Mindful Monk

About Us

How it All Began

During my pregnancies, I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes, requiring me to rely on insulin and adhere to a restricted diet with my firstborn. This experience fueled my fascination with the profound impact of food on one's health. I read countless books, listened to hundreds of podcasts and even reached out to experts to gain as much knowledge as possible. With my second child, I became determined to manage my recurring diabetes through mindful eating, using the power of food as a tool for self-healing. And it worked!

However, my path took an unexpected turn shortly after the birth of my second daughter when I encountered a near-death experience due to severe hemorrhaging. Awakened to a new purpose in life, I recognized that my survival held a profound significance—to help and serve others. Drawing from my journey, I decided to share a snack I had created to satisfy my sweet tooth during my battle with diabetes. I believe if it helped me, it could help others too.

Every day, 640 Canadians are diagnosed with diabetes, equating to one person every three minutes. This serves as a powerful reminder of the urgency to make a difference in our lives. I am driven to share my experiences with others that we can embrace food that is both functional and delicious.

Through my work, I aim to spread awareness and provide a solution for those seeking a mindful approach to their snacking habits. By creating snacks that not only satisfy cravings but also support their health and well-being, I hope to empower individuals to make positive choices for themselves.
