It all began with Founder and professional pastry chef Michelle Retik of Squirrel & The Bee in Short Hills, NJ when she started trying her hand baking with nut flours and local raw honey the year of 2012 after she experienced great success with medical treatment for her ulcerative
Colitis.

She swapped unhealthy foods for nutritious ones such as eliminating all grains, most dairy and refined sugars which she saw relief in her symptoms and because of that success she is now symptom free !

Not long after that word got around about her delectable baked goods which Michelle realized a desire for her pastries for people who were on and off diets.

It all began with Autumn and Chas Smith co-founders of Paleovalley when they met in 2007 and fell in love then married on the mystical Sunset Cliffs in San Diego, CA . Just this year they welcomed a bang boy Maverick!

Ever since Autumn was a teenager she suffered from acute digestive disorders many societies failed to provide her with solutions that worked leaving her worried Chas took over which research lead him to the Paleo diet.

For 30 days Chas and Autumn eliminated refined foods, ate organic fresh fruits and vegetables, grass fed meats and wild seafood and shopped at local farmers markets .

At the end of the 30 day trial Autumn's IBS had went away and was was so intrigued that she then quit her job as a personal trainer at the Tracy Anderson Method and earned a Master's degree in holistic nutrition.

Autumn and Chas came to the realization that there weren't many healthy foods on the market while they appeared to be such as using the words gluten free, soy free, dairy fr…

Surviving the Holidays Junk-Free with ZenSweet Company

Image
It all began with Michelle Francis and her beloved husband Corey Winer that shared a passion to provide the world with healthy foods.

Michelle and Corey changed their eating ways before ZenSweet was created when she was diagnosed with numerous food sensitivities like wheat, eggs, milk and sugar.

They weren't feeling as strong and healthy and changed their lifestyle which lead them to eliminating foods that were processed , refined and ones that could cause allergies and began searching for products to satisfy those needs.

When the markets failed to provide them with healthy snacks they created their very own recipes where they eliminated foods that caused inflammation or blood sugar spikes .

The snacks on the market didn't taste good and didn't meet their needs when coming to a low-glycemic and allergy free
Lifestyle .

It took them years to create the perfect sugar-free and allergy-free snacks  which they combined family recipes together when ZenSweet was born.

So Detach Coconut+ was born after trial and error over 3 years the formula came out electrifying and best of all Ellen liked it so much so that they shared their Ellie-Ade with everyone who was on the hunt for
More than just coconut water.

Eat IQbar

Image
It all began with Founder Will Nitze where he majored in Psychology and Neuroscience at Harvard and became then fascinated by how the human brain works.

 When he entered the work environment he discovered he was having difficulty with his own brain where brain fog and fatigue were a daily occurrence, for a quick fix he turned to caffeinated beverages and sugary snacks just to focus only making the problem worse to his growing list of cognitive issues.

On a quest to get to the root of the problem he tried and tested all sorts of ways from getting more exercise and sleep as well.

When amphetamines showed a desire to be dependent with negative side effects he then went grain-free and ate a high in fat healthy diet which was developed by Brain Nutrition expert Dr. David Perlmutter and Dr. Mark Hyman.

Not long after Will traded in his beloved diet of pasta and bread for healthy swaps such as nuts and avocados he reached new heights with his cognitive performance.

Celebrate this Holiday season with the all new Gingerbread RxBar !

Image
It all began in 2013 when founders of Rxbar called BS on those other protein bars looking for a more healthier bar that was made up of real ingredients which most of them lack and fell short in finding them so two best friends created their very own in the kitchen.
Take it from their ingredients 3 egg whites, 2 dates, and 6 almonds with no B.S.
It's how nutritious food should be made using little ingredients that are not only healthy but taste great as well.
RxBar knows good food it took them over 250 formulations to perfect their coconut chocolate bar (favorite of mine) and am so glad they did because it literally tastes like an almond joy only in protein bar form and made with dates to sweeten.
Rx Bar flavors include
Pumpkin SpiceChocolate Sea SaltPeanut Butter ChocolateApple CinnamonBlueberryMixed BerryCoffee Chocolate Maple Sea SaltChocolate ChipChocolate MintPeanut ButterRx Bars kid bars

When Jamie's friends had fallen ill to autoimmune diseases in their 20's it was then she knew her ways of eating had to change and she then realized that when avoiding those processed foods it had a huge impact on her husbands ankylosing spondylitis symptoms.

They then made lifestyle changes in ridding the family diet of processed foods and swapped them with whole, and cleaner easy to pronounce ingredients and when Jamie became a mom she was solely oriented toward healthier ways of living by providing her family with snacks that were  packed  with nutrients and also fun to eat.

During the summer months Jamie  spent her days in the garden where she created ways to add fruits and vegetables into meals and to enjoy them on the go  and that's how Watermelon Road fruit jerky began by not only fresh flavors but he…
