I'm Emma. I’m an entrepreneur. A health food lover. A girl mom. A do-gooder. A badass. But I was sick as heck until I took control of my own health.
10 years ago I returned from a summer internship in Ecuador with excruciating abdominal pain every time I ate. Doctors couldn't tell me what was wrong, but they put me on antibiotics anyway, which was a huge mistake. Two years later, when I was in my early 20s, I had my first colonoscopy... without anesthesia.
During the procedure,
I watched a live video of my intestines on the screen as a big nurse bear-hugged me. Amazed, I blurted out, "It's like a real-life episode of the Magic School Bus!" We all laughed.
My colon was inflamed and angry...
probably from decades of trauma, antibiotics, and junk food. Newly diagnosed with Crohn’s Colitis, I felt overwhelmed yet empowered. This was my wake up call. I knew it was time to heal. The first thing I did was to stop eating gluten. I started to feel better.
After my first daughter was born, I experienced the worst flare-up of my life.
There was nothing I could stomach. I went weeks without eating and I camped out in the bathroom. I almost ended up in the ER. I lost weight. I lost hope.
After my second colonoscopy, a gastroenterologist told me that what I eat has nothing to do with my condition. He called me foolish. Instead of addressing the root of the illness, he pushed drugs with side effects like cancer. Um... no, thank you.
Fueled to heal, I eliminated all allergens from my diet and I slowly started to recover. But I had a hard time finding an easy, satisfying breakfast and I missed bread. I felt depressed. When I was at my lowest low, I did what my Puerto Rican grandmother would do...
My beloved husband, a gifted culinary artist who was... ehem...Gwyneth Paltrow's former private chef, was excited to help me create meals with the few ingredients I could tolerate. We tested recipes until we created a plantain waffle that’s incredibly bread-like and digestible.
I put myself in remission and found joy in healing. These waffles changed my life! I knew I had to share them with others. When I did, people fell in love, too! I started this business in 2016 to feed people love through food, and became the first producer of plantain waffles and plantain flour baking mix in the world.
Plantain flour is the main ingredient. We source it from a small family farm in the highlands of Puerto Rico, where the plantains are sustainably-grown and naturally organic. The other whole food ingredients, coconut flour, arrowroot, flax, baking soda, and Himalayan salt, are certified organic.
Our mixes are always sugar-free, grain-free, dairy-free, soy-free, and nut-free. You can make pancakes, waffles, flatbreads, cookies, muffins, and more. Because of their healthy ingredients and versatility, our baking mixes are a great alternative for gluten-free baking.
Our mixes are tasty, fun, and easy to use. To make regular waffles or pancakes, just add water, eggs, and oil. If you're vegan, just add water, nut or seed butter, and oil. It'll take you less than 10 minutes to make a homemade breakfast your whole family will love.
We thought so. Our customers do, too. Everyone surveyed gives our products and services a 5-star rating.
We specialize in producing gluten-free mixes that are satisfying for people with food allergies and autoimmune issues.
