I get so excited when I hear about companies that are founded by passionate people with a desire to create products that not only taste incredible, but are helping to build health in our bodies. While at the Natural Products Expo East in September 2013, I had the pleasure of meeting Sequoia Cheney, CEO and Macaroon Maven, of Wonderfully Raw Coco-Roons. This women is amazing! She has given so much of herself to others through the arts and through holistic healing. Always passionate about food (and maybe not always the healthiest food), Sequoia found herself in a health crisis when she was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. She knew she had to make some serious changes to heal herself.
Her son Eric Hara, a renowned chef in NY, encouraged Sequoia to be creative in her quest to create delicious, but healthy foods. Sequoia then trained at Living Light Culinary Institute in CA with the best raw food chefs in the business. With a solid understanding of raw food preparation and the knowledge of how food can heal our bodies, she began teaching raw food classes and creating healing foods like Coco-Roons. Sequoia is proud to say that today her blood sugar is normal, and she no longer take diabetes medication!!!
This is the kind of product and company that I want to support and to tell you about! I love Sequoia’s Coco-Roons. They’re organic, Non-GMO and only contain the best raw ingredients like dried coconut, raw almond flour, raw cacao nibs, unfiltered maple syrup, coconut oil, vanilla extract, and Himalayan crystal salt just to name a few ingredients. Coco-Roons come in the these flavors:
