Our Story



Have you ever grabbed a snack, looked at the label and wondered "What am I eating? "What IS that ingredient?"

Sattva Vida solves this mystery by going back to the basics- back to pure, natural ingredients that taste great and are great for you.  We believe simple is better, and less is more.  

Sattva Vida translates to Pure Life in Sanskrit and Spanish. Sattvic foods are those that are pure, essential, natural, energy-containing, and clean. A Sattvic Diet is sometimes referred to as a Yogic Diet. It helps maintain harmony and balance in one's body and mind.

Our snacks are gluten-free, vegan, and yummy!  They don't contain oats, grains, flour, added sugars, or anything artificial. In fact, we make our own date paste from scratch. 

The dates make them sweet and supply fiber, while the nuts and seeds pack them with protein and nutrients.

Our Founder: Karen Lauterstein

After 20 years in Corporate America, I left the 9-5 in 2014 to follow my passions and entrepreneurial drive. I went to Sivananda Ashram to get certified as a yoga teacher - a long- time dream.  At the Ashram I had the sincere joy of eating clean, home cooked, simple vegetarian food all month long, and was inspired to launch Sattva Vida. 

I love fresh, wholesome food with simple, healthy ingredients. So many people in today’s busy world grab processed snacks or sugar-filled energy bars that contain complex ingredients with names no one can pronounce. Many protein bars are simply glorified candy bars.  

I launched Sattva Vida to help people get back to eating and enjoying simple, fresh food. Sattva Vida crafts small-batch snacks that are great for the body, soul and taste buds. Join me down this healthy, delicious new path!
