Founder & head baker, Laura Savinovich, comes from a family with a long history of Autoimmune Disease. In the last three generations, all the females, from her mother to her daughter, have some form of Autoimmune Disease ranging from Scleroderma and Pemphigus to Hashimoto’s and Lupus. In 2003, she was diagnosed with moderate RA and in 2010 she learned about something that would literally change her life, the “Paleo Lifestyle.” She decided to do some extensive research before jumping in with both feet, clearing all the cupboards, and disrupting everyone’s life, but soon found that finding tasty foods that adhered to her new strict dietary guidelines proved very difficult. So, she knew she had to make it herself.
She began by searching through her own family recipes and then started scouring the book stores and internet to find recipes that could be transformed into those tasty treats and baked goods that she remembered and was unable to find in the stores. After much experimentation, reformulation and manipulation, with ingredients that were foreign to her, she began to test her creations on family and friends with great results. Now at Snackin’ Free, they offer everything from the best paleo breads and tortillas, salad dressings and barbecue sauce, to cookies and cupcakes all without containing any gluten, grain, dairy, soy, peanuts, processed sugars or artificial ingredients.
