Founding Story

eat G.A.N.G.S.T.E.R. is founded on the need for delicious, easy-to-make foods for those on healing diets.  

What is a healing diet and why in the world would people restrict what they eat so much?  Well, whether due to food allergies or due to autoimmune challenges, many people have to choose a different way of eating from the Standard American Diet.  The AIP diet in particular (as well as others like it such as the Wahls Protocol), take out foods that are known to be inflammatory -  and this means everything from grains & dairy to nuts & legumes to refined sugars & soy products.  Removing these inflammatory foods has shown in many to reduce (and sometimes erase) the symptoms of autoimmune diseases such as Hashimotos, MS, rheumatoid arthritis and mental illnesses such as anxiety and depression.  Eating a restrictive diet can feel, well, restrictive.  But while restrictive, people can now have hope to live stronger, healthier, symptom-free lives.

With Co-Founder, Heather being a recipe developer, Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and AIP coach and Co-Founder, Kerry being an active AIP consumer due to numerous autoimmune challenges, the women founders teamed up... in the kitchen.  Iteration after iteration of recipes, finally yeilded their first baking mixes that could be taken to market.  And they launched, January 15, 2020 with cookie mixes.

Heather is a Nutritional Therapy Practioner, recipe developer and chef who has worked in the health and wellness industry since 2011. After getting a Psoriatic Arthritis diagnosis in 2005, Heather became determined to avoid pharmaceutical therapies and looked to holistic alternatives to heal her body and reverse her symptoms.  Diet therapy has been significant in sending her autoimmune disease into remission.

Heather’s passion for helping people on restricted diets began when she started a small café in Wichita, KS.  She developed a menu that catered to everyone and dazzled patrons who found it difficult to dine out on restricted diets.  Heather enjoys creating G.A.N.G.S.T.E.R. recipes for those who are following an AIP diet or those who want to eat wholesome, gut-friendly, delicious food.  You don’t have to tough it out— eat G.A.N.G.S.T.E.R.

Kerry has been in the field of consumer branding for 20 years. Most recently she owned and operated New York City’s most luxurious hotel for dogs. She also worked for eight years with athletic apparel powerhouse lululemon athletica, ultimately overseeing the company’s U.S. Community Marketing during a period of tremendous growth.

Kerry is a Type 1 diabetic, and is thus dependent upon insulin to survive. She has done the strict Auto-Immune Protocol (AIP) diet for months at a time, and eats AIP 90% of her regular diet. She also recently underwent surgery for a partial thyroidectomy. Her body feels healthier, younger and requires 60% less insulin when on full AIP. She loves creating amazing foods that are G.A.N.G.S.T.E.R. (which is everything AIP is!) – so as to inspire others to actually ENJOY the process of healing themselves.
