For most of my adult life, I suffered from all sorts of digestive problems, including bloating, heartburn and stomach cramps. In 2015, I was diagnosed with a long list of foods I am intolerant to, including wheat, dairy and sugar. Removing these things from my diet proved to be even harder after I made a visit to the local supermarket and strolled through their 'gluten-free, dairy-free and organic' aisle, only to find that products were full of refined sugar, artificial preservatives and additives.
While scrolling through Facebook, I came across a recipe for coconut, date and almond balls made with all-natural ingredients. I made them and it was love at first bite. I experimented with different flavours and shared the results with family, friends and colleagues. None of them believed that they were all-natural and healthy.
One of my fears was baking without butter and flour. However, the more I experimented with different ingredients and free-from recipes, I was amazed that for every naughty food craving, there is a natural, good-for-you answer. This was the journey that inspired me to create The Snack Society in 2016.
