Growing up, I ate bags of overly-processed junk food for dinner and sugar-filled desserts for breakfast. After becoming exposed to the fashion industry in 2012, I decided to adopt a healthier, balanced way of living. It was through this journey that I discovered the powerful effect foods can have on our bodies. From trying fad diets to “health” foods that never delivered what was promised, I eventually learned the truth behind good health—whole foods with real ingredients.
Throughout this journey, I found myself eating a healthy bowl of oatmeal every morning. I always cooked my oatmeal with non-dairy milk, a spoonful of nut butter, a sprinkle of unrefined sugar and topped it with a fruit of my choice. I loved the feeling of warmth, fullness and energy it gave me to tackle my day. One.. two.. three years went by and I still find myself eating oatmeal almost every day. However, living the life of a model made it difficult to set a routine for healthy eating and living. From red eye flights to long work hours, the convenience food section at the local market became my new best friend. I searched the marketplace for the best grab & go oatmeal for my busiest days and discovered all the options were either too high in refined sugars or so bland I couldn’t stomach the entire serving. I spoke to many people who had busy, on-the-go lifestyles like myself and realized most people settle for unhealthy, sugar-filled pastries or skip breakfast overall.
With that in mind, I set out to recreate my homemade, creamy nut-oat based oatmeal that provides the perfect sprinkle of unrefined sweetness to meet the healthy, on-the-go lifestyle of youthful adults like myself. I wanted to share my daily dose of warmth and happiness with the rest of the world, and with much excitement, Mylk Labs was born.
I hope Mylk Labs products can bring you good health, convenience and much happiness as it does to me!
