Where It All Began
Raised on 140 wooded acres in the middle-of-nowhere Pennsylvania
made for some pretty out-of-the-box thinking.
Danielle and her sister grew up riding horses, climbing trees and chasing big dreams.
Like running away to the redwoods in California (which they did 20 years later!).
With a father who was part pioneer + part cowboy and a fun-loving mom, bare feet and big dreams were not only accepted they were expected. And so was hard work. A lot of hard work. Danielle’s parents built their house themselves…at 24 years old!
So work was never a question. Neither was food. Not always the healthiest choices, but a love of food nonetheless.
Danielle loved to cook from a young age and was always creating and making a mess in the kitchen.
Fast Forward 30 Years.
Danielle was still creating and making a mess of the kitchen… this time in her home in sunny San Diego, California, for her 2 boys she and her husband adopted from the Ukraine.
Now health conscious and a self-proclaimed foodie, Danielle was creating for a purpose – to super boost these small bodies which were severely nutrient deficient.
The only hitch – they were incredibly picky little boys!
Blend. Blend. Blend.
Danielle remembered her childhood favorite back on those 140 Pennsylvania acres – peanut butter! Big spoonfuls right out of the jar!
Why not blend a bunch of nutritiously dense nuts and seeds together to maximize the vitamins, minerals and proteins these little bodies needed!
So in her food processor she blended and mixed and experimented ad nauseam until a perfect nutritious mix was found.
Her husband, who always did the dishes (bless his heart), begged her to ‘just buy this stuff for Christ’s sake’. (Apparently cleaning nut butter from a food processor is a tad challenging…)
No one even came close to making a blended, nutritious nut butter.
Danielle took the leap and launched the original nut butter that blends seven nuts and seeds.
