I am a former corporate lawyer, turned stay-at-home mom, turned small-business woman. My love for baking started when I was a little girl learning my grandmother rose’s recipes. Many of my best memories are tied to times we spent baking together. As I grew, so did my passion for baking...especially brownies!
When I learned that the chronic headaches, digestive ailments, and cold symptoms I was experiencing were actually caused by intolerance to wheat, gluten & yeast, I was stunned. Between my baking and general love of bread, bagels, and generally all things wheat, things looked pretty grim.
What’s more, I later learned that the years of infertility I was suffering through could also be related to an immune response to wheat and gluten.* So, saddled with health issues and frustrated with the cardboard-like, gluten-free options, I set out to create good tasting alternatives that anyone could enjoy. When I surpassed even my own expectations, I knew I had to share my creations with others and freedgoods was born.
The freedgoods story doesn’t end there, however, because my other passion in life has been my mission to raise awareness and provide support for women and couples coping with infertility. After being blessed with children of my own with the help of fertility treatments - but with little other support, I dedicated myself to providing infertility counseling, education and bringing light to a matter of secret suffering for so many.
freedgoods, thus, is a culmination of my life-long love of baking and my continuing effort to do whatever I can for people struggling with infertility. For this reason, 5% of freedgoods profits go to support infertility education, research and treatment. By enjoying these products you too will be able to contribute to this worthy cause. Now that's guilt-free indulgence!
