Here at Re:Wild, our overarching aim is to help our clients re:set, re:connect and re:build to live less-processed, slightly 'wilder' lives.
Why? Because I realised that I had become totally disconnected from the food chain and the impact of my choices and habits. As my followers well know, I believe that every meal needs a source of protein, lots of veggies, and good fats. But, the ‘old me’ was more worried about quantity than quality, and never questioned where my food really came from, or the broader impact of my choices.
Then, I met my ‘hippy at heart’ wife. She was lucky enough to grow up on a small farm on the East Coast of Australia. Here, free to roam pastured dairy and beef cattle outnumber people, everyone takes huge pride in their veggie gardens, and people seem a lot more connected to what nature actually had in mind for us. She highlighted the impact of my choices, and questioned whether my meat and eggs were pastured (raised outdoors on open fields), and whether I really needed to eat avocados year-round.
My old ‘quantity over quality’ mentality is causing all sorts of problems around ill-health, impacts of 'big ag', sustainability, and climate change.
Speaking to my peers in the fitness industry, my followers, and my friends and family, I realised that I was not the only with blinders on. So, I set out to be better. To re:educate myself and my followers, and to take my family on a series of educational adventures that would re:connect us with the origins of our food and produce. I wanted to see it for myself. How did my food grow and/or live before it ended up on my plate? What kind of life did it lead and what are the indirect impacts of the way it was grown?
The idea behind this project is to Re:educate ourselves (and others along the way) on how to shop better, whilst shining a spotlight on great small-scale producers who are already doing better.
To help people achieve this, we started this blog series – “Re:Wilding a Welshman”, intended to help people re:connect with what nature intended, specifically by improving people's understanding of:
In a nutshell, this blog series is about wholesome, no-nonsense living that doesn't cost the earth. I can’t wait to bring you along for the ride. Things are about to get wild!
