Join show host and nutritionist Simon Hill as he sits down with doctors, nutritionists, dieticians, athletes and inspiring people challenging the status quo and making positive change in the world. By breaking down the science, and listening to their stories and wisdom, together we can become more mindful and conscious of how we are living and the impact our food choices have on our health, the planet's health and all of those that we share it with. Importantly, in a world where diet has become very divisive Simon has created a safe space to talk about nutrition without judgement. Eat meat or dairy? That's perfectly fine! Contrary to the stereotypical view of vegans, Simon encourages celebration of anyone taking the time to learn more about the food they put other plate. It's not an all or nothing move. While this show is very much about bringing out the knowledge of the wonderful guests it's also good to know you are in good hands - Simon has a Bachelors degree in Physiotherapy, a Masters degree in Nutrition, is Certified in Plant Based Nutrition and is committed to bringing you agenda free information.

    Cell based meat and the future of food with Bruce Friedrich

    Cell based meat and the future of food with Bruce Friedrich

    In Episode 109 I sit down with lawyer and Co-Founder of the Good Food Institute Bruce Friedrich to talk about two solutions to the current problems with our food system: these solutions being plant based meat and cultivated or 'cell-based' meat.

    Specifically we cover:

    • What's wrong with the current food system and how it is impacting human health, planetary health and animal welfare
    • Specifics on climate change, COVID-19, antibiotic resistance, production inefficiencies and food security
    • What plant based and cultivated meats are
    • Specifics related to bio mimicking meat using cells collected via biopsy
    • Where these industries are currently and the projections
    • The companies leading the way in these industries
    • Why major meat companies are investing into this space
    • Barriers to entry
    • When we can expect to see cell based meat on shelf
    • How these types of products are likely to be perceived by customers
    • and much more

    If you're a regular listener you will know I prefer to do these conversations in person. I apologise in advance for slightly tinny audio from Bruce's end - the recording software is a bit hit and miss compared to when you are in the same room! Nonetheless it's certainly not the worst audio I have heard and the information is tremendously insightful.

    Can we say what diet is best for health with David Katz, MD

    Can we say what diet is best for health with David Katz, MD

    In Episode #108 I sit down with Dr David Katz, MD who in my opinion, is one of the greatest voices of clarity in a space of science which let's be frank, is littered with confusion tactics, hidden agendas and bias. This is a great episode which reinforces many of the key principles that I have been sharing with you via social media and on this show for the past 2 + years. It also emphasises the 3 pillars that I look to when making my personal food decisions - the pillar of human health, planetary health and animal welfare.

    In this episode we specifically talk about:

    • Why an infectious disease pandemic may be what we need to take chronic disease more seriously
    • The number one risk factor for chronic disease in developed countries
    • Why debating the little stuff is keeping us from making impact on the big stuff
    • The characteristics of an optimal diet
    • Can we say what the single best diet is
    • The importance of the replacement nutrient in nutrition science
    • The use of strawman diets in nutrition science
    • Should we eat fish? What are the considerations here?
    • Would adding animal products to an optimally planned vegan diet improve one's health
    • and much more

    I really hope you enjoy the show. Of course, if you do, please share your feedback with David and I on social media. The best place to find David is on Twitter - you can also find me on Twitter and Instagram too.

    Below is a few resources that we spoke about in this episode:

    • David's website
    • David's wife's recipes at Cuisinicity
    • David's books - How to Eat & The Truth About Food
    • Why Two Pandemics are better than one

    • My blog 'Sprouting 101' to help you get started. Including specific information on sprouting broccoli sprouts and flaxseeds to help get you going. Flaxseeds are one of my favourites to sprout because it increases their Omega 3 content, which as you are most likely well aware, features in the Plant Proof Food Pyramid.
