Today’s guest is Jason Thomas, athlete, explorer and founder of Pili Hunters. Ever heard of a pili nut? Well, just a few years back, Jason basically introduced the incredible pili nut to north America. On a trip to the Philippines, Jason discovered this super nut — a richer, fattier, low-carb nut, packed with nutrients. The route Jason took to finding his passion and founding his company is definitely special. From growing up in Alaska, to boxing in Las Vegas, to leading mountaineering treks around the world, kite-surfing, and doing cross fit — Jason is one of those people who has pretty much “done it all.” In this episode, Jason shares how a serious stint with rhabdo led to a year-long recovery process and, ultimately, to the pili nut! We’ll also learn all about the health benefits and harvesting of the pili nut and why Jason decided to do business the “old-fashioned” way. Take a listen to learn more about this awesome product taking the keto world by storm!
