I created Remedi Foods after my long health journey, a passion for Ayurvedic nutrition, a focus on food as fuel, and a love for baking clean treats.
For nearly six years, during my mid-twenties, I was ignorant to the fact that I had a problem. As an endurance athlete, I became obsessed with exercising, training, and depriving myself of food. I constantly lived in a caloric deficit, not realizing how detrimental this is to health. It was not until I literally ran myself into a serious injury, breaking my tibia during the 2016 Boston Marathon, that I started to realize something was wrong. Years of deprivation and over exertion ultimately resulted in osteopenia at an abnormally young age, disrupted hormone production, dangerously low blood sugar, dramatic swings in cortisol levels, reduced thyroid function, fertility concerns, and debilitating gastrointestinal issues. I spent the next three years visiting specialized doctors and experimenting with every diet trend in hopes to finally feel healthy, free of restrictions, and regain my menstrual cycle after eight years with hypothalamic amenorrhea, yet nothing seemed to work.
Finding Ayurvedic nutrition and a functional medicine practitioner changed my life. I learned that we are all chemically different, with unique bio-energies, and therefore, what works for one, may not work for the other. I ditched the trends and focused on lifestyle changes to regain homeostasis within my mind, body, and soul. I learned that balance is critical, and restrictions and diets can lead to an unhealthy relationship with food, impacting all aspects of mental and physical health.
During my long and ongoing road to recovery, I found a love for creating healthy recipes, especially clean treats, the main joy for food that I had deprived myself of. I realized that it is possible to find balance by baking healthy desserts with functional ingredients. I started my food blog, @nourishedbypri, in 2018 to share my recipes and health journey. After two years of receiving positive feedback for my creative content but consistent responses that many felt intimidated seeking out and stocking their pantry with these unique ingredients, Remedi Foods was born. We provide real ingredients, superfoods, adaptogens, and simplicity. We curate high quality and unique superfood ingredients based on ancient nutrition allowing you to rest easy and simply enjoy a balancing, tasty, good-for-you treat! By spreading the power of Ayurveda and continuing to educate my customers, I plan to spark a major trend in Ayurveda that will heal the country.
We really hope you enjoy what we have to offer!
