Nutritious You Production Process and Products Description

Nutritious You is a new product line of healthy snacks created by AADP certified health coach, Marina Sommers.  Marina’s original production goal was to fill a void in local food market offerings by creating a snack that was both healthy and tasty to her children.  Today, the mission of the Nutritious You team has evolved to provide nutrient-packed snacks to health-conscious consumers across the nation.

Nutritious You products list:

~ VeggiePulp crackers
~ SweetBeet crackers
~ Onion&Garlic crackers
~ CheezyKale chips
~ Rosemary Walnuts
~ Nutberry Mini Granola Bars
~ AlmondMaca Energy Balls
~ PeanutCacao Energy Balls
~ CacaoNib Macaroons
~ Fruit Leather Strips

Nutritious You products do not have: preservatives, artificial flavors, dyes, chemicalized ingredients, food-like products created in a lab, any kind of yucky stuff that our immune system doesn’t recognize!

Nutritious You Products have: high quality premium certified organic ingredients that come from the land, from our Earth. The only ingredient that is not certified organic is our fabulous Himalayan pink salt.

Production Process:
Nutritious You products are plant based. They are carefully handcrafted with love.  The production process combines high quality organic vegetables, seeds and nuts. We soak and grind most of our seeds and nuts for better digestibility (less anti-nutrients, more bio-availability). We use filtered, pH neutral-to-slightly alkaline water for soaking. The products are then dehydrated below 118 degrees Fahrenheit to preserve nature’s nutrients. It takes from 24 up to 48 hours for a cracker to turn into a crispy savory delight. The result is a high-fiber, nutrient-packed, raw and vegan product composed of 99% certified organic ingredients.

Yes, the process is lengthy but you are worth it! This is what makes our products so nutrient rich. As one of the well-known health experts, Dr. Joel Furhman puts it, “Eat foods that are rich in micronutrients!” Check out the first eight most nutrient-dense food groups here in his chart.

We love what we do. We create guilt-free yummy snacks and desserts for your pleasure and nourishment!

Today, Nutritious You products are well established in Sarasota, FL. Nutritious You is actively seeking retailers and distributors to expand to new markets.

What is a Healthy Diet?

What is a healthy diet? 

Is it Atkins? Is it Paleo? Is it vegetarian? Or is it a Gluten Free?

Dr. Joel Fuhrman is one of the most respected experts in the health and wellness industry and the author of bestselling books on nutrition. He suggests consuming food groups that are rich in micronutrients.  When the body receives plenty of micronutrients, it starts to clean itself of a variety of ailments while getting all of the ingredients necessary for healthy operation. Additionally, it’s a great way to prevent nutrient deficiencies.  Micronutrients are vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, phytonutrients, and enzymes.  When our diet is full of these, we don't have to worry about ailments. 

Macronutrients are also necessary for our survival. This includes proteins, fats, and carbs. You don’t have to worry about being deficient in macronutrients, per Dr. Furhman’s suggestion, as the foods that are rich in micronutrients already have an appropriate amount s of healthy fats, carbs, and proteins for us humans.

Here is a visual starting with the most nutrient-dense foods to the least:

Whatever diet you choose, stay away from refined sweets, even if the package says “All Natural” and “Gluten Free”!

The Story of Nutritious You™ Treats

Marina Sommers, holistic health and wellness coach hasn’t always been a healthy food junkie. It all started when she and her family moved to Siesta Key, Florida. The natural beauty of the island and the beach evoke her passion for nutrition and a healthier lifestyle.

At the same time her daughter developed an acute condition of Geographic Tongue. Certain foods made it very difficult for her to eat. Several months of trying to find a cure proved to be futile. Marina realized there had to be a drastic change for the better. She finally decided to move the whole family to a strict organic whole food based diet, without gluten, white sugar, white flour, preservatives, dyes, artificial flavors or any other laboratory made food-like products.

To Marina’s amazement, her daughter’s tongue was healed in two weeks! All the spots were gone. This is where the new journey began.

Marina started creating her own treats in alignment with her family’s new diet, at the same time still wanting her daughter to have the tasty treats that kids enjoy. This is how Nutritious You™ Treats came to life.

Marina’s ultimate goal is to bring her healthy treats to as many families as possible. Forget sacrificing taste for health. She is committed to providing natural, healthy and nutrient filled foods so there is NO GUILT, while indulging on favorite flavors or textures. Marina is dedicated to creating foods that are not just better for you, but good for you.

All our treats never go to high temperatures to preserve what’s nature has created.
