Well, one thing is for sure. I’d be lying to you if I said it hasn’t been a long road these past couple of weeks as I’ve pursued this reality of ours.
A long road of email trails and corrected processing plans. A long road of oversized labels and mix-matched ingredients. A long road of late night packing and heat seals. A long road of bank statements and excel spread sheets. A long road of commercial kitchens, health inspectors, FDA approvals…..
It’s funny how one can dream themselves into a very challenging place. With momentum comes risk. Unchartered territory. An immediate and lingering question of ones capabilities and mental resolve. Reality.
That is why I am writing this post today without any pictures or recipes. No promotion, just words. I want those of you who are still reading this post to know that Naturbaker couldn’t have come to this point without YOU.
Yes, YOU have been driving its momentum from its very first steps.
If you are a young child, who is restless tonight because of the unending itch that will not relent from a food allergy, I want you to know, I am NOT GIVING UP. We will find a way to make all sorts of yummy treats for you that will help heal your skin and calm those allergies.
If you are an older woman who feels like she can’t eat anything, ANYWHERE for fear of what havoc her stomach may wreak on her, I want you to know, I am NOT GIVING UP. We will find taste again, and find it in a safe way.
If you are a voracious athlete who is addicted to moving and is tired of eating goos and gels that get OLD fast, I want you to know, I am NOT GIVING UP. There are five million nutritious AND sustaining ways I’m going to explore to create the energy you need, and fast.
If you are an individual who is still reading this post and a part of the Naturbaker family, I want you to know that I am NOT GIVING UP. Though the road has been long, you have been with Naturbaker though it all and I am BEYOND excited to face this reality with you.
So, let’s get started! For real this time. I hope that you will find Naturbaker’s more current presence as a source of comfort and know that I will be doing my part to educate and empower the Naturbaker family. In turn, I hope that this will encourage you to do the same. Whether it is a question or contribution about nutrition, recipes, allergies, or how to encourage positive food choices, I hope that you will feel the strength to reach out.
Yes, there are so many obstacles in this reality of ours, but sharing the gift of GOOD food?
Well….. let’s make sure that’s not one of them.
