New Discoveries Of The Week: Cool New Things I'm Trying, Books I'm Reading, And More!
The Best Jerky I've Ever Had, Hands-Down
While I'm a big fan of a perfectly seared steak, I’ve never been a huge jerky guy because I’ve yet to find one with a texture that I really enjoy (you know how most of them are: stringy, tough, dehydrated, preservative-laden crap)…
The new jerky from Carnivore Snax absolutely takes the cake in terms of texture and flavor and is made with only two ingredients: meat and salt.
It’s almost like biting directly into a juicy ribeye steak, pork loin, lamb burger, New York strip, or any of their other extremely unique cuts.
And as a bonus, Carnivore Snax uses only regeneratively raised meat, which is “better than grass-fed” in that it also benefits the life of the animals and the environment.
These things make the perfect healthy on-the-go snack—meaning you no longer have to stoop to paying $12 for a packet of tough, dry, salted-to-the-moon jerky from your local Grab-n-Go gas station.
So whether you're full-on carnivore, keto, Paleo, or just want a high-quality, protein-rich snack for travel, adventure, or post-workout, I can't recommend this jerky enough. It's seriously impressive stuff.
Infoceutical Fertility Recipe for the Fellas
I've been experimenting with something called an Infopathy device, which “imprints” substances like water or your body with “infoceuticals,” or ICs. ICs are electromagnetic signals generated using algorithms or recorded from substances that have healing, therapeutic, or other biological effects—everything from St. John's Wort to coffee to Viagra. (If you want to learn more about how the Infopathy device works, check out my podcast with Anton Fedorenko).
PS: Regardless of your current baby-making status, if you want to be a healthy, vibrant human, you share care about your fertility, which is why I'd recommend checking out my most recent article on fertility as well as my podcast with Dr. Amin Herati.
Anyway, in a recent “fertility cocktail” I cooked up with my Infopathy device (I have both the Hummer and the IC Pad), I imprinted the following substances into a glass of water that I proceeded to drink, which are all known to have benefits for men's health, sperm count, drive, vitality, and more:
- Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG)
- Walnut (tree nut)
- Pumpkin Seed
- Panax Ginseng
- Red Clover

Product Of The Week
::: One Short. Every Sport. :::
There's no worse feeling than wearing the wrong kind of shorts…
The good news is, riding and chafing are a thing of the past ever since I tried the Kore Short from Vuori. I'm frankly obsessed with these shorts, even wearing them outside in the winter for a bit of masochistic cold thermo.
Now, you can almost always find me in Vuori clothes no matter what the occasion, whether it's working out, a cocktail party, dinner with friends and family, you name it. Their clothes are that good.
But the Kore Shorts are next level, featuring a classic athletic fit, falling just above the knee with an anywhere-and-everywhere versatility. And, depending on what you prefer, they have both lined and unlined short options, with plenty of colors and styles to choose from.
Plus, (and this is a big plus, fellas) you can go commando in confidence with the built-in, breathable boxer-brief liner.
Seriously, you haven't lived until you've tried these shorts (or any of Vuori's clothes, for that matter).

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.
*The FDA hasn't evaluated these statements. Kion products are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.
