Coconut Girl cookie sandwiches is the first paleo cookie sandwich on the market sweetened with natural sugars. It was created out of obsession with creating healthy alternatives to my favorite snack foods.
Franchesca Yamsuan, born in the Philippines moved to southern California when she was young. She is a graduate in culinary sciences. In a random experiment, she decided to put her dates shakes combination of dates and coconut smoothies, into her ice cream maker and the result was a Paleo ice cream.
The cookie texture with creamy almond butter is soft and chewy which complements the rich coconut cream. These delectable sandwiches are grain-free, and paleo.

Entrepreneurs: Lindsay McCormick and Asher Hunt
Bite Toothpaste Bits was founded by Lindsay McCormick and Asher Hunt, who wanted to get rid of the environment of plastic toothpaste tubes. The idea that effective oral care didn’t need to come at the expense of our health and the environment.
And the solution came – chemical-laden commercial toothpaste by using dry and sustainably-sourced ingredients, pressed into tablets made to clean and protect teeth.
Most toothpastes contain Silica (Silicon Dioxide), and it’s full of chemicals, fillers and unnecessary ingredients. Silica is abrasive. Whitening teeth with abrasion provides a short-term benefit but may create enamel loss over the long term.
