Dr. Bill Schindler is the author of Eat Like a Human: Nourishing Foods and Ancient Ways of Cooking to Revolutionize Your Health and is an internationally known archaeologist, primitive technologist, and chef. He explores the role of technology in our ancestral dietary past by combining archaeological research and ethnographic fieldwork. He founded and directed the Eastern Shore Food Lab with a mission to preserve and revive ancestral dietary approaches to create a nourishing, ethical, and sustainable food system.

Notable quotes:

  • “The thing about humans that is different from any other animal on the planet is that we eat diets that we are not biologically designed to consume.”
  • “After the industrial revolution in the 1700s, many people were disconnected from producing food and became consumers. This caused an increase in food processing, making it more dangerous.”
  • “Most plant toxins occur in the seeds, nuts, grains, and legumes. Soaking and fermenting help with reducing the toxins.”
  • “Liver is one of the most nutrient-dense foods on the planet.”
