Aventura: Everyday She-roes, Cristie Besu, The Guilt-Free Goddess
Cristie Besu's schedule is anything but light: She's balancing being a single mother to three kids with running Eat Me Guilt Free, a protein-packed and better-for-you line of bread, brownies, snacks, and tortilla wraps that she launched out of her kitchen in 2013. The first-generation Cuban-American and native Miamian's brand began as a passion project; as a registered nurse and certified sports nutritionist, she sought to find a solution for her clients who were in search of a healthy alternative to sweets, "The chocolate brownie was born as a result of me experimenting [with] nutrition science and seeing (patients with diseases] because of high-processed foods and sugar," says Besu.
