Big Ben and the Biohacking Conference: Mother Dirt Goes to London

Blog Post Img

Thanks for following our story on social media while we traveled this weekend. Mother Dirt had a great opportunity to attend the Biohacking Summit and have Jasmina Aganovic, president of Mother Dirt, speak on a panel with other experts. It was an amazing weekend, and we left inspired by the great minds we met at the conference, and the beauty and hospitality of the UK.

Here is a play by play of our whirlwind 3 day UK trip!!

Day 1:
Packed and excited and ready to go. Looking forward to an exciting and educational work experience, and decided to celebrate our successful trip in advance ;)



Arriving in London after an easy flight, it was clear that our first activity had to be breakfast. We jumped on the tube and headed to The Quince Tree, a lovely restaurant located in a fragrant and bright nursery. They had stunning and fascinating plants, like this CARNIVOROUS one, that turned our meal into a nature adventure.

  



I studied abroad in England during both high school and college and I have been MISSING my full English Breakfast -- and The Quince Tree did not disappoint.

After a short nap, we departed for meal #2. I truly planned to get my gut microbiome exposed to lots of London treats. Nama - An Artisanal Raw Food restaurant - was a wonderful experience. Raw food is either never cooked or only heated until 42 degrees Celsius. The concepts behind
After a short nap, we departed for meal #2. I truly planned to get my gut microbiome exposed to lots of London treats. Nama - An Artisanal Raw Food restaurant - was a wonderful experience. Raw food is either never cooked or only heated until 42 degrees Celsius. The concepts behind this style of diet center around the changes that occur to nutrients and proteins when they're heated. It's meat, dairy and gluten free friendly as well as vegan, organic, and unprocessed. And wait for it… delicious! For real, I gobbled up every bite.

Dinner was zucchini lasagna with crispy kale paired with two decadent glasses of white wine, which apparently might be good for you. Dessert was blueberry cheesecake and tiramisu. I had no problem eating both desserts. The dessert photo is from before I was done. That was intentional.

The staff at Nama were kind and accommodating. I was able to pop down to the kitchen and meet the staff, they were all young and eager to meet a fan.

  



Day 2:
After a good night's sleep, I was pumped for a full day. We started the morning with yoga at the Sky Garden, and boosting our microbiomes. The 40-person class took place on the 35th floor, in a cold, echoey room, with killer views. It was definitely not your typical yoga class.

     



After the yoga class we headed to the Biohacking Summit, the real reason we were here! The summit focused on finding ways to bring your body to optimal health. We were invited to the summit by Pando, the company hosting the summit. We met the organizers, Jamie Ward and Jake Stott, at the Bulletproof conference in October - it was great to reconnect!

The crowd at the conference was energetic and educated, with attendees who had already begun hacking with apple cider vinegar hair rinses, meal replacements, digital health, meal foraging, wearables, and vitamins. Everyone was intrigued by AOB and our products.

The conference speakers were fascinating and diverse, with a focus on wellness and health. Jasmina Aganovic, President of Mother Dirt, presented in style on some super funky saddle chairs by Salli, which provide ergonomic support to your body. Jasmina was joined on the panel by Veli-Jussi Jalkanen from Salli and Simon Wegerif from ithlete, an app that helps athletes with their recovery time, fatigue, and even stress using Heart Rate Variability. Everyone inspired interesting discussions centered around the future of the health and wellness field.

There was even a Swedish Memory Champion, Mattias Ribbing, who took a break from enthralling the audience to chat with me about communicating with my two-year old son in ways that will help sharpen his memory. Mother Dirt was ~obviously~ a popular booth, and we were thrilled to meet so many Mist-ers face to face. It was amazing to connect with people, hear their stories and feedback, and establish relationships with those who support us and are by our side in our mission!

Day 3:
Our last day. We woke up and went to the Savoy (fancy fancy) for ~obviously~ another full English breakfast. Drool-worthy items of note: warm muffins, brown and white toast, buttery croissants, and the classic pile of eggs, beans, mushrooms, roasted tomatoes, potatoes, sausage, and english bacon. And I ate everything.

  



As we wound down the trip, I couldn't leave without having a proper pint. We grabbed a sidewalk table at a pub near Big Ben and spent our last London hours in the sun.
