For most of my teenage and adult life, I struggled with the meaning of eating healthy. I spent years trying to figure out what the right ‘diet’ was for me. Obsessively counting calories, avoiding all carbs, juice cleansing… I tried just about everything, and nothing ever felt good or sustainable.
In 2016, I tried eating ‘clean’ for the first time – eating whole, real foods as close to their natural state as possible. Instead of avoiding calories, fat, and carbs, I started avoiding chemicals, preservatives, and refined sugar. This was life changing for me. I had more energy than ever; I slept better; my asthma (something I struggled with since childhood) went away. Overall, I felt better than ever.
After I started eating clean, I quickly realized that finding on-the-go snacks to fit my new lifestyle was a challenge, as most packaged foods on the market are loaded with chemicals, preservatives, and refined or added sugar. So… I decided to make my own! And with that, Sun & Swell Foods was born.
My husband, Bryan, and I started Sun & Swell Foods with a mission of making healthy snacking more accessible. We belive that knowing what you are putting in your body shouldn’t be a mystery and that ingredients should be easy to understand. We hope you enjoy our simple snacks!
