Listen to episode 86:
"Now I enjoy cooking with real, whole foods": Annie

September 4, 2022

Annie chose to be vegetarian early on in her life, but unfortunately she ate a lot of processed grains rather than fruit and vegetables. She admits that she didn't really know what to focus on at that time.

"My body never felt great and my mind never really felt great", Annie told me.

It took several years of figuring out which way of eating worked for her. She tried several diets, including the keto diet which is heavy on fats and meat, with very little sugar.

Living in Wisconsin, Annie gradually became involved in local food systems, farming, and gardening. Her focus shifted to foods that could be grown and sourced locally, which naturally led to a more plant-based diet (although it still includes some meat).

Annie's learning about what makes her body feel good - and whole foods are a big part of that. And during the pandemic, like many people, Annie found that cooking at home became a bigger part of her life. But a lot of online recipes are buried in pop-ups and ads and long text, which made it frustrating to use them.

So Annie created, which is the first ad-free subscription-based recipe platform that is equitable to small creators. Bloggers and recipe developers submit their content to the platform, and get paid on a per-view basis of their recipe. Users can access unlimited recipes with zero distractions, ads, or popups on a subscription basis.

Listen to Annie's inspiring story of cutting sugar naturally through adopting a whole foods diet, and how you can use to get all the recipes you need!
