I am very blessed to be here today with a guest who has been requested from all over the world, Mr. Joel Salatin. Joel is a self-described “Christian-libertarian-environmentalist-capitalist-lunatic-farmer” who produces beyond-organic meats, which are raised using environmentally responsible, ecologically beneficial and sustainable agriculture.
On today’s show we talk about:
- A few problems with a vegan diet (To the vegan’s out there, earmuffs!)
- Whether or not beyond-organic farming practices are scaleable on a world-wide scale
- Why American food policy is favorable to products that make us fat and sick
- And why there is POOP in your chicken nuggets
Here’s the show.

Before you go, I wanted to let you guys know about a really cool project that we have coming up in the next few weeks. It’s called “The Fat-Burning Chef.” Basically we went out to all of our friends, some of the top bloggers and authors in the cooking space of the Paleo-sphere and beyond and asked if they’d contribute to help build a book of healthy recipes! That’s coming out in the next few weeks, and if you’d like to hear more you can follow me on Facebook, or be sure to sign up for my updates by just entering your email below!

The Joel Salatin podcast was awesome and amazing. So much great information. After I listened, I went to Joel’s farm’s website and found a couple local farms that I will now be buying meat from. Keep up the good work.

Whether you like grains or not as a food source, whole grains have plenty of valuable nutrients as their supply of B vitamins alone is impressive.
Farmer Salatin should really stick to what he knows best and stay far away from giving nutritional tips as his comment about the vegan diet and the lack of EFA’s is worthy of his name, “Lunatic.”
However, the rest of the podcast was great as I just visited my first organic farm last week.
