Aloha all! It’s the moment you’ve all been waiting for! … PUMPKIN TIME!
First, I want to fill you in on some important updates:
1. MAHALO AGAIN FOR YOUR VOTES! Because all of you helped me acquire a minimum of 250 votes before the deadline, I have moved onto the next step of the selection process for the Chase Mission Main Street Grant! They will announce 12 winners of the small business grant in January so please keep me in your prayers until then! (https://www.missionmainstreetgrants.com/business/detail/41278)
I thank you in advance for giving me a chance at this opportunity to finally build my own facility which would allow me to make more nut butter more quickly to lessen lead time, develop more yummy flavors (Paleo Dark Chocolate MeeNut® Butter and Paleo Espresso MeeNut® Butter!!!), create local jobs, and establish a bigger platform for charity & missions work! Whatever the outcome, I am so grateful for your continued support and I hope to be able to keep providing the best quality product out there!
2. LOCAL, ORGANIC, WHOLE30® APPROVED! I’ve been hard at work trying to source as much as my ingredients as possible from local organic growers. I’ve even subbed out pure vanilla extract for organic vanilla beans to be 100% Whole30 compliant. (FYI vanilla extract is NOT Whole30 compliant!) And of course, NO ADDED SUGARS. EVER. Soon MeeNut® Butter will be the first paleo nut butter to be officially Whole30® Approved! Please note that my ingredients list is now as follows:
INGREDIENTS: California Almonds, California Organic Walnuts, Pecans, Macadamia Nuts; Contains 2% or less of: Organic Golden Flax Seeds, Organic Sunflower Seeds, Organic Virgin Coconut Oil, Sonoma Sea Salt, Organic Vanilla Beans;
CONTAINS: Tree Nuts. Refrigerate for quality.
3. OFFICIALLY TRADEMARKED! I finally own the registered trademarks for Mee Eat Paleo® and MeeNut®! Mahalo to my friend Hider for getting me through the ENTIRE process!
4. NEW AND IMPROVED LABELS BY GRAPHIC VI! I must give mad props to my designer Ben Britten of Graphic VI who is the mastermind behind ALL my logos and label artwork! Have you noticed the cool new labels?! Check out some of his work here and hit him up for your graphic design needs!
5. IT’S FINALLY PUMPKIN TIME! Mahalo for your patience! Paleo PumpkinSpice MeeNut® Butter is back for a limited time while supplies last so get some before it runs out! You can order here. In honor of Black Friday please use discount code blackfriday and enjoy 10% off on orders for today only!

P.S. My mixer broke while making the first batch so I couldn’t make as much as I wanted on this first run. I will keep making a run every week until my ingredients stash runs out. Even if I am sold out on a given week I won’t be “sold out” until I make the official announcement. So, until then, enjoy!
Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I had such a sweet time with great friends, old and new. Mahalo to you all for everything! I truly appreciate the continued love and support! So so so thankful for family, friends, health, second chances, freedom and the Cross. Colossians 1:13-29. Shaka love for life!
