Listen on iTunes or stream above!

In this episode of ReWild Yourself! podcast, Arthur Haines and I continue our conversation; this time delving into the difference between Food Fads and the Homo sapiens Diet.

Episode breakdown:

  • All diets are fad diets
  • What constitutes a fad diet
  • The issues with the loss of seasonal foods
  • The good side of grains
  • Wild rice benefits
  • Cultivated foods vs. wild foods
  • 4 guidelines for choosing domesticated foods
  • Bitter lettuce over iceburg lettuce
  • How to eat animal foods
  • ReWild your mind 
Domesticated foods tend to be more immuno suppressive and inflammatory. Wild foods tend to me immune supportive and anti-inflammatory.

All fad diets are deficient in medicine.

Meet Arthur

Greetings! My name is Arthur Haines and I’ve been helping people explore human ecology for over 20 years. I’ve done this with the mission of developing deep awareness of and connection to nature, promoting individual health, and fostering self-reliance. Wild food is a passion of mine, and through this, I offer a glimpse of our past and a new picture of our future. Through this knowledge, and many other facets of our shared ancestral lifeways, we can awaken a rewilding of our body, mind, and heart.

I endeavor to share knowledge garnered from this perspective, one that merges the material knowledge of present-day people with the ecological knowledge of ancestral people.
