Living barefoot in the California mountains for years can lead to myriad outcomes. Launching an uber-successful "transformational foods" company is not one you'd expect.
But that's exactly what Scott Linde did with his Santa Barbara-based company, Sun Potion.
While walking around sans-shoes, Linde developed a deep fascination with the interplay of plants and humans, and how healing these natural things could be if we humans only let them in.
"These plants want to work with humans," he said. "There is definitely an intelligence behind each of the products we offer that is bigger than the brand. Sun Potion is a vehicle for these plants and individual humans to begin a relationship together."
Along with his fiancé/business partner Nitsa Citrine, creative director for the company, Linde is out to spread the word that "superfoods" aren't always found in the produce section. When it comes to powerful foods that are truly transformational and good for you—mind and body—sometimes powders can be the most effective.
