Is there such a thing as bakery products that are healthy and also taste great? Now there is. That’s the challenge I took on with my new range of muffins and VEGAN energy cookies. Yet again, I was frustrated with the options available on the market. Why is it so hard to find cookies and muffins that are as wholesome as there are delicious? Why are we always faced with a daunting display of trans fats and empty calories?
I had this strong inner voice telling me to change things in the food world.
If my books are selling like hot cakes, it’s probably because my recipes meet certain needs, right? That’s why I made the decision to also bring about positive changes in the supermarket bakery section and prove that there are other SIMPLE ways to make muffins and cookies. Eating healthy is great, and eating healthy can feel just as decadent as eating foods that are full of empty calories and refined sugar.
It’s sometimes necessary to break with conventions and dare to think outside of the box. And that’s what I’ve done. There’s an ever-increasing number of people with food allergies and intolerances. Products are mega processed and we then wonder what’s happening with society. I decided something needed to be done: less refined sugar, less dubious fats, less empty calories, less preservatives, less artificial ingredients that lower the cost of products and more genuine, wholesome ingredients.
