Controversial But Very Informative New COVID Docuseries
You'd think that after all of this time, we'd know everything there is to know about pandemic. But it seems the opposite is true. The questions continue to arise…
…is it all a political agenda?
…are there people with economic incentives to hide the truth?
…is it a conspiracy for global control?
…what about the real safety of the vaccine?
Revealed Films is putting the finishing touches on their new docuseries in which they interviewed over 30 credentialed experts to get their take on the truth about COVID. With ever-increasing censorship, Revealed Films is daringly bringing to light the known facts and needed debate concerning COVID as well as the policies and edicts that surround it. These are the same folks that did films such as Psychedelics Revealed, Supplements Revealed, Christ Revealed, and many other excellent series.
COVID Revealed will be released this Tuesday, November 30th, and for a limited time, you can watch it entirely free.

The Best-Tasting, Most Nutritious Hummus I've Ever Had..& It Just Takes 5 Minutes!
Chickpeas, also known as garbanzo beans, originated in the Middle East and have made their way around the world. They are currently the most widely consumed legume. The nutritional properties of each colored variety are very similar, but the antioxidants change with the colors.
Chickpeas are popular for so many reasons. They taste great, and they are an excellent balance of protein, carbohydrates, and fiber with low amounts of fat. A single serving of chickpeas contains ten grams of protein (20 percent of the RDI) with only four grams of fat, mostly polyunsaturated. The protein-to-fat ratio is perfect for building muscle mass and losing extra weight. Chickpeas have a whopping 17 grams (which is 68 percent of the RDI).
Anyways, though I've never personally been a huge chickpea fan and they've never agreed with my gut too much, I recently found a way to eat sprouted chickpeas, inspired by my recent fascinating podcast episode with sprouting expert Doug Evans, in the form of what is, I think, just about the best-tasting and easily-digesting hummus I've ever tasted in my life…
…so here's the recipe!
Doug Evans's Sprouted Chickpea Hummus (makes about 3 cups)
- 2 cups (about 8 ounces) chickpea sprouts (this link shows you how to easily sprout chickpeas…it's basically foolproof)
- 1 raw fermented (no preservative) pickle – yep…a pickle!
- ¼ cup (2oz) pickle brine or sauerkraut brine (that's the liquid in the pickle or sauerkraut jar)
In a high-speed blender, combine the chickpea sprouts, pickle and brine (and if you want, for added taste/complexity, you can throw in lemon juice, garlic, cumin, salt, and pepper) and blend, starting on low speed and working your way up to high, until silky smooth, 3 to 4 minutes, scraping down the sides as needed and adding water if the mixture is too thick. If the blender starts to get hot, stop to cool it for a couple of minutes.
The hummus will keep, covered tightly, for up to 5 days in the refrigerator. Try this easy recipe out and you'll be blown away. Great with some rice crackers, jicama, cucumbers or carrots for dipping. And if you want to learn even more about the potent health benefits of sprouts, I highly recommend Doug's book, The Sprout Book: Tap into the Power of the Planet's Most Nutritious Food.

Introducing My New Training Program!
This week, I announced I will be launching my new training program, Boundless, exclusively on the Ladder app. With my program, I will provide you with my own personal training plan every week, including 5 Tabata/bodyweight sessions, 1 active recovery session, and 1 day dedicated to “biohacking.”
This is the next best thing to training with me in person and at an incredible rate. In addition to programming, you’ll get access to a community of individuals who will also help hold you accountable.
So no more guessing. No more planning. No more excuses. Boundless will take care of all of that for you. We begin training together as a team on Monday, September 20th. To secure your spot, join my waitlist and you’ll get your first week of training FREE.
I Want To Know What You've Got Cooking
I'm so stoked about the positive feedback I've been getting about my new Boundless Cookbook. The cookbook was a labor of love, but I'm really proud of the end result (especially considering I'm definitely not a trained chef).
Now that the Boundless Cookbook is available on Amazon, I have a favor to ask…
If you have the cookbook and you love it, can you hop on over to Amazon and leave a review? Amazon reviews—as I bet you know—are super important. I want your honest feedback and I'll be reading them to hear what you think.
You can leave your review on Amazon right here (and if you don't have a cookbook yet, and you're an Amazon Prime member, you could have your copy at your doorstep as early as tomorrow).
