“There is nobody out there that can control what you eat or how you live your life. You are the boss of your decisions.”
- Chef Pete Evans, The Monica Kade podcast
Pete Evans is an internationally renowned household chef, restaurateur, author and television presenter. His passion for food and a healthy lifestyle inspires individuals and families around the world.
He’s 20 published books, hosted TV shows like My Kitchen Rules, The Paleo Way, Moveable Feast and many more. If you haven’t already seen it, check out his incredible documentary, The Magic Pill (trailer below) screening on Netflix and iTunes, which he produced himself.
I was really taken aback by Pete’s generous responses to my questions. But what I loved most from our chat was his continuous reminder to (you, the listener) to always be in the moment and make conscious choices. His insights truly encourage you to empower yourself.
Not to mention his passion is bloody infectious! He’s such delightful human being. Stoked to have had him on the show.
