Mee Eat Paleo ®

ChoCoco Nut Power is Finally Here!

Say aloha to the new MeeNut on the block! ChoCoco Nut Power will begin shipping right around Jan 1, just in time for the New Year, but you can get your pre-orders in now!

Like all the other flavors, this one is also Paleo, Whole30 Approved, Non-GMO Project Verified, with NO added sugars and is handmade freshy fresh! With a hint of roasted chestnut, this is the perfect treat for the dark chocolate lover in you!

Trying to balance the bitterness of cacao is a very delicate art. I'm not gonna lie - it was really tricky getting this chocolate recipe right without adding any sugars like honey, maple or stevia, and I've had countless recipes tossed out the window. I almost gave up altogether. So glad I stuck with it. I'm committed to providing the cleanest and best tasting nut butters, hands down. I hope you all love ChoCoco Nut Power as much as I do!

I'm headed home for the holidays so this will probably be my last post for 2015. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!

Ingredients: California Almonds, Organic Coconut, Organic Chestnut, Raw Organic Cacao Powder, Organic Virgin Coconut Oil, Organic Vanilla Beans; Contains: Tree Nuts; May Contain: Pieces of nut shells and/or nut shell fragments

Refrigerate for quality.

Please note:

MeeNut Butter is housed in heavy glass jars that require extra TLC for shipping and handling.

Oil separation is natural and may occur. Product may harden/settle en route.

Coconut cream/oil will solidify at & below room temperature (about 70-75 degrees F) so depending on where it is being shipped the nut butter may harden and/or settle en route. If this is the case or if you have it refrigerated, you can easily warm it up by letting thaw out at room temperature or by keeping about 3/4 of the jar in a bowl of hot water for about 15-30 minutes (sadly this will ruin your label but oh well ). You may have to switch out the water a couple times if the butter is extremely cold and hardened. I don't own or use a microwave but if you do, a few seconds in there will work too. Once warmed up, stir and enjoy! 

CrossFit California Regionals Fri May 22 - Sun May 24, 2015

Pictured above: #tbt to my first official MeeNut event ... This May 22-24 I'll be a vendor at CrossFit Calfornia Regionals at the Del Mar Fairgrounds!! Please come find me and say aloha, sample some paleo yumminess and take some home! So grateful for the continued love and support!!

When this pic was taken, I still had a full time corporate job and I was making the MeeNut Butter at home one jar at a time in a Vitamix blender. The motor would burn out every five minutes. Needless to say it took a long time to make. I managed to make a couple hundred jars in time for the event and we sold out before the first day was even over!

Much has changed since this day. I have since quit that job and have been working on my humble little business full time since 2012. The Vitamix has been replaced with an actual commercial grinder to speed things along a little bit and I now operate out of a commercial kitchen. However, every single jar is still handcrafted fresh, start to finish!

California Regionals is my first larger-scale event and I am anxious but stoked at the same time! My business has been growing at a muuuch slower simmer than the vast majority out there, but I wanted to remain small and purposeful in the early years to build a reputation of excellence in quality and service. I firmly believe I have achieved this goal to the best of my ability. Your loyalty over these years proves it!

I couldn't have made it to this point without the help and outpouring of love of amazing family and friends. So grateful for all of you! Words do not do justice.

It would mean the world to me to have your support at Regionals! Please stop by and say aloha, sample some quadruple nut power and bring some home! I plan to make more than a couple hundred jars to bring with me this time. :)


A Tribute to My K.M. & Countdown to the New Year

A Tribute to My K.M. & Countdown to the New Year


K.M.  Short for Korean Mom. K.M.s are infamous for their D.W.I.T. (Do Whatever It Takes) approach to child-rearing in order to churn out elite GPAs, classical music prodigies, doctors, lawyers, olympic athletes, and more from their offspring. An interesting, and oftentimes scary breed of mom … but a momma nonetheless … and I love mine.


Learning to play classical piano at the ripe old age of four


Growing up, there were many moments when I resolved in my sinful little heart that this was NOT the case. These melodramas usually ended with slamming doors and high-pitched yelling from both parties. Definitely not my proudest moments ….

However, with this recent business venture, I’ve come to realize that despite these growing pains, my K.M. was instrumental in shaping who I am today and I owe much of my success to her oftentimes irrational yet loving ways. Here are 5 basic lessons I’ve learned [among hundreds of thousands] that were directly and indirectly taught via my momma’s discipline stick and example.


I was never cut out to be a doctor or nurse but my parents and teachers sure did try to convert me.


1. Never visit anyone empty-handed. As a child I remember my parents always toting a box of fruit or ricecakes whenever we were invited anywhere. I never thought much about it until as an adult I caught myself subconsciously following suit. I see now that it’s a simple expression of respect and consideration for others regardless of roles [who invited who] and social status [who’s who], even if it’s a mere box of fuji apples or asian pears. This is how I want to run my business, showing respect and concern to my customers and hopefully one day my employees. I want to consider others before myself, and I ask all of you to help keep me in check. I don’t exist without all of you!

2. Chew your food. Thoroughly. Or “kok-kok sheep-uh-muh-guh” in Korean. I still get reprimanded for this! We’re always in a rush to do this and go there so the last thing on our minds is making sure we chew our bacon thoroughly before swallowing, right? Tons of studies show the health benefits of chewing food, but what’s more important is that during the act of chewing, you actually get to taste, savor, and enjoy the very thing that will provide nourishment and strength to your body. My life is a hurricane at the moment and my “to do” list has a mind of it’s own, but I keep reminding myself to “kok-kok sheep-uh-muh-guh” this process and remember that the joy is in the journey!

3. Turn off the lights when you leave a room. (I actually just got up to turn off the light in my kitchen haha!) From washing and re-using Bounty paper towels (they really were quite durable!) to turning off the water while brushing your teeth (which I hope all of you do!), my momma would literally shadow me from room to room shutting out lights quicker than you could yell “no rep!” We didn’t have much in terms of material wealth so conservation was the name of the game. As annoying as it was playing light wars with my mom, this was one way she really drilled in the importance of stretching a dollar and making the most of what you have. This mindset has helped me build Mee Eat Paleo to where it is today and will help me in my long adventure ahead.

4. It’s not what you do that matters but howyou do it and mediocrity is not an option. My parents came to America with no formal higher education, their sole motivation being the hope of providing a better life for my brother and me. I’ve watched my momma work at an A&W fast food joint, cashier at Shop Rite, sell Cutco knives, attempt insurance sales, nanny … gosh, you name it! And now she owns and operates a small business. All vastly different but the common thread in all of it was her dedication to hard work through thick and thin. Momma worked her butt off no matter what the task. I adopted my workhorse mentality from her example and I’ll bet I can attribute my success with CrossFit to that as well. Starting your own business is no “walk in the park, Kazansky,” but I hope that I can work even half as hard as my mom did and still does and strive to provide you all with the most excellent products possible.




5. Always say “Thank you.” Repeatedly. While bowing. OK, I suppose the bowing doesn’t necessarily apply here in the U.S. but I’ve definitely learned not to be stingy in the gratitude department. I am nothing without God’s provision and the amazing support of my family, friends, and loyal fans. So although it’s already been expressed innumerably, I’ll tell you yet again, THANK YOU ALL so much from the bottom of my little paleo heart! Your support means so much to me and I am grateful beyond words! And to my dearest momma, thank you so much for everything. I hope to make you proud! I love you!



Today marks my last day at “work” and thus begins the first day of the rest of my life. I didn’t want to wait until “later” to take a stab at chasing my dreams because “later” is a luxury that isn’t guaranteed to everyone. Should I fail, I will rejoice knowing that I gave it a go and did the best I could. Should I succeed, I will rejoice knowing that it was all by God’s provision and sovereignty in my life and I want to ultimately do all things unto the glory of my Maker. So … here goes it!

Happy New Year everyone!
