Earnestness is our intent and not a person, although when we make mistakes here we wish we had someone named Earnest to blame instead.
With over 20 years creating foods for other brands, we founded Earnest Eats on a very personal dream that things can be better. The healthfulness of our food, how we source ingredients, and how we give back is our earnest purpose. You’ll see this in our superfood hot cereals, which we crafted over 3 years of development in my home kitchen, inspired by porridges we enjoyed in Asia, Europe and the Americas, until it was the ultimate oatmeal we’d ever seen. And all of our foods give back to the International Rescue committee, helping families from harm to home here in the U.S. and around the world.
With a dedicated, passionate team based in Solana Beach, California, everyone here is invested in consciously creating holistic, healthy, delicious foods for your family and ours. We invite you to enjoy them.

From the moment you open the package to your very last bite, you can see, smell and taste that Earnest Eats foods are different. What makes them different?
We put only Good In our foods because we believe that foods should be fully transparent, unadulterated and whole. Rather than add flavors and enhancers to our foods we let the native flavors of natural ingredients sing their own greatness. And, because we know our bodies need real deal nourishment from powerful whole food ingredients, we’ve consciously made our foods with next-level ingredients. You’ll find cool stuff like our supergrain blend (quinoa + oats + amaranth), nutrient rich coffee fruit & detox support herbs. Plus, our foods are all free from wheat, soy, dairy as well.
The concept of earnestness goes beyond what we put in our foods. Being earnest means acting with purpose and sincere intent. That’s why we are so committed to putting Good Out in the world, too.
Every time you buy an Earnest Eats product, we donate $0.05 to the International Rescue Committee, helping refugees from harm to home around the world to here in the U.S. And, we are committed to sourcing clean, Non-GMO and Organic ingredients as well as seeking ingredients that can have a positive impact on farmers and communities like the Coffee Fruit we use in our Energized Hot Cereals.
Our long-time partnership with the IRC has allowed us to help in their efforts to help millions of displaced refugees. While we are a very small part of this effort, what has most moved us here at Earnest Eats is having the very good fortune of meeting some of these refugees personally, and learning first-hand about their stories and path to a better life. $0.05 of every Earnest Eats product sold is donated to the IRC. We invite you to look for the IRC logo on Earnest Eats packaging and learn more about their great efforts and the stories of some of these refugees on our social media and at www.rescue.org.

Coffee beans are actually the seed found inside the antioxidant-rich coffee fruit. This beautiful red fruit is discarded all over the world where coffee is harvested – polluting rivers, streams and land.
By using this superfood in our hot cereals, we are generating a new revenue source for coffee farmers and helping clean up the planet, while powering you up with a natural caffeine & antioxidant boost.
We believe the way we grow, source, produce and consume food has the power to improve the well being of people and planet. We have a responsibility to create change. Here’s what we’re doing:
All of our products always have been and always will be vegan. Eating more plant-based food and fewer meat products will have the single biggest impact on the environment.
All of our products are made in the US and in every step in our process we make a conscious effort to reduce fuel consumption and waste.
We believe in clean, sustainable sourced ingredients which is why we are working towards Non-GMO Project Verification across our line as well as launching our newest products with organic certification.
We work to discover and source ingredients that can help create positive change – fair business, environmental and nutritional – such as with our coffefruit, dragonfruit and artichoke ingredients.
We believe when you live earnestly – putting good in your body and good out into the world, you feel Good Vibes reflected back. We’re sending you a little bit of sunshine through our superfoods to you and your family, from our team here in Solana Beach, California.
