3. Malcolm Saunders: On Biohacking Your Intuition and Eating Intelligently
Malcolm Saunders’ mission is to deeply connect people to their food. Malcolm is a intuitive chef, speaker, and superfood expert who has worked in the field of food and nutrition for close to 20 years. He is the owner & creative visionary of The Light Cellar and the author of Elixir Life: Modern Nutrition Meets Ancient Herbal Wisdom, a guide to learning how to craft your own nourishing and healing beverages. His seminars and workshops have inspired thousands of individuals to recreate their relationship to food and reconnect to their intuition. Malcolm’s latest work illuminates and empowers people to create the life of their dreams, while making a difference in the world.
I began following Malcolm’s work when I discovered his expertise as an alchemist, and his passion for creating raw chocolate at his store, The Light Cellar. His passion for superfoods and superherbs was so inspiring, especially because his creations stem from a place of service, and a desire to teach and inspire others to live and eat in harmony with themselves and the planet we live on.
