Our Story of Conscious Gelato for Mother's Day
For some people, mothers can be just moms, with the love, chaos, and everything that comes along with the title. But in my case, she also my mentor, my friend, and my business partner.
When my mom was diagnosed with stomach cancer, it was a gut-wrenching moment for our family. We knew we needed to take better care of our bodies and be mindful of what we were fueling ourselves with. But during this battle, we stumbled upon a problem: there weren't any healthy dessert options that were actually delicious.
Now, my mom taught me a valuable lesson. She said, "During troubled times, while some people cry, others sell tissues." We saw this as an opportunity to help other people by creating a gelato that was both healthy and tasty. A gelato made consciously!
Conscious of the ingredients, as we are advocates for clean eating. Conscious of the way we make it, to be environmentally friendly. Conscious of the consumer who will indulge in it, as we want to contribute to healthier and stronger communities. All this, and we made sure the gelato was still creamy, high quality, and full of flavor.
Our bond as mother and daughter only strengthened during this journey. We built our relationship on trust, love, and mutual respect. And together, we are creating something that can change people's lives one scoop at a time.
As Mother's Day approaches, I want to honor my mother and all the mothers out there who inspire their children to pursue their dreams. Our story is a reminder to cherish the relationships we have with our mothers and appreciate the privilege of being together.
Happy Mother's Day to all the amazing mothers out there!
