Holly MorelloHERO family,

I’m extremely honored to be part of this amazing team at HERO. As a nutritional therapist and the mother of 3 sons, I am incredibly passionate about youth nutrition, especially the proper fueling of young athletes.

I happened upon HERO when at a wrestling tournament, my youngest son received a sample along with a product information card. Upon tasting the sample and loving it, he scanned the information card for an ingredients list, and promptly brought it to my attention, exclaiming that it tasted really good and it looked healthy too.

When I read the list of real food ingredients on the Fuel information card, I was surprised and pleased. It’s nearly impossible to find a packaged product for youth athletes that is truly natural, and for my son - gluten free. Holly Morello

As a parent, I know we will do anything to help our children succeed - we put them in clubs, get them tutors, buy them the best sports gear, send them to camps, etc. My vision with HERO is that together we will educate and inspire you to also become passionate about nourishing and fueling your children with the foundational building blocks necessary to support a healthy body and brain – real whole food.

My journey all started when my middle son wanted to lose weight for his senior year of wrestling and I was asked to help him with a nutrition plan to safely do so. My plan for him included all natural foods, which were what my great grandmother would have recognized as real food. We mostly eliminated all highly refined foods including refined grains, sugar, trans-fats, food colorings, and man-made chemicals. My youngest son, who had just starting wrestling, asked to join in - so it became a family plan.

Our middle son’s end goal was to win regionals, and he did – he was the regional champion.

Inspired by my family’s transformations and fueled with passion, I went back to school to study nutrition and earned my Nutritional Therapy Practitioner certification from the Nutritional Therapy Association.

I currently practice nutritional therapy, in-person and world-wide via Skype, through Nourishing Excellence Nutritional Therapy (www.nourishingexcellence.com). Additionally I am on staff with nutritionist and New York Times best selling author, Diane Sanfilippo as the Content & Community Development Lead for www.DianeSanfilippo.com and www.21daysugardetox.com.

I'm looking forward to getting to know many of you and continuing the conversation!
