Here’s the scenario; you have been on the Paleo diet for about two weeks. You are feeling great, your sleep hasn’t been better, you feel like a professional athlete at the gym, you meal prepped all your food, nothing can stop you! Until it hits you, the sugar cravings. You don’t know what to do, you are rummaging through your pantry to find some fruits but no luck. You think “I’ll just drink some water” but that doesn’t work either. It’s coming on stronger now. You mouth is salivating at the thought of eating a chocolate chip cookie or a candy bar. Your body starts to sweat and you crack. You drive down to your nearest grocery store and load up your cart with all the nasty sugar stuff. You go home, open a box of powdered donuts and binge your favorite Netflix series.
The sugar craving is gone, and now the guilt starts to set in. It’s ok, we are all guilty of this. Sugar is addicting, and it’s hard to kick the habit when it’s literally everywhere. At our office parties, at the stores, in our schools, in our homes hidden in our drinks and sauces! It’s hard to avoid. But when that sugar craving hits, what do you do? You want to stay Paleo but you also want to have delicious sweets too! I have the solution for you.
I totally get you and that’s why we created PBH Foods in the first place. When Josy and I started this company we set out to do one thing: Create delicious treats that just so happen to be paleo and keto, not the other way around. We decided to create delicious tasting treats first and focus on the paleo and keto part later. In the now 8 years we have been in business, we have created everything from Paleo Cinnamon Roll bites to Paleo Cinnamon Apple Empanadas. Don’t even get me started on our Paleo Chocolate Chip Donuts! All of our paleo desserts meet strict paleo (or keto) guidelines. PBH Foods desserts will always be gluten free, dairy free, refined sugar and oil free. Our paleo and keto treats are made with almond flour and coconut oil, nutritional powerhouses. Also, the chocolate we use for our famous chocolate chip cookies are paleo AND keto friendly!
With PBH Foods, you can have your cake and eat it too (no pun intended). Are you a chocolate fan? We have Paleo Walnut Brownies! Miss the staple Chocolate Chip Cookie? Yup, we make Paleo and Keto Chocolate Chip cookies too. Basically, we have removed any excuses you have to fall off the Paleo and Keto diet wagon. We want to make sure you stay on the perfect paleo path and you can still have sweets that are not only delicious, but they are good for you. Our paleo desserts are sweetened with the superfood, honey. Honey has antibacterial and antiviral properties that help your immune system and fight off disease. Honey is also a natural preservative. Honey is also very low on the glycemic index. Honey is the perfect sweetener on the paleo diet that will create just enough sweetness that will kill your bad sugar cravings.
Our Paleo desserts are made with almond flour, which is an amazing source of healthy fats! We do understand that some people have nut allergies and we promise we are working on other flour alternatives in the future. Almonds are also known for having a load of antioxidants which can help in fighting aging, inflammation and disease. Almonds are also considered among the world's best sources of vitamin E! There are numerous health benefits from getting vitamin E from foods. Almonds are also extremely high in magnesium. High magnesium intake may help in improving aid to metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes. Low magnesium levels are strongly linked to high blood pressure, indicating that almonds can help control blood pressure. You can get all these benefits with only eating one or two handfuls of almonds per day! How amazing is that! By eating almonds,you can have a small reduction in “bad” LDL cholesterol, which can potentially reduce the risk of heart disease.While nuts are low in carbs, they are high in protein and fiber which is great for building muscle and help in digestion. Studies show that eating almonds and other nuts can increase fullness and help you eat fewer calories.Though almonds are high in calories, eating them doesn’t seem to promote weight gain. Some studies even suggest the opposite, showing that almonds can enhance weight loss.
As you can probably tell, here at PBH Foods, we are nutrition nerds. I know I mostly covered honey and almonds in this post, but we have so many more delicious ingredients that go into your paleo sweets. We want to ensure all your paleo desserts are nutrient dense but also extremely delicious, like our Paleo Cinnamon Apple Empanadas. We set out to create the best paleo desserts you have ever tried! With hundreds of positive reviews and over 8 years in business, we are serious about making the best paleo desserts. Throughout the years, we have hand crafted some of the best paleo and keto cookies and donuts our customers have ever tried.
With PBH Foods, no matter where you are, you will always have a Paleo bakery near you. All you need to do is order our paleo or keto sweets from PBHFoods.com and we will freshly bake and ship your goodies right to your door. Yea, that’s right, we do not carry inventory in our local paleo bakery. This way, it ensures you receive the freshest, tastiest paleo cookies you’ve ever tasted.
