How are your food prep and cooking skills looking?
When it comes to growing, preparing and storing our own food, life skills that our ancestors considered critical to survival are being lost to time.
But these survival skills are too important to lose.
So, if you’re looking to save time and money in the kitchen by getting back to your roots, we have the show for you.
Today we’re here with the wonderful Hilary Boynton, an author, certified holistic health counselor and multi-talented mother of 5. Hilary is also a Weston A. Price chapter leader, runs several local food co-ops, helped to open a farm-to-table restaurant in Massachusetts and teaches cooking classes out of her home in California.
You’re going to dig this show with Hilary, we’re chatting about:
- The benefits of bone broth, fermented foods, raw foods, and using the whole animal nose-to-tail
- What to do if you’re a kitchen newbie
- The gut-brain connection and the importance of diversity in our microbiomes
- Surprising results from putting a glucose monitor on a high schooler
- And tons more…
Let’s go hang out with Hilary.
Where To Find Hilary Boynton
Right now they have Sol Boxes—spelled S-O-L—over at www.MySolBox.com. SOL stands for School Of Lunch.
And they’re delivering farm fresh foods with meal plans, direct to you, with very minimal waste. Things are not packaged in a million different things, and they’re really about empowering people with fat boxes that have healthy fats and stuff like that.
Right now they’re doing lunch boxes, where they’re distributing boxes throughout L.A. to school children. It’s a lunch box, and you have everything you need to make 5 easy, simple lunches and it’s meant to empower kids in the kitchen.
Hilary points out that because parents are totally overwhelmed with everything right now, it can help to get kids cooking and start the conversations. And MySolBox is designed to help with that.
And then, she’s also doing a know your farmer, know your food sort of Instagram Live thing where people can start to connect with the people behind their food to make it more sustainable.
You can see a list of important links to Hilary’s work right here on LinkTree.
We get sent books all the time, and you can tell that some of them were created by people who have never even tried those recipes, and you can tell the ones that have a lot of heart in them, a lot of soul, a lot of intention, and this falls into the latter category, I’m a big fan.
The recipes in her book are traditional, they’ve been around, with a little modern day twist. And they’re really meant to be kind of coming from ancestral wisdom, if you will.
Before You Go…
Here’s a review of Fat-Burning Man that came in from Sambonyy on iTunes, who says…
I am so so thankful to have found this show! It led me to the book I rave about to all of my family and friends, The Wild Diet.
The mindset, principles, and tips in this book helped me to lose that stubborn 20 pounds and keep it off.
I couldn’t believe how simple and easy it was. I’m not only impressed with the physical results, but the mental results from the tips in this podcast.
At a time when my job had been very stressful, I’ve realized how important my diet and exercise is when it comes to focus.
I can’t even begin to explain the mental clarity I feel day to day. I feel like I have the upper hand or unfair advantage to everyone else by being “in the know” from all of the “underground” leaders in health who come on this show and blow my mind.
Lastly, my favorite part is that the cravings are gone!! I look forward to eating veggies and REAL food, and I’m inspired to cook more, know that I can eat really, REALLY delicious things and not feel guilty.
I highly recommend you tune in and get on this bacon train with me!
Sambonyy, that’s an amazing, amazing note. This totally made my day.
Thank you for riding the bacon train with us, and for your words about The Wild Diet, as well as your sincere review here.
It really makes a big difference. And this show spreads because of word of mouth from people like you, so we really appreciate it.
And when it comes to the underground leaders in health, it does certainly feel like that these days, doesn’t it?
But we all need to help get each other’s back and support each other.
So if there are other people you’d like to see on this show, or if you’d just like to get in touch, drop me a line.
You can also leave a review wherever you’re watching this show or listening to it.
And if you’d like to help support us, go to fatburningman.com, you can check out our store, we’ve got a tip jar. I give away my best-selling book of humor and satire, Designer Babies Still Get Scabies, as an e-book and an audio book when you sign up for our Patreon.
We also have the Fat-Burning Tribe at fatburningtribe.com. That’s our coaching community. We’re coming out with a new app soon.
And finally, if you’re in the U.S. and you’d like to help support us while getting the highest quality nutrients you possibly can, head on over to WildSuperfoods.com.
We recently launched a couple of brand new products, which I really think you’re going to dig.
The first is one of my personal favorites. It’s an adaptogenic herb and nutrient cocktail called Adrenal Stack.
Sometimes, you know, I just finished a really rough week, our truck got eaten up by a bunch of rodents, it’s going to cost thousands of dollars. I recorded 6 interviews in one day, we’ve got a bunch of intros to record, and new shows and trips to plan.
So when life stacks up and it feels like everything’s stacked against you, Adrenal Stack is your best friend.
You’ll be getting 111% of your daily recommended dose of vitamin C, along with a synergistic blend of adaptogenic herbs and nutrients, including American Ginseng, Rhodiola, Ashwagandha, B vitamins, Siberian Ginseng, licorice, and more.
So to try this powerful combo of nutrients and botanicals, a stack of my personal favorites, head on over to WildSuperfoods.com.
And the other product we’re extremely proud of that just launched, getting great feedback already, it’s called Collagen Cocoa.
It’s a bone broth protein sourced from cows raised on pasture, just the way that nature intended. And it’s mixed with high quality cocoa powder, medium chain triglycerides, and just a little bit of stevia for sweetness.
You get a giant container of it, it weighs 1.8 pounds, and lasts, for us, usually more than a month. It depends on how quickly you’re going through it.
But it’s a great source of protein, shelf stable and also works really well in puddings, brownies, gummies and other desserts that we’re coming up with.
Collagen Cocoa from Wild Superfoods is dairy-free, non-GMO, gluten-free, soy-free and guaranteed GMP-compliant.
It’s delicious mixed right in water. I actually like drinking it in hot water a lot of the time with a splash of heavy cream in there to make a little hot cocoa drink.
Especially after my runs and my workouts, it’s great to have that easy and convenient source of protein, whether we’re on the road or at home just hunkering down. It’s great to have around.
And another thing that we’re really excited about, we added the ability for you folks to grab Future Greens as well as Collagen Cocoa and our other products from Wild Superfoods in bundles and 3-packs, and even 6-packs to save even more.
We’re offering those in the next few months. So head on over to WildSuperfoods.com, and we’ll hook you right up.
Every purchase from WildSuperfoods.com and FatBurningMan.com helps to support this show and keep it coming to you, so we really appreciate it now more than ever.
