There are so many amazing people doing great work in the Paleo community using the vast array of skills and talents they’ve been gifted with to spread the message to the mainstream. Two of the most incredible people pushing healthy Paleo living are the adorable husband-wife dynamic duo named Bill Staley and Hayley Mason from PrimalPalate.com. You may remember them from Jimmy’s previous interviews with them about their books Make It Paleo in 2011 and Gather in 2013. Now they’re back with a brand new book in 2015 entitled Make it Paleo II: Over 175 New Grain-Free Recipes for the Primal Palate.

Listen in as Jimmy, Bill, and Hayley talk about how they’ve inspired people to get backyard chickens, the craving for more and more recipes that fit the Paleo template, Bill’s amazing photography for various cookbooks in the community, their new book is what would happen if Make It Paleo and Gather had a baby, the lessons they’ve learned from photographing food by other authors, their famous dog Charley on Instagram, how they set the original mold for making good Paleo cookbooks, how the recipes in the new book are the next step up for people who have been eating Paleo for a while, the involvement of Hayley’s sushi chef and “pretty Paleo” sister Caitlin in the book, why they included safe starch information in their book although not so much in their recipes, Jimmy’s negative experience eating white rice on Paul Jaminet’s Perfect Health Retreat, the dirty dozen and clean fifteen information they included in their book, the funky names of ingredients they learned from the Netflix show The Mind Of A Chef, how they try to incorporate more organ meats into their recipes for getting quality nutrition (while being appealing to the palate), the companies like Epic bars adding in organ meats to their products, their burger with pork belly recipe that will get people to buy in to it, how you can make your own bacon at home in a week, the benefits of having various kinds of meat smokers, the low-carb friendly recipes throughout their new book, their world-famous chocolate-covered bacon recipe, the meal event recommendations they included in the back of the book, what got them interested in getting backyard chickens ten weeks ago (just don’t get baby chicks in January if you live in the north!), the mixed flock of egg-laying chickens, how Diana Rodgers pushed them to get the chickens, and the busybody neighbor who tried to prevent them from having chickens in their yard.

You may have heard the term sustainability in the context of the food supply and healthy living in the past few years but didn’t quite know what it meant. But Boston, Massachusetts-based RD-in-training and organic animal and vegetable farmer Diana Rodgers from SustainableDish.com has made it her personal mission to spread the word about how to attain optimal health is by focusing on nutritious and delicious eating with humanely-raised animals, organic vegetables, and being willing to get your hands a little dirty to reconnect with your food again. She’s written a fabulous new book about this topic entitled The Homegrown Paleo Cookbook: Over 100 Delicious, Gluten-Free, Farm-to-Table Recipes, and a Complete Guide to Growing Your Own Healthy Food.

Listen in as Jimmy and Diana talk about her current farming life, her course work getting her registered dietitian education, how giving nutrition advice out to clients required her to become an RD, her extensive questionnaire for new clients, the depressing state of nutrition for patients in hospitals, how school cafeterias are trying to make the best food they can with the food they get, the local sourcing of quality foods happening in Minneapolis, MN, the guidelines and budgetary restraints of food sold to schools, the local store in her area that is making to-go meals made out of quality food available, why the original name for the book was going to be Sustainable Paleo, the variety of foods you get from a CSA (even if you don’t know what to do with it), how she’s getting people to take their Paleo diet to the next level (Paleo 2.0), why real food is really the ultimate focus we are trying to get people to embrace, the purpose and value in owning your own bees, the inspiration she’s made on me to get chickens for my backyard, how home gardens and farm animals used to be the norm, how Americans spend less money on food than the rest of the world, the kind of food she feeds her family, how she believes so strongly in eating by the season and locally, the non-diet, community-building things she included in her book, and the games she talks about like Capture The Flag and Chicken *BLEEP* Bingo.

Although the low-carb message has been out there for more than a century, the interpretation of what that looks like on a meal plate and the purpose for eating this way is still one of hot debate today. Unfortunately, many modern-day low-carb dieters make the mistake of including suspicious food items (grains, sugars, fake sweeteners) that wouldn’t be recognized by people in the original low-carb diet days of William Banting while putting all the emphasis of restricting carbohydrates on losing weight. That’s why it’s great to have people like registered dietitian Franziska Spritzler from the “Low Carb Dietitian” blog articulating the use of a real, whole foods-based low-carb lifestyle for the purposes of improving health and beauty. It’s such a different take on the standard use of a low-carb diet that Franziska has put it all together in a brand new book about it entitled The Low Carb Dietitian’s Guide to Health and Beauty: How a Whole-Foods, Low-Carbohydrate Lifestyle Can Help You Look and Feel Better Than Ever.

Listen in as Jimmy and Franziska share about the whole lifestyle that improves health and looks (not just about weight loss), why a whole foods-based diet is critical to making a low-carb diet work well, how saying you can’t eat higher quality food is an invalid excuse, why the Atkins products and other “low-carb” products may not be great for you, who she was trying to reach with the “beauty” part of her book title, why she is proud to be 48 and still look so young, how the Paleo and real food movement have played a major role in shifting low-carb dieters, the concerns about ketosis from dietitians and health professionals, the persistence at promoting whole grains as healthy, how people rationalize eating grains over fat and protein, the illustration of the amount of sugar in the blood vs. the ADA’s idea of healthy amounts of carbohydrates for diabetics to consume, why even whole foods promoted by the Paleo community can be problematic for people with insulin resistance, how people can determine whether a low-carb diet is right for them, why including more salt and fat in your diet is necessary on a low-carb diet, how a low-carb diet can provide benefits even without being ketogenic, the various options that are available for people wanting to eat low-carb, helping people recognize where they are in their carb tolerance, why she still put the calories and nutritional data in her recipes (for those people who obsess over those things), why the sugar substitute issue is still debated, her recommendations to have some of these in small amounts (but not the sugar alcohols like maltitol found in many sugar-free chocolates), how reducing your taste for sweet down will help your health, why she falls down on the side of net carbs vs. total carbohydrates, the importance of getting an adequate fiber intake, how the rest of the world lists fiber separately from total carbohydrates on the nutrition labels, and the ton of recipes she provided in her book.

Throughout the month of February, we will be airing audio footage of most of the lectures shared on the 2014 Low-Carb Cruise.

Then in the second featured audio lecture we’ll hear from bestselling low-carb cookbook author and Low-Carb Cruise staple speaker Dana Carpender from “Hold The Toast” who always brings a certain pizzazz to the microphone when she shares.

Some people seek out celebrity status by bringing attention to themselves to make that happen. But there are a few very special people in the world who have no such desire to become famous and yet that’s exactly what happens to them within the natural course of doing what they love and are passionate about. That certainly describes today’s interview guest Pete Evans, perhaps the most famous TV chef in Australia. He has taken his joy for cooking professionally and combined it with a healthy emphasis on a low-carb, high-fat version of the Paleo diet to help make the people of his country and around the world better off in their weight and health than they’ve ever been before. Now Pete has brought a bit of that Aussie flair to the United States with the release of his new book The Paleo Chef: Quick, Flavorful Paleo Meals for Eating Well.

Listen in as Jimmy and Pete share about how Nora Gedgaudas introduced him to Paleo, his culinary training in the United States, his personal interest in health and nutrition, how Tony Robbins got him excited about healthy living, how being a vegan made his health deteriorate, how going Paleo has helped him and his entire family get healthy, the major shift that will take place in the next five years regarding real food, why he thought about calling his nutritional approach the “Pete Evans Way,” weight normalization is merely the bonus of eating healthy again, the reality of “normal” from mainstream health gurus is far different from what we consider normal, the rise in dietitians embracing this way of eating, the popularity of the Paleo Cafe chain in Australia, his “The Paleo Way” television series that has gone worldwide, why he doesn’t put a ton of science into his presentations, the 10-week program he provides with Nora Gedgaudas, how he “reluctantly” got into being a television chef, food television programs have become a ratings success around the world, how this focus on food is planting seeds in the minds of the next generation, how he funded “The Paleo Way” TV show with his own money with no commitment from any network to air it, his “transition” approach to get families to buy into better food choices, his “I love pasta” story, and so much more. Pete Evans is a superstar celebrity chef in Australia and we’re honored to have him here today on the show.

He has taken his joy for cooking professionally and combined it with a healthy emphasis on a low-carb, high-fat version of the Paleo diet to help make the people of his country and around the world better off in their weight and health than they’ve ever been before. Now Pete has brought a bit of that Aussie flair to the United States with the release of his new book The Paleo Chef: Quick, Flavorful Paleo Meals for Eating Well.

Listen in as Jimmy and Pete share about how Nora Gedgaudas introduced him to Paleo, his culinary training in the United States, his personal interest in health and nutrition, how Tony Robbins got him excited about healthy living, how being a vegan made his health deteriorate, how going Paleo has helped him and his entire family get healthy, the major shift that will take place in the next five years regarding real food, why he thought about calling his nutritional approach the “Pete Evans Way,” weight normalization is merely the bonus of eating healthy again, the reality of “normal” from mainstream health gurus is far different from what we consider normal, the rise in dietitians embracing this way of eating, the popularity of the Paleo Cafe chain in Australia, his “The Paleo Way” television series that has gone worldwide, why he doesn’t put a ton of science into his presentations, the 10-week program he provides with Nora Gedgaudas, how he “reluctantly” got into being a television chef, food television programs have become a ratings success around the world, how this focus on food is planting seeds in the minds of the next generation, how he funded “The Paleo Way” TV show with his own money with no commitment from any network to air it, his “transition” approach to get families to buy into better food choices, his “I love pasta” story, and so much more. Pete Evans is a superstar celebrity chef in Australia and we’re honored to have him here today on the show.

There are so many amazing people doing great work in the Paleo community using the vast array of skills and talents they’ve been gifted with to spread the message to the mainstream. Two of the most incredible people pushing healthy Paleo living are the adorable husband-wife dynamic duo named Bill Staley and Hayley Mason from PrimalPalate.com. You may remember them from Jimmy’s previous interviews with them about their books Make It Paleo in 2011 and Gather in 2013. Now they’re back with a brand new book in 2015 entitled Make it Paleo II: Over 175 New Grain-Free Recipes for the Primal Palate.

Listen in as Jimmy, Bill, and Hayley talk about how they’ve inspired people to get backyard chickens, the craving for more and more recipes that fit the Paleo template, Bill’s amazing photography for various cookbooks in the community, their new book is what would happen if Make It Paleo and Gather had a baby, the lessons they’ve learned from photographing food by other authors, their famous dog Charley on Instagram, how they set the original mold for making good Paleo cookbooks, how the recipes in the new book are the next step up for people who have been eating Paleo for a while, the involvement of Hayley’s sushi chef and “pretty Paleo” sister Caitlin in the book, why they included safe starch information in their book although not so much in their recipes, Jimmy’s negative experience eating white rice on Paul Jaminet’s Perfect Health Retreat, the dirty dozen and clean fifteen information they included in their book, the funky names of ingredients they learned from the Netflix show The Mind Of A Chef, how they try to incorporate more organ meats into their recipes for getting quality nutrition (while being appealing to the palate), the companies like Epic bars adding in organ meats to their products, their burger with pork belly recipe that will get people to buy in to it, how you can make your own bacon at home in a week, the benefits of having various kinds of meat smokers, the low-carb friendly recipes throughout their new book, their world-famous chocolate-covered bacon recipe, the meal event recommendations they included in the back of the book, what got them interested in getting backyard chickens ten weeks ago (just don’t get baby chicks in January if you live in the north!), the mixed flock of egg-laying chickens, how Diana Rodgers pushed them to get the chickens, and the busybody neighbor who tried to prevent them from having chickens in their yard.

You may have heard the term sustainability in the context of the food supply and healthy living in the past few years but didn’t quite know what it meant. But Boston, Massachusetts-based RD-in-training and organic animal and vegetable farmer Diana Rodgers from SustainableDish.com has made it her personal mission to spread the word about how to attain optimal health is by focusing on nutritious and delicious eating with humanely-raised animals, organic vegetables, and being willing to get your hands a little dirty to reconnect with your food again. She’s written a fabulous new book about this topic entitled The Homegrown Paleo Cookbook: Over 100 Delicious, Gluten-Free, Farm-to-Table Recipes, and a Complete Guide to Growing Your Own Healthy Food.

Listen in as Jimmy and Diana talk about her current farming life, her course work getting her registered dietitian education, how giving nutrition advice out to clients required her to become an RD, her extensive questionnaire for new clients, the depressing state of nutrition for patients in hospitals, how school cafeterias are trying to make the best food they can with the food they get, the local sourcing of quality foods happening in Minneapolis, MN, the guidelines and budgetary restraints of food sold to schools, the local store in her area that is making to-go meals made out of quality food available, why the original name for the book was going to be Sustainable Paleo, the variety of foods you get from a CSA (even if you don’t know what to do with it), how she’s getting people to take their Paleo diet to the next level (Paleo 2.0), why real food is really the ultimate focus we are trying to get people to embrace, the purpose and value in owning your own bees, the inspiration she’s made on me to get chickens for my backyard, how home gardens and farm animals used to be the norm, how Americans spend less money on food than the rest of the world, the kind of food she feeds her family, how she believes so strongly in eating by the season and locally, the non-diet, community-building things she included in her book, and the games she talks about like Capture The Flag and Chicken *BLEEP* Bingo.

Although the low-carb message has been out there for more than a century, the interpretation of what that looks like on a meal plate and the purpose for eating this way is still one of hot debate today. Unfortunately, many modern-day low-carb dieters make the mistake of including suspicious food items (grains, sugars, fake sweeteners) that wouldn’t be recognized by people in the original low-carb diet days of William Banting while putting all the emphasis of restricting carbohydrates on losing weight. That’s why it’s great to have people like registered dietitian Franziska Spritzler from the “Low Carb Dietitian” blog articulating the use of a real, whole foods-based low-carb lifestyle for the purposes of improving health and beauty. It’s such a different take on the standard use of a low-carb diet that Franziska has put it all together in a brand new book about it entitled The Low Carb Dietitian’s Guide to Health and Beauty: How a Whole-Foods, Low-Carbohydrate Lifestyle Can Help You Look and Feel Better Than Ever.

Listen in as Jimmy and Franziska share about the whole lifestyle that improves health and looks (not just about weight loss), why a whole foods-based diet is critical to making a low-carb diet work well, how saying you can’t eat higher quality food is an invalid excuse, why the Atkins products and other “low-carb” products may not be great for you, who she was trying to reach with the “beauty” part of her book title, why she is proud to be 48 and still look so young, how the Paleo and real food movement have played a major role in shifting low-carb dieters, the concerns about ketosis from dietitians and health professionals, the persistence at promoting whole grains as healthy, how people rationalize eating grains over fat and protein, the illustration of the amount of sugar in the blood vs. the ADA’s idea of healthy amounts of carbohydrates for diabetics to consume, why even whole foods promoted by the Paleo community can be problematic for people with insulin resistance, how people can determine whether a low-carb diet is right for them, why including more salt and fat in your diet is necessary on a low-carb diet, how a low-carb diet can provide benefits even without being ketogenic, the various options that are available for people wanting to eat low-carb, helping people recognize where they are in their carb tolerance, why she still put the calories and nutritional data in her recipes (for those people who obsess over those things), why the sugar substitute issue is still debated, her recommendations to have some of these in small amounts (but not the sugar alcohols like maltitol found in many sugar-free chocolates), how reducing your taste for sweet down will help your health, why she falls down on the side of net carbs vs. total carbohydrates, the importance of getting an adequate fiber intake, how the rest of the world lists fiber separately from total carbohydrates on the nutrition labels, and the ton of recipes she provided in her book.

Throughout the month of February, we will be airing audio footage of most of the lectures shared on the 2014 Low-Carb Cruise.

Today’s first featured audio lecture is from husband-wife nutritional health advocates Dr. Jayson and Mira Calton from “Calton Nutrition” who share their perspective on getting all the proper micronutrition into your low-carb diet. Then in the second featured audio lecture we’ll hear from bestselling low-carb cookbook author and Low-Carb Cruise staple speaker Dana Carpender from “Hold The Toast” who always brings a certain pizzazz to the microphone when she shares.

Some people seek out celebrity status by bringing attention to themselves to make that happen. But there are a few very special people in the world who have no such desire to become famous and yet that’s exactly what happens to them within the natural course of doing what they love and are passionate about. That certainly describes today’s interview guest Pete Evans, perhaps the most famous TV chef in Australia. He has taken his joy for cooking professionally and combined it with a healthy emphasis on a low-carb, high-fat version of the Paleo diet to help make the people of his country and around the world better off in their weight and health than they’ve ever been before. Now Pete has brought a bit of that Aussie flair to the United States with the release of his new book The Paleo Chef: Quick, Flavorful Paleo Meals for Eating Well.

Listen in as Jimmy and Pete share about how Nora Gedgaudas introduced him to Paleo, his culinary training in the United States, his personal interest in health and nutrition, how Tony Robbins got him excited about healthy living, how being a vegan made his health deteriorate, how going Paleo has helped him and his entire family get healthy, the major shift that will take place in the next five years regarding real food, why he thought about calling his nutritional approach the “Pete Evans Way,” weight normalization is merely the bonus of eating healthy again, the reality of “normal” from mainstream health gurus is far different from what we consider normal, the rise in dietitians embracing this way of eating, the popularity of the Paleo Cafe chain in Australia, his “The Paleo Way” television series that has gone worldwide, why he doesn’t put a ton of science into his presentations, the 10-week program he provides with Nora Gedgaudas, how he “reluctantly” got into being a television chef, food television programs have become a ratings success around the world, how this focus on food is planting seeds in the minds of the next generation, how he funded “The Paleo Way” TV show with his own money with no commitment from any network to air it, his “transition” approach to get families to buy into better food choices, his “I love pasta” story, and so much more. Pete Evans is a superstar celebrity chef in Australia and we’re honored to have him here today on the show.

There are so many amazing people doing great work in the Paleo community using the vast array of skills and talents they’ve been gifted with to spread the message to the mainstream. Two of the most incredible people pushing healthy Paleo living are the adorable husband-wife dynamic duo named Bill Staley and Hayley Mason from PrimalPalate.com. You may remember them from Jimmy’s previous interviews with them about their books Make It Paleo in 2011 and Gather in 2013. Now they’re back with a brand new book in 2015 entitled Make it Paleo II: Over 175 New Grain-Free Recipes for the Primal Palate.

Listen in as Jimmy, Bill, and Hayley talk about how they’ve inspired people to get backyard chickens, the craving for more and more recipes that fit the Paleo template, Bill’s amazing photography for various cookbooks in the community, their new book is what would happen if Make It Paleo and Gather had a baby, the lessons they’ve learned from photographing food by other authors, their famous dog Charley on Instagram, how they set the original mold for making good Paleo cookbooks, how the recipes in the new book are the next step up for people who have been eating Paleo for a while, the involvement of Hayley’s sushi chef and “pretty Paleo” sister Caitlin in the book, why they included safe starch information in their book although not so much in their recipes, Jimmy’s negative experience eating white rice on Paul Jaminet’s Perfect Health Retreat, the dirty dozen and clean fifteen information they included in their book, the funky names of ingredients they learned from the Netflix show The Mind Of A Chef, how they try to incorporate more organ meats into their recipes for getting quality nutrition (while being appealing to the palate), the companies like Epic bars adding in organ meats to their products, their burger with pork belly recipe that will get people to buy in to it, how you can make your own bacon at home in a week, the benefits of having various kinds of meat smokers, the low-carb friendly recipes throughout their new book, their world-famous chocolate-covered bacon recipe, the meal event recommendations they included in the back of the book, what got them interested in getting backyard chickens ten weeks ago (just don’t get baby chicks in January if you live in the north!), the mixed flock of egg-laying chickens, how Diana Rodgers pushed them to get the chickens, and the busybody neighbor who tried to prevent them from having chickens in their yard.

You may have heard the term sustainability in the context of the food supply and healthy living in the past few years but didn’t quite know what it meant. But Boston, Massachusetts-based RD-in-training and organic animal and vegetable farmer Diana Rodgers from SustainableDish.com has made it her personal mission to spread the word about how to attain optimal health is by focusing on nutritious and delicious eating with humanely-raised animals, organic vegetables, and being willing to get your hands a little dirty to reconnect with your food again. She’s written a fabulous new book about this topic entitled The Homegrown Paleo Cookbook: Over 100 Delicious, Gluten-Free, Farm-to-Table Recipes, and a Complete Guide to Growing Your Own Healthy Food.

Listen in as Jimmy and Diana talk about her current farming life, her course work getting her registered dietitian education, how giving nutrition advice out to clients required her to become an RD, her extensive questionnaire for new clients, the depressing state of nutrition for patients in hospitals, how school cafeterias are trying to make the best food they can with the food they get, the local sourcing of quality foods happening in Minneapolis, MN, the guidelines and budgetary restraints of food sold to schools, the local store in her area that is making to-go meals made out of quality food available, why the original name for the book was going to be Sustainable Paleo, the variety of foods you get from a CSA (even if you don’t know what to do with it), how she’s getting people to take their Paleo diet to the next level (Paleo 2.0), why real food is really the ultimate focus we are trying to get people to embrace, the purpose and value in owning your own bees, the inspiration she’s made on me to get chickens for my backyard, how home gardens and farm animals used to be the norm, how Americans spend less money on food than the rest of the world, the kind of food she feeds her family, how she believes so strongly in eating by the season and locally, the non-diet, community-building things she included in her book, and the games she talks about like Capture The Flag and Chicken *BLEEP* Bingo.

Although the low-carb message has been out there for more than a century, the interpretation of what that looks like on a meal plate and the purpose for eating this way is still one of hot debate today. Unfortunately, many modern-day low-carb dieters make the mistake of including suspicious food items (grains, sugars, fake sweeteners) that wouldn’t be recognized by people in the original low-carb diet days of William Banting while putting all the emphasis of restricting carbohydrates on losing weight. That’s why it’s great to have people like registered dietitian Franziska Spritzler from the “Low Carb Dietitian” blog articulating the use of a real, whole foods-based low-carb lifestyle for the purposes of improving health and beauty. It’s such a different take on the standard use of a low-carb diet that Franziska has put it all together in a brand new book about it entitled The Low Carb Dietitian’s Guide to Health and Beauty: How a Whole-Foods, Low-Carbohydrate Lifestyle Can Help You Look and Feel Better Than Ever.

Listen in as Jimmy and Franziska share about the whole lifestyle that improves health and looks (not just about weight loss), why a whole foods-based diet is critical to making a low-carb diet work well, how saying you can’t eat higher quality food is an invalid excuse, why the Atkins products and other “low-carb” products may not be great for you, who she was trying to reach with the “beauty” part of her book title, why she is proud to be 48 and still look so young, how the Paleo and real food movement have played a major role in shifting low-carb dieters, the concerns about ketosis from dietitians and health professionals, the persistence at promoting whole grains as healthy, how people rationalize eating grains over fat and protein, the illustration of the amount of sugar in the blood vs. the ADA’s idea of healthy amounts of carbohydrates for diabetics to consume, why even whole foods promoted by the Paleo community can be problematic for people with insulin resistance, how people can determine whether a low-carb diet is right for them, why including more salt and fat in your diet is necessary on a low-carb diet, how a low-carb diet can provide benefits even without being ketogenic, the various options that are available for people wanting to eat low-carb, helping people recognize where they are in their carb tolerance, why she still put the calories and nutritional data in her recipes (for those people who obsess over those things), why the sugar substitute issue is still debated, her recommendations to have some of these in small amounts (but not the sugar alcohols like maltitol found in many sugar-free chocolates), how reducing your taste for sweet down will help your health, why she falls down on the side of net carbs vs. total carbohydrates, the importance of getting an adequate fiber intake, how the rest of the world lists fiber separately from total carbohydrates on the nutrition labels, and the ton of recipes she provided in her book.

Throughout the month of February, we will be airing audio footage of most of the lectures shared on the 2014 Low-Carb Cruise. Unfortunately, we had some audio/visual problems that corrupted the video footage and distorted some of the cruise talks. However, we were able to salvage the sound from most of them for you to enjoy all month long. We’d love to have you join us on the 8th Annual Low-Carb Cruise coming up on May 24-31, 2015 sailing aboard the Royal Caribbean Independence of the Seas leaving out of Fort Lauderdale, Florida and going to San Juan, Puerto Rico, Philipsburg, St. Maarten, and Basseterre, St. Kitts. See the full list of guest speakers and lecture titles for this year’s exciting event!

Today’s first featured audio lecture is from husband-wife nutritional health advocates Dr. Jayson and Mira Calton from “Calton Nutrition” who share their perspective on getting all the proper micronutrition into your low-carb diet. Then in the second featured audio lecture we’ll hear from bestselling low-carb cookbook author and Low-Carb Cruise staple speaker Dana Carpender from “Hold The Toast” who always brings a certain pizzazz to the microphone when she shares. DON’T MISS IT! If you want to join hundreds of your fellow low-carb and Paleo friends for a week of fun in the sun, then you can SIGN UP HERE. Hope to see you there!

Throughout the month of February, we will be airing audio footage of most of the lectures shared on the 2014 Low-Carb Cruise.

We’d love to have you join us on the 8th Annual Low-Carb Cruise coming up on May 24-31, 2015 sailing aboard the Royal Caribbean Independence of the Seas leaving out of Fort Lauderdale, Florida and going to San Juan, Puerto Rico, Philipsburg, St. Maarten, and Basseterre, St. Kitts. See the full list of guest speakers and lecture titles for this year’s exciting event!

Today’s first featured audio lecture is from husband-wife nutritional health advocates Dr. Jayson and Mira Calton from “Calton Nutrition” who share their perspective on getting all the proper micronutrition into your low-carb diet. Then in the second featured audio lecture we’ll hear from bestselling low-carb cookbook author and Low-Carb Cruise staple speaker Dana Carpender from “Hold The Toast” who always brings a certain pizzazz to the microphone when she shares. DON’T MISS IT! If you want to join hundreds of your fellow low-carb and Paleo friends for a week of fun in the sun, then you can SIGN UP HERE. Hope to see you there!

Some people seek out celebrity status by bringing attention to themselves to make that happen. But there are a few very special people in the world who have no such desire to become famous and yet that’s exactly what happens to them within the natural course of doing what they love and are passionate about. That certainly describes today’s interview guest Pete Evans, perhaps the most famous TV chef in Australia. He has taken his joy for cooking professionally and combined it with a healthy emphasis on a low-carb, high-fat version of the Paleo diet to help make the people of his country and around the world better off in their weight and health than they’ve ever been before. Now Pete has brought a bit of that Aussie flair to the United States with the release of his new book The Paleo Chef: Quick, Flavorful Paleo Meals for Eating Well.

Listen in as Jimmy and Pete share about how Nora Gedgaudas introduced him to Paleo, his culinary training in the United States, his personal interest in health and nutrition, how Tony Robbins got him excited about healthy living, how being a vegan made his health deteriorate, how going Paleo has helped him and his entire family get healthy, the major shift that will take place in the next five years regarding real food, why he thought about calling his nutritional approach the “Pete Evans Way,” weight normalization is merely the bonus of eating healthy again, the reality of “normal” from mainstream health gurus is far different from what we consider normal, the rise in dietitians embracing this way of eating, the popularity of the Paleo Cafe chain in Australia, his “The Paleo Way” television series that has gone worldwide, why he doesn’t put a ton of science into his presentations, the 10-week program he provides with Nora Gedgaudas, how he “reluctantly” got into being a television chef, food television programs have become a ratings success around the world, how this focus on food is planting seeds in the minds of the next generation, how he funded “The Paleo Way” TV show with his own money with no commitment from any network to air it, his “transition” approach to get families to buy into better food choices, his “I love pasta” story, and so much more. Pete Evans is a superstar celebrity chef in Australia and we’re honored to have him here today on the show.

There are so many amazing people doing great work in the Paleo community using the vast array of skills and talents they’ve been gifted with to spread the message to the mainstream. Two of the most incredible people pushing healthy Paleo living are the adorable husband-wife dynamic duo named Bill Staley and Hayley Mason from PrimalPalate.com. You may remember them from Jimmy’s previous interviews with them about their books Make It Paleo in 2011 and Gather in 2013. Now they’re back with a brand new book in 2015 entitled Make it Paleo II: Over 175 New Grain-Free Recipes for the Primal Palate.

Listen in as Jimmy, Bill, and Hayley talk about how they’ve inspired people to get backyard chickens, the craving for more and more recipes that fit the Paleo template, Bill’s amazing photography for various cookbooks in the community, their new book is what would happen if Make It Paleo and Gather had a baby, the lessons they’ve learned from photographing food by other authors, their famous dog Charley on Instagram, how they set the original mold for making good Paleo cookbooks, how the recipes in the new book are the next step up for people who have been eating Paleo for a while, the involvement of Hayley’s sushi chef and “pretty Paleo” sister Caitlin in the book, why they included safe starch information in their book although not so much in their recipes, Jimmy’s negative experience eating white rice on Paul Jaminet’s Perfect Health Retreat, the dirty dozen and clean fifteen information they included in their book, the funky names of ingredients they learned from the Netflix show The Mind Of A Chef, how they try to incorporate more organ meats into their recipes for getting quality nutrition (while being appealing to the palate), the companies like Epic bars adding in organ meats to their products, their burger with pork belly recipe that will get people to buy in to it, how you can make your own bacon at home in a week, the benefits of having various kinds of meat smokers, the low-carb friendly recipes throughout their new book, their world-famous chocolate-covered bacon recipe, the meal event recommendations they included in the back of the book, what got them interested in getting backyard chickens ten weeks ago (just don’t get baby chicks in January if you live in the north!), the mixed flock of egg-laying chickens, how Diana Rodgers pushed them to get the chickens, and the busybody neighbor who tried to prevent them from having chickens in their yard.

You may have heard the term sustainability in the context of the food supply and healthy living in the past few years but didn’t quite know what it meant. But Boston, Massachusetts-based RD-in-training and organic animal and vegetable farmer Diana Rodgers from SustainableDish.com has made it her personal mission to spread the word about how to attain optimal health is by focusing on nutritious and delicious eating with humanely-raised animals, organic vegetables, and being willing to get your hands a little dirty to reconnect with your food again. She’s written a fabulous new book about this topic entitled The Homegrown Paleo Cookbook: Over 100 Delicious, Gluten-Free, Farm-to-Table Recipes, and a Complete Guide to Growing Your Own Healthy Food.

Listen in as Jimmy and Diana talk about her current farming life, her course work getting her registered dietitian education, how giving nutrition advice out to clients required her to become an RD, her extensive questionnaire for new clients, the depressing state of nutrition for patients in hospitals, how school cafeterias are trying to make the best food they can with the food they get, the local sourcing of quality foods happening in Minneapolis, MN, the guidelines and budgetary restraints of food sold to schools, the local store in her area that is making to-go meals made out of quality food available, why the original name for the book was going to be Sustainable Paleo, the variety of foods you get from a CSA (even if you don’t know what to do with it), how she’s getting people to take their Paleo diet to the next level (Paleo 2.0), why real food is really the ultimate focus we are trying to get people to embrace, the purpose and value in owning your own bees, the inspiration she’s made on me to get chickens for my backyard, how home gardens and farm animals used to be the norm, how Americans spend less money on food than the rest of the world, the kind of food she feeds her family, how she believes so strongly in eating by the season and locally, the non-diet, community-building things she included in her book, and the games she talks about like Capture The Flag and Chicken *BLEEP* Bingo.

Although the low-carb message has been out there for more than a century, the interpretation of what that looks like on a meal plate and the purpose for eating this way is still one of hot debate today. Unfortunately, many modern-day low-carb dieters make the mistake of including suspicious food items (grains, sugars, fake sweeteners) that wouldn’t be recognized by people in the original low-carb diet days of William Banting while putting all the emphasis of restricting carbohydrates on losing weight. That’s why it’s great to have people like registered dietitian Franziska Spritzler from the “Low Carb Dietitian” blog articulating the use of a real, whole foods-based low-carb lifestyle for the purposes of improving health and beauty. It’s such a different take on the standard use of a low-carb diet that Franziska has put it all together in a brand new book about it entitled The Low Carb Dietitian’s Guide to Health and Beauty: How a Whole-Foods, Low-Carbohydrate Lifestyle Can Help You Look and Feel Better Than Ever.

Listen in as Jimmy and Franziska share about the whole lifestyle that improves health and looks (not just about weight loss), why a whole foods-based diet is critical to making a low-carb diet work well, how saying you can’t eat higher quality food is an invalid excuse, why the Atkins products and other “low-carb” products may not be great for you, who she was trying to reach with the “beauty” part of her book title, why she is proud to be 48 and still look so young, how the Paleo and real food movement have played a major role in shifting low-carb dieters, the concerns about ketosis from dietitians and health professionals, the persistence at promoting whole grains as healthy, how people rationalize eating grains over fat and protein, the illustration of the amount of sugar in the blood vs. the ADA’s idea of healthy amounts of carbohydrates for diabetics to consume, why even whole foods promoted by the Paleo community can be problematic for people with insulin resistance, how people can determine whether a low-carb diet is right for them, why including more salt and fat in your diet is necessary on a low-carb diet, how a low-carb diet can provide benefits even without being ketogenic, the various options that are available for people wanting to eat low-carb, helping people recognize where they are in their carb tolerance, why she still put the calories and nutritional data in her recipes (for those people who obsess over those things), why the sugar substitute issue is still debated, her recommendations to have some of these in small amounts (but not the sugar alcohols like maltitol found in many sugar-free chocolates), how reducing your taste for sweet down will help your health, why she falls down on the side of net carbs vs. total carbohydrates, the importance of getting an adequate fiber intake, how the rest of the world lists fiber separately from total carbohydrates on the nutrition labels, and the ton of recipes she provided in her book.

It’s such a different take on the standard use of a low-carb diet that Franziska has put it all together in a brand new book about it entitled The Low Carb Dietitian’s Guide to Health and Beauty: How a Whole-Foods, Low-Carbohydrate Lifestyle Can Help You Look and Feel Better Than Ever.

Listen in as Jimmy and Franziska share about the whole lifestyle that improves health and looks (not just about weight loss), why a whole foods-based diet is critical to making a low-carb diet work well, how saying you can’t eat higher quality food is an invalid excuse, why the Atkins products and other “low-carb” products may not be great for you, who she was trying to reach with the “beauty” part of her book title, why she is proud to be 48 and still look so young, how the Paleo and real food movement have played a major role in shifting low-carb dieters, the concerns about ketosis from dietitians and health professionals, the persistence at promoting whole grains as healthy, how people rationalize eating grains over fat and protein, the illustration of the amount of sugar in the blood vs. the ADA’s idea of healthy amounts of carbohydrates for diabetics to consume, why even whole foods promoted by the Paleo community can be problematic for people with insulin resistance, how people can determine whether a low-carb diet is right for them, why including more salt and fat in your diet is necessary on a low-carb diet, how a low-carb diet can provide benefits even without being ketogenic, the various options that are available for people wanting to eat low-carb, helping people recognize where they are in their carb tolerance, why she still put the calories and nutritional data in her recipes (for those people who obsess over those things), why the sugar substitute issue is still debated, her recommendations to have some of these in small amounts (but not the sugar alcohols like maltitol found in many sugar-free chocolates), how reducing your taste for sweet down will help your health, why she falls down on the side of net carbs vs. total carbohydrates, the importance of getting an adequate fiber intake, how the rest of the world lists fiber separately from total carbohydrates on the nutrition labels, and the ton of recipes she provided in her book.

Some people seek out celebrity status by bringing attention to themselves to make that happen. But there are a few very special people in the world who have no such desire to become famous and yet that’s exactly what happens to them within the natural course of doing what they love and are passionate about. That certainly describes today’s interview guest Pete Evans, perhaps the most famous TV chef in Australia. He has taken his joy for cooking professionally and combined it with a healthy emphasis on a low-carb, high-fat version of the Paleo diet to help make the people of his country and around the world better off in their weight and health than they’ve ever been before. Now Pete has brought a bit of that Aussie flair to the United States with the release of his new book The Paleo Chef: Quick, Flavorful Paleo Meals for Eating Well.

Listen in as Jimmy and Pete share about how Nora Gedgaudas introduced him to Paleo, his culinary training in the United States, his personal interest in health and nutrition, how Tony Robbins got him excited about healthy living, how being a vegan made his health deteriorate, how going Paleo has helped him and his entire family get healthy, the major shift that will take place in the next five years regarding real food, why he thought about calling his nutritional approach the “Pete Evans Way,” weight normalization is merely the bonus of eating healthy again, the reality of “normal” from mainstream health gurus is far different from what we consider normal, the rise in dietitians embracing this way of eating, the popularity of the Paleo Cafe chain in Australia, his “The Paleo Way” television series that has gone worldwide, why he doesn’t put a ton of science into his presentations, the 10-week program he provides with Nora Gedgaudas, how he “reluctantly” got into being a television chef, food television programs have become a ratings success around the world, how this focus on food is planting seeds in the minds of the next generation, how he funded “The Paleo Way” TV show with his own money with no commitment from any network to air it, his “transition” approach to get families to buy into better food choices, his “I love pasta” story, and so much more. Pete Evans is a superstar celebrity chef in Australia and we’re honored to have him here today on the show.

There are so many amazing people doing great work in the Paleo community using the vast array of skills and talents they’ve been gifted with to spread the message to the mainstream. Two of the most incredible people pushing healthy Paleo living are the adorable husband-wife dynamic duo named Bill Staley and Hayley Mason from PrimalPalate.com. You may remember them from Jimmy’s previous interviews with them about their books Make It Paleo in 2011 and Gather in 2013. Now they’re back with a brand new book in 2015 entitled Make it Paleo II: Over 175 New Grain-Free Recipes for the Primal Palate.

Listen in as Jimmy, Bill, and Hayley talk about how they’ve inspired people to get backyard chickens, the craving for more and more recipes that fit the Paleo template, Bill’s amazing photography for various cookbooks in the community, their new book is what would happen if Make It Paleo and Gather had a baby, the lessons they’ve learned from photographing food by other authors, their famous dog Charley on Instagram, how they set the original mold for making good Paleo cookbooks, how the recipes in the new book are the next step up for people who have been eating Paleo for a while, the involvement of Hayley’s sushi chef and “pretty Paleo” sister Caitlin in the book, why they included safe starch information in their book although not so much in their recipes, Jimmy’s negative experience eating white rice on Paul Jaminet’s Perfect Health Retreat, the dirty dozen and clean fifteen information they included in their book, the funky names of ingredients they learned from the Netflix show The Mind Of A Chef, how they try to incorporate more organ meats into their recipes for getting quality nutrition (while being appealing to the palate), the companies like Epic bars adding in organ meats to their products, their burger with pork belly recipe that will get people to buy in to it, how you can make your own bacon at home in a week, the benefits of having various kinds of meat smokers, the low-carb friendly recipes throughout their new book, their world-famous chocolate-covered bacon recipe, the meal event recommendations they included in the back of the book, what got them interested in getting backyard chickens ten weeks ago (just don’t get baby chicks in January if you live in the north!), the mixed flock of egg-laying chickens, how Diana Rodgers pushed them to get the chickens, and the busybody neighbor who tried to prevent them from having chickens in their yard.

You may have heard the term sustainability in the context of the food supply and healthy living in the past few years but didn’t quite know what it meant. But Boston, Massachusetts-based RD-in-training and organic animal and vegetable farmer Diana Rodgers from SustainableDish.com has made it her personal mission to spread the word about how to attain optimal health is by focusing on nutritious and delicious eating with humanely-raised animals, organic vegetables, and being willing to get your hands a little dirty to reconnect with your food again. She’s written a fabulous new book about this topic entitled The Homegrown Paleo Cookbook: Over 100 Delicious, Gluten-Free, Farm-to-Table Recipes, and a Complete Guide to Growing Your Own Healthy Food.

Listen in as Jimmy and Diana talk about her current farming life, her course work getting her registered dietitian education, how giving nutrition advice out to clients required her to become an RD, her extensive questionnaire for new clients, the depressing state of nutrition for patients in hospitals, how school cafeterias are trying to make the best food they can with the food they get, the local sourcing of quality foods happening in Minneapolis, MN, the guidelines and budgetary restraints of food sold to schools, the local store in her area that is making to-go meals made out of quality food available, why the original name for the book was going to be Sustainable Paleo, the variety of foods you get from a CSA (even if you don’t know what to do with it), how she’s getting people to take their Paleo diet to the next level (Paleo 2.0), why real food is really the ultimate focus we are trying to get people to embrace, the purpose and value in owning your own bees, the inspiration she’s made on me to get chickens for my backyard, how home gardens and farm animals used to be the norm, how Americans spend less money on food than the rest of the world, the kind of food she feeds her family, how she believes so strongly in eating by the season and locally, the non-diet, community-building things she included in her book, and the games she talks about like Capture The Flag and Chicken *BLEEP* Bingo.

Although the low-carb message has been out there for more than a century, the interpretation of what that looks like on a meal plate and the purpose for eating this way is still one of hot debate today. Unfortunately, many modern-day low-carb dieters make the mistake of including suspicious food items (grains, sugars, fake sweeteners) that wouldn’t be recognized by people in the original low-carb diet days of William Banting while putting all the emphasis of restricting carbohydrates on losing weight. That’s why it’s great to have people like registered dietitian Franziska Spritzler from the “Low Carb Dietitian” blog articulating the use of a real, whole foods-based low-carb lifestyle for the purposes of improving health and beauty.

Listen in as Jimmy and Diana talk about her current farming life, her course work getting her registered dietitian education, how giving nutrition advice out to clients required her to become an RD, her extensive questionnaire for new clients, the depressing state of nutrition for patients in hospitals, how school cafeterias are trying to make the best food they can with the food they get, the local sourcing of quality foods happening in Minneapolis, MN, the guidelines and budgetary restraints of food sold to schools, the local store in her area that is making to-go meals made out of quality food available, why the original name for the book was going to be Sustainable Paleo, the variety of foods you get from a CSA (even if you don’t know what to do with it), how she’s getting people to take their Paleo diet to the next level (Paleo 2.0), why real food is really the ultimate focus we are trying to get people to embrace, the purpose and value in owning your own bees, the inspiration she’s made on me to get chickens for my backyard, how home gardens and farm animals used to be the norm, how Americans spend less money on food than the rest of the world, the kind of food she feeds her family, how she believes so strongly in eating by the season and locally, the non-diet, community-building things she included in her book, and the games she talks about like Capture The Flag and Chicken *BLEEP* Bingo.

Although the low-carb message has been out there for more than a century, the interpretation of what that looks like on a meal plate and the purpose for eating this way is still one of hot debate today. Unfortunately, many modern-day low-carb dieters make the mistake of including suspicious food items (grains, sugars, fake sweeteners) that wouldn’t be recognized by people in the original low-carb diet days of William Banting while putting all the emphasis of restricting carbohydrates on losing weight. That’s why it’s great to have people like registered dietitian Franziska Spritzler from the “Low Carb Dietitian” blog articulating the use of a real, whole foods-based low-carb lifestyle for the purposes of improving health and beauty. It’s such a different take on the standard use of a low-carb diet that Franziska has put it all together in a brand new book about it entitled The Low Carb Dietitian’s Guide to Health and Beauty: How a Whole-Foods, Low-Carbohydrate Lifestyle Can Help You Look and Feel Better Than Ever.

Listen in as Jimmy and Franziska share about the whole lifestyle that improves health and looks (not just about weight loss), why a whole foods-based diet is critical to making a low-carb diet work well, how saying you can’t eat higher quality food is an invalid excuse, why the Atkins products and other “low-carb” products may not be great for you, who she was trying to reach with the “beauty” part of her book title, why she is proud to be 48 and still look so young, how the Paleo and real food movement have played a major role in shifting low-carb dieters, the concerns about ketosis from dietitians and health professionals, the persistence at promoting whole grains as healthy, how people rationalize eating grains over fat and protein, the illustration of the amount of sugar in the blood vs. the ADA’s idea of healthy amounts of carbohydrates for diabetics to consume, why even whole foods promoted by the Paleo community can be problematic for people with insulin resistance, how people can determine whether a low-carb diet is right for them, why including more salt and fat in your diet is necessary on a low-carb diet, how a low-carb diet can provide benefits even without being ketogenic, the various options that are available for people wanting to eat low-carb, helping people recognize where they are in their carb tolerance, why she still put the calories and nutritional data in her recipes (for those people who obsess over those things), why the sugar substitute issue is still debated, her recommendations to have some of these in small amounts (but not the sugar alcohols like maltitol found in many sugar-free chocolates), how reducing your taste for sweet down will help your health, why she falls down on the side of net carbs vs. total carbohydrates, the importance of getting an adequate fiber intake, how the rest of the world lists fiber separately from total carbohydrates on the nutrition labels, and the ton of recipes she provided in her book.

Some people seek out celebrity status by bringing attention to themselves to make that happen. But there are a few very special people in the world who have no such desire to become famous and yet that’s exactly what happens to them within the natural course of doing what they love and are passionate about. That certainly describes today’s interview guest Pete Evans, perhaps the most famous TV chef in Australia. He has taken his joy for cooking professionally and combined it with a healthy emphasis on a low-carb, high-fat version of the Paleo diet to help make the people of his country and around the world better off in their weight and health than they’ve ever been before. Now Pete has brought a bit of that Aussie flair to the United States with the release of his new book The Paleo Chef: Quick, Flavorful Paleo Meals for Eating Well.

Listen in as Jimmy and Pete share about how Nora Gedgaudas introduced him to Paleo, his culinary training in the United States, his personal interest in health and nutrition, how Tony Robbins got him excited about healthy living, how being a vegan made his health deteriorate, how going Paleo has helped him and his entire family get healthy, the major shift that will take place in the next five years regarding real food, why he thought about calling his nutritional approach the “Pete Evans Way,” weight normalization is merely the bonus of eating healthy again, the reality of “normal” from mainstream health gurus is far different from what we consider normal, the rise in dietitians embracing this way of eating, the popularity of the Paleo Cafe chain in Australia, his “The Paleo Way” television series that has gone worldwide, why he doesn’t put a ton of science into his presentations, the 10-week program he provides with Nora Gedgaudas, how he “reluctantly” got into being a television chef, food television programs have become a ratings success around the world, how this focus on food is planting seeds in the minds of the next generation, how he funded “The Paleo Way” TV show with his own money with no commitment from any network to air it, his “transition” approach to get families to buy into better food choices, his “I love pasta” story, and so much more. Pete Evans is a superstar celebrity chef in Australia and we’re honored to have him here today on the show.

There are so many amazing people doing great work in the Paleo community using the vast array of skills and talents they’ve been gifted with to spread the message to the mainstream. Two of the most incredible people pushing healthy Paleo living are the adorable husband-wife dynamic duo named Bill Staley and Hayley Mason from PrimalPalate.com. You may remember them from Jimmy’s previous interviews with them about their books Make It Paleo in 2011 and Gather in 2013. Now they’re back with a brand new book in 2015 entitled Make it Paleo II: Over 175 New Grain-Free Recipes for the Primal Palate.

Listen in as Jimmy, Bill, and Hayley talk about how they’ve inspired people to get backyard chickens, the craving for more and more recipes that fit the Paleo template, Bill’s amazing photography for various cookbooks in the community, their new book is what would happen if Make It Paleo and Gather had a baby, the lessons they’ve learned from photographing food by other authors, their famous dog Charley on Instagram, how they set the original mold for making good Paleo cookbooks, how the recipes in the new book are the next step up for people who have been eating Paleo for a while, the involvement of Hayley’s sushi chef and “pretty Paleo” sister Caitlin in the book, why they included safe starch information in their book although not so much in their recipes, Jimmy’s negative experience eating white rice on Paul Jaminet’s Perfect Health Retreat, the dirty dozen and clean fifteen information they included in their book, the funky names of ingredients they learned from the Netflix show The Mind Of A Chef, how they try to incorporate more organ meats into their recipes for getting quality nutrition (while being appealing to the palate), the companies like Epic bars adding in organ meats to their products, their burger with pork belly recipe that will get people to buy in to it, how you can make your own bacon at home in a week, the benefits of having various kinds of meat smokers, the low-carb friendly recipes throughout their new book, their world-famous chocolate-covered bacon recipe, the meal event recommendations they included in the back of the book, what got them interested in getting backyard chickens ten weeks ago (just don’t get baby chicks in January if you live in the north!), the mixed flock of egg-laying chickens, how Diana Rodgers pushed them to get the chickens, and the busybody neighbor who tried to prevent them from having chickens in their yard.

You may have heard the term sustainability in the context of the food supply and healthy living in the past few years but didn’t quite know what it meant. But Boston, Massachusetts-based RD-in-training and organic animal and vegetable farmer Diana Rodgers from SustainableDish.com has made it her personal mission to spread the word about how to attain optimal health is by focusing on nutritious and delicious eating with humanely-raised animals, organic vegetables, and being willing to get your hands a little dirty to reconnect with your food again. She’s written a fabulous new book about this topic entitled The Homegrown Paleo Cookbook: Over 100 Delicious, Gluten-Free, Farm-to-Table Recipes, and a Complete Guide to Growing Your Own Healthy Food.

Listen in as Jimmy and Diana talk about her current farming life, her course work getting her registered dietitian education, how giving nutrition advice out to clients required her to become an RD, her extensive questionnaire for new clients, the depressing state of nutrition for patients in hospitals, how school cafeterias are trying to make the best food they can with the food they get, the local sourcing of quality foods happening in Minneapolis, MN, the guidelines and budgetary restraints of food sold to schools, the local store in her area that is making to-go meals made out of quality food available, why the original name for the book was going to be Sustainable Paleo, the variety of foods you get from a CSA (even if you don’t know what to do with it), how she’s getting people to take their Paleo diet to the next level (Paleo 2.0), why real food is really the ultimate focus we are trying to get people to embrace, the purpose and value in owning your own bees, the inspiration she’s made on me to get chickens for my backyard, how home gardens and farm animals used to be the norm, how Americans spend less money on food than the rest of the world, the kind of food she feeds her family, how she believes so strongly in eating by the season and locally, the non-diet, community-building things she included in her book, and the games she talks about like Capture The Flag and Chicken *BLEEP* Bingo.

Listen in as Jimmy, Bill, and Hayley talk about how they’ve inspired people to get backyard chickens, the craving for more and more recipes that fit the Paleo template, Bill’s amazing photography for various cookbooks in the community, their new book is what would happen if Make It Paleo and Gather had a baby, the lessons they’ve learned from photographing food by other authors, their famous dog Charley on Instagram, how they set the original mold for making good Paleo cookbooks, how the recipes in the new book are the next step up for people who have been eating Paleo for a while, the involvement of Hayley’s sushi chef and “pretty Paleo” sister Caitlin in the book, why they included safe starch information in their book although not so much in their recipes, Jimmy’s negative experience eating white rice on Paul Jaminet’s Perfect Health Retreat, the dirty dozen and clean fifteen information they included in their book, the funky names of ingredients they learned from the Netflix show The Mind Of A Chef, how they try to incorporate more organ meats into their recipes for getting quality nutrition (while being appealing to the palate), the companies like Epic bars adding in organ meats to their products, their burger with pork belly recipe that will get people to buy in to it, how you can make your own bacon at home in a week, the benefits of having various kinds of meat smokers, the low-carb friendly recipes throughout their new book, their world-famous chocolate-covered bacon recipe, the meal event recommendations they included in the back of the book, what got them interested in getting backyard chickens ten weeks ago (just don’t get baby chicks in January if you live in the north!), the mixed flock of egg-laying chickens, how Diana Rodgers pushed them to get the chickens, and the busybody neighbor who tried to prevent them from having chickens in their yard.

You may have heard the term sustainability in the context of the food supply and healthy living in the past few years but didn’t quite know what it meant. But Boston, Massachusetts-based RD-in-training and organic animal and vegetable farmer Diana Rodgers from SustainableDish.com has made it her personal mission to spread the word about how to attain optimal health is by focusing on nutritious and delicious eating with humanely-raised animals, organic vegetables, and being willing to get your hands a little dirty to reconnect with your food again. She’s written a fabulous new book about this topic entitled The Homegrown Paleo Cookbook: Over 100 Delicious, Gluten-Free, Farm-to-Table Recipes, and a Complete Guide to Growing Your Own Healthy Food.

Listen in as Jimmy and Diana talk about her current farming life, her course work getting her registered dietitian education, how giving nutrition advice out to clients required her to become an RD, her extensive questionnaire for new clients, the depressing state of nutrition for patients in hospitals, how school cafeterias are trying to make the best food they can with the food they get, the local sourcing of quality foods happening in Minneapolis, MN, the guidelines and budgetary restraints of food sold to schools, the local store in her area that is making to-go meals made out of quality food available, why the original name for the book was going to be Sustainable Paleo, the variety of foods you get from a CSA (even if you don’t know what to do with it), how she’s getting people to take their Paleo diet to the next level (Paleo 2.0), why real food is really the ultimate focus we are trying to get people to embrace, the purpose and value in owning your own bees, the inspiration she’s made on me to get chickens for my backyard, how home gardens and farm animals used to be the norm, how Americans spend less money on food than the rest of the world, the kind of food she feeds her family, how she believes so strongly in eating by the season and locally, the non-diet, community-building things she included in her book, and the games she talks about like Capture The Flag and Chicken *BLEEP* Bingo.

Although the low-carb message has been out there for more than a century, the interpretation of what that looks like on a meal plate and the purpose for eating this way is still one of hot debate today. Unfortunately, many modern-day low-carb dieters make the mistake of including suspicious food items (grains, sugars, fake sweeteners) that wouldn’t be recognized by people in the original low-carb diet days of William Banting while putting all the emphasis of restricting carbohydrates on losing weight. That’s why it’s great to have people like registered dietitian Franziska Spritzler from the “Low Carb Dietitian” blog articulating the use of a real, whole foods-based low-carb lifestyle for the purposes of improving health and beauty. It’s such a different take on the standard use of a low-carb diet that Franziska has put it all together in a brand new book about it entitled The Low Carb Dietitian’s Guide to Health and Beauty: How a Whole-Foods, Low-Carbohydrate Lifestyle Can Help You Look and Feel Better Than Ever.

Listen in as Jimmy and Franziska share about the whole lifestyle that improves health and looks (not just about weight loss), why a whole foods-based diet is critical to making a low-carb diet work well, how saying you can’t eat higher quality food is an invalid excuse, why the Atkins products and other “low-carb” products may not be great for you, who she was trying to reach with the “beauty” part of her book title, why she is proud to be 48 and still look so young, how the Paleo and real food movement have played a major role in shifting low-carb dieters, the concerns about ketosis from dietitians and health professionals, the persistence at promoting whole grains as healthy, how people rationalize eating grains over fat and protein, the illustration of the amount of sugar in the blood vs. the ADA’s idea of healthy amounts of carbohydrates for diabetics to consume, why even whole foods promoted by the Paleo community can be problematic for people with insulin resistance, how people can determine whether a low-carb diet is right for them, why including more salt and fat in your diet is necessary on a low-carb diet, how a low-carb diet can provide benefits even without being ketogenic, the various options that are available for people wanting to eat low-carb, helping people recognize where they are in their carb tolerance, why she still put the calories and nutritional data in her recipes (for those people who obsess over those things), why the sugar substitute issue is still debated, her recommendations to have some of these in small amounts (but not the sugar alcohols like maltitol found in many sugar-free chocolates), how reducing your taste for sweet down will help your health, why she falls down on the side of net carbs vs. total carbohydrates, the importance of getting an adequate fiber intake, how the rest of the world lists fiber separately from total carbohydrates on the nutrition labels, and the ton of recipes she provided in her book.

Some people seek out celebrity status by bringing attention to themselves to make that happen. But there are a few very special people in the world who have no such desire to become famous and yet that’s exactly what happens to them within the natural course of doing what they love and are passionate about. That certainly describes today’s interview guest Pete Evans, perhaps the most famous TV chef in Australia. He has taken his joy for cooking professionally and combined it with a healthy emphasis on a low-carb, high-fat version of the Paleo diet to help make the people of his country and around the world better off in their weight and health than they’ve ever been before. Now Pete has brought a bit of that Aussie flair to the United States with the release of his new book The Paleo Chef: Quick, Flavorful Paleo Meals for Eating Well.

Listen in as Jimmy and Pete share about how Nora Gedgaudas introduced him to Paleo, his culinary training in the United States, his personal interest in health and nutrition, how Tony Robbins got him excited about healthy living, how being a vegan made his health deteriorate, how going Paleo has helped him and his entire family get healthy, the major shift that will take place in the next five years regarding real food, why he thought about calling his nutritional approach the “Pete Evans Way,” weight normalization is merely the bonus of eating healthy again, the reality of “normal” from mainstream health gurus is far different from what we consider normal, the rise in dietitians embracing this way of eating, the popularity of the Paleo Cafe chain in Australia, his “The Paleo Way” television series that has gone worldwide, why he doesn’t put a ton of science into his presentations, the 10-week program he provides with Nora Gedgaudas, how he “reluctantly” got into being a television chef, food television programs have become a ratings success around the world, how this focus on food is planting seeds in the minds of the next generation, how he funded “The Paleo Way” TV show with his own money with no commitment from any network to air it, his “transition” approach to get families to buy into better food choices, his “I love pasta” story, and so much more. Pete Evans is a superstar celebrity chef in Australia and we’re honored to have him here today on the show.

There are so many amazing people doing great work in the Paleo community using the vast array of skills and talents they’ve been gifted with to spread the message to the mainstream. Two of the most incredible people pushing healthy Paleo living are the adorable husband-wife dynamic duo named Bill Staley and Hayley Mason from PrimalPalate.com. You may remember them from Jimmy’s previous interviews with them about their books Make It Paleo in 2011 and Gather in 2013. Now they’re back with a brand new book in 2015 entitled Make it Paleo II: Over 175 New Grain-Free Recipes for the Primal Palate.

Listen in as Jimmy and Pete share about how Nora Gedgaudas introduced him to Paleo, his culinary training in the United States, his personal interest in health and nutrition, how Tony Robbins got him excited about healthy living, how being a vegan made his health deteriorate, how going Paleo has helped him and his entire family get healthy, the major shift that will take place in the next five years regarding real food, why he thought about calling his nutritional approach the “Pete Evans Way,” weight normalization is merely the bonus of eating healthy again, the reality of “normal” from mainstream health gurus is far different from what we consider normal, the rise in dietitians embracing this way of eating, the popularity of the Paleo Cafe chain in Australia, his “The Paleo Way” television series that has gone worldwide, why he doesn’t put a ton of science into his presentations, the 10-week program he provides with Nora Gedgaudas, how he “reluctantly” got into being a television chef, food television programs have become a ratings success around the world, how this focus on food is planting seeds in the minds of the next generation, how he funded “The Paleo Way” TV show with his own money with no commitment from any network to air it, his “transition” approach to get families to buy into better food choices, his “I love pasta” story, and so much more. Pete Evans is a superstar celebrity chef in Australia and we’re honored to have him here today on the show.

There are so many amazing people doing great work in the Paleo community using the vast array of skills and talents they’ve been gifted with to spread the message to the mainstream. Two of the most incredible people pushing healthy Paleo living are the adorable husband-wife dynamic duo named Bill Staley and Hayley Mason from PrimalPalate.com. You may remember them from Jimmy’s previous interviews with them about their books Make It Paleo in 2011 and Gather in 2013. Now they’re back with a brand new book in 2015 entitled Make it Paleo II: Over 175 New Grain-Free Recipes for the Primal Palate.

Listen in as Jimmy, Bill, and Hayley talk about how they’ve inspired people to get backyard chickens, the craving for more and more recipes that fit the Paleo template, Bill’s amazing photography for various cookbooks in the community, their new book is what would happen if Make It Paleo and Gather had a baby, the lessons they’ve learned from photographing food by other authors, their famous dog Charley on Instagram, how they set the original mold for making good Paleo cookbooks, how the recipes in the new book are the next step up for people who have been eating Paleo for a while, the involvement of Hayley’s sushi chef and “pretty Paleo” sister Caitlin in the book, why they included safe starch information in their book although not so much in their recipes, Jimmy’s negative experience eating white rice on Paul Jaminet’s Perfect Health Retreat, the dirty dozen and clean fifteen information they included in their book, the funky names of ingredients they learned from the Netflix show The Mind Of A Chef, how they try to incorporate more organ meats into their recipes for getting quality nutrition (while being appealing to the palate), the companies like Epic bars adding in organ meats to their products, their burger with pork belly recipe that will get people to buy in to it, how you can make your own bacon at home in a week, the benefits of having various kinds of meat smokers, the low-carb friendly recipes throughout their new book, their world-famous chocolate-covered bacon recipe, the meal event recommendations they included in the back of the book, what got them interested in getting backyard chickens ten weeks ago (just don’t get baby chicks in January if you live in the north!), the mixed flock of egg-laying chickens, how Diana Rodgers pushed them to get the chickens, and the busybody neighbor who tried to prevent them from having chickens in their yard.

You may have heard the term sustainability in the context of the food supply and healthy living in the past few years but didn’t quite know what it meant. But Boston, Massachusetts-based RD-in-training and organic animal and vegetable farmer Diana Rodgers from SustainableDish.com has made it her personal mission to spread the word about how to attain optimal health is by focusing on nutritious and delicious eating with humanely-raised animals, organic vegetables, and being willing to get your hands a little dirty to reconnect with your food again. She’s written a fabulous new book about this topic entitled The Homegrown Paleo Cookbook: Over 100 Delicious, Gluten-Free, Farm-to-Table Recipes, and a Complete Guide to Growing Your Own Healthy Food.

Listen in as Jimmy and Diana talk about her current farming life, her course work getting her registered dietitian education, how giving nutrition advice out to clients required her to become an RD, her extensive questionnaire for new clients, the depressing state of nutrition for patients in hospitals, how school cafeterias are trying to make the best food they can with the food they get, the local sourcing of quality foods happening in Minneapolis, MN, the guidelines and budgetary restraints of food sold to schools, the local store in her area that is making to-go meals made out of quality food available, why the original name for the book was going to be Sustainable Paleo, the variety of foods you get from a CSA (even if you don’t know what to do with it), how she’s getting people to take their Paleo diet to the next level (Paleo 2.0), why real food is really the ultimate focus we are trying to get people to embrace, the purpose and value in owning your own bees, the inspiration she’s made on me to get chickens for my backyard, how home gardens and farm animals used to be the norm, how Americans spend less money on food than the rest of the world, the kind of food she feeds her family, how she believes so strongly in eating by the season and locally, the non-diet, community-building things she included in her book, and the games she talks about like Capture The Flag and Chicken *BLEEP* Bingo.

Although the low-carb message has been out there for more than a century, the interpretation of what that looks like on a meal plate and the purpose for eating this way is still one of hot debate today. Unfortunately, many modern-day low-carb dieters make the mistake of including suspicious food items (grains, sugars, fake sweeteners) that wouldn’t be recognized by people in the original low-carb diet days of William Banting while putting all the emphasis of restricting carbohydrates on losing weight. That’s why it’s great to have people like registered dietitian Franziska Spritzler from the “Low Carb Dietitian” blog articulating the use of a real, whole foods-based low-carb lifestyle for the purposes of improving health and beauty. It’s such a different take on the standard use of a low-carb diet that Franziska has put it all together in a brand new book about it entitled The Low Carb Dietitian’s Guide to Health and Beauty: How a Whole-Foods, Low-Carbohydrate Lifestyle Can Help You Look and Feel Better Than Ever.

Listen in as Jimmy and Franziska share about the whole lifestyle that improves health and looks (not just about weight loss), why a whole foods-based diet is critical to making a low-carb diet work well, how saying you can’t eat higher quality food is an invalid excuse, why the Atkins products and other “low-carb” products may not be great for you, who she was trying to reach with the “beauty” part of her book title, why she is proud to be 48 and still look so young, how the Paleo and real food movement have played a major role in shifting low-carb dieters, the concerns about ketosis from dietitians and health professionals, the persistence at promoting whole grains as healthy, how people rationalize eating grains over fat and protein, the illustration of the amount of sugar in the blood vs. the ADA’s idea of healthy amounts of carbohydrates for diabetics to consume, why even whole foods promoted by the Paleo community can be problematic for people with insulin resistance, how people can determine whether a low-carb diet is right for them, why including more salt and fat in your diet is necessary on a low-carb diet, how a low-carb diet can provide benefits even without being ketogenic, the various options that are available for people wanting to eat low-carb, helping people recognize where they are in their carb tolerance, why she still put the calories and nutritional data in her recipes (for those people who obsess over those things), why the sugar substitute issue is still debated, her recommendations to have some of these in small amounts (but not the sugar alcohols like maltitol found in many sugar-free chocolates), how reducing your taste for sweet down will help your health, why she falls down on the side of net carbs vs. total carbohydrates, the importance of getting an adequate fiber intake, how the rest of the world lists fiber separately from total carbohydrates on the nutrition labels, and the ton of recipes she provided in her book.

Throughout the month of February, we will be airing audio footage of most of the lectures shared on the 2014 Low-Carb Cruise.

Today’s first featured audio lecture is from husband-wife nutritional health advocates Dr. Jayson and Mira Calton from “Calton Nutrition” who share their perspective on getting all the proper micronutrition into your low-carb diet. Then in the second featured audio lecture we’ll hear from bestselling low-carb cookbook author and Low-Carb Cruise staple speaker Dana Carpender from “Hold The Toast” who always brings a certain pizzazz to the microphone when she shares.

Some people seek out celebrity status by bringing attention to themselves to make that happen. But there are a few very special people in the world who have no such desire to become famous and yet that’s exactly what happens to them within the natural course of doing what they love and are passionate about. That certainly describes today’s interview guest Pete Evans, perhaps the most famous TV chef in Australia. He has taken his joy for cooking professionally and combined it with a healthy emphasis on a low-carb, high-fat version of the Paleo diet to help make the people of his country and around the world better off in their weight and health than they’ve ever been before. Now Pete has brought a bit of that Aussie flair to the United States with the release of his new book The Paleo Chef: Quick, Flavorful Paleo Meals for Eating Well.

Listen in as Jimmy and Pete share about how Nora Gedgaudas introduced him to Paleo, his culinary training in the United States, his personal interest in health and nutrition, how Tony Robbins got him excited about healthy living, how being a vegan made his health deteriorate, how going Paleo has helped him and his entire family get healthy, the major shift that will take place in the next five years regarding real food, why he thought about calling his nutritional approach the “Pete Evans Way,” weight normalization is merely the bonus of eating healthy again, the reality of “normal” from mainstream health gurus is far different from what we consider normal, the rise in dietitians embracing this way of eating, the popularity of the Paleo Cafe chain in Australia, his “The Paleo Way” television series that has gone worldwide, why he doesn’t put a ton of science into his presentations, the 10-week program he provides with Nora Gedgaudas, how he “reluctantly” got into being a television chef, food television programs have become a ratings success around the world, how this focus on food is planting seeds in the minds of the next generation, how he funded “The Paleo Way” TV show with his own money with no commitment from any network to air it, his “transition” approach to get families to buy into better food choices, his “I love pasta” story, and so much more.

Some people seek out celebrity status by bringing attention to themselves to make that happen. But there are a few very special people in the world who have no such desire to become famous and yet that’s exactly what happens to them within the natural course of doing what they love and are passionate about. That certainly describes today’s interview guest Pete Evans, perhaps the most famous TV chef in Australia. He has taken his joy for cooking professionally and combined it with a healthy emphasis on a low-carb, high-fat version of the Paleo diet to help make the people of his country and around the world better off in their weight and health than they’ve ever been before. Now Pete has brought a bit of that Aussie flair to the United States with the release of his new book The Paleo Chef: Quick, Flavorful Paleo Meals for Eating Well.

Listen in as Jimmy and Pete share about how Nora Gedgaudas introduced him to Paleo, his culinary training in the United States, his personal interest in health and nutrition, how Tony Robbins got him excited about healthy living, how being a vegan made his health deteriorate, how going Paleo has helped him and his entire family get healthy, the major shift that will take place in the next five years regarding real food, why he thought about calling his nutritional approach the “Pete Evans Way,” weight normalization is merely the bonus of eating healthy again, the reality of “normal” from mainstream health gurus is far different from what we consider normal, the rise in dietitians embracing this way of eating, the popularity of the Paleo Cafe chain in Australia, his “The Paleo Way” television series that has gone worldwide, why he doesn’t put a ton of science into his presentations, the 10-week program he provides with Nora Gedgaudas, how he “reluctantly” got into being a television chef, food television programs have become a ratings success around the world, how this focus on food is planting seeds in the minds of the next generation, how he funded “The Paleo Way” TV show with his own money with no commitment from any network to air it, his “transition” approach to get families to buy into better food choices, his “I love pasta” story, and so much more. Pete Evans is a superstar celebrity chef in Australia and we’re honored to have him here today on the show.
