JUST ONE COELIAC GIRL AND ONE EXPERIMENTER BOY
We are just one coeliac girl (Amy) and one experimenter boy (Jeff), sharing our passion for food and love for the world. Using our hard-earned savings, experience and sheer will, we have a dream to revolutionise the landscape of the food industry forever, and provide you with real, honest food that is free from sugars, grains and poor-quality fats.
Real food made from scratch has always been part of our lives (blame Amy as she was diagnosed Coeliac over 25 years ago!). But things really changed when the experimenter boy removed all sugars, grains and harmful fats from his diet. His ‘hanger’ (hunger/anger) disappeared and we saw amazing improvements in health and general wellbeing – it was nothing short of a miracle!
After lot’s of research we were shocked to discover the vast array of everyday foods that contained hidden sugars, poor quality fats and grains. We knew we could do better than what was currently on offer and that’s when the idea for Hunter & Gather was born.
BUT WHY THE NAME HUNTER & GATHER?
It’s not only a nod to the Paleo (ancestral way of eating) values that first kick-started our very own real food lifestyle, but it also links closely to our own ancestry. The coeliac girl comes from a family tree with the surname Hunt and the experimenter boy was from a line of Gathergoods. They say some things are just meant to be…
WHO IS THE COELIAC GIRL?
Amy is the coealiac girl who was diagnosed at the tender age of 18 months after a 6 month food trial and multiple hospital visits. The nurse in the hospital consoled her mother who wondered what a horrendous life lay ahead.. little did they know it would be a blessing in disguise and Amy is thankful everyday for living a life of Real Food and learning how to cook from scratch an array of tasty meals.
Amy is a gymaphobe (not a gym bunny) but loves to exercise and move through walking, horse riding and playing with her cats. She is often seen grabbing a piggy back from Jeff, riding her horse Hippo or enjoying the countryside.
Amy’s favourite Hunter & Gather product is the Extra Virgin Avocado Oil as she uses this not just for cooking but for beauty too (it is a great facial moisturiser and hair serum). Her perfect dinner would be cauliflower risotto with king prawns, finished off with avocado oil and garlic.
WHO IS THE EXPERIMENTER BOY?
Jeff is the Experimenter Boy and he has a passion for trying out new ideas and inventions. He challenges convention and questions the norm – which is why Hunter & Gather pushes the boundaries in all that we do.
Jeff saw a huge change in his personal wellbeing when he adopted the principles of eating “Real Food”, sleeping well, moving his body and switching off from social media of an evening.
Jeff enjoys the gym and will often be found trying out playful moves, such as the bunny hop, plank tennis and fireman carrying Amy. He shares Amy’s passion for the outdoors and enjoys nothing more than a cross country run or an afternoon walk.
Jeff’s favourite Hunter & Gather product is the Avocado Oil Mayonnaise as it really pushes the boundaries of clean eating possibilities and tastes amazing! His perfect dinner would be a nice piece of perfectly cooked rare steak with a dollop of Avocado Oil Mayonnaise.
