Coffee Talk: Evolutionary Biology, Food Hangovers & Conscious Parenting – #439

Why you should listen –

Imagine you haven’t had any coffee for 25 years and then one day, you sit down with Dave Asprey at the Bulletproof Alpha Lab, blend up a cup of Bulletproof Coffee, sip said coffee, and let the conversation flow. For Eric Edmeades, founder of WildFit and one of the true pioneers of the coming food revolution, that’s exactly how this podcast went down – live on Vancouver Island. Along with Gordy Bal, serial entrepreneur and founder of the Conscious Thought Revolution (, this lively, three-way discussion touches upon food hangovers, preconditioning hunger hormones, and the downsides and surprising upsides of GMOs. From evolutionary biology, to the importance of raising conscious children, to the true value of polyphenols, this coffee-charged conversation is worth a listen!
