Founded in 2013, WholeMe is the partnership of Krista Steinbach and Mary Kosir – two women on a mission to change not only how we snack, but also how we live. WholeMe was born out of the need for a grain-free, whole-food based snack (that actually tasted good!) when Mary's husband was diagnosed with Type I diabetes. After a few red-wine-laced brainstorming sessions, some crazy recipe ideas and late-night baking sessions, Mary knew she was onto something.
Enter Krista. A former bakery owner and pastry chef, Krista knows a thing or two about recipe development. After giving up grains and sugar for a 30-day paleo challenge, Krista noticed a shift in both her physical and mental health. Connecting over this shared passion to better themselves and to lead whole and honest lives, Mary and Krista joined forces when they met at CrossFit St. Paul in 2012. The two have been lifting heavy ever since!
Since the launch of their Kickstarter campaign in 2014 – a campaign that raised over $40,000 in just 30 days – Krista and Mary have released new products and retired some old, but one log continues to fuel their fire: the desire to redefine the snack food category. WholeMe was built upon the need for a whole-food alternative to the sugar-laden snacks that surround us, and this is what continues to inspire them today.
