10 Questions with Pete Evans


Pete, thanks so much for taking the time to chat to us!

  1. Tell us 3 words to describe yourself.

Curious & open minded.

  1. What was it about the Paleo diet that initially caught your interest? How did that transition into your Paleo recipe books and hosting The Paleo Way?

My family and I implemented the philosophy and it worked and still works too this day and each year I am becoming healthier and healthier because of the simple principles that are part of the foundation. To translate that foundation into delicious recipes is one of the joys I get to share with many people and creating cookbooks, movies and tv shows as well as podcasts and the free 10 week online program is a great way of expressing this.

  1. And what about the Keto diet?

It is the same as what we promote through the paleo way.   Obviously no dairy as it can be highly inflammatory for so many.

  1. What do you think is the number one most concerning problem about the modern day diet?

That people don’t seem to care of the connection that every single mouthful of food is either keeping you healthy or taking your body out of balance, which can cause illness both mental, physical and spiritually.

  1. Do you have any tips for us on how to stay healthy when dining out?

Stick to well sourced meat & seafood is the number 1 rule.

  1. What’s one city you’ve never been to that you would love to #JustNibblit?

I would love to visit Moscow.

  1. What are your top 3 spots for brekkie? (Melbourne & Sydney)

St Ali in Melbourne is extremely great!

Victor Churchill in Sydney is perfect to pick up a liver terrine for breakfast which I do quite often.

  1. And, what are your top 3 spots for dinner? (Melbourne & Sydney)

St Peter in Oxford street Sydney for amazing seafood.

Queen chow in encore for delicious Chinese as well as flower drum in Melbourne.

Azuma in chiefly tower in Sydney for Japanese and Nobu in Melbourne for Japanese too.

  1. Now the hard question… what is your most favourite restaurant globally?

The best restaurant in the world….probably Takashi in New York as you can cook your own grass fed beef offal for yourself over little Japanese grills.

  1. If you could only eat three things for the rest of your life, what would they be?




  1. Lastly, what’s one thing people wouldn’t know about you?

I am fascinated about the healing qualities of psychedelics and am making a film on this currently
