EP072: Heather Kelly


Heather Kelly, the creator of Heathers Choice, was born and raised in Alaska. her family was always active, having fun in the outdoors and eating healthy. Through her college years, she began competing in rowing. It was similar to the white water rafting she did and thought it was would fun! She learned many things along that adventure; What your body weight does to your rowing percentage, when she lost weight and what it did to her strength, etc. It was these facts that lead her into learning more about food and our connection to it. She became a Certified Phycology of Eating Coach and Evolutionary Nutritionist. 

More came as she kept visiting the lower 48 and realized how easy it was to lose a lot of your food by leaving it in a hot car in the dessert. She wanted to create something for everyone to use that was easy and healthy. This came as a big headache as she realized what was being put into our "Natural Dried" foods.
