This Pie Is Nuts has been one heck of a ride…and I’m grateful for all of it.
I was 25 when I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, it led me to make some changes in my life. I started thinking more about the food I was eating, which led me to the Natural Gourmet Institute. When I graduated from Chef’s program, I came out with a lot more knowledge and not a clue what to do with it.
That is…until I started making some pies for my family. The more I made them, the more I loved them. I thought other people may feel the same, so I started selling them at some local markets…and then grew to selling in stores around NYC. The rest is pie history!
TPIN was thriving and I wanted so much to expand the business but that was a tough hurdle! As life would have it, some amazing people were put in my path. We decided to team up and see what we could do together. We created some new fruit pies that are not only Vegan, Paleo and Gluten free…but Nut free as well! (Except coconuts!) Now these pies are really nuts!
Not to worry, we’re still looking into ways to ship our original pies and granola, we would never leave them behind. Here’s to the next chapter of TPIN… and to all the great people I get to do it with.
