It all started when I packed my bags to go to India to get some traditional medicinal treatment after being devastated by the diagnoses of 2 autoimmune disorders in my early 30s. There I healed, ate traditional foods and pondered why I was not eating more of these in the US. Back in California, I realized these traditional healing foods were hard to find, cook and just didn't fit with the on the go modern lifestyle and taste buds.
As I researched the traditional wisdom behind the diverse healing crops, I realized how helpful they were to restore the vital soil health which is currently strained due to Industrial Agriculture and severe monocropping methods. These nutritional foods were the answer to healing our guts, reducing the growing amount of food intolerance while also helping restore the fragile soil ecosystems and increasing food crop diversity to create more resilient food systems.
Determined to solve this problem, I decided to turn the first healing meal (A curry made from 3 beans) that I had relished back in the Indian Village into a delicious crunchy puffed snack that was packed with nutrition and irresistible in taste. Thus Svaa Haa foods was born, named aptly in the fond memory of the gratitude prayers we would say before consuming our meals, thanking the food for nourishing our mind and body and thanking the farmers and Mother Earth for providing us the food.
To mindfully create snacks inspired by ancient wisdom, using diverse food ingredients that are all natural plant based, gluten and Soy free and absolutely have no isolates or artificial ingredients ever
We believe our foods should not only taste good but also nourish us while healing our planet . By honoring our ancient food wisdom, we can revive lost crops, solve the growing problems of food intolerances by diversifying our plate.
Join us in our quest to create greener, better, safer, kinder food systems that heal our Mother Earth
