Autumn Smith (IG: @autumnfladmosmith) is the co-founder of Paleovalley and Wild Pastures. She holds a Masters in Holistic Nutrition, she's a Certified Eating Psychology Coach, and a Certified FDN Practitioner. Autumn's passion for health began with her own struggles with IBS and anxiety: despite a career as a professional dancer and celebrity fitness trainer, her own health was in shambles. Desperate for a cure, Autumn 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. In this episode, we discuss: Transitioning Paleovalley from California to Colorado Supporting farmers using regenerative agriculture Sourcing 100% grass-fed and grass-finished meat Growing nutrient-dense produce Making regenerative organic certification (ROC) today’s standard Shifting our focus to the bigger picture How Autumn maintains balance as a mom, wife, and entrepreneur Daily life in The Kindergarten Pod The challenges of being a “yes person" What does it mean to be a highly sensitive person?
