The problem with most snacking products containing nuts and seeds - they're not soaked and sprouted.
Why is it important to support the companies taking this extensive step in the production of their products?
Sprouted nuts enhance bioavailability of micronutrients, break down potentially inflammatory lectins, and are much easier to digest than conventional nuts.
When dealing with snack products like Gorilly Goods, it's an extreme challenge to achieve the Organic Certification.

During this time,...

In this bonus edition of The No Diet Podcast; James Conolly returns to the show to share his new passion... The education system.
Have you ever wondered where the concept of school came from or why it even exists? How about why we're grouped in grades by age, or why the sound of a bell is allowed to stop us from doing something we might actually enjoy, only to have to go to the next class to learn something stupid like geometry?

Seek was created as a solution. Co-founder Robyn Shapiro always had a close connection to food; her first entry into the business was at the ripe age of 15 when she froze fruit in the middle of the hot Summer and corralled her friends to join her to sell it in Boston's Harvard Square. Years later, motivated by a broken system around Westerners' increasing and unsustainable desire for meat, Robyn was convinced that crickets provided a fresh solution as they provide comparable amounts of...
