About Mel

How It All Began...

On August 23, 2010, Mel was diagnosed with Sarcoid; an auto immune disease that affects the organs of a person’s body. Poor eating habits worsened her condition.  She later fell into a depression and started gaining weight. 

During an annual physical appointment her doctor asked “if I wanted to live or die?”  So in January 2011, Mel decided to do the Daniel Fast with Sisters in Christ. After adopting a vegan, pescatarian, and lastly vegetarian, God changed her mindset about food and she hasn’t looked back.

Starting Mel’s Protein Bites is her way of helping others back to health…one bite at a time.
