Diana Rodgers

Diana Rodgers is a real food licenced, registered dietitian and nutritionist living on a working organic farm west of Boston, USA.

She runs an active nutrition practice where she helps people with weight, metabolic and intestinal issues recover their health through diet and lifestyle. She's also an author, host of the sustainable dish podcast, and the mum of two active kids.

She speaks at universities and conferences internationally about nutrition and sustainability, social justice, animal welfare and food policy issues. She's also working on a new book and docu-series exploring the important role of animals in our food system.


Listen as we discover:

  • Why does mainstream media push against the most common sense ways to live for humankind?
  • What does ‘nutrient density’ mean?
  • What has she learned about nutrition from living on a farm?


Also, Diana will share with us:

  • Where the modern vegetarian movement came from, and what's behind it now.
  • The Protein Leverage Hypothesis.
  • The amount of meat that she normally recommends people eat.
  • The kinds of she recommends most.


Diana is an inspirational person in many ways, and it was a joy to have her share her knowledge with us:

“I get how people assume that they are causing less harm by eating a meat free diet, but that actually couldn't be further from the truth.”

“Even the worst managed cow on grass is still better than industrial monocropping.”

“Every species of animal has a biologically appropriate diet.”

“I think the goal should be for humans to thrive!”
