Founder of Osso Bueno
I was sick for many years before I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease in 2002. It had ravaged my skin, my body and my mind – I was covered in dermatitis herpetiformis and in a deep depression. I was very lucky to have sought council from a Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioner who guided me back though years of healing.
I had to learn how to cook and feed myself way better than I had be doing and I needed to rethink everything after years of putting everything between two slices of bread or raw out of a bowl. I began to remember all the beautiful food and abundance we had on the farm and I remember my mom’s refrigerator soup. Every week, mom would clean out the fridge and everything would go into the soup. Soup became a staple again in my life and my friends seemed to admire it as well. I began to really enjoy cooking and started to get very creative in the kitchen. Remember at this time there was not a lot of awareness, so going out for dinner was not an option – or even to someone’s home for fear of cross contamination.
I had been formulating a business plan for a soup company and in 2014, while the oil and gas industry was bombing out, the idea of a soup company seemed to be my next logical step in my life. Working for myself seemed an excellent rebound from oil and gas and I really loved to nourish people. In November of 2014, I was reminded about bone broth. My newsfeed became filled with bone broth take-out windows in New York. In an instant I knew that this is what I needed to do. I wanted to provide a nourishing foundation to allow people to have optimum health even if they have a very busy life. So I tweaked my mom’s refrigerator soup and created a foundational bone broth.
I have to say, this decision was the best I have ever made. Not only was I creating something that could nourish the world; I was creating a nourishing drink for myself. Bone broth has taken my health to a whole new level of healing. It has given me energy, reduced my hot flashes, healed my knees, cleared my mind and given me so much joy and a lot to be very, very grateful for. I have seen my clients, grow hair, regain their appetite, heal aches and pains and regain their mental health.
It has been an exciting journey and I know you also have a story to tell. Why don’t you drop me a line and let me know how you feel and what you want to accomplish, or what you have already accomplished on your healing journey.
All my love xoxox
Now - come enjoy my beautiful bone broth on your beautiful healing journey.
“Feeding people nourishing delicious food is my first priority. I wanted to make a simple food foundation that was nutrient dense and delicious so that it can be used for a variety of things. I love feeding people and this is a perfect path for me.”
