On this week’s show we welcome Natalie, otherwise known as That Afro Paleo Girl on Instagram. Natalie is a recent friend that I made on Instagram. She has a great account, a fascinating story with the Paleo diet and lifestyle, and she, you could say, challenges the “norm” when it comes to the Paleo community. Natalie and I caught up in busy Toronto on a recent trip where we got together to talk about some things that we have never talked about before on the podcast. In this episode, Natalie shares her struggle with a very rare autoimmune disease called lichen planopilaris, which is a rare form of alopecia, and how Paleo eating has helped her. We learn more about how she was able to find information, support, and a community through social media through this autoimmune disease and why she chose to combat this disease using Paleo. We also talk about the lack of diversity, at least visibly online, in the Paleo community and how we can maybe work to fix that to create a more inclusive culture. Natalie has an extremely positive outlook on life, and if you’re looking for any form of inspiration, this is an episode for you.
