Funded! This project was successfully funded on February 24.


EatMe. DateMe. WakeMe. Creating nutrient-dense, grain-free, hype-free foods. Remember, real food is perishable, Ours is.

Who We Are/What We Do:

WholeMe is the partnership of Krista Steinbach and Mary Kosir. Two smart, passionate women who realized the power that food has on their daily lives and want to make eating real, delicious food convenient and easy.

We try not to take ourselves too seriously(as you can tell by our product names), but we do take creating nutrient-dense, whole foods based snacks seriously.  All our current products are gluten-free, grain-free, paleo-friendly, and delicious.

Our Current Products:

 Here's the Deal:

We are all in.

Krista and Mary are working hard to make eating real, whole foods that are convenient and delicious easier for you. Through our own personal investment, we’ve come so far and need your help to take us to the next level.

We are currently a modest Minneapolis/St. Paul based company with aspirations to be a national player in the healthy foods industry. To play with the big boys and girls, we need to evolve our packaging for grocery store shelves and attend key tradeshow events to get in front of the buyers that pick the products that show up at your local grocery or co-op.

To do this, we need you, our COMMUNITY of believers. The ME team that will help take us to the next level.

With a fully funded kickstarter, we will be able to:

1.  Print our first run of new EatMe cereal pouches

2.  Print our second run of DateMe and WakeMe labels

3.  Attend one of the largest Natural Food Shows in the country

4.  Develop the next few products we have in the hopper with tentative launches later this year.

What's in it for You?

Well for starters, you get the warm fuzzy feeling from supporting two driven, passionate women. We’ve also incorporated fun into our plan and (we hope) created rewards that reflect that. 

The most exciting of all our rewards(well, we think) is exclusive access to our newest product, NewMe!  

What is NewMe you ask?

NewMe is not a static item, but a placeholder for products WholeMe is testing, limited edition re-releases of old favorites, or fun seasonal flavor items. Future NewMe products will be available exclusively online.  But this one is available only to Kickstarter backers.

We encourage you to contribute and feel free to check us out at if you have further questions about us or our product line.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

In starting any new business, there are lots of risks involved. For us, that translates into making sure our sales can support our packaging needs and upgrades, as well as the publicity needed to generate widespread enthusiasm for our great products. We know we’ve got something great here. We need this Kickstarter to be successful to allow us to literally kickstart the next phase of our business development, which is new packaging and the continued development of our network of supporters to build our brand across the US.
