Do you want to live a healthier and more robust life? The key to living a full, healthy, and joyous life lies within the foods we eat—and our relationship to them.

Olympic medalist Dotsie Bausch alongside Baywatch actress and certified health coach, Alexandra Paul, take listeners of all ages on a journey to optimal health and stamina through plant based eating. Dotsie and Alexandra, who both fought back from severe food addictions in their twenties, interview expert nutritionists, pro athletes, innovative thought leaders, physicians and plant-based celebrities. Through their stories, you’ll learn how to optimize your health and pave a path for a more meaningful life. So get inspired and join the Switch4Good revolution.

episode 136: 136 - Lab Grown Meat Will Change the World with Eat Just Co-Founder Josh Balk


To create a vegan world, we need to give the people chicken. Sounds like an oxymoron, but the VP of Farm Animal Protection at the Humane Society of the United States is paving the way for people to ditch the cruelty and still enjoy the foods they love. His career spans undercover investigation work, negotiating with corporations to include plant-based options, supporting companies the produce plant-based animal alternatives, and passing legislation in favor of animal welfare. He co-founded the internationally known JUST (the makers of vegan eggs and now, no-kill chicken) and was instrumental in passing Prop 12 in California. Josh’s affable personality and positive energy make him a delight to listen to—when Josh speaks, even the darkest topics glimmer with hope. 


What we discuss in this episode:

 

- Josh’s transition from baseball hopeful to animal advocate

 

- Going undercover in a chicken slaughterhouse

 

- The founding of JUST and its run-in with the egg lobby

 

- The first “no-kill” (clean meat) chicken 

 

- The significance of Prop 12 in California in 2018

 

- The Humane Society of the United States
