About the company

When Michelle began making fresh baby food for her firstborn son in 2007, she never imagined she’d soon be delivering her handmade purees to families all over New York City. Once a few friends' babies sampled her delicious concoctions, word quickly spread and the demand was instantaneous. Michelle loved the idea of more babies eating her organic purees, so she happily quit her corporate job, rented a kitchen, and started making baby food full time. Read More

Daily Insight: Protein – What’s the Difference?




Proteins are the basic building blocks that serve the purpose of building, maintaining, and growing the body. In essence, protein is made up of amino acids that are held together through peptide bonds and are then broken down inside the body to increase function.

There are 9 essential amino acids that the human body needs to function, all of which have to be taken in through foods. These are included into every-day foods like meats, dairy products, fruits, etc. The actual protein, which is made of various combinations of amino acid chains, is popularly used as a supplement to increase muscle strength, muscle size, leanness, and protein intake.




Supplement Spotlight: Onnit The Dolce Whey Grass Fed Protein Isolate


Whey Protein
The most popular protein is whey, derived from cow’s milk, and the reason for that is that all the essential amino acids required in the human body can be found there. Hence, whey protein is often used as a supplement of protein intake as well as for gaining and maintaining muscle. Onnit has launched some incredible innovative whey protein products.




Drink Spotlight: Silk Plant Based Protein Soy Milk
Soy Protein
Similar to whey, Soy protein comes from the soy bean and is also regarded as a complete protein, benefiting the user with all 9 essential amino acids. Since the protein is derived from a plant, the soy plant, it is widely used among vegetarians as the best source of protein and muscle building. A reliable brand for soy protein is Silk, plant based beverages.




Supplement Spotlight: Protein World Pea Protein Isolate
Pea Protein
Pea protein comes from the yellow pea and as such it is an easily digestible protein. Unlike whey and soy, pea does not offer all 9 essential amino acids while it has advantage for users who have digestion problems and a sensitive stomach. Protein World is a good brand that provides all-natural pea protein products.


Other proteins
There are also other types of proteins such as ones derived from egg whites and hemp seeds, though they are less popularly used as supplements. One should consider their own needs before choosing the right kind of protein provider while keeping in mind their goals and body tolerance.
