Wild Zora Sponsorship

Alex and I are always looking for nutrient-rich, real food snacks we can enjoy on the go. So we’re thrilled to have Wild Zora as an official sponsor of the podcast. A complete and balanced snack is more than just meat, Wild Zora Meat and Veggie Bars include a balance of grass-fed or naturally raised meats mixed with one serving of certified-organic fruits and veggies. Every bar is super nutrient dense and 100% real food. Go over to to check out all their yummy flavors and stock up on their high-quality snacks.


Brittany has put together a Thanksgiving Recipe Round-up that is going out to all her email subscribers. Sign-up so you can grab all these recipes in time for Thanksgiving!

Megan of GingerNewtrition and Alex have released the new version of the Toxic Home Makeover, along with an 8 week video mini-course that helps you implement all of these changes in a methodical and stress-free manner. Grab your guide and join us over on our Instagram accounts (digprimal and gingernewtrition) for the 30 day Toxic Home Makeover Challenge that we’re posting on every single day in the month of November.

Eye Health Question

“Hi ladies! I’d love to hear your thoughts on how to maintain good eye health. I’m 28 years old but after my son was born last year my vision drastically took a nosedive. Even the optometrist is quite surprised. Even if I can’t reverse the damage already done, I would love to know what vitamins and minerals go into maintaining as good of eye health as possible. Thanks!” – Caitlin

We answered by addressing nutritional options to focus on, such as omega 3 fatty acids, vitamins C and E, zinc, and vitamin A. We also discuss good eye hygiene with glasses and contact lenses and then dig deep into getting eye exercises to give our peepers a break from the constant screen time we expose ourselves to


We get into the details behind all the different ways you can get involved into composting. We discuss everything from working with your local farmers market to keeping earthworms in your kitchen to building your own compost in your backyard! It’s easier than you think and can be helpful in cutting down on the waste you throw away.

Sleeping Pills

We discuss why so many people are dependent on sleeping pills, including sleep disorders, sleep hygiene problems, and lifestyle considerations.  We then talk about natural sleep aid options such as melatonin, valerian root, chamomile, essential oils, magnesium oil, epsom salt/bentonite clay baths.
