In this conversation to source your meat, lifetime health and fitness enthusiast, Nigel O’Quinn, talks about his journey into the world of nutrition. Initially following traditional college education programs, Nigel realized that his health was deteriorating. This led him to look outside the food pyramid for a proper nutrition. He emphasized on the significance of connecting with real food, specifically nutrient-dense organ meats which had been largely dismissed from diets. Nigel, who operates in both the USA and Canada, works with regenerative farmers that promote grass-fed and grass-finished programs for the benefit of land, animals, and human health. He shares his insights on the issues with the food and supplement industries and the detrimental impact of certain farming practices. He robustly endorses supporting local farmers and eating whole animals to reclaim our health, as our ancestors once did.
