NP: Tell us a little about yourself.
Rayanne: My name is Rayanne Collins and I was born and raised in Michigan. I currently reside in North Carolina and absolutely love the beach! I am a full-time Account Manager, with an intense passion for bodybuilding. Fitness has always been a way of life for me. Growing up, I was in gymnastics and played soccer for 9 years. I never had any major health issues until a year ago when I was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease. Since then, I've had to dive head first into learning about my body and the proper nutrition I need. I am not a huge fan of taking medicine (even though I still have to), and believe that diet is the best way to manage my symptoms. That philosophy is what led me to Nutty Peanut's line of products.
NP: Why do you choose The Nutty Peanut?
Rayanne: As a competitive bodybuilder I have to be careful about the kinds of food I select as a part of my meal plan to maintain my physique. With quality of food being a high priority of mine, The Nutty Peanut satisfies my cravings for full flavor while fitting the needs of my diet. It is also one of the very few peanut butters that does not upset my stomach. It’s the number one meal that I look forward to enjoying and I absolutely love it on rice cakes! It has brought much joy to my life, and I am obsessed with the variety of flavors that are offered. With its antioxidants, MCT Oil, and Golden Flax Seed ingredients, it not only is easy on my digestive system, but supports my nutritional needs. It is truly a great product, and one I will continue to use forever.
NP: Tell us about some of your goals and achievements.
Rayanne: I first competed in the NPC (National Physique Committee) 2 years ago and fell in love with the process, especially the discipline I learned and have applied to every aspect of my life. I am pursuing my second competition this year in hopes of making it on the National stage. My number one goal is to turn pro in this sport, and to help people along the way. It is greatly important to me to share all of the things I have learned with other people that may have the same challenges as I have. I want to encourage others to follow their dreams and to never give up!
NP: Where can people follow you?
