I had recently obtained a master’s degree in Hospitality Management at the University of South Florida. While I was living in a small studio apartment over a garage in Sarasota, Florida, I started experimenting with making raw, nutritious treats. I had a yearning desire to create and consume healthy food. My passion for simple, clean ingredients such as raw nuts, seeds, Medjool dates, and natural sweeteners contributed to the organic evolution of making healthy treats for my friends and family. With limited cooking space, a second-hand food processor, and an entrepreneurial spirit the evolution of Nutty Girl began!
In my adolescent years, I struggled with maintaining a healthy weight. As I got older, I became more conscious of how processed ingredients such as refined sugars and wheat were affecting me emotionally, physically, and spiritually. In a sense, you could say, they were making me nutty! For years, I woke up groggy with low energy. I struggled to lose weight. Through a combination of exercise, mindful eating, and fulfilling my sweet cravings with Nutty Girl treats I finally started my journey into health and wellness!
In the evolution of developing Nutty Girl products I also wanted find out how I could help young girls develop healthy self esteems, encourage them in their schooling and offer friendship. Nutty Girl now proudly supports an organization called, She's the First, which is a "movement who's vision is to help fight gender inequality through education."
Nutty Girl. Real. Crazy. Good.
