Debbie Fred, creator and owner of the Paleo Eats Energy Bar joins me on the seventh episode of Tough Cookie Podcast and we talk about having passion for what you do, what Paleo means, and breaking into the “bar” business with no prior experience (hint: it takes passion!)

Tough Cookie is a podcast that celebrates badass women in food – from product makers, to chefs, to digital food boss ladies. If you are or know someone who works in food, please send me an email at darlene (at) picklejarstudios (dot) com and tell me about it! Now booking for the 2017 podcast season. 

Listen on your favorite media player, and please leave a rating and review!
