No added sugars, artificial ingredients, or fake proteins, “just straight-up real foods,” Feucht said when describing her online paleo foods purveyor, Barefoot Provisions. “We’re a small, sort of a mom-and-pop ecommerce company competing against the big retailers.”
Selling everything from gluten-free granola, to chocolate, to MCT (medium-chain triglycerides) oil, to foods to complete your Whole30 diet, Barefoot Provisions is not for the faint of heart (or stomach).
“Our demographic is the real hardcore paleo people,” Feucht noted. “They don’t want the treat stuff, they just want the food that’s real.” Barefoot Provisions has recently had a lot of sales in the Keto area, selling coconut-based products and unsweetened jerky. “I like the idea that you can sell whole foods to people and they’re willing to spend a little bit extra to get the real ingredients,” Feucht said.
