Domenique's founding Story
"That's fine, but make it way better," my prof said to me when I pitched him my idea to make healthy waffles for a Food Engineering project. "Find out what people want, what people are missing.
And it better be delicious."
Naturally, I decided to meet my own needs first ;) I'm a snacker I need something in my system at all times to keep me going. So these waffles had to be both snackable and filling. I used healthy fats, fibre, and protein at the foundation of every recipe to provide lasting energy. That led me to prioritize whole foods too.
Next, being a student, I was no stranger to pre-packaged snacks. The problem was, the delicious carby snacks, like breakfast cookies, barely made a dent in my stomach. And I couldn't keep pretending that protein bars didn't taste like chalk. I made it my mission to make my waffles the textbook definition of the opposite of chalk. Whatever that means.
Deliciously nourishing. That's what The Happy Era is all about. No matter who you are or what you do, we're here to empower you.
