In this episode, Ashleigh speaks with Dr. Bill Schindler, an archaeologist, primitive technologist, chef, and author of the book, Eat Like a Human.

They cover:

  • His journey from having an unhealthy approach to food and body image in his younger years, to learning how to enjoy a more nourishing and less punishing relationship with food;

  • The ONE food humans are actually perfectly designed to eat, and why human beings are actually not very efficient eaters;

  • The science of digestion in animals and humans;
  • His experience on a survival-based reality show called The Great Human Race;

  • His food trips to places like Ireland, Sardinia, and beyond, and how he shares these adventures with his family;

  • Why fermentation is such a crucial food preparation tool - and how to ferment foods you never imagined could be fermented!

  • Some of the most "challenging" foods he's ever tried (fermented shark and maggot cheese, anyone?)

  • How he came to his current work in understanding and teaching the benefits of ancestral forms of food preparation, and why this dying art is important to capture now, which leads to

  • The work he's doing at his Eastern Shore Food lab, which he founded to preserve and revive ancestral dietary methods to create a nourishing, ethical, and sustainable food system.

Shoutout to our show sponsor Active Stacks! They make high-quality beef protein isolate in two delicious flavors, chocolate and vanilla. They're made with cocoa and vanilla paste, not that unexplained "natural flavoring" you see listed everywhere, so it tastes better and mixes well into your protein shakes or baking. Beef protein is often easier to digest than whey protein for many people, and it's high in glycine, an amino acid that is the main building block for collagen and can help improve sleep and muscle building.
