Weusi’s journey with fitness and healthy eating habits started after college. But it was not until she participated in her first bodybuilding competition that she learned about restrictive dieting and making healthy options taste good, she said.
“As soon as I started eating better and working out I not only obviously looked better physically, but I also felt better—it motivated me so much that I wanted to share that with people,” Weusi said.
The child-friendly coffee shop specializes in healthy prepared meals but also features energy bites, sandwiches, bowls, smoothies, supplement options and more. In addition, the shop offers one-on-one appointments to help customers reach weight goals through meal planning.
“The plan here is to be very hands-on, teaching, helping people,” Weusi said. “But also [have customers] sit down with a health professional that can tell them exactly how to get to their goals and how to do it in a way that’s very convenient to them—and then we get them on to a meal plan.”
Weusi created the menu for the coffee shop and the weekly prepared meals based on “recipes that people love,” tweaking them to be healthier with a low calorie count. Some of the hearty meals include a lean sloppy Joe bowl, chicken carnitas and a sweet potato shepherd's pie.
The coffee shop has partnered with Texas State University and will soon have nutrition interns, who Weusi hopes will help her create meal plans for clients with diabetes or other specific health issues. Currently, the shop has two interns from the culinary trade program at San Marcos High School.
“My goal is to have nutritionists and health coaches who can counsel these people long term if they need it,” Weusi said.
