    230. The Power of Regenerative Farming and Pasture-Raised Protein with Paul Grieve #FabulousFriends

    You all know I'm a big supporter of healthy, ethically raised animal proteins – and today we get another serving of the good stuff.Today's guest is Farmer Paul Grieve. Paul is the founder of Pasturebird, the largest pasture-raised chicken operation in the world, focused on making true pasture-raised, nutrient-dense chicken, more accessible and affordable to you and me.Paul never set out to be a farmer. His journey began after contracting Lyme disease from a tick bite during his marine corps training, a seemingly innocuous event that would shape the rest of his life. Going Paleo as a means to treat his symptoms, he identified a glaring gap in the market for natural, pasture-raised chicken – especially in Southern California.Soon, his backyard-based business maintained wholesale accounts with both the Los Angeles Lakers and the Dodgers. He was onto something big, and hasn't slowed down since.I'm so inspired by Paul, his wife Lynsey, the community they've created, and all the good they're putting into this world. It's such a pleasure to introduce you to Pasturebird in the hopes that this knowledge empowers you with a better way of taking care of your family, and the planet as well.We also cover…00:02:55 — Catching Up With Farmer Paul GrieveReliving happy memories at Pasturebird's farmRemaking the land from 50 years of soil depletion A surprising shift from the marines to farmingContracting Lyme disease from a tick bite and his resulting symptoms How Paleo changed his outlook on health and nutrition Identifying a gap in the market for pasture-raised chickenThe 50 tiny baby chicks that started it allCreating Pasturebird and Primal Pastures thanks to the help of Joel Salatin 00:13:45 – Paul's Shift in Diet & Mindset around Nutrient-Dense Food Paul's delicious local diet as a Marine in IraqAmerica's lack of nutrient-dense foods and recommendations Indigenous wisdom around regenerative farmingInspired by the work of Joel SalatinSoil quality over the generationsRoaming vs. stationary livestockKiss The Ground (film)Harms of monocropping and factory farming00:24:34 — Scaling A Regenerative FarmMission to be widely available and affordable Pasturebird is at Sprouts!The key to scaling an eco-friendly chicken business Welcoming technological solutions to inefficiency problems Inventing the Automated Range Coop to support 6,000 chickens00:35:10 – How Healthy Soil Grows Healthy FoodAllowing chickens to forage on pesticide-free landBugs, not drugs – raising clean poultryThe ‘flaws' in a conventional chicken operationFind Real Chicken Near YouCarbon sequestration in plants, water infiltration, & biodiversity from regenerative farmingSupporting an evolving ecosystem with the reintegration of crops and animalsReimagining and reinventing the future of our food system00:57:54 — Paul's Health & Home HacksPaleo-forward family diet Education pods and garage learning for their kidsLiving amongst a large family support...

He's the author of the bestselling book, The Comfort Crisis, and a professor of journalism at UNLV.We spend this one unpacking the comfort crisis and the complex experiences that seeded this concept in Michael's mind as something more than an observation of his own life. He covers his nutrition journey, why learning how much he was eating was the key to understanding his own metabolic equilibrium, highlights a few fascinating teachers and researchers that have inspired him along the way, and applies his crisis lens to another, more surprising, neurological gem under siege – creativity in kids.His application of learned lessons is a breath of fresh air. Backed in research, but avoidant of the weeds – his POV is heart-filled and psychological, but not out of reach.

Wearing the device, users unlock a wealth of knowledge about how their body works, helping people understand how their food directly impacts their health and quality of life.We talk about how she went from being on the waitlist for Levels, to being recruited to work there. At the time, reckoning with a surprising (but not surprising) prediabetes diagnosis – she was looking for answers.

Dave unmasks the popular health food as expensive, bitter, and toxic – but it's far from the only thing to catch heat from this world class truth teller today. We hear all about his new clean coffee brand, Danger Coffee, which is produced with strict anti-mold protocols and enriched with important minerals that are both not seen in most processed, popular American foods and which are actively removed from our systems by harmful ingredients and chemicals.  Dave rails against the systematic decline in testosterone across young men, a concerning trend that has ripples throughout every level of society. We hash out the science of soil, why mineral depletion plays such a big part in widespread sickness and disease. And we also learn of his latest high-tech biohacking projects, where he's deploying AI to train our brains, and bodies, with less time and effort required by traditional methods.  Mitochondria and mold are two more hot topics as Dave weaves science and levity into his vast life experience for a direct and to-the-point delivery of the facts.

Her body of work has had an immense impact on my parenting journey, which is only part of the reason I'm so excited she's sharing her time with us today. We touch on many of Dr. Bryson's core concepts of well-adjusted parenting, most tied to the fact that our little ones are actually brilliant – that their brains create automatic associations, just like ours. Still, we need to be mindful of our explicit and implicit messaging; just because they can make associations doesn't mean they're right (or logical), after all. She also gives some amazing and actionable advice on a couple specific behavioral challenges we're seeing with Bash at home, and blesses us with some other quick tools on empowering kids to be brave, name their feelings, and build resilience. .   If you are a new parent or even thinking about having children, I would start reading her books and practicing on your partner.

They're here to talk about their first cookbook, The Siete Table, which features over a hundred gluten free Mexican-American dishes that span every course and occasion. Of course, we cover the brand's backstory – after Veronica Garza had many autoimmune issues  show up, including lupus, she started to do CrossFit with her family in her parents' backyard. After switching to a grain-free diet, she noticed her joints weren't bothering her anymore, which was the catalyst to starting this company.

Today's guest, Dr. Whitney Goodman, assures us of that much and more. She's the radically honest psychotherapist behind the popular Instagram account, @sitwithwhit, the book Toxic Positivity: Keeping It Real in a World Obsessed with Being Happy, and the owner of the Collaborative Counseling Center, a private therapy practice in Miami. She helps individuals and couples heal past wounds and create the life they've always wanted. We spend this episode unpacking the false perception of perfection all around us, the world's constant striving for “happiness,” and why finding center in your life is so much more complicated than that – and should be! Whether it's content-friendly or not – feeling all the feelings, really embracing them and chershing them, can be as healthy for us as a diverse and nutrient-rich diet. Dr. Goodman offers up a more diverse experience, more layers to really dive into and learn about ourselves and the people we love. We get tips on listening (it's more than just hearing!), recognizing toxic positivity and understanding why it sells, the importance of values over happiness, and prioritizing focus time – even thirty minutes a day – to help keep your mind sharp. It's time to get honest about – well, everything! There's no time to waste striving and stressing over goals that only move further into the distance the harder we work at them.

    The esteemed Dr. Jeffrey Bland, an internationally recognized leader in the nutritional medicine field, joins the show today. He's a biochemist by training, co-founding the Institute for Functional Medicine in 1991 while coming to be known to many as The Father of Functional Medicine.  Dr. Bland invites us into his deep wisdom and vast experience as we explore his path to, and away from, traditional medicine, before delving into the issues we see in modern healthcare and what the rapidly changing space might look like in the near future.  Today's healthcare ills, as he points out, can be tied to money's omnipresence in the market, which has urged the prioritization of disease treatment – for profit's sake, mostly – rather than focusing on promoting societal wellness as its table-stakes mission. We also talk about his latest project, (Big Bold Health), which launched in 2018, through which he's on a mission to transform the way people think about one of nature's greatest innovations, the mighty immune system. That's right, the gut remains front and center as Dr. Bland breaks down the differences between boosting and balancing, benefits to eating the rainbow, and much more. By advocating for the power of immuno-rejuvenation to enhance immunity at a global level, he's really doing some important work for the world – work that generations in the future (and today!) can look back upon and be so thankful for.

    Dr. Anthony Jay is the President of the International Medical Research Collaborative, a nonprofit organization based in Boston that trains medical students from around the globe. He is also an author and renowned expert on estrogenics, substances that merely act like estrogen in our body, oftentimes tricking it into negative chain reactions in our health – even cancer. So, where are these tricky imposters in the products around us? And, how can we avoid them in the future? Dr. Anthony details the long list in his book, and is kind to share many examples in our conversation today. Specifically, he touches on fragrances, petroleum products, soy products, and mold, which is so much more common in shelf products like coffee, grains, and peanuts than you might imagine. We also talk about the role that the gut microbiome, an old familiar friend, plays in our processing of these chemicals, and draw a very real connection between the harms of estrogenics and everyday plastics like water bottles and shower liners. If you're listening to this and looking around your life with a newfound stress, know that you're not alone in this collective journey to a more natural, non-toxic, and simple life. Knowledge is key. Understanding complexities like those presented today is the first step toward making positive changes. And we're here to help you get there, every step of the way. You will learn about... What are estrogenics?  Estrogenics vs. testosterone Link between estrogenics and an increased risk of cancer  Common products and ingredients to avoid broken into three categories: food, plastics and personal care Major players to know: mold, red dye, flax and soy Chemical risks of plastic water bottles Sources of other plastics to avoid Why “BPA-free” isn't good enough The science of estrogen in plastic High estrogen leading to early puberty in girls Common home products to be aware of What these chemicals do to your hormones Benefits of sweating and sauna use to expel chemicals  Resources: Linkedin: (Anthony G.
