Delicious ”Junk” Food Made Nutritious, Superfoods, Potent Seed Oils | Asher @ Dr. Cowan’s Garden
Play • 1 hr 2 min

Clean eating can take time, money, and bore your tastebuds. Luckily, there’s a better way. In this chat with Asher Cowan, we discuss the art of food preparation; easy swaps to make junk food healthy and tasty; the discrepancy between science showing the health benefits of seed oil and the actual results; and some ancestral food tips.

Meet our guest

Asher grew up in New Hampshire and played a lot of sports in his youth. He played basketball at Clark University where he studied Economics and Entrepreneurship. After college, he worked as a consultant and financial analyst but quickly became disillusioned with living the "corporate" life. He decided to combine two passions of his, health food and entrepreneurship, and co-found Dr. Cowan's Garden. They started by launching a line of vegetable powders, before expanding into kitchen staples, like grains and legumes, sprouted nuts and nut butters, sprouted granolas, cold-pressed seed oils, packaged meat, and ghee.

Thank you to our partners Key takeaways
  • Seed oils can be healthy if the manufacturer took extra precautions to cold process them (never exposing them to ANY heat), and avoided adding harsh chemicals
  • Additives and chemicals lead to food intolerance
  • Follow the ancestral wisdom of bioharmonous food processing (soaking, sprouting, fermenting, etc)
