THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU to everyone who showed up on Saturday! Here are pictures I took from the party!
I'll be sending out emails and posting on my blog flavors of the week and other announcements. Please look out for them! The soup of the week (or for the next two weeks) is CROWN CREAMY VEGETABLE! The ingredients I used to make this soup are cabbage, broccoli, coconut milk and miso. Here is a picture below of my soup!
My daughters and I have been creating gluten free and dairy free foods for about 8 years. I had digestive problems all my life. My middle daughter, Erica, had stomach problems since she was little. The doctors did not know why.
Erica and I started our healthy journey when we both went to school together at Institute for Integrative Nutrition. Two years later, Erica became very sick with Lyme disease. We went to Dr. Jonathan Dashiff, a doctor who specializes in Integrative Medicine, who was so caring and knew how to treat the cause of Lyme with many different approaches. He also said it was very important to follow a very strict gluten free diet, which means cutting out wheat, rye and barley. So long spaghetti and pizza :(
Dr. Dashiff also said I should get a blood test to test for celiac since Erica had to get it from a gene that a may have. So the blood test came out positive. It turns out that Erica had celiac too, but found out later in life.
We take family recipes and convert them to gluten and dairy free by adding or substituting ingredients. They are so much healthier and better for you than store bought food! Our first recipes that we made were Blueberry Green Tea Muffins, biscottis and macaroons. Then we started changing our whole diets to gluten free and felt ten times better! I never thought my friends and family would like my recipes so much, but to my surprise, I created a small business out of it. People always come to me on a daily basis telling me that my advise of substituting dairy or gluten with other ingredients really helped them in their day to day living.
Even though it was a rough time long ago when Erica was sick, I see it as a blessing in disguise because we would have never went to Dr. Dashiff, would have never found out our allergies, and would not have changed our diets for the better. I also would have not created my business or gone to Integrative Nutrition, and most importantly, would not be able to counsel people on living healthier lives.
I am so excited about hosting the Zen Sweetz Grand Opening Party on September 24th! My goal is to provide homemade, organic soups and sweets. I created my delicious recipes for my cooking classes that I have been doing for the past 10 years. I also have previously catered yoga retreats, and through popular demand, started selling soups and gluten free vegan muffins.
My purpose of creating Zen Sweetz foods is to introduce healthy, no-guilt delicious recipes! My food will add in nutrition with vitamins and minerals, and will be very satisfying!
Are you willing to take on the challenge of Zen Sweetz? It will change your life to turn out the best you can be!
Please RSVP to my Grand Opening Party via Facebook on September 24th from 3:00-5:00PM at my house, 59 Dartmouth Street in Rockville Centre, NY, and please bring a friend! I will announce soup choices of the week and will be selling soup and sweets every other week by special order. You can either pick them up at my house on Thursday or Saturday nights, or if it is a bigger order I can make arrangements for delivery. Whatever works best for you!
Hi everyone! OK so I have been receiving some questions about the services I provide for Zen Sweetz and I wanted to clear up some confusion.
