The Model Health Show

The sourcing of our food matters on a profound level, but in our culture, unfortunately, many of us are disconnected from this process. We live in a society that is full of fast-food drive-thrus, and with just a few clicks of a button, we can literally have food delivered to our doors. Especially when it comes to meat, there is a vast variety of quality and sourcing. Many folks don’t know the difference between a drive-thru burger and a grass-fed burger, and even some of the most health-conscious consumers can have confusion and overwhelm about the best way to eat. 

In his new book and film, The Sacred Cow, Robb Wolf aims to answer the question: how can we source our food in a way that is ethical, sustainable, and health-promoting? On today’s show, Robb is back The Model Health Show to share some eye-opening insights on regenerative agriculture and the future of farming. 

This episode contains important conversations about global warming, meat replacements, and the centralization of our food system. You’re going to learn about how an animal-inclusive food system is actually the most ethical, environmentally friendly, and health-promoting diet available. No matter what your diet preference or paradigm is, there are important takeaways from this conversation that I hope you’ll contemplate. So please enjoy this conversation with my friend, Robb Wolf!
