In 2012, our oldest daughter (who was 10 at the time) was diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease. After 2 years of being on immune suppressing medication and months of high dose steroids, we were seeing no improvement to her health. In 2014, her pediatric gastroenterologist started talking about putting her on a new medication and possibly doing surgery. As her parents, we were not comfortable with either of these options. We started researching alternatives to medication and learned of a certain diet for people like our daughter.
After one year of our daughter being on this diet, we took her in for her annual checkup with her pediatric gastroenterologist. A series of blood tests is always mandatory after her appointments and when we received her test results, we were very happy! They were the best results (meaning all of her tests were within "normal" range) we have had since before her diagnosis. At that moment, we knew that this diet was a forever diet for her.
Making her foods required a lot of time and energy. It was preventing me from spending quality time with my family while working full time. So, in 2015, I quit my corporate job to stay home with our son. This also allowed me the time necessary to prepare all the foods she enjoyed and to try new recipes for her!
A few months into my new life as a stay-at-home mom, I thought about the struggles I went through while working full time. It was impossible to find ready-made, natural baked goods for her to enjoy. My family encouraged me to start my own business so that other families can have yummy foods to help support their diets. All of my foods are Gluten-Free, Soy-Free, Grain-Free and Paleo Friendly. Two of my cookies are also Vegan Friendly!
Our philosophy is to help people maintain their diets and to save them time by making and selling baked goods with only natural ingredients. This allows them more time to do what they love and keep being healthy.
