Crystal and Jo talk with the dynamic Diana Rodgers from Radiance Nutrition and the Sustainable Dish about food sustainability.

  • The difference between “being Paleo” and living in a sustainable Paleo way
  • The importance of sleeping well, getting out in nature and connecting with the community
  • The Homegrown Paleo Cookbook – a “how to” for homesteading and how to live a more sustainable Paleo life (whether you’re growing your own food or not)
  • What questions we can ask at the supermarket, farm gate or farmers markets
  • Food policy around sustainability and the assumptions made about plant-based diets and farming
  • Why Diana loves goats
  • Humane slaughter and respecting the whole animal
  • Making sustainability “sexier”
  • Diana’s topic for the Ancestral Health Symposium in Queenstown in October
