About the company

Oddly enough, the roots of EPIC were planted shortly after Katie and I became vegetarians. We wrongly believed that a “clean diet” was plant based and in order to replenish our bodies after hard workouts, we consumed large amounts of soy and other highly processed proteins.

To compound the stress we were putting on our systems, we followed the advice of sports nutrition “experts” and prescribed to a diet that was high in carbohydrates and low in fat. As a result, we were making ourselves unintentionally sick with gastrointestinal distress and a myriad of inflammatory ailments.

Not knowing what to do, we decided to go vegan and when things got worse, we decided to follow a raw food diet.

Food Spotlight: Empire Ghost Pepper Mayonnaise

 

 

The ghost pepper aka Bhut Jolokia is one of the worlds hottest peppers  - rated at more than 1 million Scoville heat units!

Scared? You should be. This stuff is made to melt brains. We had to wear gas masks while taming this beast and it was worth every painful second. Mayonnaise is the perfect vehicle for you to experience the flavor of this otherwise frightening pepper.

Use as you would hot sauce, pair this with some deviled eggs or juicy pork chops and brace yourself... a little goes a long way.
