It was 2016. I was staying with some friends who’d recently gone Keto, and I really needed a snack. There wasn’t much around, but I found some homemade granola in a cupboard.
I was skeptical. (But desperate.) Keto was still new to the scene, and I had my own dietary restrictions to worry about. Could it really be sugar-free, low-carb and still be satisfying? My friend said it was delicious.
Just a handful. Okay, two handfuls.
Two handfuls turned into a bowl. That bowl turned into a request for the recipe and, when I got home, I made my very first batch.
Tweaking it. Jazzing it up. Batch after batch, like a mad woman. It started out as just a healthy snack for my husband and I -- to fit our tastes and our lifestyle. That meant it had to be delicious. But it also had to be satisfying, packed full of nutrition, and aligned with our dietary practices.
Soon we were eating it all the time, taking it with us everywhere. And people started to take notice, asking us to try some. We were happy to share! We loved it.
They did too.
We started giving it away as gifts, realizing that we’d created something that not only tasted amazing but worked for friends and family who had dietary restrictions. Some of whom hadn’t enjoyed a snack like this for years.
That first taste, first satisfying crunch. When we saw their faces light up, and like me, that first handful become a second. When they realized they could enjoy something they thought they might never have again.
The joy we felt in those moments changed everything.
That’s when our favorite family snack became a dream to offer up something bigger: blood-sugar friendly foods that were not only ideal for almost any diet, but satisfying, nutritious, and so damn delicious you can’t stop eating them.
