The Paleo Chef tells her story.

Drew welcomes The Paleo Chef, Mary Shenouda to the podcast. Mary is also the creator of famously delicious Phat Fudge. Mary was riddled with physical ailments when she was a child. It wasn’t until she took her health into her own hands and made important dietary changes, that her wellness started. Her paleo cooking was noticed by major athletes and celebrities who enlisted her to be their private chef. Mary shares her story of transitioning from a  corporate employee to becoming the self-funded, successful entrepreneur she is today.
