Vanessa fell head over heels in love with cacao. Her life became chocolate dipped... and her clients never "forgot" to take their supplements again!
In 2007 - when raw food and green juice were fringe - a wellness coach with training in preventative medicine, and passion for culinary exploration discovered the secret to getting her clients to remember their supplements every day.
Intrigued by a lecture on the health benefits of theobroma cacao but disappointed by the flavor of the one product she could find made with it (fudgy date "chocolate") Vanessa began experimenting with raw cacao beans and dried fruit in a coffee grinder.
A few short months later, she unveiled chocolate as the ultimate untapped delivery system for Ayurvedic, Chinese, and South American herbs. And thus, a new category of chocolate - functional chocolate - emerged to the market.
With no startup captital or investment, her bars - labeled "Gnosis" to acknowledge the intuitive wisdom she sought to empower in her clients - became the first raw chocolate bars (and certainly the first goji berry and reishi mushroom) to sit in Whole Foods Market.
Vanessa's life is dedicated to maintaining integrity in every facet of her company as it grows - pushing the boundaries of what an unfunded company can accomplish in one of the most competitive categories in the food industry. With a vision of dipping the world in functional chocolate, Vanessa is honored to collaborate with revolutionary entrepreneurs, high integrity companies, and the mainstream media to ignite a preventative healthcare system without sacrifice, side effects, or stents. full story here
