We are delighted to welcome NFL player Tim Hightower to talk to us about his Paleo journey to recovery from a serious, career-threatening injury. Like many other young players in the NFL, Tim’s diet was not very well thought out, consisting of lots of fast food and whatever else was available. It was only after he sustained an injury that would put him out of action for almost four seasons that he changed his diet with the goal of recovery. In our conversation, he tells us about the perseverance it took to get back on the field after so much time out, and how long it took to find the right doctor to give him the right advice. He then takes us through his current workout and dietary practices and some of the basic lessons he has learned along the way. Tim drives home some important points around recovery, mobility, stamina, and adaptation. For a great talk with an experienced, top-level athlete, be sure to tune in!

Have you ever eaten insects? Would you ever eat insects? Are you immediately grossed out by the idea? Or are you kind of interested? Like it or not, a massive portion of the world already eats insects, and some insects are pound for pound a cleaner, more sustainable, and overall more economical source of protein than any other animal protein you’re currently consuming. At the end of the day, it all comes down to perspective, and Robyn Shapiro, founder of Seek Food, is here to share hers. In this episode, we discuss the benefits of cricket protein and how Seek Food is working to create the most delightful insect-eating experience with award-winning chefs.

On this week’s episode, we welcome Lauren Lobley of Delectable You, author of The Accidental Paleo. Lauren is here to tell us all about her vegetarian and mostly plant-based approach to the Paleo diet and unpack some of the contents of her book and dietary philosophy. In our discussion, we look back on Lauren’s history with food and how she decided on the title The Accidental Paleo. We then go on to talk about the intersection of vegetarianism and the Paleo diet and how dietary choices are so individual that it is really up to a person to find the right balance for themselves through research and experimentation. Lauren also tells us about her love for desserts and how she approaches this in the book and in her life. The book is not so much instructive and normative as an offering of supplementary and complementary ideas for a more rounded Paleo lifestyle. For all this and more, be sure to tune in!

Key Points From This Episode:

  • Some of Lauren’s background and her dietary journey. 
  • Why Lauren calls herself and her book The Accidental Paleo.
  • Understanding how vegetarianism and Paleo can fit together.
  • A more personalized and experimental approach to the right diet.
  • Helping people replace the filling parts of a meal with no grains and meat.

  • The positive feedback that Lauren has received since publishing The Accidental Paelo.
  • Lauren’s brand new dessert company, Delectable You.
