Many of us know by now how good organ meats are for our health, but we may still find them intimidating or completely foreign to work with! Ashleigh Vanhouten, the author of It Takes Guts, demystifies organ meats. She offers practical tips for not only preparing them but enjoying them. She gives examples of the best-tasting organs to start with (hint: not liver!) and discusses how to draw out (or semi-hide) the unique flavors.
She also explains the superpower benefits of regularly incorporating these foods into our diets. Ashleigh also gives us a sneak peek into some of her favorite recipes, including chocolate blood pudding! Finally, she reminds us how she was once also uncertain about preparing organ meats when Ashleigh got started and encouraged us to get the guts to try them out, as she did!

Before commercial baby formula shortages were a concern, Sally Fallon Morell had concerns about the product sold on supermarket shelves. Sally is the president of The Weston A. Price Foundation and the author of "Nourishing Traditions." Today, Sally discusses why commercial infant formula is problematic for babies' growth and healthy development.
She goes over formula's ingredients, which in many cases include soy, which has an extremely high estrogen content that can interfere with a baby's hormone function. She covers the history of commercial formula and how it has been marketed to parents. She discusses what alternatives parents have (including homemade formula made with raw goat, cow milk, or even meat). And finally, she makes dietary recommendations for couples hoping to nourish their little ones well and those who hope to conceive a baby one day.

We are exposed to exponentially more artificial radiation (non-native electromagnetic frequencies) than any previous generation. How do we protect ourselves? And what can we do to build resilience in the face of this phenomenon? Daniel DeBaun, the co-author of “Radiation Nation: The Fallout of Modern Technology” and the CEO of DefenderShield, has some practical tips for how to go about this.
He reviews studies that have been done that show the harm radiation can cause. He explains EHS, electromagnetic hypersensitivity and why this condition seems to afflict more women than men. He goes over why he’s not a fan of pendants or harmonizers for dealing with EMFs. Instead, he recommends simple switches with our devices and shoring up our health from the inside out.
