Adaba Foods is a small business that currently offers nourishing gluten free (dairy free, soy free and usually vegan) snacks, as well as mixes, cooking/baking classes, and private instruction to help people fit special diets, or just healthy eating, into their lives.
My baked products and mixes are made from amazing ingredients like amaranth, millet, quinoa, teff, coconut and macadamia nut oils, unrefined sweeteners, and whatever is local and seasonal where I live in Boulder, Colorado. These ingredients all happen to be gluten free, by the way, but they are well-worth getting to know regardless of any dietary restrictions. My baked products are also free of dairy and soy (except soy lecithin in chocolate chips) and almost all are vegan or can be made vegan.
I also make lots of delicious raw snacks, both sweet and savory. These snack are packed full of nutrition, made with nuts, seeds, fruits, and vegetables, with the occasional sprouted whole grain thrown in. The menu for these varies seasonally, but might include cashew coconut macaroons, carrot cake, thumbprint cookies , sweet and salty pumpkin seed snacks, herbed crackers, and veggie crackers.
My goal in creating this business was to encourage a connection to the foods that fuel us, the planet we live on, and all those who share this space. I hope to educate people about eating whole foods in general, and in a way that is in harmony with individual bodies and the Earth. I also hope to encourage people to bring the creation of food back into the home in a way that is supportive, not overwhelming. I’d like to provide tips on treading more lightly and I hope to be able to articulate what I think really needs to be said about our responsibilities to each other and those who will after us.
