"Let's heal the world, one recipe at a time."
Rochelle’s love for cooking and baking began at age five as she spent hours in the kitchen with her mother. At nine years of age, Rochelle was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes and eating healthy became a way of life for her. Part of her healthy lifestyle also includes eating a gluten free diet. Realizing grocery stores are flooded with an overabundance of unhealthy processed foods, Rochelle turned to creating healthy foods at home in her kitchen.
As a young adult, Rochelle earned an Associate’s Degree in Food Service Management from Fox Valley Technical College in Appleton, WI and a Bachelor’s Degree in home economics from the University of Wisconsin-Stout. Then, after spending over ten years giving presentations and teaching classes on healthy eating for the patients and staff of St. Luke’s Hospitals, Aurora Hospitals, and Nutritional Designs Inc., Rochelle decided to begin devoting her life to developing great-tasting, healthy recipes.
To date Rochelle’s work has been featured on the pages of Reiman Publications / Trusted Media Brand’s “Taste of Home” magazine, Dawna Stone’s “The Healthy You Diet” and other cookbooks. Her list of clients includes Kraft Foods, Golden Country Foods, Scotcoast Foods Ltd. of Scotland, Integrated Marketing Systems, Wells' Enterprises / Blue Bunny ice cream, and Jolly Time Popcorn. As if this list was not impressive enough, Rochelle is also the founder of Little Roc Recipe Company and B’ssert LLC.
Rochelle’s mission is creating healthy, low-glycemic, diabetic friendly, gluten free foods for people like her that need them, but also taste good enough that anyone who wishes to make smarter food choices can enjoy them. Her mixes are completely vegan, gluten free, and contain no dairy products, tree nuts, or artificial sweeteners. To learn more about eating healthy, check out Rochelle’s blog or contact her directly.
