A Business Inspired By A Cancer Journey
We are always inspired by others making a difference. We always like to support small businesses, especially those founded by someone on a cancer joruney to help others after their own diagnosis or treatment.
Meet Scott and Lori Levine, Founders of Scott’s Protein Balls.
Founded in 2020, our protein balls were created by Co-Founder and CFO Scott Levine for his wife Lori Levine who, after a battle with breast cancer, was looking for a clean, soy-free, low sugar snack she could take on the go instead of the protein bars she was accustomed to eating. Lori, CEO, wanted a clean and healthy alternative that didn’t sacrifice taste, so she decided to launch Scott's Protein Balls as a business. It started as a labor of love but became a business by accident due to strong demand for healthier snacks.
My Cancer Family: Since Lori was diagnosed, why was it important to have a clean, plant-based diet?
Scott and Lori: Certain ingredients can almost act as “fuel” for unhealthy cells. Minimizing these ingredients or finding satisfying replacements is an important step to live a healthy lifestyle. Soy, sugar and gluten should be avoided. Our newest flavor (Peanut Butter Cup) is making its debut next weekend at the Fancy Food Show in New York City and includes even more immune-boosting ingredients, including pea protein, broccoli seed powder and chia powder.
