After completing a 66 day Whole 30 in 2015, Kathryn Kelley was sold on paleo. It wasn’t until 2017, however, that she revamped her website into what is now A Yolk of Genius as a way to share her recipes with as many people as possible. (Check out her Smoky Salmon Sliders recipe here!)

So how did paleo change Kathryn’s life? She has struggled with lifelong asthma, cystic acne and stomach issues for as long as she can remember, but by cutting out junk from the diet — what paleo is all about — Kathryn slowly thought there was something to it.

After realizing that law wasn’t her passion, Kathryn took a leap of faith and quit her job as a lawyer to pursue her passion for cooking and healthy living. She started doing freelance law work while putting her heart into revamping her blog; she knew in her heart that it was the right decision and hopes to share her journey and passion for paleo with others.

She also started an energy bite business – @bfbites!
