– Anti-Factory Farm Shopping Guide
This comprehensive video series and book are meant for anyone who is interested in transitioning from factory-farmed food to organic and hopefully, one day, biodynamic—but at the same time feels confused by all the labels, and even whether organic food is any better than factory-farmed food. With entertaining illustrations, videos, and very light reading, the “Anti-Factory Farm Shopping Guide” covers the following topics:
- Differences between caged, cage-free, free-range, and pasture-raised meats and eggs…
- How to easily identify genetically-modified foods…
- Why factory-farmed meats cause inflammation…
- The myth of safe pesticides…
- Differences between factory-farmed, organic, and biodynamic fruits and vegetables…
- Why seeing “vegetarian-fed” on a label is actually a bad thing, even if it’s organic…
- Importance of staying away from farmed fish…
- How to source quality water and supplements…
- And much more!
To enhance learning and make it all as simple as possible, this book comes with free video instructions and other extended learning materials. Spend less time reading and more time taking action. Get it on Amazon here.

::: How I'm Eating Liver, Heart, & Kidney On The Go :::
You're probably already well aware of the benefits of “nose-to-tail” eating and organ meat consumption to get the most potent source of nature's multivitamin. Some of the most nutritious organ meats include:
- Liver, considered the most nutrient-rich organ of all, is an excellent source of vitamins A, B2, B3, B5, B6, B9, and B12 (just 4 oz contains 1108% of the RDA) and is also rich in the minerals iron, phosphorous, zinc, copper, and selenium.
- Heart, a concentrated source of CoQ10 (important for cardiovascular health), is also abundant in vitamins A, B12, folate, iron, selenium, phosphorus, and zinc. It's also the #1 food source of copper and is rich in the amino acids glycine and proline which are essential for connective tissue, joint, and digestive health.
- Kidney is one of the best-known food sources of selenium which helps support immunity, blood flow, thyroid function, fertility, and has powerful antioxidant properties. It's also an excellent source of vitamins A, B2, B3, B5, B6, B9, B12 (518% the RDI) and minerals such as phosphorus, zinc, iron, and copper.
So what if you could get all this without actually buying, prepping, chopping, and cooking organ meats?

I'm back in the bowhunting game prepping for a Big Island of Hawaii sheep and pig hunt coming up in March. I'm super lucky to have a flock of wild turkey in my garage for cold, dark winter days in Spokane when I need to practice shooting. This turkey wound up tasting like foam. Weird. What kind of crazy things do YOU get up to in your garage? Any bowhunters out there?
