All beet products from The Beet Lady are a labor of love.
In honor of the introduction of our new Beet Lady Bundle, we’d like to tell you a little bit about awesome mom Karen Fitzpatrick, known also as The Beet Lady. A few years ago, her son was diagnosed with a prohibitive food allergy that made cooking for him extremely complicated. After being diagnosed with Lyme Disease, Karen’s son Cullen started a very costly treatment. Cullen’s mom had to manage somehow to feed her son nutritious food that wouldn’t make him sick and also pay for his treatments.
As soon as she knew that she had to change Cullen’s diet to care for his health, Karen started researching different diets and went as far as becoming a Board Certified Health and Nutrition Consultant, earning four Certifications as a Health Coach, Wellness Consultant, Holistic Nutrition Consultant and a Board Certification by the American Association of Drugless Practitioners.
Cullen's favorite foods were the initial inspiration
Her initial motivation in changing Cullen’s diet was to replace two of his favorite foods, tomato ketchup and marinara sauce. Both of these include tomatoes, which are nightshades. Nightshades are inflammatory and are completely taken out of diets like the Autoimmune Protocol Diet and the Autoimmune Paleo Diet.
Karen tried using beets as the tomato replacement to make a ketchup and added carrots, onions and garlic for a marinara. After these two products became Cullen’s favorites, she started selling them to make money to pay for his treatments. They were an instant hit with people that had food allergies or autoimmune diseases and were following a strict diet like Cullen.
The Beet Lady products have come full circle. Created to feed Cullen and now paying for Cullen’s treatments.

A word from Karen
"All profits from the sale of The Beet Lady products are used to fund Cullen's ongoing treatments for Lyme Disease. The longer one goes without a diagnosis and treatment, the harder it is to treat Lyme and the best one can hope for is to reach a state of remission. We are still working toward remission for Cullen and treatments are very expensive. I thank you so much for helping me to help my son!"
