About Us

Learn more about our company and our products.

For over twenty years, I have been on a journey towards health and happiness… 

Let me tell you, there have been some twists and turns along the way. I have embraced a number of food philosophies. From vegetarian/vegan to The Westin A. Price Foundation, then finally landing on the Primal/Paleo diet in November of 2011. If you want to read up on the what’s, why’s, and how’s of Primal/Paleo diet, check out the website and person that was my inspiration www.marksdailyapple.com. If you want to get your hands on some fantastic, healthy, paleo diet, grain-free products, welcome to Primal Island.

I have a passion for food, nutrition and health. After moving to Seattle in my 20’s I immersed myself in a local specialty foods business while attending college. This led to 20+ years of striving to cook healthy organic food for myself and my family. Eliminating grains from my diet made such an impact on my health, both mental and physical; I have brought the family along with me on the journey. At first kicking and screaming and now fairly compliant!

After many requests to buy the granola we were making in our home kitchen I have decide to “go for it” and make it available to as many people as possible. My goal is to make eating a grain free and organic paleo diet like our ancestors did, easy in the modern world. Keep your eyes out for more products which will be available soon!
