Try The Tasty Paw Paw – The Raw Food Health Podcast Episode 27

Saturday, August 3rd, 2013
Paw Paw Festival

It’s Paw Paw Season!

There’s a delicious fruit coming into season that might be growing in your back yard, but virtually no one knows about it – Allow me to introduce you to the Paw Paw. 

The Paw Paw kept Lewis and Clark’s expedition from starving, and fed the early settlers of the United States.

It was a favorite desert of George Washington, distracted entire regiments (who preferred chowing down in orchards to to fighting) during the Civil War, and was incorporated into the managed food forests of the Native Americans.

Since the industrial agriculture and transportation system took over, though, food has strayed from its local roots, and outside of its native range, the paw paw has been mostly forgotten.

In episode 27 of the Raw Food Health Podcast, we’ll talk to Chris Chmiel, a paw paw farmer who founded the Ohio Paw Paw Festival, and now seeks to get this fruit a bit of well-deserved attention.

We talk about the paw paw, foraging for it in the wild for fun and profit, the Ohio Paw Paw Festival, and how you can get your hands on some paw paws if you live outside of its usual haunts.

Correction:

In the show I say Chris’ Farm is in Athens County Georgia. It is actually in Athens County Ohio

Why Vegans Have Weak Bones

Wednesday, April 10th, 2013

The dominant narrative in nutrition is that osteoporosis is mostly created by too much consumption of acidic meat, dairy, and eggs. There’s data to support this idea, such as the excretion of calcium in the urine following animal-protein-rich meals, and the fact that the countries with the highest dairy consumption have the highest risk of hip fractures.

But if eating animal foods weakens your bones, why do vegans often experience more bone fractures than omnivores?

In episode 22 of the Raw Food Health Podcast we talk about why studies are finding higher fracture rates in vegans, the cause, and what you can do to ensure your bones stay healthy for life.

Also in this episode

1) Update on Andrew’s strength training and fasting recovery.
2) The need for physical exercise
3) Do Carmelita bananas really taste better?

Show Notes:

1) The three causes of raw food diet insomnia.

Monday, March 18th, 2013

ADD, learning disorders, and dozens of other neurological problems have become rampant in children over the last few decades as their bodies have grown fat and failed to develop strength and balance.

Why? A perfect storm of brain-altering electronics, lack of outdoor play and exercise, fewer decision-making opportunities, worsening diets, and other lifestyle changes have played a huge role.

I episode 21 of the Raw Food Health Podcast we explore some of the interesting data on learning and physical activity.

2) How to avoid overeating on fruit.
