#UNCORKED | #64 — Whole food nutrition, entrepreneurship and pizza w/ Dave Vukets
Dave became interested in food and nutrition from a young age, as his athletic career took off in high school and he started to look for ways to optimize his performance and recovery. Dave began out his career as an elite cyclist, racing in Vancouver while studying food science and nutrition at UBC. He went on to race in Europe, where he was inspired by their simple, no-nonsense attitude towards food and nutrition to create the ‘Prima Bar’, a whole-food solution for athletic fuel.
Dave’s cycling career came to a close, but he brought with him his passion for whole foods, and love of simple European cuisine, to create two businesses focused on authentic and delicious pizzas. He is co-owner of Il Castello Pizzeria, which serves arguably the best pizza in North Vancouver, and Holy Napoli, which brings Neapolitan Pizza to your local supermarket freezer aisle.
Tune in to hear Dave and Steph talk all things nutrition, food fads, entrepreneurship and time-management.
