Designed for Doers
In 2013, I found myself in a personal wellness rut. Like so many of us, I’d been living a life where taking care of myself wasn’t a priority. Instead, I’d been living as an expat overseas and exploring the globe fast and furiously. It wasn’t all denial; some things I wasn’t yet aware of. To start, I didn’t know how greatly the environment impacted issues with my body chemistry.
I was tired, stressed, and struggling with infertility. That’s when I embarked on a quest to fix my health. In less than 18 months, I underwent a complete transformation. I didn’t do this with a magic pill or surgery. Rather, I relied on exploration, research, and good old determination. Most of my changes were made with the basics in mind: I changed my diet, my lifestyle, and my circumstances.
I became pregnant without intervention and had a beautiful baby. My body was strong and I felt better than I ever had. But it wasn’t without strife: my on-the-go lifestyle was never conducive to healthy eating – there’s a reason that fast food is popular for those of us living life in the fast lane.
Despite shelves full of “choices,” most of the convenience foods contained unrecognizable ingredients and additives. Even when they filled me up, they also filled me with things I didn’t want and certainly didn’t need.
As an entrepreneur, my mind went straight to solving this problem. I began researching superfood ingredients and experimenting in my kitchen, something I’ve done since my grandmother first welcomed me into hers when I was a child. My recipes were born from this research: each unique flavor combination arose not only from what tasted great together, but also from what went together naturally.
I focused on combining ingredients that had similar beneficial properties, an idea other bar makers had never explored. After an entire summer of testing combinations with family and friends, I took my creations to the mouths of the masses.
Blended. Original. Superfood. Snacks.
In 2015, The B.O.S.S. Food Company® was born. We began in a tiny, shared commercial kitchen in the historic Heights neighborhood of Houston, TX. With bowls and measuring cups and several pinches of passion, my team and I created five different types of bars.
In Houston, people know food – people love food! They also have a passion for bringing ideas to life and to help others persist in the face of adversity. Drawing on the energy of the city, we expanded to farmers’ markets and local retailers.
As we hoped, B.O.S.S. bars™ fit seamlessly into busy lifestyles, as easily as iPhones and Uber. They filled up our customers and fueled their days. And the bars tasted good! Our secret is simple. Literally, that’s the answer “simple.” Simple ingredients for extraordinary taste.
Today we are excited to be making B.O.S.S. bars™ from our own facility in Northwest Houston, as a trusted alternative to other bars and snacks. If you need to MOVE®, THINK®, SMILE®, RESTORE®, and/or DAZZLE™, we are here to help your hunger. We are here to help you soar.

Every ingredient in our bars is a SUPERFOOD. Each B.O.S.S. Bar™ is thoughtfully crafted with only premium, raw ingredients, and we never add any refined sugar, wheat, soy or preservatives. Our bars are certified gluten-free by the Celiac Support Association, which has the strictest standard of <5ppm gluten. We are also certified Paleo by The Paleo Foundation, which ensures that our ingredients are free from detrimental additives and that our products can be trusted by those following the Paleo diet.
Clean eating, food transparency, and delicious taste are cornerstones of our philosophy on eating and snacking. Rest assured that when you reach for a B.O.S.S. Bar™, you are making a satisfying choice. Reach for us…and then reach for the sky.
Too many packaged food wrappers fill our landfills. That’s why we choose to package our bars in 100% compostable pouches. This packaging helps the environment in two ways. First, it is created from bio-based (renewable, plant-based) elements. Second, when disposed of correctly, the wrappers return as a resource to the planet in the form of compost. This nurtures plants, trees, and future generations.
You can dispose of your B.O.S.S. Bar™ wrapper like you would any organic waste. If you have a green disposal option such as home/industrial compost, you can place it there. Otherwise it can go into your regular garbage. The time by which the package will “convert” to compost depends on the method and conditions by which composting occurs. In an industrial composter, where conditions are well controlled, it could take up to 180 days.
Following our founder’s enlightenment towards clean eating and clean living, The B.O.S.S. Food Company® supports causes that work to remove harmful substances from our food and environment by donating 1% of our profits annually to carefully selected charitable organizations.
When you buy from us, you feel good about your choices. Then you eat our bars and you feel even better.
