New Discoveries Of The Week: Cool New Things I'm Trying, Books I'm Reading, And More!
Baby Food That's So Delicious, Even Adults Love It (*ahem* Guilty)
One topic I'm often asked about is childhood nutrition, including the best food to feed growing babies (aside from breast milk, of course, which is nature’s perfect carb/fat/protein/ketone combo).
But first, in case you're wondering…no, this cute little fella is not my child, but he sure does like to wander around in my living room with his tiny grocery shopping cart full of baby goodies.
Now, there are a lot of junky brands out there selling baby “food” and formula that is chock full of processed ingredients and sugar, and essentially devoid of the nutrition that growing kids need. Sadly, there are VERY few brands that do it right.
Serenity Kids is one of the few that actually makes impeccable baby food. Their recipes mimic the macronutrient profile of breast milk, and they have both vegan and omnivore choices, complete with taste-bud thrilling flavors using only grass-fed and pasture-raised meat.
In fact, their formulas are so delicious and nutrient-dense that you'll also find me (yes, a grown adult) occasionally chomping on their baby food packets for a quick snack or dropping in some of their super-clean A2 milk formula for a gut-nourishing addition to my morning smoothie. Yeah, this baby food is that good.
So, why am I telling you all this? Well, my friends over at Serenity Kids recently dropped their brand new line of nutrient-dense herb and meat pouches, including the savory- mouth-watering flavors chicken and thyme, beef pot roast, grass-fed bison, and turmeric chicken.

The New Skin Serum From Greenfield Botanics (Designed By My Aunt!)
I've used some kind of high-quality, organic serum in my skincare routine for years, and have seen a remarkable improvement in my skin’s texture, radiance, and firmness as a result.
The Greenfield Botanics Pure Radiance Serum has been my formula of choice for a while now, and is jam-packed with certified organic ingredients like Organic Aloe Vera Leaf Juice, Organic Golden Jojoba Oil, Organic Amla, Organic Carrot Seed Oil, Organic Rose Geranium Oil, and many more potent, skin-nourishing ingredients. It’s lightweight enough to be my go-to, daily skin serum, it helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and damage, and the fragrance is absolutely amazing (for both dudes and ladies!).
You may also dig some of their other products I've been recently adding into my daily skincare mix, such as their Peppermint Toner, which includes organic ingredients designed to balance the skin's PH and minimize the appearance of pores, as well as the Every Day Face and Body Oil, ideal for moisturizing skin of all types with antioxidants and nourishing plant oils. In fact, I love to use this exact one-two combo especially right after the hot tub or a sauna session.
If you’re fanatical about only using the cleanest ingredients on your precious skin microbiome, you'll want to make Greenfield Botanics part of your daily self-care ritual and treat yourself to the at-home spa experience your skin deserves.

My Brand New Boundless Cookbook NFT Collection
Yeah, yeah, I know that this new world of NFTs (Non-Fungible Tokens) is a bit of a foreign concept to some people, maybe even you…
…but I personally love the idea of being able to own a piece of digital art that ONLY I can own, that can never be taken away from me or sold or copied without my secure permission, and that, perhaps most importantly, is linked to some kind of a physical value.
For example, if you own a digital football card of your favorite quarterback when the season starts, you could get season tickets on the fifty-yard line to all their games…
…or if you own an art piece designed by your favorite artists, you get to have a private online art creation class with them…
…or (*ahem*) if you own a mouthwatering digital recipe art by your favorite biohacker wannabe chef (heh), you unlock a private cooking class with that chef.
Did that last example ring a bit close to home? If it did, you're on the right track because…
…TADA! I just launched my own 12 recipe NFT collection.
That's right: you can now go “bid” to own your own digital recipe card that features one of the tasty, unique, biohacked recipes from my Boundless Cookbook…AND…if you own that recipe card (meaning, you've decided not to turn around and sell it at a profit on an NFT auction, which of course, you're also free to do), this summer you're going to get to take a private online cooking class and have a private online dinner party with me!
Ready, set, GO!
Click here to choose which recipe(s) you want to bid on and own, and when you do, you'll unlock instant access to secret content that automatically gets you into a private, online VIP group of just 12 people who get to hang, cook, eat, and party with me this summer.

So, will you please consider clicking here now to pre-order the book for yourself (and perhaps a few of the special people in your life, just in time for Easter season)?
As a token of my gratitude for you pre-ordering the book, I’ll share with you an instantly downloadable copy of the first three chapters from the book so that you can get started right away, along with a 20% off voucher for up to five copies of the Spiritual Disciplines Journal (which you’ll find to be the perfect companion to Endure.) In case you haven’t read it yet, I’m also including the digital version of my book Fit Soul.

Product Of The Week
::: Save 10% On This Mood-Boosting, Healthy Alcohol Swap :::
Kava is a natural drink prepared from the roots of a plant native to islands in the South Pacific, called Piper Methysticum, where it has been consumed for its non-habit forming, relaxing, and social-enhancing qualities for over 3,000 years.
Kava historically has been used by the islanders as a safe, natural alternative to drugs and alcohol, because it can bring about significant mood-boosting, cognitive enhancing, and anxiety-relieving effects. This allows users to loosen up and connect easier during social interactions while maintaining complete sobriety.
Kava’s effects are often described as a calm, euphoric, enhanced state of natural sobriety.
However, most kava products currently on the market are not classified as “true kava,” and are instead kava-like products that carry almost none of the same effects or safety as traditional kava…
…Except for TRU KAVA™.
TRU KAVA™ makes traditional kava products, including kava oil, energy shots, and sparkling kava drinks (coming soon) that are shelf-stable, full-spectrum, and 3rd party lab tested for quality and safety.
Click here to experience an all-natural euphoria with TRU KAVA (without the unpleasant side effects that come from alcohol, drugs, etc.) and use code ben10 to save 10% on your order.

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).
Kion Product Of The Week: Get The High-Quality Sleep You Need With The Brand New Kion Sleep
Approximately 70% of US adults experience at least one bad night of sleep every month, and one-third report getting less than seven hours of sleep each night…not good.
Energy for life, every day, begins with your sleep. Ki is the vital energy inside each and every one of us that enables us to fully experience long, active, and joyful lives. And getting deep, restful sleep each night is vital to Ki. Yet, it's often an afterthought for most as we pursue foods, drinks, and supplements to create this energy for us.
That's where the newest Kion Sleep comes in to save the day (or, in this case, the night).
Kion Sleep uniquely harnesses the power of three proven amino acids to naturally work with your brain’s neurotransmitters—bringing you effective and natural sleep support. A unique blend of L-tryptophan, L-theanine, and PharmaGABA® help you:
- Fall asleep fast
- Stay asleep
- Improve sleep quality
All the ingredients for a good night’s sleep!
Sleep is as essential for human energy and movement as food and water, and without it, our health and wellbeing can suffer dramatically.
Get your hands on the all-new Kion Sleep so you can “rest assured” that you're getting the best, high-quality sleep possible.
*The FDA hasn't evaluated these statements. Kion products are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.

Ben. I was fortunate enough to score one of the NFT’s. Stoked! But the link on open sea that takes you to provide your contact info on the Boundless Cooking site is broken!
