Darin Olien is the "Superman of Superfoods" and the "Indiana Jones of the Best Ingredients" on the planet. For over 20 years, he has literally roamed the world - and you already know this if you watched Season One of his Netflix docu-series with Zac Efron, “Down to Earth,” where they traveled the planet to explore the secrets of good health, longevity, and sustainability. Olien is also the author of the NY Times best-selling book, “SuperLife: The five fixes that will keep you healthy, fit and eternally awesome.” I was stunned to learn just how much we have in common - we’re both from the Midwest, we both are sons of Fathers who grew up around farming and agriculture, we were both collegiate athletes, we’re both NY Times best-selling authors on the subject of health, and today we both spend our days sourcing the best ingredients to bring you healthy, sustainable nutrition in the plantstrong foods we create. As you’ll hear today, Darin speaks THE TRUTH, but in a way that is filled with purpose and compassion. He discusses: How he and Zac propelled the success of "Down to Earth" without being too preachy and off-putting How he approaches the subject of climate change, nutrition, and environmental issues, especially with those who may think differently than he does His favorite superfoods on the planet The life-changing impact of his Father's death The abundance and life-giving experience of eating plants His perspective on life, particularly after the tragedy of losing his home A touch on his fatal conveniences series This is a man who, through self-motivation and determination, has become a force in the health and nutrition industry. He is living proof that one person can make a global impact.
