This episode is dedicated to the healing Paleo diet, and the idea that with a proper diet in place, you can heal.

The Paleo diet focuses on lean meats and fish, nuts and seeds, fruits and vegetables. On the diet, dairy, sugar, legumes and grains are avoided.

This diet was the basis for how my guest today healed, and she’s ready to share how she went from massive symptoms to feeling fantastic and creating a company from it all.

Autumn Fladmo Smith is today’s guest!

Question: Do you ever “meet” (it’s like ” ” because I only met Autumn via the podcast) someone and think, “Where have they been all my life?”

This happened while I was recording this episode with Autumn Smith, the co-founder of Paleovalley.

We had an instant connection, and it’s going to be very apparent as you listen to the show today.

Who is Autumn Smith?

Before I share more on today’s episode, here is a little more on Autumn:

Autumn Fladmo Smith is the co-founder of Paleovalley and Wild Pastures, holds a Masters in Holistic Nutrition, a Certified Eating Psychology Coach, and a Certified FDN Practitioner.

Her passion for health began with her own struggles with IBS and anxiety: despite a career as a professional dancer and celebrity fitness trainer, Autumn’s own health was in shambles.

Desperate for a cure, she and her husband Chas stumbled upon the paleo diet in 2011 and within a month of beginning it, her health was completely transformed.

Autumn then made it her mission to share the information she had learned with as many people as possible: she is the co-founder of Paleovalley, an organic whole-food supplement and paleo snack food company that prioritizes nutrient density and food quality.

In 2018, she took things a step further and launched her second business with her husband: Wild Pastures, a regenerative pasture-based meat delivery service.

Wild Pastures makes supporting sustainable agriculture and local, small farms easy for consumers. She lives in Boulder, CO with her husband and their son, Maverick.
