I love having conversations with people who create things and bring about change, so I’m especially happy to share my interview with Cara Nicoletti! Cara is the Founder & CEO of Seemore Meats & Veggies, a women-owned meat company that makes sausages with fresh veggies and humanely raised meat.


Cara is a fourth generation butcher, winner of The Food Network’s Chopped, television host of VICE Munchies’ The Hangover Show and Open Fire, and author of literary cookbook, Voracious. She grew up working at her family’s butcher shop in Boston, and took up the family trade working in top restaurants and butcher shops around New York. After a decade in the field, Cara grew dismayed at the environmental impacts of meat-eating and began to experiment with her unique veggie-forward sausages, which quickly gained traction and sparked the idea for Seemore Meats & Veggies. Since the brand’s launch in February 2020, Seemore Meats & Veggies’ sausages have appeared on The Today Show and Access Hollywood, and have been featured in publications such as Bon Appetit, Food & Wine, Vogue, and RealSimple.


There are so many awesome takeaways from my conversation with Cara, but here are some which stand out:

  • When launching a brand – especially if you’re doing so during a pandemic as Cara did – make sure you’re working with people and investors you enjoy interacting with every day;
  • Breaking into a male-dominated industry isn’t easy, but when you’re committed to seeing your product succeed, there’s nothing you cannot achieve;
  • When it comes to self-care, finding an activity that allows for total distraction can be a game changer;
  • Healthy living is about not feeling guilty about something that makes you feel good, and above all, doing what your body and brain are asking you for.
