional fats, and an ancestral diet in general, can provide a way out of many modern diseases. She was inspired to write her ideas down, and these notes provided the basis for her best-selling book Deep Nutrition that she wrote along with her husband Luke.  

Deep Nutrition was originally released back in 2008, and since then, she has been busy building her medical practice, speaking at conferences across the country, and working as a dietary consultant for the LA Lakers. Obviously she's learned a lot in the process and is now taking those lessons and using them to revise, update, and expand her book.

The updated version of Dr. Cate's Deep Nutrition is now available, and on today's show, we discuss:

  • The dangers of intergenerational malnutrition.
  • The superfood she used to help Kobe Bryant recover 100% faster from an ankle injury.
  • Why oxidative stress is the ultimate disease maker.
  • How free radicals can create an explosion of inflammation in the body.
  • Why good fats taste better.
  • The right questions to ask when you go to a restaurant.
  • How she gets professional basketball players to eat healthy.

Sarah Ramsden believes that "When you’re given a wake up call, you have to do something with it." Her particular wake up call was being diagnosed with a brain tumor and multiple sclerosis all in one week, and her do something about it was leaving a lucrative graphic design career, ending an unfulfilling marriage, going back to school, and moving across the country.
 
Sarah is now coaching others to take an active role in their recovery from a major illness, helping them to become thrivers, not just survivors. She has been featured on The Huffington Post, The Whole 30, and House and Home and we're happy to have her join us here today on Paleo Magazine Radio.

Based in Northern California, Jambo Superfoods has made waves in the Paleo community and beyond by bringing the world's first Paleo certified cannabis edible to the marijuana marketplace. 

Earlier this year, we interviewed the founders of Jambo, Shannon Puma Drake and Johg Ananda, and we discussed their personal and professional lives, it was an enlightening conversation to be sure, but before we go any further we’d like to warn anyone who doesn't want to hear adults talk about pot that they might want want to skip today's show, alternately, if you have kids in the car and you'd rather not have "that" conversation with them, now would be a good time to check out just about any other episode of Paleo Magazine Radio.

If you're still here however, we’re going to assume that you're game to get into this discussion, and because it's a two part interview that spans an entire two hours, we’re going to cut right to the chase.

In part one, we’ll be talking to Shannon about:

  • Her former career as a fashion marketer.
  • What led to her starting her first company, Give me the Dirt.
  • How she first learned about Paleo from a biological anthropology professor.
  • The impact of witnessing her father's battle with lung cancer.
  • Overcoming chronic migraines.
  • Using cannabis recreationally, medically, and as a tool for personal development.
  • Resurrecting the wisdom of the ancients.
  • Using breathwork to master your body.
  • How she found her her inner jungle cat through plant medicine.

We will have a short intermission before getting into our second interview with Johg Ananda where we discuss:

  • Growing up in Florida.
  • Working for his dad's plumbing company.
  • Starting a startup, failing, and starting again.
  • How he turned an idea into a business in single weekend.
  • Why asking yourself the question "can you sell it?" is more important for an entrepreneur than "can you make it".
  • Why Tim Ferriss' 4-hour work week worked, but took more time, money, and energy, than Johg had ever imagined.
  • The irony of medical cannabis products that are full of sugar and processed ingredients.
  • How he is navigating his way through the complex web of marijuana laws and regulations in order to bring value to the lives of his customers, employees, and himself.
