Episode Info: My guest today is Bobby Chang, one half of the couple that owns a Paleo cafe called Mission: Heirloom in Berkeley, California. Bobby and his wife Yrmis had traveled for an entire year, crossing 26 countries to learn different culture and cuisines, as well as come up with a bunch of different business ideas to serve the paleo community. When they came back to the US, they settled in Berkeley and opened up a restaurant that Chris Kresser sends his patients to.   Here's Bobby in his own words: Our quick summary starts with us trying Paleo in 2011, after exhausting every possible diets out there, Paleo was the one that the 3 of us (Yrmis: wife, Moya: 16 year old daughter) and I found the most success. We were our own small test and support group. at that time, we were taking a sabbatical to figure out what we were going to do next in our career. Traveling through 26 countries while on Paleo allowed us to understand we need to do something with a purpose drive mission in the food/ health industry since there was not many options out there to eat this way. We learned tons while traveling: how to breakdown a country, markets, restaurants and stay compliant and enjoy the local food.    Half way through our travels we mapped out 8 different businesses and then figured out providing a basic clean meal was the thing that was missing, This really addressed our own need. Once we returned the plan was ready to be implemented, so we scouted out possible location, looking from New York to Austin to Portland, finally settling in Berkeley. We went deep into hacking our own health and surrounded ourselves with specialist that accelerated our learning. We discovered we each had different underlining issue and that's why going on a grain free diet made us feel so much better. Moya had the early signs of Hashimoto's, Yrmis had Addison and I had celiac. Finding this out early enough allowed us to actively reverse these conditions and change our life's trajectory. We have since been able to benchmark our data and see the continual improvement at the same time shocking the medical professionals that once wanted to put us on medication.    After we opened Mission: Heirloom in 2014, we discovered we were not along on this journey. People with autoimmune condition started requesting more AIP (autoimmune protocol or anti-inflammatory protocol, the origins of AIP)
