#84: Kate Kavanaugh (@katekavanavgh) - Butchering the Plant-Based Agenda
Manage episode 337095747 series 3360802
Kate Kavanaugh grew up eating a plant-based diet but turned to an animal-based diet to remedy her health problems. Now, Kate owns Western Daughters Butcher Shoppe in Denver, Colorado, and operates a regenerative farm in New York. Her butcher shop opened in 2013 and it’s a whole-animal butcher shop that sources 100% grass-fed and grass-finished beef and lamb from regenerative farms and pasture-raised pork and chicken. She’s using her farm in New York to experiment with raising low-PUFA pork and chickens.

The protein powder & supplement industry is riddled with products that aren’t sourced from high-quality sources or contain ingredients and fillers that you don’t want in your protein powder or body. Equip provides a clean, beef-sourced protein and even has a product that’s a single ingredient, beef protein. If you’re a purist like us, eating real foods is the only way to maximize your health. Equip ensures that if you don’t have access to freshly cooked food after a workout, you can at least opt for a high-quality protein powder.
LMNT Electrolyte Drink Mix: LMNT is loaded with the necessary electrolytes without the sugar. We personally used LMNT during our Ironman training and performance and also during everyday training to provide us with the sodium we need on a low-carb diet.
The Carnivore Bar: The Carnivore Bar is a delicious, 3-ingredient bar that will fuel you with the highest quality animal-protein possible. Each bar only has 3-ingredients (Beef, Tallow, Salt) and has a creamy yet crunchy texture. The Carnivore Bars are grass-fed / grass-finished and will truly make "staying on the path" easier when traveling.
