Lya & Taylor
Bone Deep & Harmony was founded by Lya Mojica and Taylor Chen, two mothers living in New York City. Lya and Taylor each spent several years studying yoga, nutrition, and Traditional Chinese Medicine prior to creating BD&H. Their respective paths led each of them to experiment with many trendy and plant-based diets. They noticed that those diets usually focused on elimination of ingredients. While removing foods from their diets, they found themselves pouring money into supplements to compensate for all that was missing from their food - as well as to address inconsistent energy levels, anxiety, and other imbalances.
Under the guidance of acupuncturist Chris Chen, Lya and Taylor both began incorporating bone broth and other traditional whole foods into their diets, and quickly noticed improvements. Seasonal allergies were relieved, hormonal imbalances regulated, chronic anxiety lessened, and years later, broth continued to fortify them while being nursing mothers.
While keeping their own freezers stocked, Lya and Taylor realized that the process of making broth regularly would be a challenge for most New Yorkers - in a city where kitchens are pint-sized and people spend little time at home. Thus began the evolution of a company that could produce broth for a growing group of urban health and food enthusiasts.
The company's commitment to ingredients and process has distinguished BD&H, and has paid off. Lya and Taylor's 'mom & mom' shop has become a unique healing and culinary resource that continues to blossom.
