We've all heard it before. Health is directly related to diet. We are what we eat.
I thought it was a cute saying, but never fully bought into it. But then, the perfect storm of life events forced me to test that theory head on.
First, I became a mom and was always wondering if diet really was as important as some said. I mean, could it really be that big of a deal? Preservatives were in most of what we were eating at the time, but I just couldn't shake the feeling that there was something wrong about that.
And then out of nowhere I suddenly started having allergy symptoms. I almost got rid of our mattress and our dog, thinking they were the cause, until I realized it was actually food sensitivities. My body was finally fed up with all of the pretend food I was eating and was rebelling in full force.
At about that same time we almost lost someone we love to an autoimmune disease and that led us to more information on how good nutrition can heal us from the inside out.
I finally started paying attention and committed to finding better ways to nourish my family and myself.
My first creation was kale chips. I'll keep this short. They didn't go over well.
Then I came across an article about coconut butter and realized this was a spread my kids (well, all of us really) could get into. I knew my kids wouldn't eat it plain, so I added some flavors and then we had a new problem. Prying the jars out of their little hands. They were pretty much instantly addicted!
It's been a joy to share this amazing superfood spread with others and know that it's helping to make families healthier.
We hope you love Binnie Butter as much as we do! Thank you for your support!
