Mac–n-Mo’s Morselicious Mix was created out of love by Mo (that’s me) for Mac (that’s my Dad).
After my Dad, a diabetic, survived two heart attacks and quadruple bypass surgery, he was discharged with very clear and strict dietary guidelines. I was quite familiar with that as someone with Celiac disease, further complicated by not being able to digest grains. Creating meals and treats that were gluten-free, grain-free, low-carb, no-sugar, low-sodium, plant-based, real-food became my Morselicious mission and Mac-n-Mo's Morselicious Mix was born.
Graduating from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition as a Certified Integrative Health Coach gave me the education and expertise to develop my career as a Health Coach-Educator, Key-Note Speaker, Recipe Developer working with clients all over the world.
Low-salt, low-sugar, low-fat, low-cholesterol, plant-based, more fiber. None of this, some of that. More of this, less of that. Thus began Mo’s jingle’s:
Cookies have eggs, sugar and butter fat. Mac-n-Mo’s have none o’ that!
One Saturday morning in March, Dad begged me to bake him something sweet adhering to his new dietary restrictions. My challenge was to find all-natural ingredients with no preservatives, very little salt, no added sugar, fiber, etc. Mom and I went to several grocery stores, and I searched for as many tasty “legal” ingredients as I could find.
By the third store, Mom asked, “What on earth do you plan to make with all this?” I shrugged, “I have no idea, but I’m going to do my best to create something magical (which became 'MORSELICIOUS') for Dad.”
After mixing many batches with my Morselicious Mix ingredients, we finally found a winner. My mom, sister, and I devoured them and most importantly, Dad savored each morsel, exclaiming, “these are MORSELICIOUS!" We shared bags with friends, and soon I was taking orders for my grain-free, Paleo & Keto-friendly, vegan Morselicious Mix, a blend of almond meal, coconut flour, unsweetened coconut, chia seeds and spices.
Mo graduated from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition (IIN) and became a Board Certified Health Coach (AADP). She has written two cookbooks and is working on a third one featuring Mac-n-Mo's Morselicious Mix.
