View this post on Instagram
I'm a sucker for new #icecream #recipes, and for this week's mix, I used the new, addictively flavorful, Peanut Butter Bone Broth Powder from Ancient Nutrition…combined with their chocolate #collagen for frozen chocolate-peanut butter mouthwatering goodness. My recipe is as follows: 5 scoops Peanut Butter #BoneBroth Powder from @ancientnutrition (link in bio) 5 scoops @ancientnutrition Chocolate Collagen Powder (link in bio) 5 teaspoons @swervesweetie Swerve sweetener (link in bio) 5 egg yolks 1 #avocado 2 tablespoons #coconutcream 2 tablespoons #cinnamon 2 teaspoons sea salt 2 tablespoons almond butter Ice and bone broth or #coconutmilk to desired texture Also threw in a link to my company. @kion’s new article in which we dispel common myths about sweeteners, #sugar and the like- and how to enjoy #sweets in a healthy way. (Yes, it’s possible.)
– Brand New “Cheat Sheet” For Knowing Which Vitamins/Supplements To Take
In the podcast episode “How To Test Your Nutritional Status & How To Know Which Supplements To Take: The Ultimate Cheat Sheet,” I filled you in on my friend Chris Masterjohn's Testing Nutritional Status: The Ultimate Cheat Sheet e-book, which distills all of the practical information from the confusing nutrition supplement industry and packs everything you need to know about testing and customizing your supplement regimen all into one, single document so you never need an appointment with Dr. Google or rummage through long articles, podcast transcripts, or endless lists of links. The Cheat Sheet is published as a PDF, Kindle book, and iBook, which allows you to use your favorite devices and apps to read it in your favorite way. It is threaded with links throughout. This makes finding exactly what you need always just one click away.
All of the lab testing required for comprehensive nutritional screening is reduced to a single page, with hyperlinks making ordering any of the tests just one click away. In just five pages, Chris provides full instructions for lab testing, blood pressure, and dietary analysis, as well as an algorithm for quick decisions on what to do next for each marker that may be off. Over 70 pages list the signs and symptoms associated with all the possible nutrient imbalances, the potential causes of nutrient imbalances, and an action plan for correcting each imbalance. To top it off, it ends with an index of the signs and symptoms of nutrient deficiencies and imbalances. The index has 178 entries, and each entry links directly to the sections of the text where those signs and symptoms are discussed. This makes it incredibly easy to browse through the index for the things that seem most interesting or relevant to you and find exactly what you’re looking for without having to read the whole guide.
Anyways, Version 1.2 of the Cheat Sheet just came out last week. Chris has completely overhauled niacin and riboflavin sections as well as added several other very helpful sections. You can click here to get it and use discount code: BEN5 to save 5 bucks.

Featured Product: Kion Clean Energy Bar
As a busy CEO, coach, professional athlete, international speaker, and top 100 podcast host—I needed a bar that would meet the intense demands of my lifestyle, while also satisfying my strict nutrition and purity requirements. I’m happy to say, THIS IS IT.
After years of habitually eating low-quality protein bars, I started having elevated blood sugar, gut rot, energy swings and toxins present in my blood tests. So I wanted to do something better. I wanted to learn how can a bar provide adequate amino acids for recovery without spiking insulin and glucose, or creating mTor and longevity issues from excess protein intake?
You're about to discover exactly how I did it. Meet the Kion Clean Energy Bar.

Operation get skinny guy Ben Greenfield muscle continues…up 10.4 lbs in 2 months. Lots of organ meat, circuit training with heavy weights, intermittent fasting and walking, bone broth, and that wonderful egg yolk ice cream and collagen you can see in my previous post. 20g of @kion aminos a day too. Anybody else out there trying to put on some muscle? Hope those little tips help.

One drawback of #lowcarb / #keto diet is that less insulin is secreted, which can actually cause cells to become resistant to insulin signalling the same way too many carbs can! Here's how to avoid that & reach optimal insulin sensitivity: https://t.co/DiHmNWZyTl
