SAPIEN Podcast - Optimum Health & Wellness

Jan 11, 2022

We sat down with Ashleigh VanHouten who is about to release her latest cookbook called Carnivore-ish: 125 Protein-Rich Recipes to Boost Your Health and Build Muscle. In this episode, she provides us with practical advice on resistance training and nose to tail eating. Her message really connects to our Sapien principles and counters most of what is being said in the mainstream nutrition and fitness culture.

Ashleigh is a health coach, podcast host, and author with more than ten years of experience. Her podcast, Muscle Maven Radio, has been downloaded more than 1.5 million times, and she’s interviewed many of the leading minds in exercise and nutrition methodology.

Ashleigh is a former nationally ranked natural figure competitor, and has competed in powerlifting and CrossFit. She holds a CrossFit Strongman Certification, CrossFit Olympic Lifting Certification, Primal Blueprint Coaching Certification, Precision Nutrition Level 1 Certification, and a Certification in Applied Women’s Physiology and Training, and is one of the leading authorities in understanding the nutrient density of animal protein – her first book, It Takes Guts, is all about the health benefits of organ meats.
