About Us

We create foods that bring FREEDOM & JOY back to those on restorative diets.

Our company’s mission comes straight from our struggle.  Fifteen years ago we were both diagnosed with life-changing autoimmune disorders.  Our bodies were out of balance.  Sometimes when this happens, the food we consume amplifies that imbalance. 

But the body is smart – it’s simply telling us something – and when we learn to listen, we can begin to restore ourselves.

We know it is difficult and isolating to remove certain foods from your diet.  With our baking mixes, you can feel the freedom and taste the joy as you boldly stand for a happier, healthier, more whole you.

Yours in Health,

Heather & Kerry

About our Co-Founders

Heather McDonough


Heather is a Nutritional Therapy Practioner, recipe developer and chef who has worked in the health and wellness industry since 2011. After getting a Psoriatic Arthritis diagnosis in 2005, Heather became determined to avoid pharmaceutical therapies and looked to holistic alternatives to heal her body and reverse her symptoms.  Diet therapy has been significant in sending her autoimmune disease into remission.

Heather’s passion for helping people on restricted diets began when she started a small café in Wichita, KS.  She developed a menu that catered to everyone and dazzled patrons who found it difficult to dine out on restricted diets.  Heather enjoys creating G.A.N.G.S.T.E.R. recipes for those who are following an AIP diet or those who want to eat wholesome, gut-friendly, delicious food.  You don’t have to tough it out— eat G.A.N.G.S.T.E.R.

Kerry Brown


Kerry has been in the field of consumer branding for 20 years. Most recently she owned and operated New York City’s most luxurious hotel for dogs. She also worked for almost a decade with athletic apparel powerhouse lululemon athletica, ultimately overseeing the company’s U.S. Community Marketing during a period of tremendous growth.

Kerry is a mom of a busy 5 year old.  She is also a Type 1 diabetic, and is thus dependent upon insulin to survive.  Kerry recently underwent surgery for a partial thyroidectomy, and thus also manages her thyroid levels. She has done the Auto-Immune Protocol (AIP) diet for months at a time, and now eats AIP the majority of her regular diet.  While she has been able to make numerous re-introductions, she finds her body feels healthier and younger on AIP.  She loves creating amazing products to bring joy to individuals and families with special dietary needs.
