Williams and Weston began Mama Nature's, a mobile-delivery salad, smoothie and juice bar, in November 2016 as a way to help ignite a healthy-eating movement.
The business offers a wide variety of juice and smoothie combinations such as strawberry ginger limeade, carrot orange, chocolate and beet juices, and also recipes that meet customers' needs.
Williams says the business has juices and waters designed to detox the body while fighting fatigue and energy depletion; flushes for assistance with blockages and colon cleansing; combinations to help improve libido; and multi-day cleansers that help the body absorb nutrients faster and more efficiently.
Mama Nature's also has meal prep and planning services. For that, customers can choose from one or two meals a day over the course of five days. Williams says Mama Nature's pushes vegetarian meals, so the meal plans often includes food such as salads, and all of the plans include fruit-infused waters. The business also has products such as overnight oats, which are a blend of oatmeal made with almond or coconut milk, fresh fruit toppings and add-ins such as peanut butter, and other vegetarian and vegan options.
Weston and Williams also go out into the community to help educate people, especially young people, on the importance of eating healthy and ways to make better choices. They have spoken at churches, community centers and more around the area.
"We ... try to reach the youth by exposing them to a wider variety of fruits and vegetables. We teach them how to prepare healthy meals themselves and ways to fuel the body with proper nutrients," Williams says.
They provide tips on how to start and maintain a new diet, they teach about the dangers of processed foods, and also about natural ways to fight the common health issues in the communities they service, including diabetes and high cholesterol.
Williams says she was surprised with the amount of support they' have received since beginning the business.
"We had been told that people in Mississippi wouldn't be interested, and it would be hard to find a clientele," Williams says. "Sharing our personal testimony of how this lifestyle change improved has really won people over."
Williams and Weston plan to open a storefront at 5054 N. State St. in summer 2017.
