Welcome to Ben Greenfield's Weekly Roundup!
In this weekly post, I share with you my most interesting discoveries of the week, including the latest news on the fronts of fitness, nutrition, health, wellness, biohacking, and anti-aging research. I also recap my upcoming events and special announcements so you can keep up with opportunities to learn, giveaways, discounts, and more!
“Running With You” by Ben Greenfield – A Song From My New Album
I've finally fulfilled my “bucket list” dream of recording an album in Nashville!
See, I grew up in a very musical family, played the violin for many years, sang in a rock band in high school, sang in the church choir in college, and even interviewed amazing music icons like Rick Rubin on my podcast.
Despite not being anything like a “professional musician,” I still love music – whether that be writing and singing my own original songs, singing praise songs and hymns at church, or busting out some Coldplay or Jelly Roll or Elevation Worship or Chris Stapleton (yeah I dig a weird mix of contemporary, pop, Christian and country) while driving down the highway.
And now I've officially recorded an album comprised of my original songs.
The title of the album is Made For, and the first track I’m releasing is the song “Running With You.”
I wrote this song for my sons River and Terran (you’ll notice the sneaky part in the lyrics where I call them out: “Run wild like a river, and shake the ground live louder than thunder!)”.
This song reflects the deep bond and adventurous spirit shared between father and sons, and it is definitely meant to crank out loud while driving in your car by yourself, or with your own children – preferably en route to an adventure like a big hike, a baseball game or a hunting expedition. ;)
Anyways, let me know what you think, share it with a friend who you think might dig it, leave it a like on your favorite music platform, and thanks for listening! Also a big thanks to Nashville’s Chad Carouthers for collabing with me on this project (huge talent there!).
Stay tuned for five more original songs in the next few weeks…
Fun fact: the “oooooh” echo in the chorus is me and four friends who we blow up in the production studio to sound like a whole choir!

Product Of The Week
::: Get Free Shipping On Your Purchase Of 100% Pure Cultured Cooking Oil :::
But the consumption of vegetable oil has skyrocketed in recent years, while healthier fats like coconut oil have been eased out.
The reasons behind this shift are many, but economics is a significant factor. Vegetable oils are cheap, and even high-end restaurants are starting to cut their olive oil with vegetable oil to reduce costs. These days, it's hard to find a “healthy” packaged snack, like popcorn, nuts, or vegetable chips, that isn't doused in vegetable oil.
What many people still don't realize is that vegetable oils are leading drivers of chronic disease, negatively impacting your metabolism, levels of inflammation, oxidative stress, weight, and cancer risk.
If you're on board with getting vegetable oils out of your diet and the food system, then you'll love Zero Acre Cultured Oil. It's always 100% pure cultured oil and has over 90% monounsaturated fat and less than 3% inflammatory fats.
With a 485-degree Fahrenheit smoke point, Cultured Oil is perfect for all your cooking needs, including frying, roasting, sauteing, and baking.
If you're in the market for some new oils to use in the kitchen, click here and use code GREENFIELD for free shipping on your purchase!

Asking A Quick Favor About My New Book Boundless Parenting: Tools, Tactics & Habits of Great Parents.
As you may know, in February of this year I released Boundless Parenting: a labor of love made up of interviews with some of the most incredible parents on the planet and their combined wisdom.
This book is designed to be a guide to, well, guiding your child in a world where navigating the act of raising a family has become a lost art.
The interviews in Boundless Parenting range from Bryan Johnson of Blueprint to my friends Dr. Dan and Merily Pompa, and many, many more. The text is chock full of all sorts of tools and tactics, from teaching your kids how to fast (and when it would be appropriate) to the ways Jessa and I have invested in the Greenfield family legacy. It has everything you need to go from lost-puppy-without-a-clue to grade-A super parent, and also has plenty of wisdom and actionable information for well-seasoned parents.
Now Boundless Parenting is available as the ultimate audio experience, as each chapter's narration comes not just from me and my wife Jessa, but also from each contributing parent's voice.
That’s right, you get to hear each parent read their chapter from their own perspective, making this audiobook come to life.
The parents, including my very own mom, my dad, myself, my wife, and many other models of practical parenting wisdom, delve into the fascinating realms of education, discipline, parenting, legacy, and so much more with specifics like:
- The best methods for developing lifelong immunity, cellular resilience, mental toughness, and overall health in a child
- How to manage your time, deal with overwhelm, care for yourself, and maintain high levels of productivity and health while raising children
- Family mission statements to family brands, traditions, and routines that foster pride and a strong identity in children
- Parents like Naveen Jain reveal how anyone can start a non-profit for their child for generational wealth building
- The crazy, controversial primal secrets of “tiger dad” parents like The Liver King and Joe Desena
- Lenore Skenazy on why she's America's Worst Mom (and why you should be too!)
- Joseph Anew and Emilia Run's advice on respectful parenting, slowing down, and controversial topics like co-sleeping
- Angie Fletcher on the intriguing traditions she began with her oldest child as a single, divorced mother
- My own parents Gary and Pat Greenfield on how they raised me and my 4 siblings to approach the world in a far different, outside-the-box way compared to other kids
- And much more!
I’ve even included a sneak peek just for you in a podcast I recorded, so you can start learning right here, right now!
Listen to me go over my love and logic parenting philosophy, how Boundless Parenting came to be, and other sections directly from the book.
Because parenting isn’t something you have to do alone. Remember the saying “It takes a village”?
