Raising four hungry boys to become healthy, strapping young men, meant as their mother, I spent plenty of time in the kitchen. I learned that most extracted starches (commonly found in gluten free and grain free foods) raise blood-sugar and promote weight gain... and that grains can often be contaminated and problematic for many people. So, I chose more nutrient dense and higher quality 'real foods' as staples in my kitchen.
When my hubby, Tom (known in these parts as Animal;) became involved, he encouraged me to share my delicious discoveries with others. That's when our REAL BREADS & BAKING MIXES came to be. Our 'real food' products are made without grains, soy, added sugar, dairy, or any added starches. Instead we use simple, clean, non-GMO and organic ingredients for a happier, healthier YOU!
Just about 20 years ago, we moved our family of four young men from the city to the southern California countryside. Here, amongst the population of coyotes, roadrunners, rattlesnakes, tarantulas and jackalopes we built our farmhouse and began baking Real Bread! It's been a wild ride and we've loved every minute of it, well...almost every minute;)
Along the way we learned a few things... like how to build our little farmhouse and lots of 'out buildings' using our own resources (mostly a few teenage muscles). We learned all about home schooling and independent studies.
We put up a five acre fence line (on very rocky terrain), acquired an entire pack of dogs, and learned about raising chickens, goats and a piggy...and NO, he won't become bacon!
We learned about planting and caring for fruit trees and vegetable gardens and irrigation. We've learned about water wells, septic systems (the place where the poop goes!) and solar energy.
We've even learned how to drive a tractor, shoot a rifle and skin a rattlesnake (won't be doin' that again). So, it's truly
been an interesting couple of decades!
Over the years I've gained a few wrinkles and couldn't seem to decide on my best hair color, but I always loved eating and baking with, what I call, a little healthy 'California twist'. So, it was super exciting when my newest cookbook, The Ultimate Grain-Free Cookbook was published! Eating this way has greatly enhanced my health, as I've been managing what doctors call 'auto-immune' symptoms for years.
Now, our Real Breads are baked for the food service industry (restaurants, hospitals, etc.) and you can find our Baking Mixes for sale on amazon, across the USA, in Canada online at www.naturamarket.ca, and now in Central America!
We are working hard to 'scale' our business in hopes you'll find us in your local markets soon. You can help us make that happen by taking This Form to your local store manager.
We SO appreciate your support, and many blessings to you and yours!
