You’re listening to Jewish Latin Princess, I’m Yael Trusch, your Host. Welcome to the show! I hope everybody is healthy and taking the necessary health precautions while at the same time staying calm, and positive and strengthening their trust in G-d. While recording this, my guest and I had our kids off from school just as a precautionary measure. Hopefully, by the time this airs, we will have passed this crisis everywhere in the world in a miraculous way. But, in the mean time, the show must go on.
Today, I’m delighted to introduce you to a business owner, a mom, a CEO, the Founder of Stylish Spoon which is a healthy baked goods company. And when I say healthy I mean healthy – organic, gluten free, non GMO, no processed sugars. You name it, Ilana Eck is on top of her game trying to bring nutrient dense healthy treats to moms and children and helping people make better food choices.
This is something that I’ve recently become more conscious of as I’ve had to make some shifts in our food choices for two of my children, one in particular for whom we’re trying to reverse an auto immune condition. So, I’m delighted to find Jewish women like Ilana who can help all of us make these better choices for our families. Her journey with healthier eating began at a young age, while in college and continued over the years, while eventually she made a career pivot to become a full fledge entrepreneur. We talked about both those journeys, her healthier eating journey and later on, her entrepreneurial journey: some of the challenges involved, consistent practices that help her live a more mindful healthier life, as well as some of her Jewish values and traditions, and the very exciting move towards kosher products as part of the Stylish Spoon line. You’re going to love her and just like me you’re going to want to try these treats! Let’s hear the lovely Ilana Eck.
