According to a profile by the Washington Post, O'Rourke ate "New Mexican dirt said to have regenerative powers."

"In January, Beto hit the road, much as his father had done before him, and drew energy from the people he met, and — on one stop in New Mexico he didn’t write about in his blog — by eating New Mexican dirt said to have regenerative powers," the profile says.

He reportedly brought some home for his family to eat too.
