The Warrior Wellness Podcast

Eat Like A Human

November 13, 2021

In episode 40 of the Warrior Wellness Podcast, we are honored to have Dr. Bill Schindler again for a second time! Bill has a brand new book launching on November 16th called Eat Like a Human. Dr. Schindler is the founder and director of the Modern Stone Age Kitchen (formerly called the Eastern Shore Food Lab) and a former Associate Professor of Anthropology and Archaeology at Washington College in Chestertown, Maryland. Bill was also the co-star of both the National Geographic series, The Great Human Race, and Curiosity Stream’s, The Modern Stone Age Family. Bill is a food archaeologist, primitive technologist, and chef. He travels the world documenting traditional foodways and works to draw inspiration from the deep archaeological record, rich and diverse ethnographic record, and the modern culinary world to create food solutions that are relevant, meaningful, and accessible today. Bill is a strong advocate of traditional foodways and is constantly seeking new ways to incorporate lessons learned from his research into the diets of modern humans. His outlook on food has revolutionized the way in which he and his family eat and he attributes much of the health his wife and three children enjoy to the nutrient-dense hunted, gathered, and fermented foods that comprise a significant portion of their diets. He empowers people around the world to eat like humans again by reconnecting them with their food, past, environment, and communities through speaking, teaching, and writing.

Bill’s new book, In Eat Like a Human, archaeologist, and chef Dr. Bill Schindler draws on cutting-edge science and a lifetime of research to explain how nutrient density and bioavailability are the cornerstones of a healthy diet. He shows readers how to live like modern “hunter-gatherers” by using the same strategies our ancestors used—as well as techniques still practiced by many cultures around the world—to make food as safe, nutritious, bioavailable, and delicious as possible. With each chapter dedicated to a specific food group, in‑depth explanations of different foods and cooking techniques, and concrete takeaways, as well as 75+ recipes, Eat Like a Human will permanently change the way you think about food, and help you live a happier, healthier, and more connected life. Order Bill’s book and take control of your health, wellness, and nutrition, and start eating like a human!
