Mac-n-Mo’s Story

Mac–n-Mo’s Morselicious Mix was created out of love by Mo (that’s me) for Mac (that’s my Dad).

Mac N Mo

After my Dad, Mac, a diabetic, survived two heart attacks and quadruple bypass surgery, he was discharged with very strict dietary guidelines. As someone with celiac disease and my survivor of a medical miracle, I was quite familiar with those challenges, 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-rich
    • real-food

    -became my Morselicious mission.

One Saturday morning in March, Dad begged me to bake him a sweet treat while keeping in line with his new dietary restrictions. My challenge was to find real food ingredients with no-sugar, almost no-sodium, plant-rich and no-preservatives. 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 ‘MORSELICIOUS’ for Dad.”

After mixing too many batches to count, using my ‘Morselicious Mix’ ingredients, we finally found a winner. My sister, Mom and I devoured them and most importantly, Dad savored each morsel, exclaiming, “these are MORSELICIOUS!” We shared a few bags with friends, and soon I was taking orders for my gluten-free, grain-free, Paleo & Keto-friendly, vegan Morselicious Mix, a blend of;

  • organic coconut flour
  • Almond meal
  • organic unsweetened coconut
  • organic chia seeds
  • spices

and I became a business owner. Mo and her dad, Mac.

Graduating from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition as a certified integrative health coach, in addition to my on-going education provided me with the education and expertise to develop my career as a health coach, educator, key-note speaker and recipe developer working with clients all over the world. I have written two cookbooks and am working on a third one featuring my Mac-n-Mo’s Morselicious Mix.

Low-sugar, low-sodium, plant-rich, less fat. None of this, more of that. Thus began Mo’s jingle:

Cookies have eggs, sugar and butter fat. Mac-n-Mo’s have none o’ that!

  1. Hi Mo,
    I’m so glad that I was able to get the last 3 packages at Erewhon’s. My family and I each enjoyed the different selections. I will be placing an order when I return to NYC so I can get your e-cookbook of Morsilicious recipes. They fit so well into my new low carb, low glycemic, mostly Paleo-type lifestyle. So glad to have discovered you and your fabulous product.

  2. Hi Mo!

    Wondering how the Morselicious treats rate on the glycemic index? A friend of mine has lost lots of weight just making sure she eats mostly low-glycemic foods.

    1. HI Charlotte,
      Thanks for the question.
      On Weight Watchers, 2 morsels = 1 point.
      Each morsel contains 1g of sugar and the sugar is ONLY from
      the cranberry in the Pumpkin Cranberry, which is fructose
      and the Chocolate Chip 1 g of sugar is from the vegan chocolate.
      Do you want more specifics?
      Thanks! Mo
