Meet Linda Martinucci, the passionate foodie and founder of Simply Swap Foods and our latest rising and thriving food maker!
Linda has not only come up with an innovative and healthy alternative to everyday treats, she is also a recipe writer, as well as a food writer in the Mornington Peninsula.
"Food has always been a passion of mine. I'm always in the kitchen, and I'm also interested in writing."
Linda has spent over 15 years learning about nutrition and healthy ways to fuel the human body and has used this to develop her own unique (and downright delicious!) products.
We love Linda's passion for encouraging a healthier lifestyle through swapping out sugars for other treats that use natural sweeteners. The idea for her business came after she removed sugar from her diet over three years ago, lost 15 kg, and gained more energy and mental clarity as a result. Having her favourite cakes and sweets occasionally, made the switch to a healthier lifestyle more manageable, and this is how Simply Swap Foods was born!
Linda makes a commitment to ensuring everything she does focuses on improving people's health and the health of the natural environment. Her integrity really do set her and her products apart, and a lot of time is spent sourcing the right products, and lots of thought goes into every detail.
We love Simply Swap Foods' new Hug in a Mug. They're cupcakes that you simply heat up in the microwave, and they feature protein-rich almond meal in vanilla or chocolate flavours. Linda's recipe-writing background really shines with each product as she guides you towards adding in a few extra ingredients to ramp the flavours or leaving the product as is — the choice is yours!
Her porridges are made with flaxseed meal which is an excellent source of protein and is loaded with health benefits, and are such an enriching way to start the day!
All of Linda's products are Keto-friendly, wheat and grain-free and have no added sugars. Simply Swap Foods' purpose is to educate the community around sugar and nutrition so everyone can live their best and healthiest life. That's a pretty special mission if you ask us.
