Paleovalley’s mission is to help people get back to optimal health, so they only carry products that pass their strict standards.  Our family uses several of their products and we’ve come to love their Organic Pasture Raised Meat Sticks, their Essential C Complex and their unflavored bone broth powder. Our kids love their Superfood Bars and often have one before jiujitsu.

Paleo valley always prioritizes health over profit and they never skimp on ingredients. They also have a 60-day, 100% money back guarantee.

I'm excited to sit down with Autumn Smith. We talk about her journey, the role of nutrition on mental health, and much more. Make sure to listen to the full interview to learn more.

Autumn Smith 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.
