Paleo Pantry Makeover

99


99 simbi per session - Virtual OK

I will investigate your fridge and your pantry, dissect your eating habits, and offer concrete plans on how you can be happier, healthier, all while spending less time cooking. Did you know canola oil is bad for you but lard is good? How about that brown rice is actually worse for your health than white rice? Olive Oil is great on a dressing, but toxic if you cook with it at high heat. Spices are basically useless after they are a year old. Facts like this are things we aren't taught in school and have to learn the hard way. I've done all the hard work learning these things so I can help my family eat healthier and avoid chronic disease.

Training & Qualifications


I am passionately interested in cooking, sustainable food, and functional medicine. Much of current dominant thinking about diet and medicine is making us sicker. I believe in looking more deeply at hunter/gatherer and paleolithic era diets to better understand the keys to optimum human health.

Availability & Preferences


I can do about two of these per month. Nights and weekends are best.

Trading Preference: I prefer being paid in simbi

I am so glad I reached out to Xavier for help with a new business idea! As both an experienced professional and coach he found just the right way to ...support my idea while helping me avoid the common pitfalls of starting a new business. I'm so glad we were able to connect here. My business partner and I are so fortunate to have been able to talk with him first so that we will focus on building and testing a successful business idea before getting distracted by domain names and website etc. Thank you, Xavier for sharing your hard won knowledge so generously.show more

Xavier is amazing! I greatly appreciate his business savvy and willingness to share his expertise. He had provided some hugely helpful advice for my start-up 10Power.

Xavier is one of the greatest entrepreneurs of his time. Not only do those around him look up to his humility and brilliance, but he is incredible at execution. Lots of entrepreneurs can raise money and inspire, but Xavier actually gets it done, making his investors and customers very happy. I have purchased products from one of his businesses, and know many people who have worked with him directly. If there is an entrepreneur to get advice from, it's Xavier.
