Meet The Modern Revolutionary Roza Ferdowsmakan.

Show Notes:

roza ferdowsmakan is a tech founder and slow food enthusiast who seeks to normalize farm-to-table for everyone, everywhere. she’s the founder of bites, a free mobile app that connects foodies (those seeking to taste their way through life and open to world cuisines) with local chefs, such as home cooks, culinary students, and professional chefs, for in-home, farm-to-table dining experiences, with ingredients sourced from local growers. these local growers include urban farms, micro farms, co-ops, community gardens, backyard gardens, and family-owned small farms.
bites is a tool that facilitates an ecosystem where all of the participants benefit. what’s in it for foodies, chefs, and local farms? for foodies, bites is about culinary adventures at all budgetary levels, so that more socio-economic levels can participate in farm-to-table. for foodies, it’s also about celebrating diversity through the various cultures and cuisines that come into foodies’ homes, and it’s about community building. for the culinary talent on the app, it’s about economic empowerment (jobs) – these home cooks, culinary students, and professional chefs generate an income with zero overhead, while setting their own pricing, availability and menus. for the local farms, it’s about visibility and support. bites is interested in sending chefs and foodies alike direct to local growers, increasing their profits and decreasing their waste, while diverting from landfills.

The High Cost of Diabetes

Diabetes has become an epidemic in the United States. Over 100 million people in this country are living with diabetes or pre-diabetes, according to the Center for Disease Control (CDC). Diabetes causes significant life changes for patients, who have to constantly monitor what they eat, and keep track of their blood sugar.

Mismanaging a patient’s health can have life threatening consequences. This creates a significant problem, and not just medically, but financially as well. The cost of diabetes in this country impacts health care expenses, pharmaceutical expenses, the patients ability to earn a living wage, and it financially impacts the employer as well.

According to diabetes.org, the cost of diagnosed diabetes for 2017 is $327 billion, $90 billion of which is attributed to reduced productivity to employers. We spend over $106 billion dollars just in medications and testing supplies for diabetic patients. These are just the expenses for those that are diagnosed as a diabetic, and do not include those that are unaware that they have diabetes, and it also fails to include the costs associated with being pre-diabetic. Now, here’s a scary statistic, according to the CDC, 1 in 4 Americans don’t even know that they have diabetes. Over 7 million people are living with this condition and have no idea.

The financial burden that diabetes puts on our healthcare system is high, but it’s also high for the patients as well. Pharmacytimes.com reports that those with diabetes spend more than double what their healthy peers do on medical expenses each year.  Those without insurance often go without treatment and are 168% more likely to visit the emergency room than their counterparts with insurance. For all patients, inadequate care can lead to hypertension, heart disease, blindness, amputation, and even death.

Notes From The Road: Cenote in Austin, TX

Some cities don’t like me. Dallas, for reasons I can’t understand, just doesn’t like me.

Austin LOVES me.

It’s always friendly, surprising and puts me in a relaxed joyful state.

This brief journey was for a business conference. A two day turn-around from my home in Chandler, AZ. Privacy be damned, I let the internet suggest where to get my morning coffee by virtue of my location. Google generally knows where I am, and I put my hand up asking for guidance.

It was a good trade.

Friendly people welcomed me into a quaint atmosphere for which I was a less cool than I should have been. But, they overlooked my shortcomings and set me into the day happy and caffeinated.

Thank you Cenote.

New Podcast: Stinky Honey

You can now listen to Stinky Honey. Here is an exerpt:

My wife’s palate is very sharp. She can parse flavors in dishes down to the spices and the addresses of the pigs who gave their lives for the pork in our stew.

With great tasting powers come great smelling powers. Which can be a blessing and a curse.

“Honey,” she says while I have come in from working on a small farm we are shaping to lay next her for a brief moment, “you need a shower.”

Sleep Your Way to Success

 

We don’t reccommend many supplmements to the people we work with – however, we have found Magnesium to be an amzingly effective sleep aid for many people.

I personally have always struggled getting to sleep, and Magnesium works great for me.

Magnesium is responsible for over 300 enzyme reactions in your body, particularly in the bones, muscles, and brain. It has an important role in the nervous system for helping you calm down and be able to sleep.

Hard Back Copies

I’ve personally been impacted by the message Mr. Deeley so eloquently presents in the following pages. As someone who most often works with clients behind the scenes, you have almost certainly never heard my name. I found anonymity far more comfortable than being in the spotlight, and i decided long ago that I preferred it that way. The fact that you are now reading these words serves as a testament to the powerful message this book contains.”

– Angela M. Woods

“This book is not a roadmap; it is more like a bottle washing up on our individual shores. Inside is what’s hidden in all of us: a gift being desperately pled for, and offered, at the same time.”
