Journalist Judith Smelser on the Florida Wine Industry
"A previous episode of the zest we talked all about florida wines wines that are made from fruit that grows in florida and winds that are produced in florida. But that's not exactly what you're talking about today. So when you refer to florida's wind based businesses what exactly deeming well and obviously Florida wineries are wine-based businesses. For sure but i think What a lot of people may not think about is the fact that there are hundreds thousands of people in primarily the hospitality business. But not just that who are primarily concerned in in their careers was line. So we're talking about sommeliers. Wine directors beverage directors. But we're also talking about people who worked for distributors so the people who sell wine to those folks that you buy wine from. We're also talking about retail shops. So the boutique wine shop on your on your local main street You know your favourite wine cellar the guy or gal that you go and ask for recommendations for wines to to take to that special dinner party or just tone to drink on a tuesday night. Those are all folks who work in the wine industry in florida and our wine industry. I think is like in. Most many parts of the country is becoming a more developed as time goes along and as more folks get interested in education in getting certified in through various fine certification bodies in florida. Those are the folks that are in the wind industry that you may not think so much about what you probably interact with them a good bit. That's true and especially in florida. I mean we have so much tourism and people who come here for the restaurants. It's just people are kind of behind the scenes a lot of times. Well yeah and i think you know you. You bring up a great point about the restaurants. As as florida's culinary scene in culinary community has really grown up over the past decade or so so has the wine industry you know at people's Tastes changed and become more sophisticated when it comes to food dining More sophisticated in. Might i say more adventurous. The same is true for wine. You know you have a whole new generation of people young people coming up. Who are really interested in exploring all the nooks and crannies of the wine world. Getting out of the sort of standard organ boredeaux champagne sort of classic categories. Not that there's anything wrong with those. Don't get me wrong. I'll drink a bottle of any of those any day but when it comes to trying to explore a lot of new regions new grapes that you might have never heard of. There's a lot more interest in that and there used to be and that that goes for the whole country but it certainly goes for florida and you know like with some of the things. We might be lagging a little bit behind some of the mora cosmopolitan parts of the country but again as our culinary scene has expanded become more adventurous so has our weinstein an on ride along with it. That's great now obviously took a hit like everything. The pandemic were slowly crawling. Our way out and we can start to see the light at the end of the tunnel. But what have been the effects of the pandemic on florida's wine-based businesses. Well i mean they. They took a huge hit. This podcast on winding back. In march of twenty twenty. When i really just saw and realized the huge impact that the pandemic was going to have online businesses here in orlando and across the state. Of course you know as with with everything in hospitality in the spring in march everything. Shut down everything and wine. Businesses were in a very similar position for a while a two restaurants in that they were still allowed to sell wine to go so bars could could sell bottles of wine. Consult drinks to go if they wanted to to package it. That way on a lot of them did that but you know the difference was with with the bars. They came back a lot. More slowly than the restaurants. Were allowed to reopen. So you know. A lot of bars obviously weren't big into retail And they stayed closed for for quite a long time. Know you saw a lot of them getting quite created and we can talk bit more about that if you want but You know you really did see there for a while. It was very touch and go especially for the businesses that i tend to focus on and cover for the blog and for the podcast are are small. Businesses independently owned Local businesses here in the orlando area. And you know they were. They were hit hard. I mean they want people weren't going out they were. They were doing much of anything. Now the flip side of that and the silver lining of that Was that people were staying home. And they were still allowed to go out and buy supplies so on the retail side. If you if you had a wine shop that was just a retail based business. And i know several around here really saw their business tick up quite a bit during the pandemic because the only people were drinking wine was at home so they actually lost competition from restaurants which was kind of an interesting dynamic that you might not have expected but obviously you know has been a huge hit. I think it's going to take these small businesses especially the ones that are focused on on site consumption like bars. They're gonna take a while to build back up. And i think that's something that we're gonna see for while obviously you know i spoke of the distributors earlier. You know when you talk about behind the scenes those folks are way way behind the scenes but their crucial there are crucial part of the supply chain and so many people that i know in the distribution business got laid off or load some of them have yet to be hired back. So you know. I think it's just one of those things where we had been developing this whole wine-based infrastructure. Which you know it's holding up but it really got strained there for a while.
"Via data a favorite dessert from the ninety s from the nineties. I'll is coming back so we have brought on lead social media manager at mussa to talk us through it. Welcome to the show adam low. I'm so happy to be back and talking about something that's so so near and dear to my heart so for those who do not now explain what is being at us or via neta is Basically an ice cream cake. It's in a loaf shape and it's known for its signature ruffled. Look on the edges The classic one is made simply of vanilla ice cream and chocolate like magic. Shell chocolate And that's that's it. That's it's it's a chocolate and vanilla ice cream cake is the most straightforward and also Infancy way to talk about something that is famous for being quote unquote fancy. So when you say something is is back. Has it been rereleased or is it one of those things where it's like now cool again is being Rerelease after being. I believe it was discontinued sometime in the late nineties Although in my research for this i could not nail down a specific year When it was taken away so Vienna is owned by unilever like the international ice cream. Conglomerate and vienna is has been sold in markets all around the world for years. It's only in the us while most famously in the us that it has seen discontinued for the better part of twenty years. That's awesome was hurt. It's back yes but It's it has been continuously available in the markets this entire time. So why do so. Was this a huge moment online and like who who who was. Who's freaking out about this. Okay everybody was freaking out about. This is the is the most distinct way i can put it. Mostly millennials is. The best is probably the best description. I would refer back to what my colleague john said when she wrote this up She was talking about how this is. This is a desert that was widely available when we were kids and something she mentioned that was also like hundreds of people who are sharing. The story about this is When people saw this in their freezer they knew that they were going to have guests was something you serve. People saw the fact that that everybody remembers it but it's been gone for so long Created dislike nostalgia bomb that went off. The thing is it's like i said it's chocolate vinyl. it's certainly not Some exquisite flavorful creation. It's it's so much in the style of this thing with the way it's the the edges are ruffled and lay it on aso layers of chocolate and vanilla We actually had Sir on ada. From a few years ago we had a post about video that was filmed inside the vienna factory in I think i think it's in portugal. Where it's it's the assembly line basically and it's just the machines shooting ribbons of vanilla ice cream and chocolate and then slicing them Chopping them into the lowest that they get sold in and then packaging them. It's like he's the assembly line of how it's done. That post has in the entire time. I've worked continuously like made people Crazy when they see it everybody sees it and they wanna share somebody else. they're like. Hey remember eating this so yes long way of saying yes. There was a tremendous nostalgia about this. That honestly has been very obvious. This was going to happen whenever they brought the annetta back. So it's really just very surprising that they haven't brought it back before this because the potential for nostalgic marketing in a product. Like this has been there for for all this time. They were saving it for when the world needed at the most.
Surstromming: The World's Smelliest Food
"There are many foods that are considered an acquired taste foods that might not be palatable the first time you try it or something that just doesn't sit right with most people. It could be something as simple as blue cheese or something like the filipino delicacy balut which is a boiled fertilized egg with the embryos still inside sweden has its own acquired tastes delicacy which has spawned hundreds of reaction videos and caused it to be banned by airlines. Learn more about sir strumming. The world smelly food on this episode of everything everywhere. Daily this episode is sponsored by audible dot com. My audiobook recommendation.

He leaves his adoptive home of denmark and embarks on a journey through all five of the nordic countries to discover who these curious tribes are the secrets of their success and most intriguing of all what they think of each other.

Why do all of them hate the swedes. you can get a free one-month trial to audible in two free audiobooks by going to audible trial dot com slash everything everywhere or by clicking on the link in the show notes the word sir strumming in swedish literally means sour fish and that is probably an understatement. More specifically sir strumming is canned fermented herring that in and of itself doesn't sound that bad. There are many fermented foods that we eat and we have no problem with them. Yogurt sauerkraut and kimchi are all fermented foods. And no-one freaks out at the idea of eating them from inflation is an ancient form of food preparation by the breakdown. Food via microorganisms like bacteria and yeast all well and good cover. There's another process of breakdown of food via micro organisms in that is called rotting serse roaming toes the line between fermentation and rotting the history of sir strumming goes back to at least the sixteenth century when we can find the first written mention of the food however the food might be very well older than that as from. It is a pretty old process. The legend of sir strumming holds that it was accidentally created by fishermen who didn't have enough salt to preserve their catch. They use less salt than normal and sold their fish to some locals and finland salt is used to inhibit microbial growth and to stop the fish from rotting. When the fishermen returned they thought the locals would be mad at them for selling them fish. That rotted instead. They love the product and wanted more of it. The fishermen tried the fish themselves and thus stroming was born today sir. Strumming is prepared. In purchasing a can while in the can the fermentation process continues fermentation results in the release of gases which means at the can will often be bulging due to high pressure inside the can the fermentation of the fish in the can result in the single most unique quality of sir strumming the smell in two thousand and two japanese study found it to be the worst smelling food in the world. The smell is so bad that it has become legendary. it's been described as rotten eggs. A dead body a dirty diaper and raw sewage but the truth is there are so few things you can really compare it to because nothing else smells quite so bad. The smell is what's made the product famous. And if it weren't for the smell it would be about as controversial as pickled herring children in sweden have been known to open a can of sir stroming school so they could get out of class. Airlines will not allow people to carry sir strumming on flights because of the high pressure in the can in the low pressure in the cabin the higher pressure differential can result in some cans rupturing spewing the smelly liquid onto the plane and. It isn't as if you can leave a plane while it's flying or open a window most famously in one thousand nine hundred one a landlord. Germany evicted attendant because they spilled a can of sir strumming in the building stairwell german laws. Make it very hard to evict people. When the eviction came to trial the landlords defense consisted of opening up a can in the courtroom. The judge have experienced the overwhelming odor ruled in favor of the landlord. If you search for sir strumming online you'll find dozens and dozens of reaction videos of people opening up the cans and trying to eat the contents. The videos mainly consists of gigging wrenching and sometimes vomiting the problem. According to the sir strumming experts is that they're eating at wrong for starters. You never want to open a canister stroming indoors for reasons which i think of established by now. Ideally you want to open the can when submerged in water that will prevent the liquid inside from spraying all over the place when it's opened alternatively you could open it while it's enclosed in a plastic bag once the liquid has been drain. You don't eat it straight from the can the herring which is put in the can. Hasn't been gutted or deboned. You need to do that. I then the traditional way of meaning it is with a swedish flat bread called tune broad along with potatoes onions and sour cream. It's usually eaten as sort of small sandwich. I've actually had the experience of trying some sir strumming and it really doesn't taste as bad as it smells ranted given that it's the worst smelling food in the world. That's a pretty low bar but it isn't bad so long as it prepared properly if you really want the full sir strumming experience. I'd have to suggest you visit the island of von in sweden's high coast. It is a center of herring fishing and it's considered. The mecca for strumming. August is considered the best season enforcers strumming. Because it's in the middle of the summer. It's also one of the best times to visit ov- on regardless the main day for eating it is the third thursday of august also known as sir strumming day. Which is the day which by royal decree you used to be able to start selling strumming. If you're there you might be able to meet ruben. Matteson who is the self proclaimed king of sir strumming. He was the person who actually served me my first serve strumming one. Is it von back in two thousand fourteen. He was involved in opening a twenty five year old. Ken of sir strumming which was found in an abandoned cabin in norway. Having been outside for a quarter century the can was quite rusted. And due to twenty five years of fermentation it was bulging a lot. The contents of the container were mostly liquid. What solid material. That did come out. Didn't really look anything. Like fish. ruben. Madsen of course aided anyhow
Tips for Cooking Faster and Healthier
"Okay. Let's get to the tips. What's tip number one hit number. One is my favorite one in. Its put it i. It's keeping a cutting board out on the counter. This way. this being wooden cutting board preferably a big wooden cutting board is always ready for you. So to cut a piece of fruit or to cut a vegetable for a snack that way. It saves his step. You don't have to go underneath. Bring out this big wooden cutting board put it on the counter it just a permanent fixture in your kitchen That's good you know. I started keeping my pots and pans on the stove which visually i don't enjoy but it saves me from having to reach under the counter and get them in anything that saves me one step makes me more likely to cook. So that's great. Keep your cutting board on the counter. How about number two Number two is Create flow if you can't in your kitchen called wash chop cook so it's to put your cutting board somewhere in between your sink and your cook top so you wash the fruits and vegetables you cut them and then they go right to the stove and it's is effortless flow if this is something that you can create in your kitchen or if you are designing a kitchen to keep this in mind that you want to wash the food. Cut the food. Cook the food so wash chop cook. That makes sense now. How did you come up with that because it seems so logical. But it's one of those things that could be a little annoyance if you weren't really planning it out so this is this based on personal experience. It is based on personal experience. I was working with the kitchen designer and she tipped me off to this and i thought this was years ago. I thought okay. She was completely right. Because if you think is on the other side of your cook top then you're carrying wet food over to the cook top and it's nice ice to just to kind of keep it all contained in one area. Sometimes these big fancy designer kitchens. They look good but as far as cooking is concerned. It's it requires a lot of steps because the kitchen is so big in the sink. His way over on one side and the cook top is way over the other and the refrigerators in the opposite corner. And so you end up exhausting yourself in some of these big kitchens because they were designed for aesthetics and not from work and i always say design your kitchen from work a kitchen as a place of work. It should be a pleasing place but its ability to serve your needs. Cooking comes first before it's static function over fashion hundred percent function over fashion in a kitchen. You mentioned the keeping your pots out on the cook top One of my tips is to if you can install a pot rack. Because sometimes i don't know what to cook i'll look up at my pots and I will get an idea for something to cook. Because of hot reminds me of something cooked in it a week ago a couple of weeks ago so i like to look at my pots and i like for them to inspire my cooking. Oh that's good. That's a bonus tip all right number three. this is so important. You've got to be well-stocked you've got to have the kitchen staples in your pantry refrigerator and i have an exhaustible list of these available to anyone. It's the basic salt pepper oil butter eggs onion garlic. I could go on rice and this means that you don't go to the store to buy butter. You have to go to the store to buy rice. It's already in the pantry. And so you can have one special ingredient you brought home and you've got everything else you need to make that so you've got to have a well-stocked pantry does the definition of a well stocked. Pantry vary from person to person. I understand that there are certain staples. We all need like oil and salt and pepper. But if you're on a particular diet or if you notice yourself. Eating the same foods you know i found an old public's receipt in coat in a winter coat that i haven't worn in years because i don't live in ohio anymore. I never need my winter coat. And it had steel. Cut oats raisins blueberries. It was the exact breakfast that i eat to stay and the receipt was like fifteen years old so for me. Those things are staples. Should people kind of pay attention to what they're eating regularly and include those in their list of staples absolutely. I think that The more weekend habitual is healthy. Eating and your menu sounds like a very very good example of a great breakfast. That's okay. I also encourage people to every now and then step out of their comfort zone and buy a new ingredient and see if it becomes part of the routine or part of the staples for instance. Curry paste is is a new staple item for me. I used to use curry powder. I still have lots curried powder. But now i use paste and i prefer it. That's fun and then when you find a new recipe on pinterest or something you have that as one of your staples and having kids. I don't know if you have kids but it's fun to let them pick out like a new fruit or vegetable at the the farm. Stand to just. Oh what is that and then we all get to try it together and yes. My breakfast is healthy. But it's kind of all downhill from there. So i'm curious to hear the rest of your tip so i can like round out my day in a healthier way. What is tip number. Four sharp knives. You've got to have sharp knives and they don't have to be expensive. It just has to be sharp. And i teach people how to sharpen knives that are not expensive but to keep a good late on. You'll work so much faster and you'll work so much safer. If you have sharp knives a chef told me that. I should sharpen my knives. Every time i cook. And i've started doing that and it makes a big difference. My over sharpening. No i don't think so. I honed my knife with just a quick couple of passes on the honing steel before i cook but then every now and then i'll get out all my knives and i'll sharpen them on a stone and if people don't like to use the stone they can use an electric sharpener. That's okay but the steel is something you could do. You can hone it of four. You cut anything. And that's just an takes five seconds to make a couple of passes on the on the honing steel okay. That's actually what i'm doing. So i'm honing and i don't know that i've ever sharpened my knives. So that is something. I will look into when we're done with this conversation but thank you. That's a great tip especially if you're gonna be chopping vegetables and things like that and fiber food will dull your knife high fiber foods del share knife and i want everyone to eat a lot more fiber so you have to have sharp knives it. You're going to cook. Fiber cooked high fiber foods. Oh interesting so if somebody has a perfect set of knives than they may eat out a lot. 'cause there's never chopping the veggies. It's right that's right. Yeah if you're gonna if you're gonna cut fruits and vegetables with skins that are very high fiber. You got to have sharp knives okay. That's a great tip tip number five okay Purge tools and gadgets if you haven't used it in six months throw it away. And i usually tell people to take all of their gadgets. Put him in a box and send them to the garage and then as you need them pull them out and if you pull them out within a year they get to stay and if you don't pull them out within a year maybe you want donate 'em to restore because i really believe that too many gadgets they cluttering the kitchen and i think they robbed the kitchen energy and focus and so the things that get to stay in the kitchen or only the work or utensils and gadgets and pieces. That really serve you. That don't siphon off your energy or your attention. I love that. Marie kondo would say to spark joy. And actually i've heard a lot of people say the same thing about getting rid of clothing if you don't wear it in six months or a year you probably never will. So that's a great one. I believe that and then go. Moving onto number six is the same thing but with pots and pans. I think you should have your workhorse pots and pans that review and the rest of them. Don't clutter your kitchen or waste faced with all of this extra fancy stuff. He needs saute as any frying pans. Saucepans you know oh and cast iron you should have some cast-iron do i wonder if it's aspirated final. Like i want to be the type of person who makes waffles every sunday. So i have a waffle maker and i want to be the type of person who makes pasta every monday so i have a pasta machine. Is it just about getting real with yourself. Like this is the level of cook that i am and i don't need a bunch of fancy gadgets. They're just actually gonna slow me down. I completely agree. You know you just come clean with yourself. I think they can rob you of attention or especially precious face and whatever you. Don't leave these gadgets. Out on a countertop countertops capricious precious real estate. And sometimes i walk into people's kitchens and they've got like a bread machine out on the counter and i ask. When's the last time he used that. I don't know a couple years ago. I would recommend that that bread machine probably go away because countertop is a very very precious thing in the kitchen and you don't want that brand machine to make you feel bad because you bought it. You may spend a lot of money on it and you end up using it. So your kitchen should on does has sparked poise arc inspiration sparked work and efficiency. Yeah i completely agree.
Why is meat so cheap?
"Why is meat so cheap. At least here in the united states here are the facts. Well hey hey on hang on bag. Your badgers gentlemen. Meat is not cheap. I would've agreed with you. Right right Many people would before diving into some of this stuff. So i a couple factors at play here. Everyone who has survived the pandemic so far news. That temporary couvin related closures of factories did drive prices up. And this was compounded by a panic buying right with just one thing when you are preparing for chaotic or unstable situations. You never wanna be panicked by you wanna already have your stuff your deep freezer your pantry etc But people were scared and so there was a smaller supply. The normal for a little while and there was a larger demand so it drove some prices up but really meet in the us. If you are just the average you know John jane or joseph fat walking through your grocery store meet in the. Us is pretty cheap. Especially when compared to many other countries soon to get a sense of how meat prices in the us relate to the the rest of the world. We have to take global perspective. Right we have to look at the the world's meat industry first so we're looking at the price of meat across the world. There are a lot of different factors that go into specific countries price of meat. So i think it's it's better for us to look at how affordable is meet in any given country across the world. So let's consider an absolute price the price that you'd see wherever you procure your meet at a farmer's market or store or something That sticker price can be lower in one country and it doesn't matter if it's lower overall because it may not be affordable compared to the income that an average person is able to make When you think about the amount of the percentage of income they be able to spend on food or meet for example there's this group called catera wing and there's a great article on ear where you can see this information written out in graphs. They they how many hours a local resident of any given country would have to work at minimum wage to afford to pounds of any given meet type so chicken pork. Whatever and it's really it's really interesting to think about it in that way. I think it's probably one of the closest thing to a standard metric to really compare The prices of food and meat in particular across the world. So let's look at indonesia. They're meat is super cheap. Super super cheap is about thirty eight percent cheaper than the global average as of 2017. Yo you're right. These stats are from twenty seventeen We've also got some stuff from two thousand. Eighteen will be mentioning in the show a lot of times. You know this. It takes a while to get all of these aggregated numbers in to crunch them all down and then to present something like like eater did in their article or like cater wing did when they calculated this stuff so a according to two thousand seventeen prices meat in indonesia is among the least affordable in the world even though it's thirty eight percent cheaper than the global average and according to this index catering created indonesians have to work more than twenty three hours twenty three hours to afford two pounds of beef. That seems like a lot. That's almost three times as much as people who live in hong kong have to pay or have to work in order to buy me and nine times as much as an american would have to work to afford two pounds of meat

"We have chef roseo sanchez as our guest. Today she has. I think four restaurants now in copenhagen some of the best tacori is not just in copenhagen. I think you can get anywhere. It just so happens that it's in scandinavia. And she's been a longtime friend. I've known her for many many years. She has a an impeccable. Cv and spending time wd fifty noma and becoming a chef restaurant tour in her own right in copenhagen and i miss her so much worldclass talent amazing person recently married and chris young and i have a sort of catch up slash over under slash. What's been going on in copenhagen type of thing highly. Recommend you stay tuned for that especially when we get into chicago hotdogs. Some that i think is incredibly underrated. Yes they don't put ketchup on but they have celery salt and pickled chili peppers and just about everything else Speaking of underrated. And that's what i want to get into the top of this podcast. I was going to talk just about worcestershire sauce. Which if you don't know it's mostly seem i think in bloody marys. A little dash goes into caesar dressings. I think it's a underrated in general. It's basic anchovies. Tamarind clearly as a influence of british colonisation of india. And you could almost say that it's indian more than anything else but leeann parents. Has this amazing sauce. That i've been using a lot more the past year plus not even sure why but It has a lot of amami. It's got really nice balance. I think i've been using it. Because i've been making a bulldog sauce. Japanese tone katsu sauce for fried foods which is basically Oster sauce Catch up when a lemon juice and some worcestershire sauce. Anyway not to go in all history lesson. Because i barely know it that well but it got me thinking the dish that i think is super underrated that i hope to see. More of is a welsh rare bit. And if you don't know what. A welsh rare. But let me tell you. It is british in origin. It's been around for pretty much as long. I think as worcestershire sauce Online says around seven twenty five. I believe that's around the same time as worcestershire sauce and really. It's just a toasted slice of bread to my knowledge. I'm not an expert in in british anglo-saxon food but I've had a fair sheriff. I welsh rare bits With a cheese sauce. It's basically cheese toast. And i just don't see it ever and growing up. There was a cookbook that my mom had that was basically the only thing that had american slash european recipes and i would sort of peruse it as a kid and looked at this dish called welsh rare and i didn't understand i was like is it rabbit. Wise a rapid dish from wales. Look like it's just brew laid cheese on toast and you know that stuck with me. And i never even thought about it again. Tell i met the great chef fergus. Henderson of saint. John's in london and his Business partner trevor. Gulliver uncle trav- and fergus. Two of the very best best people i know and fergus has had this on his menu at saint john's for many many years and when i ate there the first time they dropped something eating by myself out the bar and this was probably my god thirteen fourteen years ago. And i didn't know how to eat it. I'd never had it before except for this book from the early nineteen eighties and really. It's it's just a cheese sauce with Mustard powder It's like a morning with guinness and cheddar. Cheddar in england is just a different breed altogether a little bit of cayenne base. Make a rue added cheese at the guinness. And you broil it and it comes out with a bottle in parents worcestershire sauce. And i didn't know what to do. And i just put a couple dollops on top and trevor was behind means. Says you have no idea what you're doing. Clearly i didn't and if you haven't been a saint john's listen. It's one of the most iconic restaurants in the world fergus. Henderson if you don't know he's a very important chef and i'm been trying really hard not to go down food rabbit holes where we're talking about chefs and we're talking about things that a lot of people outside of food don't know do me a favor just go. Online and google saint john's restaurant. London saint john's bread and wine and chef fergus. Henderson chef for variety reasons but his restaurant was just. It is still so beautiful. It just start. It's white super clean. One of my favorite restaurants of all time anyway. They have changed dining trends in so many different ways but the one thing that has never really truly caught on is a welsh rare bit and they helped popularize bone marrow on toast a lot of different awful dishes and pies and just again saint. John's has had its global impact on food. But the one dish that. I don't understand why it hasn't sort of taken off. The world over is ferguson. Take on welfare bit. And he was influenced by a gastro pub that he worked in and he was a trained architect. Anyway i'm i've gone way way like all over the place. I started talking worcestershire sauce. Wanna talk about well. Sherbet talking about ferguson. Saint john's and going down the culinary lineage. But basically. I have welsh rare and it comes in. It's this giant giant piece of toast. It's imagine a slice of wonder

I have to usually before the day before i have come up with a coffee planned the next day because he does in favor travel with. There's a that's one. Oh one is where we're going to have our morning cup of coffee. i'll even tell you the The exercise i went through on the trip. That i'm on right now. Is that was in georgia yesterday.

So i did look and i did manage to find a place in In downtown valdosta. It was was pretty cool. it's called The good coffeehouse. Ged well it is. george. I mean that's kind of what are you saying that like there's a problem with it while we went in and we had really great coffee from intelligencia was from chicago. So there you go. I had a great plan and it just got completely torpedoed rather quickly so it was still good to try and look for something that was available. There are low clean. Did find a roaster. That was there in town. Although they weren't open and i couldn't find any of those beans so it was unfortunate but anyway yes we're going to go through coffee wanna wine and we'll talk about You know an awful lot of things. A coffee origins. And we'll talk about varietal beans as well as you know Preparation elements at a. You know a lot of people really sweat this preparation edge stuff. No not that a coffee. Bean is not a coffee is that is for sure. Yeah they're not all equal.

We may decide to talk about them. Poop beanstalk ones that they get out of the poop makes himself. We're not gonna talk about the cookie. God could be low eker civic coffee right where you shut down the The the an will throat and yeah. We're not gonna talk about That now definitely yeah.

Look behind the curtain Since we have access to mike You know as being a judge through that we may not do the currier but do you think that is probably the most jittery awards ever like. Everybody's just drinking coffee the whole time. So they're probably just totally. Jack tweak on on arca that it's not that bad oh sure. It's not in the morning when they do that do they. Do they do like the wine thing. Do they drink it and spit it.
A Feel-Good Story with Chef Brooke Williamson + Starbucks Helping with the Vaccine?
"Both eaters digest. Show all tweeted dining cheater. My name's janine. I'm a producer at eater. Biden is and you know what that really is the news that is dominating the news cycle this week and i tell you assume that i do a little bit sick. We've talked about this like grotesque or cool i. I don't know i don't like you know. Take dead pigeons off the road and cook them. And it's also like i don't nail kick flips. It's kind of weirdly in the middle all right but still defined sick okay. Let's let's hear. I think sick is weird. But not creepy. Well i don't know so. I have like a weird. I've kind of interested in looking at people commenting on danes instagram. As i've mentioned guy yeah. Someone commented on the other day being like pay brother. We got him trump's out biden's in rest even easier. Oh my god so do you have an alert setup or you just every once in a while you'd get back i'll just cruise. I'm so interested in like why that's amazing. Can we get that guy on the show i should. I should just reach out to them. It's just like what are you gain but also like boarding. Was it three years ago. Now i was thinking about it. He'd be like joe biden like mean if he just woke out the shoulder touch guy from dad right now without seeing the context of the last if he just like received that comment. I'd be like joe biden. We had all these people you know maybe in the afterlife your only connection to the world of the living is your instagram comments. And that's a sick fantasy. That's so weird while we're on the topic any other food angles. In to this inauguration story anything else we can use. I referred to it as the inauguration. And i went to go eat some ill sushi. Oh okay that's fine. The up other food angles from this guy from the inauguration. I mean biden. We we we should get to a but we'll talk about biden's initial plans for stimulus and for talks about minimum wage that we would like to get into well. We can get into that later. I we should later in the show. We'll talk about that. We can talk about the latest and vaccination. We can talk about some other news. We're also going to bring on brick williamson restaurant tour play provision to give us a feel good story I guess she's doing but to close rab on this. I would say the only other food angle. That's even a stretch was the bernie meam Which was everywhere. Just this iconic picture bernie looking kind of disgruntled in these very vermont mittens and coat and everyone has photo shopped him into outdoor dining ups around the country. Which i love. I think it just shows you that. Well i don't know. Because i was gonna say that shows you that like you know in in these memes you can see that it could very well may be simpler for years. But i'm remembering for years ago when The same thing happened to trump at the inauguration. Right like i can't remember what it was exactly. But he was looking wacko and people were photo shopping. Him and everything. So i don't know if you can read into the me mrt of the event on its own an indication of the simplicity of the upcoming saying that at all. I just think that's our only that's our only way into uh otherwise. This week is really. It's really a week about politics anyway. Daniel let's but daniel let's get brooke and then we'll come back and talk about what's going on the world of restaurants and politics and everything else. We have chef and restaurant toward brick williamson with a fuel. Good story something that. I've been craving all week so broke. Welcome to the show. Anki thank you for having me So there is this funny thing that happened that i saw on instagram. Where a customer. I guess bought your staff a meal and then that spread to more and more customers. Can you explain what happened. Yeah it was a sunday morning. And if you order directly through our website It basically sends the tickets directly into the kitchen and

Maybe we can do some food or about fungus. The problem is owned. Maybe maybe the bear robotics can have funke because it's actually kind of kind of close to human. Yeah they're up in everett since a hop. Skip for you mike. There's a bear robotics up ever. No fun goes headquarters go. Oh yeah. I was wondering about that. Don't they make did they make like East to make those manner games. We're getting off until like yeah. Let's let's get to some food tech the for story up is you. Chris story about Dragon tales systems working with pete set to actually deliver pizzas via drone. Tell us about the story. Yes so this is over in israel and dragon tales systems. We've covered before they sort of automate workflow in qsr's so we they came to prominence. They came to our radar on our radar last year. I think 'cause they develop as a i based camera. That pizza hut in australia. Install as the pizza came out of the oven and originally it was to like as you placed your order. It would say. Hey your pizza's ready. Here is look. It's made properly. You know it would check to make sure it was cooked properly and then it would send you a picture saying. Hey your pizza's done. It's going to be on. Its way soon. And then when kobe to like hey your pizza's done. And there aren't a lot of grubby. Hands touching it right like so. That's how they came to prominence but they have the system called algo that algorithm mickley runs sort of a coordinates cooking and delivery so it takes into consideration. What's being made when it was ordered when the delivery driver is on their way right and they've added drones to it now so pizza hut in israel. I want to say tel aviv. But i could be wrong Will now incorporate that as part of a test right. It's a demonstration and you're able to basically get pizza by drone and the way they're doing it is they're doing it the the model which i think we're gonna see a lot of is the pizza hut puts it into drone right the drone flies from. Let's say pizza. You know in a mall at flies from the top of the roof of a parking lot. Or whatever and then flies to remote landing hub. Where the delivery driver comes and picks it up and then drives it to wear to the last mile right through the over the last mile. And i think we're going to see a lot more than because it really simplifies sort of dealing with the faa or whatever. Government body is responsible for regulating airspace. And that's you know. I was speaking with the head of dragon tail yesterday. He was just like yeah. You know in israel we have the israeli air force. And you know we're not a very big country so they're able to. It was just easier for them to create these sort of remote. The you know. It's just one path back and forth. then you can map it out. It's not flying over you know military bases or hospitals or whatever right and then you don't have to deal and you don't have to deal with like trying to deliver it onto a person's front yard so i think we're gonna see that a lot but anyway they're starting test that right now and you're also seeing that kind of that's uber. Wanna the do in san diego. I haven't heard much about the drone program lately.
Longevity Roadmap: Longevity Habits And Innovative Therapies
"We're going to consider all these factors that add up to create an extended health span and a place where your health span equals your lifespan. And it's very long. Blue zones are areas in the world where people have the longest longevity people live longest and live the healthiest and so they've been studied really carefully to say. Well why are people so healthy in these blue zones and it's really fascinating. There's some things that that they do in common that helps them have a long healthy vibrant life and one of the first things that we notice is that people in blue zones incorporate exercise into into all aspects of their day. You know they are maybe chopping wood and walking more going for bike rides. We know that people in blue zones are part of a community. They have a sense of purpose. We know that the people in blue zones are more likely to eat less about twenty percent less calories on average they eat per day and they eat a much higher amount of plants in their diet. Plants that are rich and all those fighter nutrients that we know are so good for our health. We know that they have. They have times of regular exercise every day but also times of rest every day times for for a nap or or relaxation prayer. Meditation rest and so all of those things can be helpful for helping us live a long healthy life if we just take some of these examples from people who are living in the blue zones so these are really obvious things that most sort of know and take for granted but there are some interesting differences. You look at for example. The plains indians the lakota and the the group that lived at the turn of century longer than any other population the world these were the buffalo hunters and all they ate pretty much was buffalo and berries right. They had the longest lived population. The world the most number of centenarians people with over one hundred of any population all meet but it was buffalo. And then you have the seventh day. Adventists who also had berry very long lives from loma linda california and they were vegetarians but what they also had was practices that supported health. They didn't smoke didn't drink. They had great community and connection. I mean if you join. A bowling club knitting club. You're more likely to live longer than someone. Who's socially isolated i mean. Loneliness is one of the biggest killers so when you look at these populations there's a lot of variables. They have certain things in common. And i think we have to just look at what those are and they're things that often we've lost sight of and undervalue in our rapidly. Aggressive consuming advancing society. We need to sort of refocus i- priorities on what actually matters. Which is love connection community and in this time of covid. Nineteen was social distancing. The paradox is that many of us are actually connecting more with each other connecting more with those we love spending more time engaging in relationships that matter. And i think that's a good thing and i hope we don't go back to the old normal and we find a new normal that maintains that level of connection. Everybody gets excited by the next new flashy thing or the next big supplement or the big treatment. Help solve the problem aging but we often look some of the most important things that we know already scientifically play such a huge role and their relationships community and even meaning and purpose which i mean how could that be related to longevity but really even optimism is related to longevity so your mindset your beliefs your relationships quality of your relationships and your community play an enormous role in determining your health and longevity. And that's why. For example the okinawans may have found the secret to longevity. It might be their diet. Which i think plays somewhat of a role. But when they're born there placed into a group of babies called the moai and this is a group of four five little babies that literally grow up together through every stage of life and stay together all the way through school marriages children careers and retirement and when they retire the being part of the community all the way through until they die and so they have a sense of belonging. They have the sense of connection. They have this sense of purpose. And it's an incredible thing to see how that relates to longevity and how the opposite is also true that if you look at as a risk factor was more important than diet more important than smoking more important than exercise it's social isolation it's social disconnection. It's a loss of sense of. Connectivity is a much bigger risk factor for death and all those other things so you can do everything right but if you don't tend to your relationships if you don't tend to your community if you don't tend to your spiritual life to your meaning and purpose for being for living is very tough to live a long vibrant healthy life mindset is very very important because you know your your thoughts create your reality. If you think something's going to happen it will happen if you think something's not going to happen. It won't happen. So i call it the placebo effect and the no cbo fact. And there's a wonderful book by bruce lipton. Call a biology of belief. If you haven't read. I highly recommend it. It's one of the books. Sorta changed how i look at at medicine. I look at my patients. And it's the concept of your thoughts in your beliefs in your mindset affect the expression of genes and he was a cell membrane scientist and geneticist. And what he realized. Is that our thoughts and our mindset actually affect the expression of genes and we were all sort of told that everything. The brain of the cell is in the dna and what he what he said. Is that there was an interesting experiment. That did they took cells and they basically took the dna out of the cell and the cell was happy as clam with for like two or three weeks without the all the nucleus the no no dna so was it was running just happily the dna if you will is is a little bit like a recipe book on that gives you recipes for proteins and various building blocks but when the when the cell does not have the nucleus and not have the dna the cell just fine only when it needs to go in there to repair a repetitive maxim. Does it have then tap into the dna and the person's mindset you're having a positive mindset is really really critical and there is a concept called the no cbo so when a doctor says something to a patient and you're going to die from this that literally is like voodoo death is that negative mindset is toxic and placebo. Is the effect where the doctor gives you. A sugar pill says this is gonna get you better. And lo and behold is just a sugar pill and the person does get better so mindset and beliefs can actually have a positive effect or a negative effect. And it's a question of is the glass half empty. Glass half full or the glass is just is the glass depends on how you want to look at it so your perspective on things you can shift your perspective. We that's one things that cognitive behavioral therapy people go to therapists one of the things that the therapist does is allow them to sort of see themselves from another angle another shift. So yes the glass half empty. Yes the glass half full. Yes the glass is. It's it's a matter of how you want to change your how you see things and also your emotional connection to whatever it is that you're seeing like right now. You know you can have the kobe crisis going on and you can say oh my god i'm gonna die or whatever now you can also you can. That's one perspective. You can also say. I got more free time on my hands on a little bit less busy. What can i do to do. Better self care. What can i do to expand my awareness of nature. You can spend some quiet time by yourself and just be get off your net flicks
Debunking Microwave Myths
"There's more kinds of fast food than anywhere and drive thru is king especially now during quarantine and i realized that every time i've ordered a hamburger meal. I've had this dilemma. That i believe most of you maybe can be able to relate to see. I have a problem number one of over ordering but i never know to get a soda or to get a milkshake and oftentimes i get both. But that's just like too much and especially if you're eating with someone else you want to look like a total glutton right so like there's something very refreshing about getting a fast food milkshake. And even though they're full of stabilisers and guar gums and things that prevent it from ever melting it. Just sorta hit the spot with a burger and a french fry but the problem is when you get a milkshake. The first sort of five ten minutes of a fresh milk shake are impossible drink and you need to quench your thirst. You need to be able to wash down your food with something. And nothing beats a soda. A coca cola sprite out. Whatever lemonade iced tea. You need some kind of beverage. The lure of having a milkshake foils me every goddamn time. Because what's the point of getting a meal when you have to get another soda and you don't wanna share a soda with somebody. So i never get a milkshake anna soda. If i'm ordering drive through. I'm like maybe i have a bottle water. I'll drink that. Anal- have a milkshake but water and a milkshake. Just don't work to me it. just. I don't want to have something. That's very sweet and dairy driven and then just drink water. Like i feel like the the pairing for a milkshake is a soda. And i just don't know what to do. And i'm always left disappointed in because i always get the milk shake and then i have to chase it down with some water yet a small cup of water or some half drink bottle of water that you find in your backseat of your car and i was on. Does anyone else have this problem. Does anyone else even want to order milk shakes and then if i got i got to think like what are my favorite kinds of fast milkshakes. I'm not a carl's junior expert. I know some people really love it. Not a fan of arby's growing up. I went to roy. Rogers a lot and the dc area. And i thought they had milkshakes. Mcdonald's was always like here. Although the mcflurry is tremendous. I grew up and i still think my favorite personal favourite kind of milkshake thing is a wendy's frosty. But you definitely can't drink that god damn thing A spoon eating thing. You cannot drink it unless it's fully melted so you know that. Sorta leaves me with the machine. Milkshake kind of thing. That you get at mcdonald's or an in and out and i always get a strawberry or black and white milk shake in in and out but i don't love the in and out milkshake. I think that it's too sweet. And the reason why like a sweet thing like a milkshake is like it just for me. I don't know if it's an doubt. But a pairs really. Well the dairy. I don't know the the sweetness with french fries and a cheeseburger but also doesn't it's hard to beat see coca cola with burger too so i don't know i think i make a ordering mistake by getting a milkshake every time and i have chat come up with occurs to also order a soda i want to know. Does anyone out there. Get a milkshake and a soda in his anyone else. When they order milkshake in a combo do they feel disappointed because they can't really quench their thirst or wash down their food because they're about the burst goddamn vein in their forehead trying to suck down a fresh milk. Shake that you know you can't really drink through a straw spoon type of thing and the one place that has really good. Milkshakes concrete's shake shack. I don't order enough of why. I don't know because i don't know there's maybe nostalgic because i like the super artificial intentionally crappy milkshakes than most of the fast food chains sell and i think that if you were going to say on pure technique and flavor i think shake shack has best in class milk shaky type of things and ice cream where everything else and i love the soft serve ice cream you get. That is sort of the base for a lot of these. Milkshakes are great but at the end of the day. I sound like a bass case and you are getting a glimpse in my brain when i ordered drive through and the car behind me. Curry the hell up order. I'm usually trying to debate. How many milkshakes or or like do i get a milkshake. And i never come up with the right answer as you can see. I sound like a head case right now so you can imagine. I wanna get a milkshake. There's something about getting a milkshake. That i like a lot but it never actually does the job of making me feel happy and when i just get a soda you know what i'm thinking about shit. I should've gotten a milkshake. And i feel like you look like an idiot and a total gluttonous get both so. That's my dilemma. Wanna get into the show. We recorded a podcast with someone that i've been wanting to get on this podcast since the very beginning in 'em you know we've had a lot of great guests but i'm so god damn excited to get professor greg blonder on and we are going to talk mostly about microwaves. Greg blonder is the professor of mechanical engineering design and product engineering at boston university. He has a bs in physics from massachusetts institute of technology. Mit doesn't dummies in. And he's got his phd in physics from harvard. And you should check out his website where he practices a lot of these things that he is going to talk about on this podcast at genuine ideas dot com. That's one where genuine ideas dot com. Check it out clearly. I love the microwave. I just don't understand why it's not being used more. And i get quite upset when people think that it's unsafe and creates unhealthy foods. It's an amazing tool. And i think people should probably look at it more as like a high tech steamer in some ways but also a tool. That should save you a lot of time. Even if you're a cook stuff on the stove and greg blonder is here to sort of dispel. A lot of the myths about microwaves. If you're a fan of microwaves. i think you're gonna love this if you're still on the fence about microwaves. I encourage you to listen to this. And if you hate microwaves i hope that you listen to this

And i'm excited because they don't think when we did this episode. I was determined to find some. I don't think i ever actually follow through. I think i did locate some jelly donuts. But i don't think i actually purchase them. I still haven't actually purchased an eaton punch key. Because i don't know like i get weird about about sweets sometimes because my like i turn into such a raving lunatic when i have sugar and so i'm like i don't know like i'll be in the grocery store and i'll be like looking at and then i'll be like lauren do. How do you want your data. Go yeah i. I'm kind of similar. I don't think. I have the similar physical reaction but i definitely someone who prefers savory of her sweet and it works my friends so much like it's one of the few things normally. She's the one who can rile me up. She's very good at riling me up. She's the reason. I gave up soda. Dared me but she when quarantine first half march thirteenth. She was with me because we were supposed to go to a concert that night and she she loves sweets so she brought like this ben and jerry's cookie dough ice cream and it was girl scout season which we did the girl scout remember. showed right after that because of her and she's berry angry at me still because she left the ice cream in my refrigerator. I have not eaten it so it's better year and she. She blames me for her girl. Scout cookie fiasco where she the entire case. But that had nothing to do with me now. I didn't want it. I mean it was you were clearly. I mean you were clearly not at fault for that. That was her that was on her. Yes did laugh at her.

If y'all don't know Is a prolific illustrator and I am yes. And and and so we. We kind of developed out this This this private investigator. Or i don't know like like gumshoe. Sorta character called the dunker. And he's a jelly donut and he dispenses jelly justice this and lots of ponds the puns. And there's there's a whole cast of characters you've got the big cheese and you've got count donkey ella the toast who we mentioned. The i've drawn all these out the alternator and the dunkers really dealing with some intense emotional issues because it's got a bite out of him.

Is Deep Dish Pizza Actually A Casserole?
"This podcast sounds a little bit different. We're doing this from home again. 'cause josh keeps forgetting to bring mike back to the studio. Despite being the biggest chicago icon since kanye west. There's no more maligned midwest food than the deep dish pizza whether you love it or hate it you still have to answer. The question is even a pizza. Dollar is it god. Help us a casserole. This is a hot dog is a sandwich. Yeah but cereal. So what makes no sense off. Sent a podcast. Welcome to our podcast. A hotdog is a sandwich the show where we break down. The world's biggest food debates. I'm your host joshua and i'm your host nicole. Handy's oughta today nicole nicole. We are taking on. This is a hot button topic. This is maybe the most controversial thing that we have ever talked about on the show. And i'm so very excited for it so we were talking about whether or not deep dish. Pizza actually qualifies as a pizza or if it should be considered a casserole in this was brought up. I know it's a huge thing and something that i'd likely never would have thought about if it was not for jon stewart's epic rant about it which i shall now read in its entirety in. Stay buckled up. If you're in a car what are we. Stay buckled up. How long is it super long. The podcast in general. It's like forty five minutes too long. Only gosh okay okay. Now i shall read jon. Stewart's epic anti deep dish pizza rant in its entirety. Okay i was going to be nice but now you've gone too far so let me explain something. Deep dish. pizza is not only not better than new york pizza. It's not pizza. It's a freaking casserole. I'm surprised you haven't thought to complete your deep dish pizza by putting some canned onion rings on top of it. It's a corn bread. Biscuit which melted cheese on and then in defiance of god in man in all things holy. You've poured uncooked marinara sauce atop the cheese atop the cheese on top. The sauce cold on display like some sort of sauce. Hor- you know the expression there's no such thing as bad sex or bad pizza. Your pizzas like sex with a corpse made of sandpaper. Let me tell you something. This is not pizza this tomato soup and a bread bowl this is an above ground mariner swimming pool for rats. Let me tell you something about your frigging not pizza. I want to know when i get drunk and pass out of my pizza that i'm not going to drown. Let me tell you something. I look at this. Look at this. You look at this sort of a biscuit. When i look at me i gotta do. I look at this when i look at your deep dish. Frequent pizza. i don't know whether to eat it or throw a coin and make a wish and make a wish it would be that would risher some real and pizza now in all due respect. I realize it's very cold in chicago very cold. It's windy need to be able to have a pizza and maybe cut it open. Climb side of it like a taunt on to keep you warm seriously. Who you who you kidding. Who uses an iron skillet to make a pizza. You don't use an iron skillet to make a pizza. Use an iron skillet to fend off someone who tries to serve you. A frequent pizza made with the skillet. Here's how you know. I'm right you call chicago style. Pizza called deep dish pizza stuffed pizza. You know we call it. You know we call this. We call pizza. Oh that's nice and by the way you don't put tomatoes and celery salt on free and hotdogs either. You know what i'm saying. Everybody knows there's three acceptable condiments for a hot dog mustard onions and stagnant hotdog cart water. That's it wow. John stewart in a way that only jon stewart can do. I'd like to hear. Trevor noah's version of the anti deep dish rent. But i mean that's that's huge fires jon stewart's new yorker. He's got strong views. Chicago deep dish pizza. Obviously a far cry from do you think it's far enough to be called a casserole. What new york person doesn't have strong opinions on pizza. Have you ever met someone. That's from new york and eats an la slice like this garbage Toy feel like every new yorker has big opinions pizza. But no i think it's i believe that deep dish pizza is still a pizza. The quantities might be a little confusing to the average person but at the end of the day. It is though it is sauce. It is cheese. It is innate triangular shape when you cut it typically and you put on a plane and you go nam nam nam with a fork and a knife. Little some weird still. Do it still pizza. So i get man. You got to look at the functionality of pizza and what it's meant to do right. And and i totally understand someone. Someone who views new york pizza as the end all be all which i do. So there are a bunch of other celebrities and whatnot. Who have waited on this like now. Dead judge antonin. Scalia said that the only true. I don't know why chose to call him now. Dead at former but for former elite too late supreme court justice antonin. Scalia said that the only true pizza is neopolitan and therefore chicago deep dish pizza a pizza. Also i think with bater. Ginsburg said that a hotdog is a sandwich. Anyways supreme court justices do not get to rule on food opinions. You and i do. Nicole in jesse's impressive as a prime court. Justices i worked for. I am the rv of a mythical kitchen at the school. I don't wanna be incidence kelly. I mean i'll be. I'll be so that's all fine. Okay okay if you look at the functionality of what a pizza is okay. It's funny that antonin. Scalia neopolitan pizza and that is pizza right. There's the aco verita blah blah blah. There's the whole like governing board that defines things as pizza pizza. However you can't hold talking to the supreme court. I am not a constitutional originalist. I believe in a living constitution. I believe in a living definition of pizza and so like nepal and all pizza to me. We define pizza across the world. That's the pizza. Hut's domino's these multi-national corporations that have now spread to malaysia in dubai and all the other continents of the world.
Episode 347: White Bean Soup, Seitan, and Home Cooking Changes
"Where here to talk shop with obsessive home cooks everywhere and this week talking about white bean soup say tan and enduring changes to our home cooking. But first let's talk about something we read this week. you know. i can't resist. Some kind of click bait millennial type listed goal and boy. Oh boy was ever one of those. So aarp why am reading a rpi. I'm not sure But anyway they had an article about the millennial the healthy millennial food habits that older people should adopt first of all. Let's talk about like what is a millennial. I looked it up pew. Researchers at somebody born between eighty-one and ninety six. When's your birth year. If you don't mind sharing seventy nine. So i'm and i'm yeah seventy seven. I'm in that weird little bubble. That's really kind of generation lists. I'm a little too young to be a gen-x like i'm and i'm a little too old to be a millennial it's weird. I wonder how large that bubble is. I've always sort of felt see. Yeah well it's you and you and scott you're both seventy seven guys have always felt genesee to me my sister is eighty two and she's very firmly millennial but i i've always kind of been in the middle based on these foods though i that makes me feel like i hit might have a millennial streak in me. You know what. I personally argue with this list. I take upset. A exception to the idea that these are millennial foods. Okay so here let me. Can i read out the list. And then we can he do so the list there nine things on avocado toast cauliflower. Kale kombucha marcha oat milk overnight oats po cables and keen. And first of all. I would say. I've eaten at least half this list for the majority of my adult life. So long before the millennials came along and where came into their yeah came and trendsetting trend trendsetting ability and some of these things. My mom was making in the seventies so like how can they be millennial foods if you know the hippies in nineteen seventy were making them in eating them. Can i give you. Can i quiz you. Yeah i love everything on this list except one thing. I don't think you like overnight outs. Correct hat learn you are. You're my food soulmate. I do pretty well. How do you do you like everything on this list I like most things. I'm not a huge poe cable able fan. Only because i don't feel like they always translate to like east coast food. Well you know to me. Poco bowl is really something. You should be eating in hawaii. Probably my deep and abiding love of white rice like you know. It's mostly poke holes most mostly rice so i love them but yeah macho is definitely not a food now at all nor is cauliflower. Kale they've been around for ever. I do agree. These are all healthy foods. Yeah but like. When i we avocado toast when i was a kid in. La we had friends who had avocado trees so in southern california. You know someone can easily show up on your doorstep with a grocery bag. Fill evolve volcanoes. And you have to figure out something to do with. But you know we've been eating evan. I personally been eating cutter toast. Since at least nineteen eighty-one it sounds pretty pretty good to have a california neighbor with all those avocados like anyway. Sorry i was lost in the fantasy of being a california there for a minute. no it was. It was pretty great. I have to say that. The only thing i miss about california is the produce like there's just nothing like it it's magic but otherwise i'm happy to be living where i'm living. I will say that i agree with. Aarp the are all pretty basically healthy foods that it would be good for people to eat. Yeah you know regardless of their age. But then they're like exceptions. I thought oh geez you know so. Many of them came with sort of hesitations to recommend You have to be careful with kale if you're on certain blood centers because that's true true but it was just sort of a depressing no reminder that even kale can be a problem. I mean now to split hairs but and you know my dad has been on blood thinners for at least way long before his stroke at least at least ten years even more And he always Used that as like to get out of greens free card. So of course i tried to learn about it and the fact is like you can eat all the kill. You want no matter. What your medication. Almost no matter what you're measuring agent is. I can't speak to every medication but for bloods that are specifically as long as you're eating a consistent amount you need to eat around the same amount every day. oh interesting. it's the vitamin k. Yeah anyway so of course it's always share this with you I wonder i. I would think most of our listeners are older than millennials. But what do you think maria. Judging from our patriae on chat group. I would think that's probably true. I think we have more of a gen-x Baby-boomer yeah audience. Which launcher there. Some yeah but you know i. It doesn't matter which you are. Local mouthful transcends generations. We are a home cooking. And that is universal. I just would be curious if people who are legit millennials feel that this list reflects things that you know is of their generation or whatever so someone will come to the show notes until yeah. That'd be interesting okay.
Fasting: Hype Or Ultimate Health Hack? with Dave Asprey
"Coming up on this episode of the doctors pharmacy. When your blood sugar gets really low. Your body says oh. This is kind of emergency. I need some blood sugar. Good thing i have built in systems to turn on blood. Sugar instantly is called cortisol and adrenaline. So your body says i'm crashing. Let me get you some stress. Hormones right here and then you get your energy back but it's fighting energy it's stress energy. It's dr mark. My main goal with diet is use food as medicine but even when we eat super well most of us are missing out on certain essential nutrients our soil's have become depleted in art digestive tract. Just aren't working so grade compromised by stress and toxins and they just can't absorb nutrients as efficiently as they should. And that's why. I always used. And i recommend to. My patients a multivitamin mineral as nutritional insurance. It covers the basics for all our day to day body functions. All the things that we need that our food might be missing but there are so many products out there. I wouldn't go near because they contain artificial fillers or inactive ingredients and you have to be pretty picky the one i trust and take myself is athletic. Greens they use high quality highly absorbable forms of vitamins and nutrients from real whole foods athletic. Greens comes in a powder that tastes great and mixes easily with water or smoothies and specifically supports my gut health immunity energy and recovery. And it's not just vitamins and minerals. It has fido nutrient rich superfoods and adapted jin's and pre and probiotics and even digestive enzymes. I love it. They add the digest was support in their powder since so much of our immune strength and overall wellness starts in the gut. It's really one supplement that covers so many bases and you'd be hard pressed to find something else in this comprehensive form in any single other product. I use athletic. Greens in the morning as part of my daily routine. And i love having it with me whenever i travel.

Yeah i'm excited about because you guys live An exceptionally pretty crazy life in terms of travel and egos in people and all that stuff. So i'm very curious. How have food plays a factor in that in that wacky world. Well i'm a. I'm a total foodi and before i was In the beverage space. I mean my first investment back in two thousand nine after we bought our first house The first check i wrote was for a restaurant a buddy that was had a successful restaurant in denver that was my favorite restaurant in denver and was arguably one of the most successful. He was venturing out to start opening up different restaurants in. I i literally. I think the first time. I needed his restaurant. I asked to speak to the shop. And i just kinda brazenly said hey if you ever opened another restaurant and in you need anybody else to like help. Underwrite it Is this is. this is as good as anything. I've had a new yorker la and And so yeah. We are then ended up investing in the i think five additional restaurants that that guy opened up and then invest in a couple of restaurants in new york. I'm still an owner of a pizza place up in upper east side and Yeah man. I'm i'm i've i've got lucky in the food world. I mean it's it's a bad time for food right now. Obviously the restaurants. But i bet on that on the talent that on the chefs and Pretty much my favorite thing to do other than make music is cook. I cook you know like like. Oh my god you know. There's a two months ago that i think i cooked pretty much every day for like sixty days. Get outta here. Yeah yeah that's my jam. Man chefs are my friends. A lot of a lot of my friends over the years our our you know our chefs. So it's it's definitely my my wheelhouse you know. I feel a kindred spirits a chefs as well because they don't get much credit. Well i guess lately they do. You have rock star chefs and stuff like that but as performers. I feel like we're used to getting on stage performing. We get the instant gratification whereas chefs are kind of behind the scenes. They rarely get the diners to come in and be like. Hey man that was great. You know they just come in. They leave they never really interact with the chef. Sure which i guess. Your career is kind of interesting. Because you're you're behind the camera and in front of the camera. Or i guess behind the microphone in front of the microphone. I don't know how you guys stayed in the music wall street. Yeah i mean i'm on. Tv as well. You know my my short show on nbc on both producing behind the camera and on the camera and you might be behind the behind. The curtain in front of the curtain would be the musical term. Yes so. I'm always interested about by this. Because what do you enjoy more do you. Is there something that you lose by writing for someone because you're not necessarily getting the credit. Obviously and you know you get you. Get the cash. But yeah you don't get the actual applause and stuff like that. Does that bother you at all or your. Your look is in my egos check Never had an issue with that i. I've enjoyed a pretty consistent modem of anonymity and the anonymity is worth its weight in gold.
