Dealing with gluten allergies or following a paleo diet can make snacking a chore, but the ladies behind Nomz Energy Bites want to make healthy snacking easy. Right now, they’re raising money through Kickstarter to help make NOMZ available Canada-wide! Great for mid-work-day cravings, the post-gym commute, or Sunday night HBO snacking, Nomz satisfy your sweet tooth in a healthy way. We spoke with the women behind the brand about their plan to feed the people tasty snacks.

What is the benefit of the Paleo diet? What changes has it brought about for you? 

The Paleo diet means eating real, whole foods that are nutrient-dense and good for you: meat, fish, eggs, fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds. It’s about inner health and fuelling your body by eating clean. For me, it has increased my energy levels, improved my sleep, brightened my skin, and boosted my happiness!

How did you come up with the idea for NOMZ energy bites?
Energy Bites were a treat I would make for myself when I was craving something sweet and healthy. I would make them for potlucks, parties, and family gatherings. The response was overwhelmingly positive: everyone loved them and couldn’t believe they were healthy! My mom gave me the idea that perhaps this was a product that could be sold in the market to encourage others to make healthier choices in their every day life. Instead of reaching for chips, cookies, or a candy bar, people can indulge in Nomz Energy Bites and feel just as satisfied.

What makes them unique?
Nomz Energy Bites cater to people with the following dietary preferences: no refined sugar, no peanuts, no dairy, no eggs, no additives, no trans fats, gluten free and paleo. The ingredients we use are simple, familiar, and easy to read. In addition to being healthy, Nomz Energy Bites are renowned for their deliciousness.

Why should people back the Kickstarter? 
If our goal is reached, we will be able to create a happier and healthier Toronto. We are two young Canadian women entrepreneurs who have aspirations for Nomz to be available wherever a Kit Kat bar is sold to provide a healthy alternative.

Thinking about supporting them? $25 will get you a delicious box of Nomz Energy Bites!
