Show Supporter: Wild Zora Meat & Veggie Bars 
Wild Zora Meat & Veggie Bar
Alex and I are always looking for nutrient-rich, real food snacks we can enjoy on the go. So we’re thrilled to have Wild Zora as an official sponsor of the podcast. A complete and balanced snack is more than just meat, Wild Zora Meat and Veggie Bars include a balance of grass-fed or naturally raised meats mixed with one serving of certified-organic fruits and veggies. Every bar is super nutrient dense and 100% real food. Go over to WildZora.com to check out all their yummy flavors and stock up on their high-quality snacks.

Megan of GingerNewtrition and Alex have released the new version of the Toxic Home Makeover, along with an 8 week video mini-course that helps you implement all of these changes in a methodical and stress-free manner. Grab your guide and join us over on our Instagram accounts (digprimal and gingernewtrition) for the 30 day Toxic Home Makeover Challenge that we’re posting on every single day in the month of November.

Brittany is taking part in a really amazing and comprehensive Yoga and Nutrition Retreat. If you’re in the Brooklyn, NY area and would love to join, click here to sign up.


Bacon Debate
We discuss the latest news that the World Health Organization has declared bacon and other processed meats as carcinogenic foods. To learn more about this, check out this article. We discuss our preliminary thoughts on the subject and what we choose to take away from this news. For more information about the science behind this, read The Paleo Mom’s article on the matter.


Gluten-Free Bread
We talk about the merits of gluten free bread options (which includes bread, pasta, pizza, etc.) and why we don’t include them in our diets on a regular basis (we talk about cross-reactivity and the immune system).  We also discuss when we DO choose to include these things in our diet and why we make those choices. Lastly, we talk about our favorite non-bread carb options that are equally nutritious.
