A pastry chef and a nutritionist get together to create Soul Grain
Sylvia is a pastry chef and Liza is a Nutritionist. We blended our interests and talents to come up with very interesting granola flavors rooted in our diverse backgrounds.
The hippest granola in America!
Our brand offers flavors that have not been featured in granola! We have a very distinct texture that is light and crispy vs hard and crunchy. Our flavors are rooted in flavors that are commonly found in soul food dishes such as banana pudding and sweet potato casserole.. but healthier! Our flavors are very unique and culturally inclusive.
I am a Licensed Nutritionist and I am so excited to bring to you this innovative granola! I have a MS in Nutrition and Functional Medicine, a BA in Psychology and many certifications including Dr. Amen Brain Health Coach certification. I am very passionate about the purpose each food has on our bodies and mental health. I am known to pursue all of my passions, as we all should! Brain health, self-care and nutrition are definitely top 3 and I am so lucky to be able to explore all 3 within SOUL GRAIN.. I have been in the wellness industry for over 20 years, I am a proud mom of 3 amazing humans, and I am thrilled to continue my journey in the CPG space.
I love food and I don't like wasting time and calories on anything that is not delicious. That is how I approached these granola recipes. I wanted them to taste vibrant and amazing, be healthy and reflect our rich culture as Black people. Granola does not have to be boring! After acquiring my cosmetology license at the age of 16 and later graduating from Howard University with a BA in journalism, I decided to pursue my passion for cooking by enrolling in culinary school . 25+ years later, I have accumulated a wide range of culinary experiences, including working in restaurants in LA, NY, Anguilla and DC, where gourmet retailers Dean and DeLuca carried a line of my desserts. In addition to my work as a culinary artist, I own a salon in the Twin cities and I am a wife and mother of 2! Looking forward to introducing you to my venture SOUL GRAIN!
