The PlantAction Story
My name is Giselle, I am PlantAction’s founder. I started training for my first marathon back in 2011. Having always been athletic, my twin sister and I led pretty busy schedules that always included some form of exercise, but a marathon was a much larger challenge.
At about that same time, I was seeing many different specialists to help reduce my food intolerances, and namely gluten and dairy were common food groups I was recommended to stay away from.
While learning about my new dietary choices, I stumbled upon many books that promoted a plant-based lifestyle to reduce inflammation and improve my athletic performance. So I decided to gradually incorporate those foods and noticed a remarkable change in my energy level, especially as the miles were piling up towards the upcoming 26.2-mile race.
As a “certified foodie”, I struggled to find a granola on the market that were simultaneously plant-based, free of gluten, and tasty, so I started experimenting in my own kitchen and the result is a crunchy, fresh, fragrant, and gorgeously golden combination that I promise will wow you - even if you are not a granola-type, pretty much guaranteed! Our aim at PlantAction is to translate that same achieved quality to all our future products.
That’s how PlantAction was born: from the combined need to accommodate my dietary needs with my desire for delicious, gourmet-tasting foods, as long as these foods have the least amount of allergenic potential great anti-inflammatory ingredients.
PlantAction has a mission to stay true to superior quality ingredients, fostering community and local partnerships, without compromising taste.
