    Judith D. Schwartz on Reconnecting with & Repairing the Earth in the Fight Against Climate Change

    02/02/2021 Duração: 52min

    2020 was a year full of devastating news, but author, Judith Schwartz, has a grassroots response to evolving crises, an antidote to despair if you will.   She calls it Earth repair, taking this tremendous sense of agency and using it to come together and heal our landscapes and seascapes.   In the latest episode of the Sustainable Dish Podcast, James Connolly interviews Judith where they discuss large scale strategies for restoring soils, vegetation, and even food forest systems – in regions previously plagued by drought, desertification, famine, and poverty – that not only improve food security, economic security, and heal frayed social fabrics, they also increase rainfall, groundwater, and both carbon sequestration and water storage capacities in the landscape.   They discuss her previous books, Cows Save the Planet and Water in Plain Sight: Hope for a Thirsty World, and also her latest book, The Reindeer Chronicles, which documents large-scale ecological restoration projects in China, Saudi Arabia, Spain,

    Pressure Cooker: Why Home cooking Won’t Solve Our Problems and What We Can Do About It

    21/01/2021 Duração: 01h03min

    “Not everyone agrees about how to reform the food system and restore the nation’s health, but one message often rises above the din: We need to get back in the kitchen. From celebrity chefs to home cooks, lots of people seem to have the feeling that our country has lost its way and that returning to the dinner table will get us back to healthy kids and strong families. It’s an alluring message.”   This is the conundrum that Pressure Cooker: Why Home Cooking Won’t Solve Our Problems and What We Can Do About It explores through a granular look at how many of us navigate the daily task of keeping ourselves fed.    Authors Sarah Bowen, Joslyn Brenton, and Sinnikka Elliot -- a trio of sociology professors from universities across the US -- conducted a variety of interviews between February 2012 and March 2013 with female primary caregivers to learn more about how eating plays out in their households.    Then, between April and December 2013, the authors took an immersive approach and entrenched themselves with the

    Ede Fox, The Black Carnivore, on reclaiming health & food justice with a meat-inclusive diet

    06/01/2021 Duração: 53min

    In today's episode of The Sustainable Dish, I chat with Ede Fox, aka The Black Carnivore.   We talk about how she reclaimed her health with a carnivore or meat-based diet and her creation of an inclusive space for black people and people of color to learn about the carnivore diet, health, and nutrition. We dive into the underlying injustices of a meat-free or less meat diet, how food justice includes access to nutrient-dense foods like meat, and what we can do to help encourage more people to advocate for a meat-inclusive diet.   If you're curious about the carnivore diet and how it can be an effective therapy, how diet recommendations for a particular region of people often don't acknowledge systemic injustice of those regions, or how you can get explore the carnivore diet and get involved with the Black Carnivore community, give this episode a listen.   Find Ede online on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, and The Black Carnivore Podcast, and if you're new to carnivore, check out her coaching services h

    24/12/2020 Duração: 47min

    My co-producer of Sacred Cow, James Connolly, chats with Benjamin Lorr, author of the #1 Best Seller, "The Secret Life of Groceries: The Dark Miracle of the American Supermarket."   They discuss our current food system in the context of his latest book. What began as an interest in the unique success of Trader Joe's evolved into an immersion into the trucking industry and why they call their job "sharecropping on wheels," what it takes to bring a product to shelves, the abuse within fishing industries, how our status has tentacles in our consumption of material goods, the foods we eat, and the information we learn, and more.   It's a conversation that just might change your perspective towards your grocery shopping experience and question your consumption.   Be sure to check out Benjamin on his website and read his books "The Secret Life of Groceries: The Dark Miracle of the American Supermarket" and "Hell-Bent: Obsession, Pain, and the Search for Something Like Transcendence in Competitive Yoga."   This epis

    We often hear from farmers and ranchers after they've realized their dream operation, but rarely do we hear from them in those first steps, in the infancy of making their dream a reality.   In today's episode of the Sustainable Dish Podcast, I chat with Rachael and James Stewart about their journey from fitness trainers to farmers in Douglas, Arizona.   What began as a means to invest at the onset of the pandemic, blossomed into a plan to develop Southwest Black Ranchers, a food distributor that ships directly to families and restaurants, with two goals: feed 1,000 people every month and increase Black representation in agriculture.   We discuss how their dream began, their backgrounds in fitness, why real meat is healthier and more accessible than fake meat, their learning experiences thus far, and their plans for the future. We also talk about how many farmers that we see or hear about don't often share the hard work, money, and sacrifice that has helped many farmers get started and how we can create more r

    Steve Apfelbaum on ecosystem restoration, researching good livestock grazing, and carbon credit markets

    18/11/2020 Duração: 46min

    There is a lot of talk about restoring ecosystems through agriculture to address a long list of issues like climate change, the loss of wildlife habitat, water quality, and historically low farm incomes. But what does that effort really look like? Unless you earn a degree in ecosystem sciences, most of us are only equipped with basic high school biology, giving us a limited understanding of some of these concepts.   In this episode, Steve Apfelbaum, the senior ecologist at Applied Ecological Services (AES), an ecological sciences and restoration firm in the US tells us about his work that focuses on ecosystem restoration and land management, putting back into the land what was taken from the land like healthy soil as well as plant and animal communities.   This episode is brought to you by Blue Nest Beef. There’s a lot of choices for “better” beef out there and the folks at Blue Nest Beef are grassfed pioneers who’ve perfected all the steps it takes to make better beef even better.
