We’re back with Episode 31 of the Real World Paleo Podcast. Christine interviews Hilary Bromberg, founder of Barefoot Provisions, the “consciously curated” online store for the primal foodie, and strategy director and principal at Egg, a communications firm that works exclusively with sustainable brands. Hilary shares how she became interested in the ancestral lifestyle and food and the epiphanies that have transformed her relationship with food, her body, nature, and her work. We also discuss cultural trends and what it means to be a conscious consumer.
