Being around for her kids was the inspiration for Ilana Eck to adopt healthier eating habits and develop the recipes to support that goal. We’re not talking about being around the kitchen. We’re talking being around, as in being alive.
Ilana’s mother, Renee, died as a result of breast cancer when Ilana was only 9 years old. Baking with her mom’s bowls, spoons, and muffin tins connected young Ilana to her mom’s memory. Fast forward to adulthood, when Ilana became a mother herself. Pressed for time, energy, and the use of both hands (holding babies makes all those scarce commodities!), Ilana developed the chocolate and chia OatMEAL cup. She loved it so much, she put it on a moms’ group Facebook page, and had 250 orders in no time.
Stylish Spoon started as a recipe blog but morphed into an actual food company when Ilana saw the potential evidenced by the incredible reception of her OatMeal cup. Today, the company has expanded its product line to include paleo carrot muffins made from nuts, vegan/gluten-free hamantashen, and raw cookie dough bites. All Stylish Spoon products are 100% gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free, and vegan. And delicious!
Currently, Stylish Spoon’s products are sold exclusively online.
