Our Story

Hi, I’m Lexi. My Dad & I created Avoca’Do to encourage you to stop thinking about being healthy, but to actually start DO-ing it!

We both have struggled with diet related health issues. It helped us truly understand the importance of REAL food to heal and feel our best. We believe being healthy doesn’t have to mean eliminating all the fun indulgences in your life! Eating healthy can be delicious AND nutritious.

I have always been drawn to food and cooking. I was even on the Rachael Ray Show when I was nine years old! However, as a teen, I developed body image and diet issues while my father struggled with Type II Diabetes. This was a wake up call for us to take action and DO something. We began to focus on thinking, eating, living, and DO-ing everything a little bit healthier from then on.
It really stuck with me how even the smallest changes towards healthy living can improve all areas of your life. My interest continued so I studied Public Health. After graduation, I served with FoodCorps teaching kids in school about nutrition, cooking and gardening so they can grow up healthy. Soon after, I became an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach while working at the Stonewall Kitchen Cooking School. Through these experiences it reinforced my passion for food, cooking and ways to live healthier.
Avoca’Do all began one weekend when I was home and decided to whip up one of my new favorite recipes I had been creating, a chocolate avocado based pudding. I decided to make it and not tell my Dad what the “secret” and MAIN ingredient was. Let’s just say proof was in the pudding! My Dad and family were SO surprised how smooth, creamy and chocolatey this avocado pudding was, and they couldn’t stop eating it…neither could I! We wanted to share this new and improved healthy pudding alternative. We took the leap and started our business, Avoca’Do!
With Avoca’Do I hope to share with others that healthy living can be fun, simple and not about perfection. I like to simplify, by eating mostly plants, tons of avocados in various forms 🙂 and to move my body everyday. In the end, I believe true health comes from the inside out, it’s really all about how you feel.

With Love & Avoca’Do,
Lexi
