My dear readers, I really appreciate all the messages to tell me the ways that the information on this site has helped you. Whether you successfully got (and stayed!) pregnant or were able to connect some far away medical dots, you learned how MTHFR mutations affect so many parts of our bodies and minds. I hope many more of you have benefited from the information. I’m so happy that I decided to share the details of my journey with you all.
I haven’t written in awhile for a few reasons. First, I got very busy with life raising a toddler. This site requires a lot of time and maintenance even when I’m not writing new posts, and as those of you with small children know, time just slips away during parenthood. I also felt like I didn’t have too much new information to add. We are still accepting guest posts from others who would like to share with this growing group of readers.
When I started this site I was committed to raising awareness and making positive change for others and our environments. Which leads me to a third reason that I’ve been quiet. In 2015 I launched a specialty food company, which has been growing steadily. When I changed my diet I found that whole foods were in abundance, but suitable snack foods were very difficult to find. There were very few options to grab “on the go” and the energy bars out there were either full of junk, not filling or didn’t taste that great.
So I’m excited today to introduce you to my creation, B.O.S.S. Bars™. These raw superfood bars are filled with ingredients that are not only delicious, but also beneficial. They contain no gluten, no dairy, no soy, no synthetic vitamins, no unhealthy sweeteners, no protein powders, no preservatives, no artificial flavors or colors…nothing but eight simple whole superfood ingredients per bar. Our many repeat customers tell us that they are delicious, filling and hunger satisfying (the bars are low glycemic, containing only Paleo approved sweeteners and the natural sugars from our unsweetened fruits). B.O.S.S. Bars are certified gluten-free (by the strictest standard, Celiac Support Association, which is <5ppm), and certified Paleo by The Paleo Foundation.
Each one has been formulated not only for flavor but also because of the benefits of the complementary ingredients. They are unique and are forging a whole new category of food bars. I use them mainly when I am on the go, especially for breakfast or lunch, and when I just need to recharge.
Our first five bars are:
MOVE® – Containing aronia berries, which have been studied for post-workout inflammation, Macadamia nuts (good ratio of Omega-3 to Omega-6 fatty acids) and hemp seeds (also anti-inflammatory), this is excellent for post-workout or just a good everyday energy bar.
THINK® – With all the traditional brain-boosting superfoods, this has become my go-to breakfast bar.
SMILE® – Full of tryptophan containing ingredients (tryptophan converts to serotonin), this bar also has delicious raw cacao powder. Just do a quick search on raw cacao to learn about the goodness.
DAZZLE™ – This is the first ever bar with noni fruit powder, and also the first bar designed for hair, skin and nails. Known as the “queen of the health plants,” noni has 17 of the 20 amino acids. Brazil nuts also provide selenium in this one.
RESTORE® – Maqui berries are Patagonian superberries with tons of benefits. RESTORE has ingredients known to help with detox and immune support like Brazil nuts, raw honey, pumpkin seeds, and sunflower seeds.
Our bars have fully compostable wrappers so you can feel good about the environment too. As I remain committed to causes that work to remove harmful substances from our world, we have pledged to donate 1% of profits to organizations involved in these endeavors. I promise to keep you posted on the good work we do with this company. There is much more information about our standards and commitments on our website.

I’d love your feedback on my concept! It’s been a very long road building this company and we are still in the early stages. I’m always grateful for everyone’s support here – thank you always.
