"TAKING THE GUILT OUT OF INDULGENCE"
I remember scribbling that on a napkin as I nibbled on my second (okay fine, third) chocolate chip cookie from my favorite NYC bakery.
As a health-nut, I was overcome with the guilt of "cheating" on my clean diet. So much so that the guilt took away from how much joy every deliciously gooey bite of the cookie usually gave me.
IT ALL STARTED WITH A CRAZY SWEET-TOOTH…
I've had an undying love for cookies and milk for as long as I can remember – I could eat them for every meal, and as a kid (frankly, even as a college student) I almost always did!
It wasn't until I started working (and my metabolism gave me a little nudge) that I became much more conscious about my dietary choices. In an effort to be healthier I decided to give up all added and artificial sweeteners – yup, that included “all-natural” options like honey, agave, maple syrup, coconut sugar, stevia, and many other forms of "hidden" added sugars.
However, my commitment to a sugar-free lifestyle meant that there was no product out there for me when I did need a little indulgence. NOMM was born out of my own personal need to satisfy my sweet-tooth, without the added sugar and guilt.
NOMM, which stands for Nutrition On My Mind, is a first-of-its kind vegan cookie that is made without added sugar, added fat, or artificial ingredients. With just eight simple ingredients, each 160 calorie cookie lets you indulge, guilt-free.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read about my journey – NOMM has truly been a dream come true, and I am incredibly grateful to be able to share a bite of it with you!
