Lots of people ask us – “How did you get started?”

Great Bear Paleo Bites are from a Crossfitter for Crossfitters following the Paleo diet – this started back in 2008 when Tracy, our founder and creator, began Crossfitting in Perth, Western Australia. There she learned more about how to support her training goals with improved nutrition (which is a constantly awesome learning journey….)

Taught to bake by her Mom and Grandmothers as part of family time, Tracy has been baking since the age of 3. Former geologist turned sustainability specialist, Tracy Lydiatt holds a Masters degree in Strategic Leadership Towards Sustainability (Sweden). She is an award-winning sustainability advisor, educator and author passionate about sustainability empowerment and change.


Tracy has watched the merging of allergen free diets with the Paleo way of eating over the last five years. In late 2012, she chose to shift from being a home-based baker, supplying her peeps at her Crossfit gym, to a larger endeavor able to serve more people seeking to eat cleanly. Since then, we have grown, reformulated and expanded our product offerings – all intended to support clean eating and living.


We are really proud to be grain free, vegan and free of wheat-soy-dairy and nuts! (dairy = no butter/no eggs). We hold a gluten-free certification.
