What was at first a series of kitchen experiments soon transformed into a passion of Sasha’s, the founder of Botanibites. Sasha has always enjoyed experimenting and learning about food, wellness, herbal medicine and the like – and as a wellness enthusiast and herbal pharmacist, dietary concerns and nutrition were always key topics of conversation.
Sasha began her innate interest in natural healing during her time at Boston University working at Whole Foods Market. Upon graduating in 2014, Sasha relocated to her hometown of Miami, FL and embarked on a new journey merging her Chinese heritage with her passion for healing by entering a Master’s program in Oriental Medicine. This led her to follow her passions further by transitioning from being a buyer for the Whole Body department at Whole Foods Market to being an herbal pharmacist at Orion Herbs. She learned odds and ends of herbal medicine, acupuncture, and other forms of alternative therapies during her managerial position there.
Sasha saw the power of diet and herbs in each patient she met. As Sasha started experimenting with healthy alternatives to sweets and desserts, she became inspired to create a health-conscious, herb-infused, beneficial way to enjoy sweets away from guilt, digestive upset, and sugar frenzy, After creating the perfect paleo recipe and adding herbal blends to her unique, moist creations, Botanists was born.
March 2017, Botanibites launched, backed by widespread support by the lovely individuals of the NSEV and Orion Herb’s community and friends. The herbal, organic, gluten and grain free, non-dairy mini muffins were a huge hit instantly.
Made with a base of coconut flour, coconut sugar, eggs, and coconut milk, these allergen & paleo friendly muffins are tasty, filling, nutritional, and purposeful. Herbs and healthy eating are where it’s at, and these unique muffins serve all your deepest desires and pleasures without guilt.
Sasha hopes to educate people on the benefits of eating a paleo friendly diet through Botanibites by providing a functional, surprisingly moist, delectable treat that can be indulged in without wreaking digestive havoc any time of the day.
