Hi, I’m Lea! I am a Diagnostic Medical Sonographer, Board Certified in OB/GYN and Vascular with a minor in nutrition. As a health and fitness enthusiast, I believe in balance and not depriving yourself of delicious food while dieting.
I started making my own nut butters when I developed a bunch of food intolerances and couldn’t have junk food anymore. I figured out how to make my nut butters taste like dessert, but still, be healthy! I kept it to myself for years, until my husband finally convinced me to take it to a bodybuilding competition about 1.5 years ago. It was a big hit and we grew from there.
We are a small, family-run business that hand whips all of the butters until they have the signature drippy texture we are known for.
What is most important to me is that I source every ingredient (I even purchase the nuts directly from the farm) and ensure that each ingredient is grown or manufactured in the USA. We also donate 10% of all proceeds to sending care packages to the troops overseas.
I love running our family business. Our 4 little kids help us with what they can, and if you get a package with a sticker, that means Tootie helped pack it!
