Sustainable Dish Podcast

We’ve reached the final episode of the Sustainable Dish podcast, and I am joined by my friend Robb Wolf to help me close it out.

During this casual conversation, we look back on how our ideologies and priorities have changed over the years - from the time of a dogmatic approach to Paleo to now when we are better able to incorporate nuance when it’s needed.

And it wouldn’t be a conversation with Robb if we didn’t debunk the latest study vilifying meat. The latest study from Harvard finds a correlation between red meat consumption and type 2 diabetes. Like other epidemiological studies before it, this, too falls apart once you start digging into the data.

The chat concludes with an update from Robb about what’s in the future for LMNT. And I report the latest news from GFJA.

It’s no secret that our food system is broken. Food production has been consolidated and corporatized, leading to the illusion of choice and abundance. The reality is a landscape of nutrient-poor, ultra-processed convenience food. As a nation, we are overfed, and undernourished, and “lifestyle” diseases are compromising our health and happiness. 

On today’s show, my co-host, James Connolly, sits down for an in-depth conversation with Jennifer Stojkovic. Jennifer is a food-tech leader, founder of Vegan Women Summit (VWS), and author of The Future of Food is Female.

That’s right - Jennifer advocates for plant-based eating! 

She is also passionate about tapping into the potential of women to change the food system. Her book, The Future of Food is Female, features women who are using their expertise and wisdom to change the food industry.

Listen to this episode with an open mind. While I don’t wholeheartedly agree with everything Jennifer states during the conversation, she hits on many of the same points we’ve discussed in previous episodes. 

It’s time to see past our differences and look for common ground. 

James and Jennifer dive into a nuanced and respectful discussion around many hot-button issues plaguing the current food environment.

Will Harris, owner of White Oak Pastures, has been a guest on Sustainable Dish many times. This time, he is joined by his daughters, Jenni and Jodi. They are part of the 5th generation in this 6-generation family farm in Bluffton, Georgia. They’ve helped turn White Oak into more than a farm but a tourist destination.

On this episode of the show, I chat with the Harris Family about how White Oak Pastures has evolved over the years and revitalized the town of Bluffton. Not only do they ship their high-quality meat all over the US, but they also offer:

  • Home goods made from byproducts from their herds, 

  • Workshops and educational events for those who want to learn more about regen ag 

  • A full-scale restaurant that serves 3 meals a day, 7 days a week, featuring ingredients fresh from the farm

  • And an RV park and cabin rentals so you can see it all for yourself

Will latest project is his book, A Bold Return to Giving a Damn: One Farm, Six Generations in the Future of Food. It’s out now!

I am asking my community to go out and get the book immediately. First-week sales are critical in helping a book get on bestseller lists. This is not simple for the accolades. When a book is distinguished on these lists, it brings the media, which means more attention to the regenerative agriculture movement. Let’s work together to get the word out.

Then, come back and listen in while I chat with Will, Jenni, and Jodi.

Gareth Wyn Jones is a hill farmer in Wales and a passionate advocate for grazing livestock as a means for environment and human health.

Gareth’s family has been grateful stewards of the land for 375 years, growing produce and raising livestock. He has been using his media presence to provide honest information about farming in hopes of sending the message that livestock is not the primary source of our environmental woes. 

He acknowledges the divide between urban and rural and the loss of our connection to the land. The divide creates the opportunity for people to be easily misguided and misled by the people in power. 

Gareth’s message is for people to come together and “build a better world on our bellies.” Listen in and get inspired by Gareth’s message.
