a little about rose
Rose (otherwise known as, Rosie) is a twenty something plant based gal, who loves to bake. She owns a bakeshop in North York called Rosie’s Eatery - 100% vegan, gluten free and naturally sweetened. Rose believes that having a treat should make you feel good and fuel your body with ingredients that will properly nourish you.
Rose wasn’t always a plant based, whole foods eater. Although she was never a crazy meat eater, she did always have a sweet tooth. Rose was found in the kitchen making a huge mess, trying to bake a batch of cookies from her mother’s cookbook when she was only 8 years old. She grew up watching both her grandmothers bake (& cook) and she always wanted to get her hands messy in a bowl! It’s no shocker that she still loves baking so much.
It was around the age of twelve when Rose started to battle with chronic stomach issues (constipation, bloating, etc) which started a long battle of laxative & pill use. It wasn’t until she was in her early twenties, when she went to see a Holistic Nutritionist for the first time. She learned how pills she was told to take for years & years by her doctors weren’t fixing the problem at all but really, only making matters worse. As Rose learned to stop relaying on laxatives and change her eating habits from processed foods to whole foods - she watched her body change and fix itself.
After seeing such a transformation in how she felt both physically and mentally, Rose knew that she no longer wanted to bake for people in a way that she didn’t believe in - she wanted to bake for them exactly what she would bake for herself. Rose decided she would start from home, which quickly moved into a commercial kitchen and eventually into a retail storefront on Avenue Road. As she approaches her third year at the shop, she has seen Rosie’s grow in many different directions and has a clear understanding of what her customers want and need.
As much as Rose loves her store, she knows she wants to do more for her customers and for herself. She is now a student at The Institute of Holistic Nutrition to become a certified Holistic Nutritionist. She is expanding her baked goods in the wholesale direction (you can catch Rosie’s at lots of coffee shops in Toronto!) and taking her business from the retail storefront right into her customers homes!
Rose can’t wait to get to know each and everyone of you on a more personal level and help to teach you how to bake and cook through a plant based, whole foods approach!
