Flavour doesn’t always have to come from butter and salt.
Most of us cook to feel good about our food, and many of us lean on butter, salt and sugar to ensure that meal brings comfort and warmth. While good quality butter, salt and sugar have a place in a well-balanced diet, I truly believe that seasonings and whole food ingredients, plucked from the earth, can provide flavour and power to your “feel good” meals.
Where other seasoning companies go wrong.
My decade-long in-depth nutrition and culinary studies made me realize there was a gap in the market for seasonings and superfood blends that tasted great and were made and sourced with high-quality, whole-food-based ingredients.
Many companies provided delicious blends that enhanced your meals but were made with additives, artificial ingredients, GMOs and excess sodium or sugar. Or, alternatively, were healthy and wholesome, but didn’t taste great.
There were not a lot of blends out there that were wholesome and whole food based, as well as flavour-packed!
This is how Nourished by Heirloom came to life.
My Purpose is to Nourish Others
I always knew my purpose was to nourish others. As an empath, and a care-giver to my mom, I learned that food is more than just macro-nutrients. The micro-nutrients in good quality ingredients (and the meals prepared using those ingredients) can be used as medicine, to heal myself and the people I love most. I am grateful to be able to use my culinary and nutrition background to develop flavourful blends that bring both of those worlds together.
By making and offering our unique blends of Culinary Seasonings, Superfoods and Super Boosters, it is my intention to create a harmonious connection between nutrition and flavour, making our products the easiest it’s ever been to nourish yourself and your loved ones.

What Does the Sunflower Mean?
I incorporated a sunflower into our logo to honour my mom, who passed away from a long battle with cancer in 2019.
My mom was a beautiful person inside and out with the biggest, brightest, and colourful personality. She always chose to follow the light and stood strong despite the many stormy days she endured. Just like a sunflower.
