August is Women Owned Business month at Erewhon. There would be no way to tell all the stories that line our shelves, but we picked a few to share with you. On my list of favorite vegan products, Meital Atias’ Orga is definitely at the top. But believe me, you don’t have to be vegan to enjoy her sweet or savory snacks!

What inspired you to start this business?

Seeing all the junk and bad food out there I felt like I had to share my knowledge and talent and make food that is good and healthy for your body, tasty (for your soul) and can help people to eat healthier.

What advice would you give to your teenage self?

Learn learn and learn and do not take anything for granted

As a female entrepreneur what are the pros of being a woman in charge of your own business

I am in charge of my own schedule that way I can always find some time for my family.

How does your product appeal to all different types of women?

My products taste really good so if you are healthy or not they are delicious, fun and addicting to snack on. They are gluten-free, vegan, soy free and grain free.

Name three things that guided you to success?

Strong work ethic, ability to adapt and my family.

Describe your brand in three words

Guilt free snacks.

What does balance mean to you?

Being complete.

What three things can you not live without

Love, happiness and faith!

What is one piece of advice for aspiring female entrepreneurs

Be open to new experiences, always believe in yourself, never give up and make sure you find a balance between work/career and family.

What is your superpower?

Being an entrepreneur and the mom I always wanted to be without compromising anything.

One wellness hack that everyone should know

Do not eat anything until 12 PM and make sure you’re drinking plenty of water to allow cleansing in the morning.

Where did your passion for health and beauty came from?

It started at home. My mother never used medications with us and always used natural food that is in any kitchen. When I was 17 years old I started to search and learn about the connection of food and healing. When I was 21 I studied Naturopathic Medicine and Chinese Medicine. I fell in love but still felt that something was missing.

I finally found most of the answers to my questions when I got my certification of a plant-based lifestyle health coach at Hippocrates Institute.

What makes you beautiful?

When my mind, body and soul are all being nurtured at the same time.

What is the title of your autobiography?

You are what you absorb

What do you love about Erewhon? 🙂

If it’s here it’s good for you !!! It could not be more true than that. Another thing is they have the best customer service I’ve ever seen in any market.
