Uplifted Living / Edible Insects

Hosted by Aaron Barker


Hour 1

Susan Smith Jones, PhD. joins us on the show once again to discuss her book “Uplifted: 12 Minutes to More Joy, Faith, Peace, Kindness & Vitality.” Over the past several years, many have become agitated and upset, leaving little to no time to ground themselves. Susan gives tips on how to be kind to others along with yourself.

Susan tells us that our diets drive much of our mental dispositions, which means we must balance our lives with health foods full of real nutrients. Not only is it your diet, but exercise will raise endorphins in your body, giving you a “runner’s high.” When we are living with these feelings, it comes along with improved health, decreased stress, reduced depression, happiness, and concentration. Through a simple 21-day commitment, with twelve-minute practical segments, we can all lead happier, healthy lives.

Hour 2

Bill Broadbent from Entosense joins the show to discuss the health benefits of bugs. How does one begin to think about this? Bill’s always enjoyed the outdoors and had a desire to take care of the environment, which impacted his son. It was through a research paper that showed how the meat industry was not only damaging to our health, but unsustainable and environmentally destructive. Insects can be grown in multiple environments and emit very little green house gases.

Although many may get the creeps from even considering this, Bill asserts that much of the modern world still has a steady diet of insects. It’s only here in the West, because of European influence in the New World, our diets became mainly meat. Bill tells us that bugs contain more key proteins than our regular diets. Chefs in high-end restaurants use insects in their meals, and anyone can learn to cook with them.
