It all started back in 2011. Cecilie dreamed of making a difference by inspiring people to lead healthier and happier lives. The seed started to sprout as an online movement while Cecilie was doing a lot of volunteering in the field. After several years of inspiring others and a sea of healthy recipes, Morten and Cecilie created the brand together and launched their first cookbook. From there, our story is very eventful, long, and exciting. You can get an overview of our journeys as well as more juicy details here.

It’s been a long journey but our foundation and vision are still the same: To contribute positively to your health and quality of life and to inspire you to lead a happier and healthier life.

We are passionate about inspiring others and making a difference, especially as a brand that produces food. We are detail-oriented and every single raw material that goes into our products is investigated and researched for health and quality. We develop and produce our food from scratch – everything from spice mixes, dressings, marinades, fish, chicken, etc. Our work is guided by our philosophy of holistic health and we develop our products with an emphasis on quality, sustainability, and a healthy macro-distribution that everyone can benefit from.

Our food and protein bars are 100% natural. Most protein bars contain many different sweeteners, flavors, and other artificial fillers. We want to develop products with short ingredient lists, consisting of natural and high-quality ingredients that energize, satiate, and leave your body feeling good.
