Autumn Smith of Paleovalley on healing from IBS & anxiety, navigating kids' snack culture, & growing a "real food" business.
On today's episode of the podcast, I interview Autumn Smith, the co-founder of Paleovalley and Wild Pastures.
She holds a Masters in Holistic Nutrition, is a Certified Eating Psychology Coach and FDN Practitioner, and was an absolute joy to interview!
We talk about our health journeys and how she resolved her struggles with IBS, anxiety, and her relationship with food when she started focusing on the quality of her nutrition, not just the quantity.
As her health completely transformed, she became driven to make healthy, nutrient-dense products more accessible to her family, clients, and fellow parents.
As a dietitian and mom myself, it was great to chat about how out of hand our kids' snack culture has gotten and what companies like Paleovalley can do to help change it. Our kids and our own health are too often hijacked by hyper-palatable, processed foods, and accessible, real food options not only lead to better health and cognition, but they're also delicious.
If you've been following me or talk with any of my clients, you'll know Paleovalley's beef sticks are my go-to snack. I always have a few in my purse or car just in case I get in a pinch and need healthy nutrition.
