  • [5:55] Erin must read the book, Extra Virginity. All USA consumers need to learn about the “Sublime and Scandalous World of Olive Oil.” There’s no purity regulations to protect the consumers and a whole lot more that’s going wrong.
  • [12:30] Erin’s funny story on Bone Broth.
  • [15:30] Our toxic bodies and how our taste buds can become desensitized.

  • [22:50] Erin’s use of a False Healthy Halo to explain the improper food marketing that’s happening in our industry. It’s miss-educating consumers and sending us down unhealthy paths while making us think we’re making healthy decisions.
  • [29:15] Blanketed “diets” can be quite unhelpful. We need to adapt and modify them to fit each unique person’s lifestyle.
  • [36:30] How my own father’s heart doctor was incorrectly advising him on healthy heart diets. He was telling him to eat Cheerios vs real, whole, eggs. Eggs provide essential cholesterol that our cells require.

Final Words

Erin’s message, her Golden Nugget, is to keep this super simple. Living a healthy lifestyle takes us time to implement. Don’t expect perfection overnight and don’t expect it at the finish line either, it’s a constant process.
