Wouldn’t it be nice if you could improve your health in less time? I’m not talking about using quick weight loss strategies and fake detoxes that don’t work. Rather, I’m referring to biohacking your health, or as my guest Ben Greenfield puts it, it’s where you take one thing and make it more powerful or […]

I know what you’re thinking. Why would I bring Dr. Josh Axe on my show if his company is very similar to mine? Despite what most people think, we’re not mortal enemies, as I mention in the episode. It’s actually just the opposite and we have a lot in common, starting with a similar background […]

You may be familiar with detoxes and cleanses. Maybe you’ve even tried one or two. But what if I told you these barely scratched the surface when it comes to detoxifying the body? And because of that, they’re not nearly as effective as they could be. Yet, it is possible to detoxify, as you’ll learn […]

She started out skeptical of keto. But after some convincing, Adee Zukier Cazayoux, CEO and founder of a nutritional coaching company called Working Against Gravity, finally gave it a shot by going through a 90-day trial to test the waters. Less than two months in and she’s eating more calories and has lost 8 pounds […]

Whether you’re new to a ketogenic diet or a seasoned veteran, you probably already know the negative effects that come with eating too many carbs and tons of sugar. But what most don’t realize is those two ingredients aren’t the only things contributing to poor health. Vegetable oils, which are found in far more foods […]

Many women, especially those in perimenopausal and menopausal stages, find that a low-carb ketogenic diet leads to irritability and being “keto crazy,” as Dr. Anna Cabeca so aptly puts it. But does that mean keto is the wrong tool here or that a low-carb diet has a negative effect on women’s hormones? Not exactly. As […]

As a former UFC fighter, Kyle Kingsbury continues to use the same tools he learned from fighting to improve his life. He shares these along with the top lessons fighting taught him and his take on nutrition in this podcast episode. On top of that, Kyle also discusses why he uses himself as a guinea […]

Is it possible to build muscle on keto? Or do you need carbs to do this? And if you don’t really need carbohydrates, what does it take? More fat? Or more protein? As you’ll learn in this podcast episode with Brandon Carter — the self-proclaimed Keto King who’s on a mission of helping people get […]

David Goggins’ story doesn’t start out like most. Growing up, he dealt with an abusive alcoholic father and a mother who had to work 3 jobs just to keep up with the bills. All the while, he struggled in school due to a learning disability. At one point he decided to change his situation by […]

For the last 10-15 years, Diane Sanfilippo, a two-time New York Times best selling author of Practical Paleo and The 21-Day Sugar Detox, has been dubbed The Queen of Paleo, yet she’s been using keto as a tool the entire time. And despite that, she prefers not to be labeled as a paleo or keto […]

Have you ever felt like no matter what you did, including dieting and exercising, your weight still seems to stay the same? Is it possible that your body is locked into a set point that’s no longer reversible, due to age, lifestyle, hormones, or some other factor? And is it true that you can lower […]

You may recognize Dr. David Perlmutter from his wildly successful book, Grain Brain, which made the New York Times — four times I might add, USA Today, Wall Street Journal, and The Globe and Mail’s best sellers list four years ago. But, as Dr. Perlmutter mentions in this podcast episode, a lot can change when […]

Is there a secret to longevity that only centenarians know? Is a glass of wine or whiskey a day really the common denominator to living longer? As you may have guessed, these anecdotal stories of people living past 100 years of age and claiming their drink-a-day habit is at the root of their long lifespan […]

Is it really possible to improve your sleep, skin health, muscle recovery, joint pain, cognitive function, athletic performance, and libido all from using red lights? Or is this another health hoax that sounds way too good to be true? It turns out, after speaking with Scott Nelson, co-founder of Joovv, a company that created an […]

Did you know that the three biggest things that people die from — heart disease, neurodegenerative disease, and cancers — all have one root cause in common? Insulin resistance is at the heart of these issues and so many other chronic health conditions, yet most people are completely unaware of its harmful effects. With so […]

Help! I’m losing my hair on a ketogenic diet. Does that mean I have to stop? Is a carnivore diet better than keto? What happens when you go off keto while traveling? If these questions have been on your mind since starting a ketogenic diet, this podcast episode will finally give you some answers. Alex […]

Do exogenous ketones or MCT oil stop fat burning? Is keto a possibility for wine lovers and drinkers? Is it bad for you to keep going in and out of ketosis? Or does this mess up your metabolism? If these questions sound familiar, it’s because they’re some of the most common ones we’ve seen from […]

He’s on a crusade of fixing people’s health. But he’s doing so in a completely radical way. On top of eliminating carbs, grains, and sugar, Jeff Nobbs, co-founder of paleo and keto-friendly restaurant Kitava and nutrition tracking software Trish.io, warns people of the dangers of vegetable oils and why this often overlooked area could be […]

The Ketogenic Girl, Vanessa Spina, wasn’t always on a high-protein carnivore diet. She actually spent most of her life as a vegetarian. So what changed for her? After struggling with weight gain, low energy, and just feeling generally unwell, she decided to cut both gluten and sugar from her diet and added in fish and […]

Many people don’t realize the amount of stress their body is dealing with on a constant basis. Some admit, isn’t that what 40 is supposed to feel like? But being burned out from juggling too many hats and always feeling tired and anxious should not be the norm. And if it is for you, you’re […]

Does this sound like you? “I’ve been doing keto for a few months now, hitting all of my macros and doing intermittent fasting, yet I’m not making any more progress. What gives?” While the start of your keto journey may have helped you drop a few pounds fairly quickly and boosted your energy, you may […]

Are all additives bad? What about ones found in foods like almond milk? Does stevia, monk fruit, or erythritol really spike your blood sugar levels? Why is it that some people don’t see high ketone numbers even when following a strict keto diet with fasting? I get questions just like these on a daily basis, […]

Measuring your ketone levels when you start a keto diet is a great way to quickly find out when you’re in ketosis or not, but getting caught up on this measurement and forgetting about other health factors is a mistake. Having a high level of ketones floating in your bloodstream doesn’t mean your health is […]

The people you spend the most time with are the ones who influence you the most. That’s great news when those around you have healthy habits and support you in your health journey, but bad news when they don’t. Anyone who’s tried to start a new exercise habit or diet knows how tough it is […]

Only a few years ago, Thomas DeLauer weighed 280 lbs, didn’t know about the ketogenic diet, and was putting his work above everything else in his life. Back then, he had no idea he would go on to lose almost 100 lbs, appear in the cover of multiple health and fitness magazines, grow an uber […]

Now it’s easier than ever to disrupt the internal mechanisms that keep us healthy. We disrupt our circadian rhythm by working long hours and having blue lights on late at night. We harm our metabolism by eating processed foods high in sugar, grains, and trans fats. We increase our stress levels by spending too much […]

Back in 2016, Danny Vega was a carb-fueled powerlifter. He ate and trained according to conventional wisdom, but he started to notice he didn’t feel his best. After his cheat days turned into cheat weekends and his health began to suffer, he decided to ditch conventional advice and try a ketogenic diet. But he didn’t […]

 Hey! I started a YouTube channel! See above for the video version of this podcast and click here to subscribe so you don’t miss out on any other videos I post. When I first switched from a Standard American Diet (SAD) to a paleo diet, my health improved dramatically. My next health upgrade was […]

Sugar is one of the worst foods you can put in your body. It’s also one of the most common ingredients in our food system — lurking in everything from ketchup to protein bars. While the World Health Organization (WHO) recommends the consumption of added sugars should be less than 10% of total energy intake, […]

After “drink more water”, what’s the most popular advice you get when you’re trying to fix any digestive issue? Eat more fiber! It’s common knowledge that eating more fiber will help increase your gut bacteria, and more bacteria will make you healthier, right? Surprisingly, no. Recent evidence points to the contrary: more gut bacteria isn’t […]

After Craig’s wife, Maria, discovered the ketogenic diet and used it to successfully improve her health problems and lose weight, Craig decided to make a change to his own diet: He would eat keto during the week and eat whatever he wanted during the weekend, including his home-brewed beers. This compromise seemed to work at […]

If you’ve ever dabbled in strength training, you’ve probably heard it’s extremely important to eat carbs before and after your training session so you have enough energy to power through your workout and avoid losing mass. That’s true, at least for anyone on a carb-based diet. However, there are people like Luis Villasenor, who has […]

Nora Gedgaudas has been in the nutrition field for decades. At the start of her career, she followed the mainstream low-fat nutrition dogma taught in school at the time, until one summer her views were completely challenged. She realized she had lost 25 pounds in the course of a summer when the only things she […]

When you start a ketogenic diet for the first time, your cells have to learn how to turn fat into ketones, and then use those ketones for fuel. This process is called keto-adaptation or fat-adaptation. During keto-adaptation, your metabolism stops what it’s been doing for years — burning glucose and storing fat — and starts […]

If you’ve ever looked for advice on how to boost your physical performance, increase your endurance, or recover faster, you’ve probably realized most athletes believe that loading up on carbs is the best way to get the job done. That’s why sugary energy drinks and sports gels exist. The sugar is supposed to give you […]

Remember the old-school food pyramid you were taught in school? According to your teacher, mother, and the government, you could achieve optimal health by eating 6 or more servings of grains per day while keeping dairy, meat, fats, and oils at a minimum. That food pyramid has since been quietly retired, but our current nutritional […]

Most people would raise their eyebrows at a fully carnivore diet. The thought of eliminating plants and loading up on red meat goes against what we have been told by our parents, schools, and even the World Health Organization (WHO). However, if you’re following a ketogenic diet, paleo, or any other diet, you can supercharge […]

Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the U.S., according to the CDC. Not so coincidentally, two-thirds of our food consumption now consist of three grains: wheat, rice, and corn. Both the increase in heart disease and grain consumption are products of our modern agricultural system. In the hunter-gatherer era, heart disease was […]

Did you know that 7 out of 10 deaths in the U.S. are due to chronic diseases? A chronic disease is one that lasts three months or longer, such as diabetes, arthritis, and dementia. Not only are chronic conditions killing us faster, they’re emptying our pockets in the process too. According to the National Health […]

In the 80’s, Mark Sisson decided to step away from his career as an elite endurance athlete to focus on pursuing the healthiest possible lifestyle and teaching others how to do the same. This decision took him down a path of new habits that went against everything he had learned in his career, including trading […]

Want to improve your communication skills, eat healthier, optimize your energy, boost your brain power, and sleep better? It’s not rocket science. You don’t need expensive equipment or even a lot of time in the day to improve your health. It all starts with your daily habits and the choices you make, including what you […]

The food choices you make every day directly affect how your body functions. Make the right choices and you’ll thrive. Make the wrong ones and you’ll be sick, tired, and overweight. In the last few decades, we’ve witnessed just how closely our health and food choices are linked. The rise of ultra-processed food-like products has […]

Take a look at this: A post shared by Chris Dufey (@chrisdufey) on Feb 27, 2018 at 6:07pm PST On the left photo, Chris Dufey was in his early 20s, worked as a personal trainer, and felt terrible. He was sluggish, tired, insecure, and his testosterone levels had gone down. On the right, that’s how […]

Just like our food system is designed to encourage poor food choices, our environment is designed to perpetuate harmful movements and postures. Just think about it: Desk jobs are notorious for promoting bad posture, leg swelling, and pain in the low back, neck, and shoulders. Airplane and car seats encourage an unnatural position that causes […]

In 2011, right after leaving a dream job as a journalist, Max Lugavere realized his mother was starting to show early signs of memory loss. Being in between jobs, he was able to accompany her on the quest of figuring out what was happening to her memory.  There was just one problem: Doctor’s couldn’t give […]

You think our waistlines are expanding aggressively by the minute from our broken food system? You’re right, but I have worse news for you. We have a much larger and damaging obesity epidemic that’s harder to spot. In the age of the Internet, individuals are chowing down on the informational equivalent of Snickers bars and Big […]

In the early 1990s, low-fat diets were all the rage. Health institutions recommended trading in fatty foods for “heart-healthy” carbs, and most people did. Despite this low-fat dogma, Chris Bell, today’s guest, went down a different path. Chris is a renowned filmmaker who’s directed and produced the health documentaries Bigger, Stronger, Faster*, Prescription Thugs, and Trophy […]

The human body is a fascinating machine with trillions of moving parts working together 24/7 to keep you healthy. And just like any machine, you have to maintain it or it will break down. One of the keys to keeping your body in tip-top shape is metabolic flexibility. There are two types of fuel your […]

How do you measure your health? Is it by your weight, your blood pressure, your cholesterol profile, or maybe all of them? According to Dr. Brian Lenzkes, there’s one critical health marker you should pay attention to (but probably don’t): insulin sensitivity. Dr. Lenzkes is an internal medicine doctor who focuses on clinical nutrition and […]

If you’ve ever felt underwhelmed with the attention you received at the doctor’s office, you’re not alone. A lightning fast check up has become the norm in traditional healthcare. The 2016 Medscape Physician Compensation Report found that most physicians spend no longer than 13-16 minutes with each patient — and it’s not uncommon for it […]

Before turning into a fitness star and nutritional therapy practitioner, today’s guest, Emily Schromm, struggled with acne and gut problems for years. Growing up, Emily seemed to be doing everything right: she took ulcer medication, acne medication, exercised regularly, and ate a diet full of veggies, protein, whole grains, and full-fat dairy — but neither […]

You have to eat plants to be healthy, right? At least that’s what everyone says. Today’s guest, Ryan Munsey, has a different take on that. Ryan has a degree in food science and human nutrition. He’s also a former fitness model, former bodybuilder, and performance consultant. Yet, last year he turned his back on mainstream nutrition […]

Two years ago, today’s guest put out his first Youtube video about the ketogenic diet with the hope of helping a few people lose weight and get fitter through keto. In this short time, his channel has grown to over 100k subscribers and he has turned into one of the biggest keto influencers, helping hundreds […]

Do you think you can lose 100 pounds in 100 days? Today’s guest, Jimmy Moore, did just that. In his early 30s, Jimmy weighed over 400 pounds and needed respiratory, high-blood pressure, and cholesterol medication. He also drank 16 cans of Coca-Cola per day and loved binging on processed food. He realized he needed to […]

Today’s guest, Ryan Lowery, is the founder of the Applied Science and Performance Institute, where he and his team work with some of the most elite professionals in the world. The ASPI’s research surrounds everything from anti-aging, people with Parkinson’s, alzheimers, and traumatic brain injury, and studying the applications in these areas of the ketogenic […]

Hormonal imbalances affect millions of women in North America, and there’s a simple fix for many of these issues. That simple fix lies within what you’re fuelling your body with. This is something today’s guest, Leanne Vogel, discovered when she stumbled across the ketogenic diet. This lifestyle change ended her 8-year struggle with amenorrhea (missing period), […]

Tip: This post is a bit dense. If you just want to know what I’m eating on a day to day basis, skip to the bottom. I’d suggest reading the whole thing for context though 🙂 If there’s any saying that I try to live by, it would be always learning. This is something that I’ve […]

Without a doubt, the biggest health trend of 2017 is the ketogenic diet. Everyone is looking how to get “keto” for magical health benefits, but I’m here to tell you something different. Ketosis is not healthy. That’s right, I said it. Elevated ketone levels do not equal elevated health levels. A ketogenic diet certainly can […]

Lightspeed travel. Immortality. Drinking a gallon of milk in 30 minutes. These are things that are all seemingly impossible, or at least unable to be achieved in my lifetime. I have new hope. I just conquered an item on this list of impossible feats and have lived to tell my story. I went without coffee […]

Keto is so hot right now. Ketosis is the new kale, paleo, and superfood trend all wrapped up into one. The keto trend is also impressive as it is making a somewhat complicated nutritional approach that provides tons of health benefits something buzz-worthy that is now getting attention.  However, because of the booming growth, everyone […]

Would you like to lose some fat? A ketogenic diet is a pretty good tool to help you reach your goal. You can use exogenous ketones which have been a popular way to help get people into ketosis and comply with the transition from eating carbs to eating fats. Once in ketosis, use real food to stay […]

You’ve been on a short fast, but your mental energy is lagging, your physical performance is struggling and you feel like you need a pick me up. You reach for some exogenous ketones as this is what the benefits of the products claim, but wait! Won’t that kick you out of your fast? Won’t you […]

CrossFit recently wrapped up with their highest participation ever in their CrossFit Open. This time period is when I usually see people climb out of the woodwork to try to figure out all of their chronic (and acute) physical pain. This is also the time where most people demonize CrossFit. This isn’t the fault of […]

I’m writing this while sitting on a chair hurtling through the atmosphere at 600 mph, 40,000 feet above the ground, going somewhere that is not for direct work. Actually, the purpose is entirely contrary to work but to step back and reevaluate the chaos that is my work. Yet, I’m not taking a vacation. I […]

With seeing patients, operating this website, Perfect Keto, pureWOD, Health Fit Business, Movement Providers, all on top of advising a few companies, I need to be as effective and efficient as possible throughout the day just to stay afloat. There has to be a superhuman level of strategy and productivity to keep this juggling act […]

We all probably know coffee as the delicious beverage that we start our day with, but coffee is much more serious than that. I certainly have an addiction. There is proof online here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, and here. And that’s just in the last 24 hours of my Instagram.  […]

We’re nearing the end of the ketosis experiment I started two months ago, so it is time to recap the data and see where we’ve come. Before you piss your pants with excitement, I have some bad news for you.  Unfortunately, last week is the first time that I got a lot of the initial lab […]

Are you making a critical mistake when it comes to ketosis? I’ve been extremely guilty of it in the past.  One of the biggest mistakes for people trying to improve their health is the misconception that a low carbohydrate diet equals a ketogenic diet. Unfortunately, this isn’t the case and could be killing your efforts to […]

Beta…hydro…what? Technical and “science-y” words can be super intimidating, but we’re here to break down one of the top buzz words in the ketogenic diet community — betahydroxybutryate (or BHB). We’ll chat all about what BHB is, why you’d want to use it for energy, and all about side effects and benefits of BHB. WHO […]

What mistakes are you making when it comes to your health? I know I’ve been making plenty. That’s why I’m tracking my data in this recent ketosis experiment that I’m doing. What about you? Most people think that the ketogenic diet is just “low-carb” which leads them to make many mistakes that prevent them from […]

Having high levels of ketones doesn’t mean you’re automatically getting all of the benefits. Luckily, research shows us that there’s an easy way to know if you’re in prime therapeutic mode so you can be confident you’re getting the best results.  Ketosis can already be complicated if you don’t test and figure out what kicks […]

This article will undoubtedly put me in some hot water with some within the paleo scene. Bring it on. After much misinformation, I believe it’s time to come out in defense of dairy. The good news is that I’m going to show you how you can easily test to see, if you can safely tolerate […]

I have to be honest with you. I’ve been making some critical mistakes. I was assuming that I was in ketosis for months but I’m now finding out that isn’t the case. Not even close. I’ve finally hunkered down and have been measuring my ketones the right way and the results have been pretty surprising. […]

There is a funny thing that happens in American culture when you say the word “diet.” People immediately make a few judgements. Either you are trying to lose weight, or there is something mysteriously wrong with you that you need to fix. I don’t buy into either of these assumptions. In my recent posts about […]

The results are in! Here are the results of my ketosis experiment. This post will detail my four-day fast ketosis kickoff period. So… if you think I’m going nuts and wondering why the hell I would fast, well, one, I can assure you I’m not and two, I suggest you read my highly informational article on why I […]

  I’ve already gotten a lot of questions from people on how I’ve been eating while I’m running my ketogenic diet research experiment. The answer? Not that much differently than right now. As I wrote in the original article, I had already been doing about 60% ketogenic diet, and the main differences will be an […]

Why the hell would anyone want to fast?! This is a question I was blasted with when I mentioned recently that I’d been fasting. I’m used to pushback from people when something I do goes against a strongly held paradigm. This time the challenged belief is “humans need to eat every few hours or else […]

At this point, I consider myself pretty immune to what internet trolls say to me. I have a pretty tough skin, usually laugh off nonsensical comments, and carry on with my day. This last time was different.   When checking the social media account for my ketosis supplement company, Perfect Keto, I noticed a rather […]

Truth-be-told, I probably went a little overboard when explaining why I decided to ditch “paleo” . Yeah, I included a lot of words, and one hell of a fancy graph. But…after the article made a few rounds, I realized I was missing something important – I never mentioned my replacements for “paleo.” If you read my last article, […]

Disclaimer: To set the record straight before we get any further, I do not dislike anything “paleo.” Please do not scan through this post, write a negative comment, or send me a scathing email without reading the article in its entirety. If you criticize me blindly, you are reinforcing my point. Ideas can be dangerous. […]

On this episode we’ll be talking about why digital distractions (aka notifications) are the ultimate time vampire. Notifications from digital devices literally suck the lifeblood out of your day. Time to slay these vampires. Imagine these 2 typical scenarios of […]

You have probably heard about the new craze in health foods: bone broth. Strangely enough, this is one of those foods that we had been consuming as humans for a very long time, then recently stopped, now it is a “superfood.” Eating like we are supposed to and have been for a long time is […]

One of the hottest crazes of the last year or so definitely has to be Dave Asprey’s Bulletproof Coffee. Bulletproof Coffee is the practice of buying Mr. Asprey’s specific blend of beans, and mixing them with his specific proprietary supplements and grass-fed butter. But are there any bulletproof coffee benefits? His claim is that this […]

Supplements are sometimes looked at as sacrilege in the paleo template, but that is not how I see them. Essentially, if it can be used for benefit by your body with no negative consequence, you would be a fool to not utilize it. I’m writing a series of blog posts on supplements so people can […]

Creatine gets a bad rap sometimes but is commonly misunderstood. This is why I’ve chosen to write the definitive guide to creatine benefits.

One of the biggest problems patients of mine have when we work with their nutrition is incessant night time hunger and how to stop food cravings. The good news is if you’re looking how to fix late night hunger cravings, it can be a very simple set of solutions.

Well, I started posting “How To” articles with How To Make Your Own Bacon and a lot of people came back to me and told me it changed their entire lives. With unlimited custom bacon at their disposal, people are claiming nothing can hold them back and they are able to now conquer any task […]

For those of you who have read my articles before, you likely know I’m not the biggest proponent of “diets” in general and don’t agree with the overly simplistic view that calories in equal calories out. Things have changed though. I have flip flopped and since come up with the most revolutionary diet of all […]

This post is going to appear to many of you to be very off topic. Great! Why your low back hurts doesn’t seem too “paleo” from the surface. Food and nutrition are excellent, but they don’t encompass entirely what I consider “paleo”, as I’ve stated before. We need to widen our paleo and primal lens from food […]

This is going to be a part in our ongoing “How To DIY” section on the website to help you become craftier not only in the kitchen, but the rest of your life as well! We will be launching a new refresh soon with a dedicated section, but for now enjoy the first post on […]

With the big game day approaching, you better get ready with some big game day recipes! Even if you don’t like football, chances are you’ll be around some type of gathering. We have the half time show, commercials, socializing, and best of all – the snacks. So hey, if you don’t want to enjoy the […]

13% of the US population use Keurig cups or other single cup coffee EACH DAY. It was equally baffling to me the prevalence of single cup coffee use when traveling throughout Europe recently. Every hotel lobby, room and a good portion of restaurants were fully stocked with single cup machines. Old stale (usually flavored) coffee […]

The popular site, BuzzFeed, wrote a pretty great guide on getting started with the paleo diet in the New Year. The guide has a lot of fantastic information for people trying to make positive changes. However, there are some items in the article that I think could use a little help for paleo newbies. Here […]

There are people who eat healthy and enjoy helping others eat healthy, and then there are the paleo police. The paleo police seem ready to jump at any opportunity to throw you into paleo prison if every aspect of your life isn’t like a caveman’s.

It’s always great to see and hear about people striving for proper nutrition and a healthy lifestyle. However, something I will never understand is planning to eat “cheat day meals”.

I’ve been getting a lot of questions since our last post on why raw eggs won’t kill you and why you even need to be eating egg yolks. What is egg yolk nutrition? Are they safe? Healthy? You’ve seen it before: restaurants touting a healthier version of an omelet or breakfast sandwich, made only with […]

When I eat raw eggs, I often get disgusted looks and hear “Gross! Aren’t you worried about getting sick and dying from eating raw eggs?!” No. I’m not. And if by chance I hit the lottery and actually contracted a food borne illness, then actually had symptoms from it, I would deal with a few […]

Many people have heard of magnesium, but what does magnesium do, really? Why should we worry about it? Should we supplement? These are all important questions that we’ll address in this article.

When people think of vitamin D they generally think it does one thing – build bones. It turns out it does much, much more. Vitamin D controls over 1000 processes in your body.

The idea that calories in equal calories out and that counting calories matters will not die, no matter how much evidence and basic science is available to the contrary.

We just wrote a lengthy post on the importance of whey protein. This second guide will cover how to determine the best sources of poultry products: How to buy healthy chickens, eggs and everything in between.
