Episode Info: Did you know that some scientists say that oaks produce more nuts annually than every other nut tree—both wild and commercial—combined? Nuts, right? (Yeah, yeah—laugh it up. The pun was intended.) Acorns, or oak nuts, are nutritional powerhouses. Depending on the species, a single acorn can contain up to 18% fat, 6% protein, and 68% carbohydrate—with the rest just being water, minerals, and gut-healthy fiber.  Acorns are also great sources of both vitamins A and C, as well as having a long list of essential and nonessential aminos acids.  With those numbers, it’s easy to understand why the native people here in California never resorted to agriculture and why—interestingly—they never spoke of—or created traditions for—famine.

Daniel's helped me, as well as many of my friends, better understand ecology through ancestral lifeways. In today's episode, you'll learn... Why Daniel says he no longer has a morning routine, The wild food Daniel believes is going to revolutionize food production (hint: It's "not a grain"), Why Daniel's use of technology scares him (and why technology should scare you, too), and... Much, much more.
