Our Journey

Jeremiah 29:11

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

Since I was a young adult, I had this dream of becoming a nutritionist one day. I had a specific interest in reading up on the latest nutritional information and healthy ways of living. I surely had the best plans on hand for anyone with a weight or health issue. I never anticipated how my life would change from a high school teacher to a mom who had to put her craving for dietary info into action…

With having kids, came a whole new world of discoveries. My family of 4 was forced by nature to make a radical change in the way we were eating and thinking about food.

We came to learn that if the food you are consuming is not absorbed properly, very little or almost no nutrients are available to feed your brain. This gut issue may cause many developmental delays in children.

We had to change our everyday diet into food that can heal the body and help develop the brain, which has the amazing ability to change itself.

Michael Merzenich, a well-known neuroscientist, claims that we can also change the very structure of the brain itself and increase the capacity to learn. Unlike a computer, the brain is constantly adapting itself. It doesn’t simply learn: it is always “learning how to learn.” He said it is not an inanimate vessel we fill: rather it is more like a living creature with an appetite, one that can grow and change itself with proper nourishment and exercise.

With this in mind, the aim is to eliminate empty calorie food stuff and replacing it with gut-healing foods that nourish. We try to avoid foods containing sugar, refined carbohydrates, colourants and preservatives as far as possible, because they are unfamiliar to the body and not seen as food. They may be termed “empty calories”, which can cause cravings for sweet and salt tastes. After eating these empty calories you will find that you stay hungry, because the body isn’t nourished with nutrients. What is even worse is that refined sugar and carbs may cause inflammation, obesity and ADHD, and the consumption of colourants and preservatives can result in allergies and hyperactivity.

It was extremely difficult for me to make the mind shift, just the thought of it made me want to quit before I even started. But the results are priceless.

There is this saying:

Your mind will always believe everything you tell it. Feed it hope. Feed it truth. Feed it love.

I also believe: Feed it real food.

This All Natural Convenience food range, handmade and homemade by us, is exactly that.

Embrace your uniqueness, because the world needs all kinds of minds.
