Mary Shenouda is a highly sought-after private chef to A-list actors, professional athletes, and high-octane entrepreneurs. Mary burst on the scene in 2013 under the nom de cuisine, The Paleo Chef, after leaving a successful career in the start-up world to pursue her passion for the transformative power of clean-eating—a passion sparked by her own transformational experience. A long-time sufferer of undiagnosed food allergies, Mary took her health into her own hands and discovered after much experimentation that a Paleo-centric diet was the key to solving nearly all of her issues.
Her focus on eating clean has found a worldwide audience in those few short years and led to the creation of a fine-dining menu consultancy and a performance food line called Phat Fudge that sells out as fast as she can make it.
Mary consults with various organizations including Nike and is the chef behind the show Man Enough (www.wearemanenough.com). She has cooked for people like Adam Rodriguez, Brandon Routh, Courtney Ford, Justin Baldoni, Tim Ferriss, Chef Michael Mina (2 event collaborations, including 1,000 people at Niner Stadium). Her work has been featured in places such as Forbes, Entrepreneur Radio, Food & Wine, .Mic, Glamour, CBS News, and Women's Health. Her motto is simple: Eat Clean. Play Often. Crush Life.
