The Blue Zones have long been touted as holding the secrets to longevity, but one aspect of the “Blue Zones” framework that gets far too much attention is the diet, which emphasizes limiting animal-based foods. 

In reality, there are many factors that go into living a long, high-quality, and meaningful life. Plus, when you start to look at the research behind this movement, it doesn’t hold up to scrutiny.

Today I am sharing my conversation with fellow dietitian and podcaster Erin Skinner, founder of Empowered Nutrition, a functional nutrition practice in North Carolina. She has done extensive research on The Blue Zones and what she found was fascinating.

I recently had the pleasure of appearing on the Realfoodology podcast with Courtney Swan.

Courtney is an integrative nutritionist and “real foodist” with a passion for changing the way America eats. 

Like me, Courtney cares about where food comes from and wants people to eat a nutrient-dense diet - which includes animal-sourced foods. She and I get in deep with the anti-meat narrative and the 3 main topics that drive these discussions: nutrition, ethics, and the environment

The conversation was so good, I just had to share.
