165. Is The Anti-Meat Narrative Legit? Understanding The Food System with Paleovalley Cofounder, Autumn Smith

Did you know that in 2022, red meat consumption dropped by a whopping 44%? Animal fat utilization declined by 78%, butter by 68%, and margarine increased by a staggering 192%! The mainstream anti-meat narrative has altered our collective beliefs about nutrition – and potentially with dire consequences.


But don’t worry, we’re not here to scare you – in fact, we’re here to empower you with the knowledge you need to make the best choices for your body. This episode is all about reclaiming vitality through nutrition. We’ll take you on a journey through the world of food and agriculture, revealing the powerful impact it has on your body and the truth behind the greenwashing, low prices and other product label illusions that complicate our food choices.


Our amazing guest for today is Autumn Smith, cofounder of Paleovalley. Their mission is to create products with integrity that are free from problematic ingredients and teeming with ingredients that promote vibrant health. They prioritize nutrient density in an industry that prioritizes everything else, and believe that every dietary choice and every added ingredient is a powerful opportunity to love and care for yourself.


In this episode, Autumn fills us in on regenerative agriculture, climate change, and the vital role animals play in our ecosystem. She shares a sneak peek into her exciting upcoming docuseries, “Rethink Meat,” which is being created to help dispel the myth that meat is dangerous. We also discuss the dangers of conventional agriculture and the critical role that soil health plays in our food choices. I hope this conversation helps you make sense of terms like “pasture-raised” and “free-range”, so you can make the best choices when buying products and avoid being misled by labels. If you identify as a vegetarian or vegan, you’ll be especially sure to learn something new 😉
