Chloe Sorvino is the author of the new book Raw Deal: Hidden Corruption, Corporate Greed, and the Fight for the Future of Meat. Sorvino’s shocking exposé explores how the meat industry reached this point, unpacks why it matters so critically, and looks ahead to discuss real solutions. In our conversation with Chloe, we discuss:

* Her book - Raw Deal

* Corruption in the food system

* Corporate interests & political influence

* Centralization of power within the food system

* Grass-roots movements to create higher-quality food


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.

Holy Cow Beef: Labeling laws have made it challenging to know exactly how your beef was raised. “Grass-fed” does not mean what it used to and since the laws permit for grain-fed beef to still be considered grass-fed, you really need to look for the AGA (American Grassfed Association) label to ensure you’re getting the highest quality beef. Holy Cow Beef, owned by Ann and Weldon Warren, embodies the highest standards of animal husbandry and truly believes in the importance of creating the highest quality product for the end consumer. Check out their website for meat boxes and delivery options!

CrowdHealth: CrowdHealth is rewriting the incentives when it comes to healthcare. The business establishes its customer base through monthly contributions, which pay out the healthcare needs of others in the group. Unlike health insurance, CrowdHealth’s business is predicated on crowdfunding, meaning your fellow group members contribute to your healthcare bills as they come due. The monthly fee is less than an insurance plan, and the costs of the healthcare cases are lower since CrowdHealth facilitates paying these healthcare costs in cash instead of insurance (which doctors and hospitals prefer). Your contributions pay for the group’s health care costs as they come up, and it’s up to your discretion on whether you pay out to fund other’s costs.
