Maura Knowles lay on the operating table, awake. A routine procedure that should have taken a few minutes had turned into a life-threatening operation. She was only 20. Everything that could have gone wrong in hospital, did—pancreatitis, infections, misdiagnoses, you name it. She survived not one near death experience, but two! Her fighting Irish spirit and the support of her family pulled her through. Twenty years on, she’s turning these dramas into a musical comedy “Insult to Injury.”
She’s not the only strong survivor in her family. Her father survived a quadruple by-pass. He was put on an incredibly restrictive diet—no sugar, no salt, no treats. Knowing from experience how crappy it feels to be without any kind of comfort food, Maura set out to create something healthy and delicious that her father could enjoy. MacnMo’s Morselicious Treats were born. Gluten-free, sugar-free, GMO-free, soy-free, preservative-free, salt-free and delicious, these morsels can now be found in over 30 stores nationwide.
Maura is also an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, helping people change the way they eat—but it’s not about restriction, it’s about having real, tasty, satisfying food. Maura advocates eating clean and green 85% of the time, and giving yourself 15% wiggle room. Her 21-day detox incorporates exercise, social activities, and the things you love—yes, even wine.
