Stellar Eats: healthy eats that taste like treats.
Stellar Eats was born to create healthy eats that taste like treats.
This means we don’t believe that choosing healthy foods should mean restricting the things you love. We’re done with brands that try to make us feel insecure so we’ll buy into their diets. We’d rather recount fond memories with food than calories. Mostly, we’re so over health food that tastes like cardboard.
We think healthy eating should be easy, enjoyable, and empowering.
Our mixes are formulated to maximize nutritional punch using minimal ingredients that your body will love. Most importantly, they taste decadently delicious. We want you to feel inspired in the kitchen and experience healthy eating that tastes stellar.
As a small business, we put a lot of heart and hard work into these mixes. Our driving force is seeing our customers feel confident in the kitchen, making delicious food that they love to eat. On our website, we have tons of recipes for you to get creative with and most importantly, have fun doing so!
MEET OUR TEAM
Stella is a Holistic Nutritionist (CNP), Recipe Developer and Writer behind the popular wellness blog Stellar Health and founder of Stellar Eats. Prior to entering the wellness world, she struggled with disordered eating for many years. Now, the driving force between all of her entrepreneurial endeavours is to help people cultivate a healthy relationship with food and their bodies. She wants people to understand that nourishing foods can be delicious and that wellness does not have to mean sacrifice or restriction. This mission-driven ambition is shared by her partners, Michelle and Emma and she is so grateful to have two strong women to work alongside with on this Stellar Eats journey.
Michelle has a sweet spot for start-ups. Her most notable achievement was co-founding Koru Distribution, an innovative company that connected International brands with retailers in Canada, among them the infamous S'well bottle. She is excited to bring her passion for launching brands to the Stellar Eats Baking Mixes. Ever since becoming a mom, she has been on the hunt for healthy treats to feed her son – surprisingly, it’s very hard to find food products with ingredients she can get behind. Once she tried a cookie she was hooked! These treats have even gotten the stamp of approval from her sweet one-and-a-half-year-old, Palmer. Perfect for mom AND baby!
Emma is a self-taught cook, writer and recipe developer with a deep appreciation for the healing properties of food and the profound positive effects that real, whole foods can have on the body. After studying management at McGill, she worked in marketing and sales before deciding to pursue her creative passions full-time. She's worked both in the kitchen and on the brand side for food companies, in addition to doing freelance writing, recipe development and photography. Emma's mission is to show people that healthy, delicious food should not be boring or inaccessible, and is thrilled to join Stella and Michelle to work towards this mission.
Real & Recognizable
Our almond flour is made by grinding almonds into a fine meal, and we use it as the base for our mixes. Naturally grain-free and gluten-free, almonds are rich in protein, fibre and calcium.
Coconut flour is made by grinding dried coconut meat into a flour, providing structure and density to our cookies and pancakes. Coconut is high in fibre and naturally sweet - in fact, we also use coconut sugar to sweeten our cookie and cake mixes. Coconut sugar is an unrefined sweetener high in minerals and inulin fibre, which slows the rate at which it raises your blood sugar, making it relatively low on the glycemic index. This means no sugar rush and subsequent crash. While we try to keep our sugar content as low as possible, we prefer coconut sugar to other natural sweeteners for these benefits.
Date sugar is made by dehydrating medjool dates and grinding them into a fine powder. It's naturally high in fibre and low on the glycemic index making it a fantastic sugar substitute - with a rich velvety flavor.
Extracted from the tubers of tropical plants, arrowroot and tapioca starches are often used as a thickening agent in cooking/baking. This is the ingredient that gives our cakes and cookies their decadent chewiness.
Cocoa is made by crushing whole cocoa beans and removing the fat or the cocoa butter. What you're left with is a decadent chocolate-y powder rich in magnesium, antioxidants & polyphenols.
