I remember my grandmother had a huge vegetable garden with 10-12 rows of fresh veggies; snap beans, corn, tomatoes... Keeping the ground hogs and snails out was a top priority. She would pick what we needed for supper just a few minutes before the meal. The taste of garden fresh produce never left my mind. Today, not many of us have time to wait 42 days for spinach to grow (or deal with ground hogs). We believe that food needs to go back to it's roots. Back to grandma's time, to the basics of eating fresh, whole, real food. We believe in keeping food simple, free of today's inventions like food coloring, shelf extenders, fillers, & preservatives. Our wraps are made from farm fresh produce, in small batches, by hand. Grandma would be proud.
I quit my highly stressful job, as a nurse practitioner. I was fed up with mainstream medicine pill pushing and no longer wanted to be a part of it. I tried to figure out what my purpose was in this life. At my core, I am a healer. I wanted to heal people, to help others. How could I still do that? Eventually, I learned about functional & holistic medicine and started a practice treating food allergies, leaky gut, SIBO and things mainstream medicine does not recognize- things I was afflicted with. I also had debilitating food sensitivities. Only able to eat 20 foods at one point. I really missed having a sandwich and lettuce leaves were not cutting it. Over the next year I developed Raw Wraps. It could not contain gluten, soy, corn, wheat, dairy, all things I was allergic to. I wanted to make a functional food that actually did something good for my body. I saw the same need in my clinic patients, and offered up my wraps. The response was overwhelming, I started getting calls not for an appointment with me, but to get wraps! I realized I could help more people with the wraps than I ever could in my practice. Back to my purpose in life- to be a healer, to help people. I made the really hard decision to quit my practice and go into the food business--with ZERO experience! It was the best decision I ever made because now I am fulfilling my purpose & doing something good. As corny as it sounds I am sharing part of myself, sending my love & healing vibes to everyone who eats my wraps.
