‘Farmer’s Footprint’ is a documentary series as well as grassroots movement. Over the last 20 years, we have seen a dramatic change in the demographics of chronic disease in the US.
The epicenter of these epidemics has become the southern states along the Mississippi River. Independent research from private and university laboratories around the world have begun to implicate glyphosate as a primary culprit.
Glyphosate is the active ingredient in the ubiquitous herbicide ‘Round Up’ that has...
Rowe of Venice is the nutritional love child of Rowe Samieian. Diagnosed with autoimmune disorder a few years back and given a no cure prognosis by Western medicine, Rowe took matters into his own (literal) hands and began to study alternative approaches. He consulted and worked with Ayurvedic practitioners, Chinese herbalists, and a combination of Eastern and Western approaches, all of which helped in keeping things under control but none could reduce and completely get rid of this...
"Everything we do is built around an underutilized agricultural product - cascara, or the coffee fruit. Roughly 20 billion pounds of cascara are discarded every year. By removing the cascara from waste streams, we halt many environmental stresses that occur at the origin, creating an actively positive environmental impact."
"We purchase cascara from independent family farms. This allows farmers to monetize everything they produce, insulating them from price...

The FREE GIFT (E-Book) - Is Plastic Making you Fat and Anxious?
Elizabeth, the co-founder of Siren Snacks, began this company through a personal health discovery.
Elizabeth never thought twice about the foods she was eating - she chose what to eat based on taste and convenience. Her relationship with food took an unexpected turn after she was diagnosed with a chronic autoimmune condition several years ago. The news inspired her to take a closer look at the foods I was eating and switch to a plant-based diet free from processed, artificial...
Your favorite protein bar maker just dropped two new products. Ritzfit Nation, I'm excited to introduce you to Hemplete's new 75% Hemp Protein Powder!
Hemplete started like all our favorite foods — at home in the kitchen.
Armed with disappointment in existing products, and even more optimism, we started experimenting. It didn't make sense to the creator of Hemplete, Abe Wolke, that there were no all-natural protein bars with clean ingredients and minimal sugar content, much less no great...

In this episode of The No Diet Podcast I rant about the 3 key differences between Ritzfit and Thrive Market.
Here's what we'll cover:
You'll hear about the emotional differences, NOT the features or benefits.
This is one of the most common questions I receive in my inbox, so I figured I would dive a little deeper.

For those who missed last weeks big news - Paleo brand favorite, Primal Kitchen was acquired by Heinz fo 200 million.
Figure I'd hop on and voice my concerns.
This isn't the first natural product brand acquired by companies who have built empires on the heels of shit food products with shit ingredients.
Over the last few years, we have seen RX Bar (junk) and Epic (fading) get acquired by Kellogg and General Mills.
Ritzfit Nation - have you actually ever noticed an improvement in the...
In this episode of TNDP Charles Barber returns to the show to answer questions about salt. He has a current deal for Ritzfit members for his mineral dense Icelandic Flake Salt, however, we deep dive into other forms of salt.
Also in the episode; we talk everything cane sugar.
A fair amount of companies are using cane sugar in the natural product space to make sure their products don't taste like shit. Talk to me one year ago and I was super anti cane sugar. Here's the deal... there is...
In this episode I answer a DM - Why should I listen to you Ritz?
I recorded this inside my car with a new live program I found. Sound quality isn't the best, but connecting my thoughts to you guys is important to me.
I'm going to start releasing more of these episodes.
Whether or not you can resonate (which most of you will be able to) I want you to understand the place from which I operate.
I'm fighting for small brands and transparency. This stuff is important to me.
Before you do anything please please please listen to Part 1, you won't be pissed.

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.
At Tribalí, they begin with high quality, organic protein from ranchers who raise animals humanely. They grind and season their meats with herbs, spices, veggies, and purées for fresh, honest flavor.
Tribali is committed to real, single-sourced ingredients and a sustainable and transparent supply chain.
Everything they use is raised, grown, or gathered as humanely and as sustainably as possible. To nurture both people and animals, we support practices that prioritize animal welfare....
