Your Free Pass To Watch Me In A Groundbreaking New Psychedelics Docuseries
If you've been following me, you know that I have strong—and admittedly, potentially controversial—feelings about psychedelics, and it's a subject I've explored in depth (check out this article, this podcast, and Chapter 5 of my book Boundless for more). My personal belief is that, when used responsibly, psychedelics can have profound physical and mental benefits…
…which is why I was stoked to be asked to be part of a new 9-part online docuseries featuring the world's top research and mental health experts talking about psychedelics. Psychedelics Revealed just opened registration for the world premiere of this fascinating, information-packed production. The first episode airs on July 27th, and for a limited time, you can watch the entire series for free when you claim your seat here.
My entire philosophy on optimal health is based on marrying ancestral wisdom and modern science, and the use of psychedelics goes back to the ancient Greeks and possibly even earlier than that. There's been a massive amount of research done on psychedelics since then, and shockingly (or perhaps not-so-shockingly) much of what's been found has not been released to the public…until now.
In my interview for the docuseries, I even talk about the role of psychedelics in strengthening my family—and my marriage. Psychedelics Revealed will only be available for free for a limited time, though, so if you want to watch, register today.
This Melt-In-Your-Mouth Rib Rack Is Worth An Early Wakeup
A while back, I got my hands on a big ol' Belcampo pasture-raised pork rib rack, and decided to give it the all-day treatment. Now that grilling season is in full swing, I thought I'd share what I did…and the delicious results.
Then at 3 pm, I gave it a good rubdown with sea salt and curry powder, and put it in the Traeger Grill at 165°F on super smoke mode for the next 3 hours. At 6 pm, I turned up the heat on the Traeger to 350°F, and by 7 pm the internal temp read 140°F.
Throughout the cooking process, I sprayed the rack with red wine, apple cider vinegar, and syrup every 30 minutes. I then pulled it and, to let the juices settle inside (that’s key), rested it for 15 minutes, and drenched it in Primal Kitchen's BBQ sauce.
This is perfect over a bed of sauerkraut…melt-in-your-mouth dripping in pork fat. Yum.
How about anybody else? Any favorite pork or smoker recipes?

::: Save 15% On My Favorite CBD Oil For Sleep & Stress :::
You already know that quality sleep and a low level of stress are beyond important for maintaining good health. But life happens, and most of us need a little boost to get those extra hours of deep sleep and to keep stress and tension at bay. My favorite tool for improving sleep quality and managing excess daily stress is Full Spectrum CBD Oil.
This form of CBD has powerful effects on sleep, improving both the quality and length of time that we are in a deep sleep state. CBD also causes positive changes in blood flow regions of the brain associated with stress and anxiety.
The challenge is that there are now countless CBD oil options out there. As far as brands, I can't recommend Element Health Full Spectrum CBD Oil enough for deep sleep and a calm, steady mind and body.

People often have a love-hate relationship with energy bars.
On one hand, they’re a convenient, on-the-go snack that can prevent hangry breakdowns. But they can also taste like cardboard, be loaded with sugar, and end up a pile of goo in your backpack.
The Kion Bar is different.
It’s a whole-food energy bar with a chocolatey flavor and nutty texture, 11g of satiating protein, and solid nutrition for any activity.
With a balanced ratio of macronutrients and a dash of honey, the Kion Bar keeps you satisfied and ready to tackle whatever life throws at you. Grab it for a quick breakfast, afternoon snack, or epic adventure fuel.
You can get your own Kion Bars by clicking here (save 20% off your first order with code: BGF20).
