Let me introduce myself to you, I am Konstanze Zeller, the founder and creator of COCORAU. As a native of Austria, I love sweets and have a passion for cooking. I also love clowns and I am a Make-up artist in the fashion world.
I want to share my story with you and I promise..it is delicious!
The foundation and roots of COCORAU is made of what I’m personally attracted and my sense of being: an abundance of health, passion for living, and transforming the ordinary into the extraordinary.
My personal journey is one of optimum well being, incorporating beauty with balance. I believe beauty starts from within and is reflected by what and how we eat; what we put into the instruments we play. I learned from own experience and created a lifestyle involving world travel, exotic meals, and new discoveries of resources – for the purpose of maintaining a healthy living regime through which I prosper and remain conscious as I continue to expand in spirit and being. My health is my foundation and inspiration.
This story will entice you into entering a world of delights that I created.
My story of discovering health began with my need for it. I was out of balance and my being spoke to me. My physical body was supposed to be my vehicle for awareness but it became clouded and blocked. That challenged me to do something.
I was fortunate to meet Dr Linda Lancaster who put me on a regime of meals that revealed the natural nutrients of organic foods. That was a new start for me. I was so delighted with my new way of being, I had to share it.
This made me decide to create a product rich in nutrients and beautiful to see. They are also delicious and could travel with you anywhere.
Therefore I began with four organic Power Bites then enhanced my product line with Adaptogenic Elixir Mixes that will start your day anytime at anyplace. I was thrilled to find for myself a means to create and give back to the world; a treasure of conscious products provided by nature’s richest resources.
Now I introduce to you my line of Raw Power Bites & Elixirs.
Here is to your health! It is your greatest treasure.
While living in my small East Village apartment in New York, I used my kitchen to turn nature’s treasures into an alchemy of raw organic cocoa power bites.
This is my first treat. It has lavender and is christened with the Sanskrit word for breath: so hum. My ingredients are organic, raw and simple, and as a result is something that is beautiful inside and out. As a make-up artist who paints faces, I wanted my So Hum (Lavender) bite to not only be attractive in form and be delicious. I actually wanted this to also be a healthy addition to your day. A snack, a treat and a gift – starting with you.
The recipe has its base in raw organic cocoa. I use the essence of organic lavender to calm, soothe and beautify your soul. Raw almonds, pistachios, and raw organic honey are also included – a melody of magic.
In a fashion studio, I sample my first creation among models and photographers. It was love at first bite. So Hum was an immediate success.
I love bringing people together and in turn people come together for me. This is the alchemy of karma, so to speak. The art director on the fashion shoot connected me with her husband, a manager for a major health food chain, to whom I introduced my first bites.
